Quality Content Control

2nd of January 2020

Content for advertising campaigns needs to be of consistently high quality and should be shown to reflect the same tone as your brand. Being consistent with your content means you're committing time, resource and strategic thinking to your campaign, which in turn allows you to create a process that will be proven and improved over time. By developing a clear and consistent strategy you are crafting a compelling brand story that will inspire your chosen audience.

At Soello we're trying to encourage more ads across Instagram stories. Instagram stories to run social ads are a great way to creatively inspire your audience. The first few seconds of your ad matters the most, in 10 seconds or less, you can influence and entice your chosen audience to take action depending on the quality and consistency of the content you are presenting them with. The most effective ads include the branding in the first 3 seconds and convey a brand’s key message in a quick, easy to understand and attention-grabbing way.

So, get creative and look at other brands for reference when delivering your Instagram stories ad.

A few stats to back this up:

-> People consume content 41% faster on mobile than desktop so it’s important to bring your most exciting frame to the front.

-> Get playful with framing and speed. 98% of people use their phones vertically so it’s important to build ads to match how people consume content.

-> Find a balance between message and time. Ads under 15 seconds work the best in feed, and top-performing stories ads work best under 10 seconds.

Social Perception

1st of June 2020

It’s now more important than ever to stay connected with your audience. With so many people spending more time at home, internet usage has only continued to keep rising. With this taken into account, it’s important to really think about what you're putting out onto the web, and more importantly, how you’re choosing to word it.

While some experts say brands should not be using this time to shout from the rooftops, some say brands shouldn’t shy from saying anything at all, this is because there’s potential for meaningful relationships to be built even during a crisis. Using this time to echo or amplify your brand's message could benefit your business as young consumers especially are prone to reward a brand they believe shares their values.

Building your unique brand story on social media involves telling it through different social platforms. This can be challenging without the right messages. Without getting your messaging right, you could be potentially missing out on valuable opportunities to engage consumers and build brand loyalty. When you tell your brand narrative on social media in a way that resonates with the right customers, the follows, clicks, shares, and likes will soon follow. Maintaining this communication between your brand and your audience and delivering socially responsible messages during a time of uncertainty is critical. This is because audiences will turn to you to answer questions around existing orders and to deliver content that shows consideration.

Whilst building and developing compelling content for your online campaigns might seem daunting, it’s always good to remember not everything has to make a big statement. Simple tactics like stating your values, ethos, and objectives while supporting your customer's needs could be the most underrated strategy.

WIP: Meat Hook

1st of May 2020

Meat Hook, suppliers of the finest quality meat to restaurants across the South West had to make a change to the way they were doing business.

The impact of COVID-19 encouraged the business to take to the streets of Bristol to deliver Meat Boxes straight to the consumer's door (contact-free).

Having never touched digital marketing, we've been working hard to build a community and generate Meat Box sales through social media channels.

We've been really pleased with the response so far and thrilled to see so many supporters during what is quite a difficult time. Not just for business, but for local communities, families, and individuals.
