Ease of use, powerful moderation and visual display of user-generated content set new standard in self-service social media marketing.
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–November 6, 2013–
Offerpop, a leading social marketing software company, has released Hashtag Gallery, a solution that allows brands to unite social media with traditional marketing channels, compile and store user-generated content, and showcase hashtag campaign content in a single location.
Hashtag Gallery capitalizes on an exploding trend: brands everywhere are including hashtags in their TV commercials, print and digital ads, and other marketing programs.
With Hashtag Gallery, brands collect, manage and showcase user-generated content related to these hashtags in a seamless branded display, on websites, auto-generated landing pages, or Facebook tabs. Through these campaigns brands encourage passionate consumers to share photos, videos, and posts. These engaged communities span multiple mediums and generate an expansive library of valuable user-generated content that can be repurposed for marketing and merchandizing programs.
“The convergence of social and mobile is fundamentally changing consumer behavior. People are spending less time consuming traditional brand content, and more time making and sharing content — photos, videos, and tweets,” said Prakash Mishra, co-founder and Chief Technology Officer for Offerpop. “That’s why hashtags matter. Hashtag Gallery gives brands ways to turn consumer content into relevant, real-time consumer engagement, amplifying the reach and authenticity of traditional marketing programs.”
Marketers have struggled to organize, respond to and reuse consumer posts that include their branded hashtags. Hashtag Gallery automates this process, allowing time-strapped social marketers to track and follow up with responses in real time. Through auto-responding to entries with custom messages and “claim your entry” links, marketers can easily get permission to repurpose user-generated content. They can also incentivize and reward consumers with daily, weekly, or monthly prizes.
Marketers can create and launch their Hashtag Gallery campaigns in minutes, with no custom development required. With Hashtag Gallery’s powerful back-end moderation capabilities, marketers can choose to approve entries before publication. And they can view program metrics like unique visitors and participation in real time, allowing for campaign optimization.
Offerpop’s launch of Hashtag Gallery includes an early access package that rewards marketers that launch a Hashtag Gallery campaign in November with hands-on help from Offerpop’s team of social media strategists, who work with brands like Audi, American Express and NBC Universal.
