Acquisition (3/3) - Lookalike Audiences

"This powerful form of social advertising enables you to acquire contacts similar to your best customers by sharing their demographic and/or behavioral data with social platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. 
The social network then identifies additional users that have similar characteristics and allows you to create supertargeted communications

Acquisition (2/3) - Social Advertising 🎯

"Social networks have an immense amount of user data. Today, they offer marketers advanced targeting options that can be used in a variety of strategic ways. Examples include:

  • Interest-based targeting: Match users’ reported or known areas of interest, such as a particular sport, profession, industry, product, travel, etc. 
  • Behavioral-based targeting: Leverage behaviors such as app downloads, purchases, likes, etc. to drive relevant content. 
  • Location-based targeting: Reach audiences within certain geographic parameters, such as the radius of a city, and provide related offers. 

Marketers also have the option of creating custom audiences, in which they provide a list of people they want to target based not only on social data, but also demographic data and behavioral actions taken outside of the social network (case study downloads, product purchases, email opens, etc.). Regardless of which combination of approaches you take, consider making social advertising an integral part of your acquisition efforts."

Acquisition (1/3) - Social Login 👥

In its article "15 Ideas for Anchoring Your Marketing Approach Around Customer Behaviors and Preferences", IBM Marketing Cloud is talking about Acquisition.

"With constant pressure in many companies to grow their contact list/database, acquisition is a key function for the majority of marketers. Typically, effective marketers use a combination of several tactics to drive database growth, including events, focus groups, content marketing, print/TV/radio advertising, SEO, paid media, social, telemarketing, email, SMS and more. Some marketers tend to focus on more outbound activities despite the potential for inbound marketing to substantially improve lead generation results. If your message is already resonating with an individual, then there’s a good chance of that person converting from an unknown to a known lead through the acquisition process. Here are some easy-to-implement tactics to help enhance your acquisition efforts:

More than 2 billion people (about 1/3 of the world’s population) use social networks. Allowing customers to register using one of their social IDs such as Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn can help make the opt-in experience faster and better, something that’s even more critical given the increase in engagement on smartphones, where filling out forms can be cumbersome. 

From a marketer’s perspective, this reduces form abandonment and provides access to key pieces of customers’ social profile data (exact fields vary depending on the social network) that can be used to retarget and personalize the customer experience. Relatively easy to implement, social login is a list acquisition strategy you should strongly consider if you aren’t already employing it."
