Engagement Score (ES)
- Appeal to your consumers’ inner critic. Whether we like to admit it or not, we all like to think we have the best taste and we know what we want and like. NatureSweet gave their fans the chance to play the critic and select their choice for the best designed recipe, a great way to encourage engagement.
Timing is everything. It’s important to ensure your campaign is timely to guarantee that it won’t be a total flop. Consumers are more likely to engage with a campaign that aligns with their current conversations, interests and activities -- and the content they’re sharing.
Virality Score (VS)
- Stagger your prizes or offer a multi-prize package. People love prizes! A great way to ensure consumers continue to engage with your campaign is to space out the prizes across multiple days, weeks, or months, or offer a multi-stage prize package. Staggering the prizes provides more opportunities for your consumers to win and will increase the likelihood that they continue to share and engage with your brand throughout the campaign.
