Broadening the conversion funnel and developing ROI by identifying ways to make product education fun and personal on social goes far beyond credit for me. In past lives, I've worked on social strategy in web and television entertainment, for agencies and agency clients, for the highly regulated medical and finance verticals, for startups, and for the e-commerce office supplies industry.
At LD Products, I was tasked with building a social presence and digital brand for an incredible company with no consumer social relationship. As part of the strategy, I made a bunch of videos like this:
When I first started working at freecreditscore.com, I was tasked with building a digital and social, interactive brand. I wanted to demonstrate with a "splash" that we were listening, responding, and hitting social and digital full force. The Make a Better Commercial... Contest called out tweets where people hated on our new spot, and challenged them to do better. The app we built for this allowed the user to choose from 5 different openings, 20 different endings, and for them to "green screen" themselves in with our actors. We also gave them the chance to write their own, and we had web celebs Rhett and Link act out the winners. For fun, you could enter in every way thinkable, including fax. In fact, if you were the winning faxer, you won a Brett Michaels autographed fax as a tribute to our TV spots running at the time.
The proper digital and social extensions allow you to re-tell the brand message in many different, personalized ways to different segments. I grabbed an iPhone and got some behind-the-scene footage of our projection mapping TV spots to demonstrate our pillars of People and Technology while earning shared media.
Influencers and YouTube stars, Rhett and Link
