Mountain View, CA and Amsterdam, NL (PRWEB) February 22, 2012
SocialTwist, a customer acquisition and retention platform that generates viral referrals for businesses, using the social connections of their customers, and Adversitement, a leading online analytics and optimization provider, today announced a partnership to bring social referral marketing to businesses in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
In the United States, SocialTwist’s platform has been adopted by more than 40 leading brands. Using its customer connections and local expertise, Adversitement will work with brands and agencies to develop and execute similar programs in Europe. As an expert in online analytics, Adversitement will also integrate SocialTwist's reports into its customers' web analytics tools, providing transparency and measurement.
"Businesses have high expectations for social media in 2012 and CMOs are committing even bigger investments,” said Jan Buis, CEO of Adversitement. “What’s needed here is a proven platform that uses social media to drive new customers and generate incremental revenue. Our clients know their customers and we will provide them with all the capabilities they need to integrate social referrals into their programs.”
SocialTwist has integrated social referrals into marketing programs across several industries, including consumer packaged goods, financial services, retail and hospitality. The potential reach of a campaign increases exponentially when consumers are presented with credible offers that motivate them to reach across their personal social connections. Social referral marketing can be built into multiple marketing programs, such as coupons and promotions, membership and loyalty programs, lead generation, brand and event marketing, new product launches, and cause marketing.
“Well-constructed social referral programs have the potential to reach four to six times the initial planned audience, increasing a marketers reach", said Mark Dillon, Chief Revenue Officer of SocialTwist. “What’s often overlooked is the phenomenal quality of the referred parties, who drive higher return for our customers across all acquisition and retention marketing programs. We are delighted to work with Adversitement to bring this marketing innovation to the EMEA market.
SocialTwist programs generate new and repeat customers. When integrated into a marketing campaign, SocialTwist’s platform makes it easy for consumers to share offers and make referrals using Facebook, Twitter, email, blogs and a host of other social connectors. Social referrals can be integrated into almost any marketing program within weeks. Brands and retailers can completely customize a program with branded elements that are hugely effective in driving awareness and recall in addition to new sales.
