Deeper Social CRM Functionality Added to Awareness Social Marketing Hub With Facebook Campaign ManagerEnables Capture and Integration of Deep Social Profile Data via Flexible Promotional Offerings (December 12, 2011)
BURLINGTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/12/11 -- Awareness Inc., provider of on-demand social marketing management software (SMMS), today announced expanded Social CRM functionality with the launch of its new Facebook Campaign Manager. Awareness Social Marketing Hub customers now have the ability to implement a variety of promotions on Facebook while capturing and integrating deep social profile data with leading CRM and marketing automation platforms, such as Salesforce.com, Marketo and Eloqua.
The Awareness Facebook Campaign Manager allows social media-savvy companies to create and manage custom Facebook tabs within the Awareness Social Marketing Hub at no additional charge. Launching with a set of templates for frequently used promotional elements -- welcome tabs, coupon offerings and YouTube channel integration -- the Facebook Campaign Manager enables deep social profile data collection that includes email address, other Facebook "likes," location, birthday and relationship status, among others. The flexibility of the Facebook Campaign Manager allows for the creation and design of Facebook tabs with knowledge of simple HTML. With pre-built integration into leading marketing automation and CRM systems, this new functionality allows companies to track conversations and build social profile databases to better understand and engage followers.
"The social realm is where companies and prospects increasingly meet each other," says David Carter, CTO for Awareness Inc." Whether companies are targeting business prospects with white papers and educational content, or offering specials to end consumers, they now have the insight to understand what motivates prospects to purchase."
The new Facebook Campaign Manager from Awareness also allows users to build custom branded campaigns, fully integrated with the Awareness Social Marketing Hub, enabling a holistic view of companies' social audiences across channels. This new feature allows companies to capture Facebook user data on Social Profiles, along with historical data on comments, "likes" and other campaigns, enabling a centralized, holistic view of companies' social audience. Brands can now centrally manage Facebook campaigns while assigning permissions and controls to team members. The system also allows users to set campaign start and end dates, campaign priorities and to specify which profile elements to collect for each campaign. The new tool equally serves the needs of internal social marketing teams and agencies managing social media marketing for their clients.
"We are finally moving away from harvesting superficial fan and follower data to collecting meaningful audience insights that will help us target social content for engagement and conversation," says Taulbee Jackson, president and CEO of Raidious, one of the leading interactive agencies, which recently converted the majority of its clients to the Awareness Social Marketing Hub. "The new Facebook Campaign Manager from Awareness adds the needed layer of deep social profile data that adds to our clients' CRM databases, augments their customer understanding and helps us hone in on the types of profiles most likely to interact with our customers' brands and offerings."
