Check out more details below on some best practices we recommend to help you increase your digital campaigns Engagement and Virality Scores.

Engagement Score (ES): 53

  • Offer your consumers their version of an Emmy. Many brands will offer their customers generic rewards: discounts, free shipping, and free products (not to say consumers don’t love these things – as a consumer, we do!). But, catering your promotion rewards to your fans interests will increase participation and engagement, which is exactly what L’Oréal did with their tailored television themed beauty kits.
  • Pair multiple campaign use cases. Using multiple different types of use cases is smart way to increase engagement and the functionality of a campaign. By using the fan faves and sign up components, L’Oréal created a more engaging promotion for their consumers.
  • Integrate your campaign with your internal marketing platforms. Integrating your campaign with your internal marketing and sales platforms (e.g., Salesforce, email integrations) is a great way to continue to engage and reengage consumers that participated in a campaign.

Virality Score (VS): <25

  • Build your campaign around an event. L’Oréal Paris’ campaign was built around the Emmy Awards, which is a great tactic for inserting your brand into a larger moment and connecting your campaign to the types of content your consumers are already searching for and sharing.
  • Have consumers share their favorites. After cats and wine memes, beauty tutorials, both professional and amateur may be the most popular type of content popping up across social media. For beauty brands, incorporating a sharing element, either a campaign hashtag, photo gallery, or refer-a-friend component, is a great way to increase the virality of a campaign.

L’Oréal Paris made great use of multiple campaign types and email integration to engage new consumers and lay the groundwork for reengaging consumers in future campaigns. Overall, their 2017 Emmy Awards Beauty Kit promotion was a primetime hit!
