With Socialbakers social media marketing and customer engagement platform, Vi?edos La Redonda can constantly monitor their most effective content pieces to give their audience new and better experiences across the entire customer journey. A journey that starts with great content.
Samanta Martínez, Community Manager at Vi?edos La Redonda shares her perspective: “Content is king. Using Socialbakers, we can know what people want to see and their topics of interest. This helps us position ourselves and give our audience better content. Our consumer strategy is not just about selling, but truly being a part our audience’s lives every day. We’re a fun wine brand with many things to share as part of the wine experience.”
Beyond increasing social engagement, Vi?edos La Redonda has been able to generate significant business results from activations across social. From pre-purchase to customer care, the combination of social media analytics and listening underpin their biggest decisions about how to truly personalize the brand experience.
The company has built personalization into the fabric of their operations. Ana Laura Medina, Interaction Coordinator, shared her view on why listening to audiences is just how business should be done: “Interaction with clients in a personalized way generates an effective bond with the brand. Many customers share how happy they are to have each comment answered. Above all, immediate, relevant attention encourages frequent interaction. We then become part of their conversations about our services, and even about their personal lives and experiences.”
Mauricio González, CTO at Vi?edos La Redonda shares how they see the relationship between these key interactions and business results. “Knowing how to listen to our audience helps us all. Our company and our clients. With Socialbakers, we’re able to analyze the sentiment of our customers and use that insight to create new products and packages closer to what they want,” he said.
This data-first approach led to the brand to register the DíA NACIONAL DEL VINO? brand for marketing purposes, running the National Wine Month campaign the third week of October 2020. They created and promoted collectable festive labels, which was very well received by customers, as shown below.
The recognition of their hard work is an important social media milestone; looking beyond performance metrics, the business impact is also crucial to highlight. In Q4, the company ran a two-week campaign to increase website visits and boost customer retention. “It’s very important for us to maintain a close relationship with our best customers. In this campaign, we leveraged the sentiment insights we had already identified in our audience to achieve +32.87% customer retention,” shared González.
As Vi?edos La Redonda plans for the future, Socialbakers continues to be a key partner to help the brand achieve their goals.
