Taurus injects fresh new ideas with social strategy & community management

In a bid to continuously engage and capture both distributors (B2B) and consumers (B2C) who are avid fans of graphic solutions, Avery Dennison have for years leveraged the power of Facebook.

While the local Avery Dennison team was able to successfully capture this audience and engage with them, the challenge they faced was in growing the Facebook audience. So they were looking for a comprehensive strategy to weave in fresh new ideas outside of the regular scheduled post of imagery and video content.

Avery Dennison engaged TaurusSocial© for a full spectrum social media strategy, content management and community management for the ANZ Facebook page – Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions Australia & New Zealand. This includes producing a monthly content calendar, scheduling posts, managing advertising spend, ongoing monitoring and responding to all community messages and enquiries.

TaurusSocial© drives successful user generated content

Avery Dennison’s Facebook followers are highly active and often engage with the content. In a bid to continue this momentum, while at the same time attract new followers to the page, Taurus created a series of creative campaigns to help build the brand and garner more followers.

One of the most successful and iconic campaign till this day was Fan Friday. Fan Friday is a user-generated content campaign initiated by Taurus and Avery Dennison to rally followers to submit their work using Avery Dennison’s products. The majority of submission come from all over Australia and New Zealand, most often from key target audiences such as automotive garages, signage shops, installers, and converters.

The chosen submissions will then be shared to the page each Friday to showcase the creativity from customers and quality of Avery Dennison products. Shops and creatives are tagged, and Avery Dennison products highlighted.

Month on month, Fan Friday comes up top across all organic posts, attracting new and like-minded followers who are avid graphic solutions fans. This user-generated campaign also allows Avery Dennison to build lasting relationships online with their base of automotive garages, signage shops, installers, and converters.
