AROUND SINCE 2009...
WITH 2,000 FOLLOWERS

The state this client was located in has a population of roughly 6,000,000 people, and in seven full years since the creation of their page, they had a following of ~2,000 people. The client wanted to significantly increase their following in a quick manner and challenged us to grow their followers by 5x to > 10,000 by the end of the year (wait until you see the results!)

REQUIRED TRUSTWORTHY REPORTING

The report to the right is a sample of the year-end report the client received from the previous year from their previous agency. The agency touted a Click-Through-Rate in excess of .20%, however, when you run the numbers you see the CTR is significantly higher than it should be, not only in the totals but in the supporting data as well.

4,000 SESSIONS...2 SECOND VISITS

The previous agency drove a ~5,000 sessions during the previous year, however, a deeper dive within Google Analytics revealed that the average time-on-site from their source was 2 Seconds. This was 54.5X worse than their overall average time-on-site of 1 Minute and 47 Seconds. They needed to drive traffic to their site who was interested in engaging with their content and learning more about their message.

OBJECTIVE 1
DRIVE SOCIAL LIKES

We started by reviewing the client’s existing social efforts. After noticing a pattern of infrequent posting, content that didn’t drive engagement, and slow organic growth, we decided to implement an approach where we posted regularly with content that ranged from helpful recipes to humorous visuals. 

 

To engage the audience, we implemented a Share the Recipe campaign. This allowed the client to showcase many delicious beef recipes to promote their unique value to their community. 

OBJECTIVE 2 
DRIVE ENGAGED WEBSITE TRAFFIC

The client was driving significant traffic to their website, but the overwhelming majority of these sessions bounced. We decided to align our social strategy with the right messaging on the website to direct visitors to relevant pages.

 THE STRATEGY THAT SIZZLED 

By overhauling their social strategy, we were able to create sizzle-worthy results that added spice to their organic presence and sparked a flame with their audience.

 
OBJECTIVE 1
DRIVE SOCIAL LIKES

Our Social Team took inspiration from popular social media accounts like “Tasty” and decided to combine helpfulness and humor to promote the client’s mouth-watering beef recipes. We implemented a Like Page CTA ad format along with eye-catching creatives to drive traffic and likes for their social pages.

OBJECTIVE 2
DRIVE ENGAGED WEBSITE TRAFFIC

As you saw in the challenge portion of this case study, the client was driving significant traffic to their website, but the majority of these sessions bounced.

 

To increase engagement, we brought in Programmatic Display and Email Marketing for this part of the campaign to drive site traffic and reach more audience members at the top of the funnel.
