Community Management & Customer Engagement
Powering Success: Transforming Lead Nurturing Through Community Management
Kohler Home Energy, a prominent manufacturer of generators and power solutions, launched a multi-million-dollar social media campaign to expand its market reach and engage with new audiences. This extensive campaign triggered a surge in comments, inquiries, and product discussions, compelling the need for a proactive approach to community management.
Our Strategic Approach
In our pursuit of not just maintaining a pristine brand image but also transforming the surge in social activity into qualified leads, enhancing customer experiences, optimizing paid social campaigns, and ushering in new sales opportunities, we seamlessly integrated social community management into Kohler Home Energy’s lead nurturing strategy.
The result? A holistic approach that not only nurtured leads but also built and nurtures relationships with potential customers. Our approach can be divided into several key components:
Turning Prospects Into Qualified Leads Through Consumer Education
Monitoring social media conversations and engagements allowed us to identify trending topics, common questions, and content resonating with the audience. Leveraging these insights, we crafted informative blog posts, fueled our social medial updates, and wove these elements into our drip campaigns and monthly emails, empowering customers to make well-informed decisions.
A testament to our success, in response to customer demand for quotes on our social ads, we introduced a “Can I get an instant quote online?” email as part of the national drip campaign. This led to significantly higher open rates and more unique clicks compared to other email campaigns.
Fueled by first-hand conversation insights, our email marketing strategies produced elevated engagement.
