Why should my organization run joint social media campaigns?
Running a joint social media campaign, such as a giveaway, opens up the possibility of a high return and the ability to serve your audience. Giveaways can allow your organization to thank its supporters by picking a winner and giving them, for example, a VIP experience at your theater or event. Collaborations can look different depending on your industry. Let’s go ahead and talk about strategies that you can take when adopting joint campaigns into your marketing strategy. It all start’s by taking the first step into building a relationship with another organization.
How to develop an organization-to-organization relationship.
Now you understand the value of a joint campaign and the opportunity within, it’s time to talk to start taking steps towards initiating the conversation with the potential organization you are interested in collaborating with. The best way to do this is to start small and organically explore the opportunities in your industry. Each industry will have space for your organization to share and work with another organization.
We have provided you a guideline for how this conversation may look.
Reach out to a non-competing organization in your industry and schedule a meeting to discuss how you might be able to benefit from each other.
Explain that you’re looking for more ways to provide your audience great, engaging content and you think your organizations might be able to work together to help each reach each individual’s goals. Be honest about your organization’s goals and challenges, and ask them to be honest about theirs.
Examples of different kinds of collaborations:
A great place to start looking for potential collaborations is right in your backyard. When it comes to your local community the possibilities are endless. For example, plan a block party where a bunch of local businesses together and celebrate each other. Another great idea is to have a local ice cream parlor come to table as a vendor at your organization. Maybe even have an event for families and kids. The goal is to build a big-picture strategic partnership that allows you to share customers and opportunities over the long-term.
Utilize social media to reach potential ticket buyers who you may not normally be able to reach. Be the example by creating a band on social media that coveys your product or service as being strong, professional and influential. Also, be sure to build relationships with organizations you believe your followers will also enjoy and deploy a co-created product or service into the industry.
Identifying key influencers can be quite a task. Think about who in your industry has a following and a platform that would reach your largest demographic target audience. For instance, you played Parasite at your theater the past few weeks. Reach out to the PR for local celebrities and see about setting up a collaboration that could be beneficial for both parties involved.
