Deliberate Case Studies

TwitProGro Case Study (2015)

In summer 2014 we performed a TwitProGro Twitter Fan Acquisition and Conversation Engagement campaign for a Major Studio Theatrical film with a $90 million budget opening on 3,000+ screens. Over the 5 month campaign, we grew the population by 714% through direct daily outreach to targeted fans. We converted 21,000+ new fans directly through our efforts, which out of the 32,000 new fans over the period is a Direct Qualified Conversion rate of 66%– 2 of every 3 Twitter followers came directly from us.

In addition to delivering Quantity, we improved the Quality of the Twitter followers of the title dramatically, dropping the Fake Followers from 18% to 4% and improving the Good Followers- ones likely to engage with and share content- from 40% to 73%. Overall, we delivered a Cost Per Follow of 80 cents, which is significantly lower than through Twitter Ads.

As the result of the Direct Message and Tweet Favoriting components of our TwitProGro campaign, the engagement on the profile was off the charts, as we generated a halo effect from our outreach which caused an additional shockwave of visibility to the profile. Overall, the TwitProGro campaign was an unqualified success.

Paramount Centennial Campaign (2012)

Client: Paramount Pictures

Conceptualized, designed, launched and managed a year-long Facebook program for Paramount Home Media Distribution celebrating the 100 Year Anniversary of Paramount Pictures. We designed, programmed, implemented and launched a pair of Facebook tabs that went up on the Facebook Pages of over 120 films’ pages throughout 2012 for their Centennial Celebration.

One of them was a monthly sweepstakes: We built an age-gated iframe with a Splash page, a custom data capture form and Thank You page. It went on a dozen pages per month, rotating each month to coincide with the monthly theme.

The other tab is a monthly themed tab that incorporates many elements including a poll, CTA to the contest and a drive to Blu-ray/ DVD sales links and Facebook Likes. The Like buttons are dynamic so you can add the pages without leaving the tab. Starting with the May tab, they were redesigned in 810 pixels width to optimize the space provided by Facebook’s shift to Timeline for pages.

Here are the 12 monthly themes:

Results: Over the course of the campaign, we garnered over 1.2 Million Tab Views, got over 57,000 sweepstakes entries, collected over 11,000 emails for the Paramount Newsletter, and received over 9,000 poll votes.

Working directly with the digital marketing team of Sony Pictures, we spearheaded a broad Facebook and Twitter awareness campaign for the film Julie & Julia.

We used the Twitter platform to spread the word about upcoming screenings, host Twitter chats with cast members, and a “Feed Your Inspiration” promotion.
The scope of our campaign encompassed:
