In early 2020, Long Tail was tapped to work on the FEED THE STREETZ TOUR: "Living Legendz" edition. The client? We Are Live Entertainment, a staple in the concert promotion business with over 50 years experience. 

Though they had succeeded with radio and traditional media buys, we worked with W.A.L.E. to introduce their first ever paid social campaign. We produced a series of highly engaging videos and distributed them to them to local fans of the performing artists. We used a variety of creative from :07 second looping videos to long-form trailers and then retargeted engaged viewers and site visitors with the ads.

All of this lead to a tremendously succesfull campaign, delivering over $250K in ticket sales and a 22X return on the ad spend!

"Don and the team at Long Tail did a phenomenal job communicating their plan, and an even better job executing on it. We were very pleased with their services, and will continue to work with them."

In 2019, Long Tail's leadership team worked with Blavity Inc's Travel Noire brand to provide a wholistic growth strategy. Our main KPI?

EMAILS!

 

We introduced the idea of socially supported, high-value giveaways. The giveaways resulted in emails and engagement for TN, as well as impressions for brand partners. We leveraged our owned platforms to promote the contests, and bolstered the campaigns with additional UGC content, as well as social ads. This approach led to a 368% increase in weekly newsletter subscribers and a scalable model for email acquisitions. In addition, the model created opportunities for branded content, organic social series, and social engagement. 

We also managed social ad buying for article traffic. With adequate targeting, we were able to achieve a $0.01 cost per click on Facebook ads, accounting for an increase of 30% in weekly website traffic. 

Lastly, we established a content sharing program with major urban and travel media outlets. Our social shares with Travel and Leisure, and iOne digital led to an 18% increase in weekly traffic for the brand.
