Now, I did write a monster post back in April where I gave you an in-depth analysis of the framework with examples. Today, I’m giving you a snapshot of the framework along with an example for each.
Why: “We didn’t know how big it was going to be. From a cultural standpoint we obviously hoped that it would take off but we were blown away by how fast it happened and the extent of it. More importantly, it drove real results for small businesses across the country that day,” says Mark Taylor in this D&AD case study.
Why: “The Draw Shop works with everyone from independent authors to huge corporations like Google, collaborating with them each step of the way to create the perfect video,” writes Kristen Dunleavy for Business 2 Community.
Why: “While Fisher’s team was somewhat hesitant initially to add an Inbound strategy and tactics to their marketing, today they’re some of the most enthusiastic supporters and promoters of the approach,” as you can read in this Weidert Group case study.
Why: “Best Buy shows that it values its customers on its Twitter accounts, @BestBuy and @twelpforce, which are constantly updated with answers to customers’ questions, replies to their concerns, and discounts for its products,” writes Kylie Jane Wakefield in this still relevant case study from Contently.
Why: “At the end of the day, people supporting your nonprofit want to know who is behind the organization, who else supports it. So the more we can integrate online and offline outreach, the more it works,” I told Ifdy Perez, when she profiled the now-classic Blue Key campaign.
Why: “One of the biggest challenge is that LinkedIn users are disengaged. The idea is to get them to share more than just links, and to start real engaging conversations with each other.” The Link Humans case study.
Why: “The big lesson here, of course, is that when you don’t have a benchmark, it’s really tough to set measurable objectives. And it takes time to look at the data you have, even if it’s limited, to figure those out. So start doing this as soon as you can,” (case study from the WUL vault).
