HOW I CAN HELP:

+ develop an archetype for documentation & delivery of content +

Working with you, assistance can be provided to review, determine and document buyer personas. These categories can form the basis of any meta-tags or hashtags # used throughout all digital touch points, as well as provide a structure for collation & sharing of marketing content, both internally and externally.

This work can be undertaken independently and delivered to you for review, or can be undertaken collaboratively      

Development & delivery of a social media colour palette and style guide including identification & development of significant points of differentiation that require targeting to enhance the brands visual identity

Experience & exploration provides that the following platforms aid in the streamlining of communication required to collaborate and deliver scheduled marketing content…
            + Dropbox or equivalent for text based content;
            + Secret Group Pinterest Boards for cataloguing visual storyboards & article links relative to each category and sub-group, as well as the scouting & documentation of portfolios of potential new contributors & influencers whose brands align with the categories; and
           

+ social media establishment & acquisition +

Generate & identify available Pinterest account names for approval

‘Link’ & ‘Sync’ all social accounts

Create 4 Pinterest 'boards' & ‘post’ and ‘pin' a minimum of 5 images to each platform (images to be sourced from what is available across the Mint Cloud website &/or any identified affiliates (market) websites)

Identify 5 industry 'influencers' & 'Like' a minimum of 10 pins/posts from the influencers boards, feed or pages

Follow' any brand affiliates or sponsored events

+ influencer & content acquisition (management) tools +


As a primary strategy, having determined the categories and buyer personas, their respective descriptors can be used to search and identify, the strongest aligned influencers, as well as relative trending topics, across multiple social platforms via various social media management tools that can be made available.

The investment in use of these tools allows for greater productivity and efficiency in research, sourcing, ongoing and responsive engagement of influencers, their tribes and the Mint Cloud tribe. These tools provide analytics, monitor and enable engagement, and source content from industry and category relevant articles that can be used to generate original content for a blog and other social media touch points. 
 

Utilise Hootsuite for content scheduling and live community engagement monitoring.

As influencers are identified, daily, authentic engagement via actively commenting and liking the feeds of these influencers, and their tribes, is able to drive community awareness, develop brand association and longer term, influence brand equity.

Guidelines as to what to like and comment can be understood to be images or communication in line with the mission statement, tag line, categories of the Mint Cloud philosophy and product.

In addition to the organic identification of influencers and content provided by the use of these tools, access to the Amuse database of influencers provides further opportunity for contributions to content and brand exposure.

Generous quantities (>150 per week) of unique likes of the content generated by influencers, their tribes and the Mint Cloud tribe across Instagram, Pinterest, Category relevant blogs and Facebook, authentically (not algorithm based) undertaken, not only engages directly with the consumer and generates market presence, but can also provide the opportunity to invite & encourage reviews of Mint Cloud product, service & quality of both. The quantity and quality of content generated via these strategies will primarily rely on the quantity and quality of time spent executing them.
