NAIL.social/STRATEGY

Too much blah blah blah?
Hover over any text.

We get it, you probably clicked on "strategy" with some trepidation. We know there is no industry full of more nonsense and doublespeak than ad strategy. Much of it is a smoke screen to obscure the hard reality that there is no silver bullet, no magic formula, no proprietary process that guarantees success.  

Our strategies are designed to flex, fit on one slide, and contain no buzzwords. The recipe is simple. Know the platforms. Know the pitfalls. Know the culture. Make a plan and then fix the plan when the inputs change.  And they always do.

Organic Social Strategy

Context Acquisition

We take a deep dive on your product or service, your audience, your capabilities and assets, and of course, your competition.

Campaign Development

We come up with a campaign that can live on its own or within an exisiting campaign. This includes concepts and recommendations for all four levels our Organic Social Hierarchy of Needs™.

Ongoing Support

We've found that success is best ensured when we can provide ongoing support and guidance.  This includes social listening, identifying opportunities and trends, and content inspiration.

Paid Social Strategy

Context Acquisition

Context is everything.  We take a deep dive on your product or service, your audience, your capabilities and assets, and of course, that pesky competition of yours.

Audience Development

We find your people, your tribe, your future customers wherever they may be, and then built hyper targeted audiences on all relevant platforms. Our strategy is built on finding the biggest and best audience your budget can achieve.

This is where the pieces come together. We map out all the touch points, messaging, and frequency of all the ads.  Then we set budgets, KPI, and reporting expectations to guide whomever is doing the management.

Funnel Development

Case Study

*We don't publish our clients' names. Feel free to ask though.

Client: Foundation of a Forbes top 20 billionaire

Objective: Drive viewership of an annual live stream event.

Challenge: Getting people to click through to a website takes skill.  Getting people to click through to a live stream about government spending on a Tuesday morning in a 30-minute window... takes planning.

Strategy:

  • We determined that if we started a live stream from a Facebook Event in a certain way, it would  trigger a push notification on the phone of people who were 'interested' in going.

  • We built 8 distinct audiences and served them unique video assets to build awareness and to populate a retargeting audience.

  • Those retargeting audiences were served Facebook Event Response ads.

  • The people who selected 'interested' or 'going' were retargeted with reminder ads the day before and day of the event.

  • We also identified a loophole that allowed us to use an actual live stream video as ad creative, which we used during the live stream and served the "live-ad" to retargeted audiences.  This loophole has since been closed.

 

Result: Previous year's event had 1,000 views.  We set an aggressive goal of 10,000 viewers. We delivered 24,000.

Client talk: "A novice agency would have panicked after day 3 of our campaign and packed their bags and went home. A good agency would likely have delivered a great awareness campaign and enticed a few new followers, but would have never gotten us to our goals. Working with NAIL.social made me realize that I left no room for the B team, we needed an agency that was wildly creative and knew the undocumented mysteries of paid social campaigns; one that possessed the tribal knowledge that you can only acquire from testing and experimenting on real campaigns, and lots of them. We had impossibly short timelines to deliver, a very young brand with little market traction, and high expectations for an event that hadn't even been fully conceptualized at the time the advertising began. Curve balls, Constraints, Risks? Yep, we threw them all at NAIL.social. And they far surpassed my every expectation. They made a high-pressure situation less sweaty, and I would even venture to call it fun."
