There is no single right way to engage. We wanted to develop a system that allowed clients to enter social media at their own pace, yet have the capability to scale up as they're able to prove the success of their efforts.
Hong Kong (PRWEB) July 15, 2009
wwwins Consulting, one of Asia's leading full-service digital marketing agencies and part of global digital network Isobar, has launched a new Social Customer Relationship Marketing (CRM) platform named Astro. Developed independently by wwwins, Astro is an application interface that allows brands to seamlessly manage their social media communications within social spaces with full visibility on tracking and analytics.
wwwins' Astro platform will not only track the results of a social media campaign, showing the true benefits it brings to a brand, but will also help clients to manage their social content. One of the reasons why clients are reluctant to take on a social media presence is because it requires a lot of maintenance; this system intends to streamline the internal process for clients making it easier to manage their messages, feedback, and community growths.
Astro is currently integrated with Facebook and Twitter as these are the only social networks that offer Application Programming Interfaces (API) for third party integration. However, as more social networks open their doors, Astro will be integrated accordingly.
wwwins Consulting collaborated with Swire Properties to launch their first Astro client this week, Starstreet. Starstreet's social presence can be found at http://www.starstreet.com.hk, http://twitter.com/starstreethk, and http://www.facebook.com/starstreet.
"Today social media can be used in so many different ways by brands, whether it is for awareness, promotion, customer service, or buzz-tracking." Says wwwins Consulting Strategic Planning Director, Brandon Cheung, "There is no single right way to engage. We wanted to develop a system that allowed clients to enter social media at their own pace, yet have the capability to scale up as they're able to prove the success of their efforts."
Chris Ryan, Managing Director of wwwins Consulting Hong Kong, says, "Clients that make an early investment into the emerging social media spaces are realizing a first-mover advantage in Asia. Brands have a huge opportunity to converse with their customers in these spaces, but they just need a way to enter the space with confidence. We set out to make it less of a burden on clients' time and resources, as well as make social media an accountable channel like all others in their marketing mix."
