Branded Communities: Customer Support is within Reach

Kody Harlin, August 26, 2015

What do you think of when you hear the words “Reach,” “Impressions,” or the often disappointing term, “Engagement rate?” These common terms of measurement leave us and our clients sitting on the edge of our seats, contemplating thoughts such as, “How can we do better?” “Why is this happening?” or in some cases, “Where did I go wrong?”

The answer is simple: reach is at an all-time low for brands, impressions don’t hold a ton of value, and engagement rate doesn’t always indicate success or lack thereof.

Branded Communities: Facts and Features

James Thorpe, August 18, 2015

Brands are starting to catch on: Facebook sucks. (Please don’t tell Facebook I said that)

Getting good organic engagement hasn’t always been as difficult as it is now. As the norms of social media trend inescapably toward a ‘pay-to-play’ environment, the need to put dollars behind your content increases, and the ‘play’ you get for that ‘pay’ decreases by the minute.

No longer can you hope to build real word-of-mouth relationships without a pile of cash or a viral smash hit. If it’s not ‘pay-to-play,’ it’s ‘post and pray.’ Read More

How to Start a Branded Community

kcormier, August 10, 2015

Research, along with any online community manager, can now tell you social properties are not allowing brands to reach followers the way they used to.

Without paying for promoted posts or advertising, only a small percentage of your fans (less than 3%) are seeing your posts. That little fact, alone, could be the clincher that’s driving you to consider another channel for facilitating connections between interests and individuals: your own brand community.
