Wow!Posted: November 17, 2011
A social media guru might disabuse me of this notion, but for a campaign with a $0.00 budget and a planned run of only a few days, I feel like this has gotten off to a great jump start.
Facebook was the leader by a long shot on day 1, with over 880 impressions and 199 positive responders creating a 23% response rate. Taking into account that many of the responders will be from the 233 friends that had this pop up in their feed, I’m very happy to see that there were 55 people who responded that were not existing connections.
Google+ had a significantly lower response rate (in the 50’s), but the Pages feature in Google has only been around for 10 days, and many people have not even created Google+ accounts.
LinkedIn did not get a great response – I may not be using it to it’s full potential, since I did not send a ton of direct invitations through it and relied on visibility from group posts. Lesson learned.
I have a number of friends and family that live overseas – I’ll be very curious to see what happens overnight.
