 Analysis

While thinking about this project I believed the best course of action was to spend the 5 dollars all in one day. My thinking was I wanted a spike in promotion all in one day to reach a big audience and gain huge exposure with my higher bidding budget. Then I used other media channels to promote my content throughout the entire week. This idea helped me reach most of my marketing objectives in this campaign getting 2 retweets, 2 likes, 378 organic impressions and 1,559 promoted impressions with an engagement rate of around 5%. Throughout the day I toggled with each of the settings to change my target audience based on age, geography, device, accounts, and etc. to most effectively promote my ad to gain a more effective engagement. Then each additional day I used other platforms like GroupMe, Reddit, Facebook, Messenger, Blogs, and Instagram to target my audience in other media spaces. This allowed me to continue to grow as the week went on and expand my reach. I think the most effective free media I used was Reddit which allowed me to drop my link into communities I believed would be interested in my meme. During this day I noticed a bigger jump in views compared to the other free media I implemented during the challenge. I also direct messaged many memes accounts in the same category as my meme to see if I could get an support from other established meme pages with my content. Even though I wasn’t able to get a response from these meme pages I believe they at the very least viewed it themselves which helped me. Overall with a now better understanding of how each of these media spaces works I believe if I did this challenge again I could hit ~5000 views with an increased focus on Blog and Reddit communities. However, I feel that the topic of your content plays a strong role in how you approach this challenge and where to focus your channeling.
