How do you make an unknown brand compelling in social media?


Answer by Andrew Krebs-Smith:

You can make an unknown brand compelling in social media by engaging with users who self-identify as members of your target audience, showing them where they can get what they’re looking for. With a limited budget, a large-scale campaign may not be feasible. In this case, focusing on reaching out to individual people, or groups of people, is a more cost-efficient way to position your brand as compelling to the people who matter most. Twitter is an effective tool for doing this because you can access the billions of conversations occurring all over the world. Think of keywords your target audience might be tweeting about. If it’s a local business, as you mentioned, you can narrow down the search results by location on

An example of how this can be put into practice is in regards to a client we worked on not too long ago. The brand was a local women’s gym, one that had a unique offering: a stiletto workout class. Using to unearth all of the people in the NYC area who were tweeting about stiletto workouts, we were able to reach out and let them know where they can find exactly what they’re looking for.

V: Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valourous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition! The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honour to meet you and you may call me V.
