Build the right influencer relationships for your brand and your campaign. FieldFacts is Racepoint’s approach to identifying influencers in your category and how best to connect with them.
- Stakeholder Identification: FieldFacts enables us to see who is influencing that which matters most to our client’s goals – discussions of the future of a particular technology, the virtues of a certain product, or conversations around an issue or policy direction. With the methodology we follow, we can identify these individuals and their organizations. We can understand each individual’s reach and define where and how they operate with greatest influence. We can also understand how each of these individuals is connected to the others and how they share information.
- Consumption Analysis: FieldFacts’ technology allows us to dive down into this influencer set. In this phase, we begin to build our strategy by looking at consumption behaviors among this group and at the individual level. How are they consuming information? Are there common behaviors or major events we can use to engage them or do we need a variety of methods to get to the highest value influencers? Are they using social channels? Are they quoting particular journalists, analysts or experts most frequently? What consumption patterns can we take from this and use to inform our work? What events do they attend?
- Expression: The depth of understanding of the influencers provides everything we need to guide content expression for our client. We know the content we need to develop; we can design the ideal publishing and engagement cadence, focusing on working authentically with the influencers we need to reach at each stage of our strategy (leveraging connection points).
- Analysis: With FieldFacts, we can track our progress with building our client’s influencer relationships. We are careful during the analysis phase to assess progress and make course corrections where necessary. This no-nonsense view helps us understand whether our expression tactics are on target, allows us to understand movements in the market and in key discussion areas that affect our success and make the adjustments we need to ensure goal attainment.
What We Do
With the advent of social media, there is increasingly little differentiation between paid, earned, owned and social content. They see different types of content as being interchangeable.
Recognizing this trend, we have built a model that allows us to create content which stands out from the crowd delivered to the right audience at the right time through the channel that creates greatest action. The outcome is campaigns that not only wow but deliver breakthrough results.
Racepoint Global recognized this trend and responded decisively to this market dynamic by offering an integrated model that can effectively support the communications need of some of the biggest companies in the world.
