Market Research and Analysis

  • Target market determination
    • Who are the best audiences to target for your business objectives?
  • User Persona Creation
    • Who are the audiences under your target market?
    • What is the best way to communicate to them?
    • How are your competitors reaching out to them?

Knowing the people you want to reach out to sets the direction of what your campaign looks and feels like. Most people get this down. What distinguishes great campaigns from good ones is knowing that there’s more than the general segments of people. It’s not enough to settle with gunning for women or children or the elderly. We need to know how they think, what their motivations are, and on who they’re willing to depend on. That way, we build strategies out of accurate representations of our target market instead of caricatures.

Creatives creation

  • Content Ideation
    • How does your target audience behave and communicate in each channel?
    • How compelling are your copies?
    • Are your creatives and messagers aligned to your brand identity?
    • Are your ad creatives good enough to drive action?
  • Landing Page
    • What campaign are you running?
    • How will your landing page lead to the desired customer action?
    • Is your landing page responsive for mobile and desktop?
    • Is it fast enough to satisfy better user experience?

Social media is a space shared by all, and that includes your competitors. This means your ad content arsenal shouldn’t just be witty captions or eye-catching visuals. Your content should contain the following: relevance, value, and a call to action that highlights your desired customer action. These are things we drill down in any ads we produce for you. Ad assets are crucial parts of your campaign and that’s why we want to produce yours in a way that stands out in a sea of ads.
