Offerpop Releases Hashtag Gallery, Empowering Marketers to Manage User-Generated Content at Scale

Offerpop

NEW YORK, New York (Nov. 6, 2013) —Offerpop, a leading social marketing software company, has released Hashtag Gallery, a solution that allows brands to unite social media with traditional marketing channels, compile and store user-generated content, and showcase hashtag campaign content in a single location.

Hashtag Gallery capitalizes on an exploding trend: brands everywhere are including hashtags in their TV commercials, print and digital ads, and other marketing programs.

With Hashtag Gallery, brands collect, manage and showcase user-generated content related to these hashtags in a seamless branded display, on websites, auto-generated landing pages, or Facebook tabs. Through these campaigns brands encourage passionate consumers to share photos, videos, and posts. These engaged communities span multiple mediums and generate an expansive library of valuable user-generated content that can be repurposed for marketing and merchandizing programs.

“The convergence of social and mobile is fundamentally changing how consumers interact with their favorite brands, enabling them to share experiences and user-generated content,” said Prakash Mishra, co-founder and Chief Technology Officer for Offerpop. “Hashtag Gallery gives brands ways to turn content into relevant, real-time consumer engagement, amplifying the reach of traditional marketing programs.”

Marketers have struggled to organize, respond to and reuse consumer posts that include their branded hashtags. Hashtag Gallery automates this process, allowing time-strapped social marketers to track and follow up with responses in real time. Through auto-responding to entries with custom messages and “claim your entry” links, marketers can easily get permission to repurpose user-generated content. They can also incentivize and reward consumers for participating, offering daily, weekly, or monthly prizes.

Marketers can create and launch their Hashtag Gallery campaigns in minutes, with no custom development required. With Hashtag Gallery’s powerful back-end moderation capabilities, marketers can choose to approve entries before publication. And they can view program metrics like unique visitors and participation in real time, allowing for campaign optimization.

Offerpop’s launch of Hashtag Gallery includes an early access package that rewards companies and marketers that launch a Hashtag Gallery campaign in November by giving them hands-on help from a team of Offerpop’s social media strategists, who work with brands like Audi, American Express and NBC Universal.

LyricStatus: Because Expression through Lyrics Makes Facebook Easier

LyricStatus

For some, Facebook is easy. As a social media society, we’ve abandoned our privacy, our ability to speak in complete sentence or use complete words, and our tendency towards any form of introversion. We want to encapsulate our moments, days, and lives into quick status updates that are intended to inform others of who we are and why we do what we do.

Talking Social Media… In Person #DMSC #NADA2011

Greetings awesome readers. I will be heading up to San Francisco this week to give the Social Media keynote at the 2011 Digital Marketing Strategies Conference as well as attending NADA 2011. Unfortunately, I will not be posting as often as I would like, but I’m hopeful that some of the other writers will pick up the slack and make it interesting.

Unfortunately, this also means no Social Blade Show this Thursday (but we’ll be back next week!).

Please continue to send you “5-Minutes with Your Startup” requests and I’ll be caught up with them shortly after getting back.

Please “tweet it up” so everyone knows that I’ll be gone. Thanks!

5-Minutes with Your Startup: AnybodyOutThere.com

It’s a question that people often ask when they’re alone, bored, concerned, or simply wanting to talk to someone for random reasons. “Anybody out there?”

This startup called AnybodyOutThere tries to help people who are asking the question by putting them in Instant Messaging conversations with people who may share their interests or concerns at the moment. With promised integration into several IM platforms, there is a certain sense of controlled chaos that surrounds the service.
