More Case Studies
This year, MIT Sloan Management Review needed an update to all their gated content and user access levels. This particular project took a lot of strategy and multiple structure options to ensure that both MIT SMR’s database program (ESP) worked cohesively with WordPress login.
In 2010, we were asked to take on the new Packard.org project. They currently weren’t utilizing a WordPress platform so this project was built from the ground up. We were able to provide a site designed to highlight important visuals with a rotating lead on the homepage, special widgets to highlight Grantee stories and a database management system for the Grants and Fellowships.
In March 2008 we teamed up with Karen Snyder, VeriSign’s social media manager, to begin developing a social media monitoring and response program.
Our Client Services team immediately outlined a six-step strategy that would be implemented throughout the year.
Step one focused on the conversation discovery process. For this, our team partnered once again with Radian6. We also used a mix of our own homegrown tracking tools and best practices. Step two focused on scraping the best (and most actionable) content from the discovery process and aggregating and sharing this content with the VeriSign team via a custom online reporting site we call Bridge™. Step three focused on establishing internal escalation paths and a lightweight ticketing system to help expedite opportunities and issues quickly to VeriSign’s subject matter experts. Finally, steps four, five and six, focused on coaching and counseling VeriSign’s team on issues response and online participation tactics, as well as tracking, analyzing and reporting the outcomes and results of all their efforts.
The model for VeriSign’s social media monitoring and response program has been increasingly recognized as an emerging best practice and even nominated for a few industry awards. Most recently, the VeriSign program was profiled in a case study produced by our partners at Radian6 (click here for the PDF).

We’ve had the opportunity to work on several peripheral social media projects with VeriSign, including the development of “VeriSign Live,” a new corporate blog authored by Karen Snyder, as well as a custom research project with Nielsen Buzzmetrics and a consumer-generated video campaign for the debut of the .tv domain name.
