Give Miami Day – It’s All About Giving

Company Analysis: 

Velocity Social Media is a social media management company that takes the hassle out of customer relations on the internet. Velocity Social Media builds and optimizes a great digital presence for business while businesses continue to do what they do best – run their business. 

Velocity Social Media moves businesses forward in an age where digital presence dominates the internet. They focus on providing a full spectrum of social media management services to local and regional small to medium-sized companies. They build a local social presence for a company’s brand.

Target Audience:

Their clients include attorneys, doctors, mechanics, financial institutions, national internet marketing companies, a Silicon Valley startup, a South American winery, wellness professionals, accountants, realtors, mechanics, a mortgage banker and an air conditioning company. 

Velocity Social Media helps businesses which do not have the time, understanding or expertise to professionally manage their own social media. They help businesses who wish to connect with customers, grow and engage their clientele, reflect their brand and stay in control of their social media management with a professional voice through management of all their social media and internet marketing needs. Through a boutique approach, they thrive on helping businesses with a personalized touch. 

Strengths:

  • Complementary Social Presence Portfolio (SPP) customizing and tailoring an internet marketing strategy best suited to a company’s needs.
  • Multi-lingual capability in Miami’s cultural Mecca – fluency in English, Spanish, French and Portuguese offers ability to reach large demographic
  • The company’s CEO has credibility as a candidate of the prestigious University of Florida’s Master’s Program in Mass Communication specializing in social media.
  • Diverse offerings per the company’s Services page on their website.
  • Strong reputation with community with clients across the USA and South America.

Opportunities:

  • Exclusive internet marketing firm, not PR or Marketing agency offering all things to everyone.
  • Boutique service, not cookie-cutter plans. Individualized plans depending on the services a firm would require. Can satisfy clients with this need.

Proposal for Integrated Marketing Communication Approach (IMC):

My proposal is for Velocity Social Media to run an event on October 20, 2016, utilizing IMC which will be complementary to all non-profits wishing to attend in order to teach these companies to maximize internet marketing, particularly social media, to capture the most donations possible on Give Miami Day sponsored by The Miami Foundation. Give Miami Day is a fundraising event movement which takes place each year, every Thursday before Thanksgiving, held for a 24 hour time period where non-profits compete to best achieve the highest number of donations in that period of time.

What is Give Miami Day?

As per the Give Miami Day website, “Give Miami Day allows all individuals in our community to make a philanthropic impact by collectively supporting our local nonprofit organizations.  Twenty-four hours of giving begins at midnight on November 19 and ends at midnight on November 20, 2015.  Throughout the day, individuals may view online profiles of more than 500 nonprofit organizations serving Miami-Dade County and make a charitable gift here on givemiamiday.org.”

Integrated Marketing Communication (IMC) Approach:

Velocity Social Media should utilize an integrated marketing communication (IMC) approach to run this event that is not only consistent with its method to help grow its customers’ businesses, but also applying this consistent brand messaging across both traditional and non-traditional marketing channels while using different promotional methods to reinforce each other to grow their very own business. According to the Houston Small Business Chronicle, “In the traditional approach to marketing communications, businesses and their agencies plan separate campaigns for advertising, press relations, direct marketing and sales promotions. Integrated campaigns use the same communication tools to reinforce each other and improve marketing effectiveness. In an integrated campaign, you can use advertising to raise awareness of a product and generate leads for the sales force.”

Why not help non-profits capitalize on social media to benefit good causes?

Closing Remarks

 Whether as a communications platform, education tool, selling platform or overall social activity, social media is the future and will continue to grow. Velocity Social Media stands in a position to be able to capture market share and audience growth providing educational tools to both the non-profit as well as the for profit businesses in the Miami community.

Hosting and sponsoring such an event as #DigitalGive in order to help local non-profit organizations reach a larger audience for the fundraising raising opportunities arising on Give Miami Day is an excellent way for Velocity Social Media to grow in name, reputation, branding efforts and overall visibility. Through the diverse strategies available in IMC, Velocity Social Media will apply this consistent brand messaging across both traditional and non-traditional marketing channels while using different promotional methods to reinforce each other to grow their very own business.

No other marketing agency is offering this type of service in Miami. The future looks busy and prosperous for Velocity Social Media. With the integrated marketing communication tools available, including the analytics provided with some of these IMC tools, the company is able to reach and capture an audience needing its services of #DigitalGive in preparation for Give Miami Day. The analysis and recommendations provided herein, Velocity Social Media will be able to reach that audience which will benefit from such a service.

WPPI 2016

For the purpose of my University of Florida Multimedia Communications class, my task was to follow, observe and critique the Wedding and Portrait Photography Expo (WPPI) which took place this past week (March 7-9) at the MGM Grand Las Vegas.

Screen Shot 2016-03-13 at 6.29.28 PM

As per the WPPI website, “The WPPI Wedding & Portrait Photography Conference+Expo is the premier industry event for photographers and filmmakers specializing in the creative and business aspects of wedding and portrait photography and filmmaking. Each year, nearly 13,000 professional and aspiring photographers and filmmakers attend WPPI to learn new techniques from industry leaders, build new relationships to grow their business, experience new products and solutions from major manufacturers to improve their productivity, and enjoy the many attractions in Las Vegas. WPPI is a week-long event combining educational seminars with a major industry trade show and networking events, all designed around learning the latest techniques, building new relationships and growing a business in a friendly, fun environment – all at one time, in one place.”

 With the advanced registration available to those who have pre-registered, significant discounts can be taken advantage of. Additionally, as per the WPPI website, “New for 2016, PHOTO+ Members (WPPI, PhotoServe) Get a FREE Full Platform Pass to WPPI 2016! ”

Even like this, though, non-members are not disenfranchised but allowed to purchase a “Full Platform Pass,” allowing the access to over “80 Platform Classes.”

The three-day expo offers an array of what’s latest and greatest in all things wedding, video, photo and film related.   Anyone who makes a career from these venues would benefit from attending this trade show event.

A video promoting visiting Las Vegas is highlighted as one of the very first posts on their website, showcasing the host city.

 

Registration information is detailed on the home page of the WPPI website as indicated by the following screenshot:

The WPPI social media management team went above and beyond to post accordingly onto all the sites.  Posting multiple updates regularly to both their Facebook and Twitter pages, the frequency of posts using “#wppi2016” along with consistent branded content allowed for even a non-attendee as myself to have a strong grasp on what was taking place daily throughout the event.

Additionally, Facebook and Twitter were the  social media channels mostly used prior, during and after the show to showcase the different activities taking place along with connecting and engaging with the customer. Before the event, their Facebook page, showcased specials that would be offered during the event from not only sponsors, but also event attendees.   Here’s an example of such a post:

Screen Shot 2016-03-13 at 7.09.48 PM

While their Twitter page posted non-stop before, during and after the event, their posts seemed to be most prevalent during as in  LIVE tweeting, particularly during their awards ceremony event as evidenced by this post:

Screen Shot 2016-03-13 at 7.16.12 PM.png

The sponsors, among them, SmartAlbumsKodak PixproCanon,  together with many others each have their logo featured on the bottom of the WPPI website in a rotating style with dedicated informational links back to a landing page detailing their show information along with a link for a contact at that respective company, with full address details and their Facebook page link as well.

Other examples of IMC included a sign up for their email marketing newsletter in addition to a link to their Photoforward blog, where posts and content were updated several times daily showcasing events taking place along with exhibitors and sponsor activities.

A mobile application download was also made available providing access to quick mobile updates.

Screen Shot 2016-03-13 at 8.10.42 PM

Though they included their YouTube and Instagram page links, in this respect, the team failed as they did not post any videos or images to these sites of the events, sponsors or participants taking place that week.  If they weren’t going to post videos or relevant images, and be current, then they should not have included those social icons to the site. That’s something that disappoints me regularly when visiting company websites.  Companies should not include social icons where regular activity and engagement are not being demonstrated.

Around the World in 30 days…The EPCOT Experience

As part of our University of Florida graduate program in Social Media, this week I’ve been tasked to be the hypothetical Social Media Manager for Disney’s EPCOT Center for the month of April 2016.   This is all hypothetical, just to showcase how, as a Social Media Manager, I’d personally plan EPCOT’s social media postings for one month.

So, without further delay, let’s take off on EPCOT’s (Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow’s) International journey for the month of April 2016.
