In January 2004, we teamed up with Yahoo! to begin developing its first “official” corporate social media marketing program. Program Snapshot The objective for the program was to concentrate on ways the company could engage industry influencers, particularly bloggers, to help increase awareness and ultimately, endorsement for the various products and services it was bringing […]
In late 2006, FORTUNE 1000 data storage firm NetApp told us that it was about to embark on the single largest marketing endeavor in its 15-year history: a new brand identity.

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).
