Influencer Campaign

We worked with Eddie Merlot's to drive brand engagement by partnering with influencers for a private dinner event. 

This crossift gym wanted to showcase the real transformative power of becoming an active member. Cyclone Social created an emotionally resonant video that showed clients hard at work at becoming their best selves, resulting in several successful social media marketing campaigns for the gym.

You are the "ONE"

This video was used as a long-form content piece that generated over a million views and hundreds of thousands of shares/engagements. It was featured by multiple national accounts and publications, and led to unprecedented brand awareness for OrthoNortheast

You Are #TheONE Image

You Are #TheONE

Orthopedics Northeast (ONE) partnered with Cyclone Social to bring more awareness to their brand. Cyclone Social took a unique approach by marrying two platforms: traditional billboard marketing with social media. 

The campaign played off the logo for Orthopedics Northeast: ONE with a clever phrase "You are #TheONE" (using the logo as the word "one")

The billboards featured a selfie photo. The engagement came into

play when they transofrmed every digital billboard in town into a giant social media jumbotron. Users were asked to share selfies of themselves on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram in order to become the star of the billboard! 

ONE had over 2,800 people submit photos of themselves and those photos rotated through all the billboards constantly! 

After tracking social media metrics associated with this campaign, it was determined that ONE received over 1,000,000 extra impressions per month (for free) purely through social media. 

This campaign won GOLD and Best-In-Show at the American Advertising Federation's award ceremony!

Coppola: "Message in a Bottle"

This was a video campaign for Francis Ford Coppola Winery where we took a deep dive into the story of each bottle of wine.

Cyclone Social takes the time to understand the brand before proposing marketing strategies. They report their progress each month through measurable results and data visuals. To date, they've helped secure 45 times the return on ad spend (ROAS) and generated about $2.6 million.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We are a fine dining steakhouse with 13 locations over the United States. I am the Marketing Coordinator as well as Loyalty Program Manager.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Cyclone Social?

Andrew and his outstanding team manage our many social media pages, place our digital advertising, handle our art creation, as well as photography, and videography. They also produce commercials for us.

What were your goals for this project?

When we hired Cyclone Social our goals were to get better content on our social media pages, increase likes/follows, and drive guest counts.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I did some shopping around both locally and nationally and after meeting with several advertising firms, Andrew and his team stood out. Andrews's passion and knowledge were enticing, he has the drive to be sure each of his clients is well cared for and he has hired a team of like-minded individuals who go the extra mile.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

We began with several discovery meetings with Andrew and his team, he really wanted to get to know us as a company, which we appreciated! After that, they put together an action plan for us and presented it to us. We were on board with everything they wanted to do so we gave them the keys to the kingdom and let them work their strategy.

They report back every month, with an in-person meeting, with the measurable results in an easy to reach report with many graphs and bar charts and can be shared and understood by our entire company. They create marketing pieces as needed in may format to be used in various ways.

They also visit many of our locations across the United States to capture photos and video of the location's decor and staff, each has its own personality. Using the content they capture while in our restaurants they create beautiful ads and commercials.

What was the team composition?

Our Community Manager, Anna, is outstanding! She is highly skilled and knows how to get the job done, which is not an easy task when there are so many moving parts and often last-minute projects that we toss at her. She is smart, kind, and skilled, with a get it done drive.

Megan who handles our creative content is much like Anna in the fact she is skilled and proficient in what she does! We also have a team doing more of the behind the scenes work, our Digital Strategist Greg, Brand Advocate Caitlyn, and Graphic Designer Wes.

Then there are the guys behind the camera Josh, Andrew, and Ben who are great to work with on location during shoots. Even with a team as big as the above, Andrew is always just a phone call or email away and is eager to help.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

We partnered with Cyclone Social to develop a digital advertising strategy focused on increasing guest count and reservations in our restaurants. We saw a 45x Return on ad spend, $2.6m generated, over 21k reservations, and a 10% increase in guest counts.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Working with Andrew and his team is one of the easiest business relationships I have ever had! They are eager to help, highly skilled, organized, and have excellent written and spoken communication.

There were many projects which were last minute and they took them on with grace and skill and always met the deadline! They are proactive and communicate when unexpected things occur.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I have been so impressed by not only the skill level of each employee but Andrew's dedication to his team, to his clients, and to his mission. In everything Cyclone Social does, they hold true to their core value of "Be remarkable or be ignored." Cyclone social is remarkable from the top down!

Are there any areas for improvement?

Andrew has hired the best and therefore they as a company, are the best! While I like to give constructive feedback, I truly can't think of any areas they can improve in right now.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am a manager at an e-commerce company, directly reporting to the CMO, responsible for product and inventory sales.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Cyclone Social?

We were using search campaigns, catalogs, phone/email, and direct mail as our only sales channels - our challenge was to implement a social media campaign to sell merchandise through Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.

What were your goals for this project?

We had 2 goals for the project: 1) increase our online sales by implementing social media ads 2) add social media purchasing as another sales channel.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

The CEO of our company met Cyclone Social through networking, brought them in to meet with our team. We interviewed multiple agencies, but Cyclone Social stood out as the clear choice! The CMO and CEO ended up selecting Cyclone Social and having me and my team work on the project with them.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

Prior to selecting Cyclone Social, they dove into a deep-dive discovery with our team and presented a full plan for rollout. Once we selected them, their team came in and took over all channels to get moving. It was fast, effective, and efficient. Very impressive! We had daily touchbase conversations, weekly update calls, and monthly overarching meetings to review. They always spoke to us in "business" terms and made it easily digestible.

What was the team composition?

We worked directly with a Community Manager, but also had weekly contact with the Director of Marketing and Creative Director at the company. They would coordinate other team members like digital strategists, content creators, influencer specialists, and we even had a lot of direct contact with the CEO.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

We started at zero with social media sales, but within a week of implementation social media became our 3rd best referral source. Within a month it moved to #2. It has maintained high level conversions since! Sales overall at the company increased 13% on average month-over-month following implementation.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

It was VERY easy to work with the Cyclone Social team. They communicate well and really care!

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their setup is different than most other agencies. They have specialists in all areas. So when we had a question about ads, they would loop us in with a Facebook certified ads buyer or even one of their reps at Facebook's headquarters! If we needed something creative, we would get looped in with an art director. We were never talking to a "Jack of all traits" we were able to really get specialist help!

Are there any areas for improvement?

Honestly, everything was done really well. Sales could always be better, but Cyclone Social delivered what we asked!
