Technology integration enables brands to apply insights from owned social programs to optimize and increase the impact of paid social advertising campaigns.
Paris (October 10, 2013) – Tigerlily, the intelligent social media marketing platform and Facebook Preferred Marketing Developer (PMD) since 2011, today announced that it has integrated with Skai Social, a leading global social marketing platform and Facebook Strategic Preferred Marketing Developer (sPMD) for Facebook Ads with native access to the Facebook Exchange (FBX). The partnership offers brands an integrated Social Media Marketing solution for seamless creation, measurement and optimization of paid, owned (organic) and earned social media initiatives.
Tigerlily is using Skai Social to create, manage and optimize paid advertising programs for its social media marketing clients and has integrated Skai Social tracking technology into the Tigerlily platform to enable the measurement of conversions and revenue resulting from end customer interactions with owned social media posts.
“By combining Skai Social’s paid advertising data and the social relationship data generated through the Tigerlily platform, we provide ever more enlightening insights to clients, and offer them one of the most integrated Social Media Marketing SaaS solutions on the market. This functionality fosters a holistic approach to social content, focusing on providing brands with a comprehensive understanding of their social media initiatives across owned, earned or paid media. Marketers can use the insights gained about communities through interactions with owned assets to enhance the impact of paid media, understanding how paid and owned activity combines to influence the performance of their overall social marketing programs. Tigerlily and Skai Social help marketers understand the customer journey, tracking each interaction throughout the purchase process and providing powerful insights to improve ROI. For Tigerlily this partnership is a milestone in the company’s history asserting its ambition to prove itself as one of Europe’s top Social Media Marketing Software providers,” said Matthieu Chéreau, CEO of Tigerlily.
“Advertisers who use Skai Social and Tigerlily together can create, manage and optimize their social media marketing campaigns in a true end-to-end manner. Social community managers can understand the sales and revenue contribution of their organic posting activity across social networks and optimize their activity toward direct response goals. Paid social media managers gain insight into the owned media or organic posts that generate the most conversions and can selectively amplify these based on direct response metrics provided by Skai Social, rather than brand awareness metrics, such as likes, comments and shares, which do not necessarily correlate to sales,” explained Will Martin Gill, Senior VP Product at Kenshoo.
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to customize the customer relationship
With the insights delivered through Skai’s tracking technology, marketers are can analyse the specific behavior of each user and customer segment based on performance data from social advertising campaigns and user information provided by the Tigerlily platform. This ABA will enable marketers to create personalized promotions to increase the average order value (AOV) per customer, thereby maximizing return on investment (ROI).
