How can your Digital Marketing Manager use LoudCrowd?

The Digital Marketing Manager should spend time in the Program tab and Social CRM tab.

Program tab:

  • Once your social rewards program is created, navigate to the Program tab to track your membership, posts, and analytics coming from your program members. Here are a few metrics you can track to gauge how well your program is performing:

    • Weekly Sign-ups

    • How many rewards have been sent

    • Filtering for a specific date range to see if you've had an increase or decrease in your posts, impressions, engagement rate, and earned media value compared to the previous date range

  • Utilize the custom field data you're collecting data from your social rewards members for targeted outreach via SMS or email. To do so, go to the Members tab, select all members, then click the Actions drop down and select Export to collect all of their data. A few custom field responses you can start collecting today:

    • TikTok username

    • Phone number

    • Address

    • City

    • Terms & Conditions

    • Size

Social CRM:

  • Find new customers to nurture or invite to your social rewards program by applying filters in the Social CRM.

To find those customers, click the All Customers drop down button, and click the First Post: Last 7 Days saved filter.
