How Social Media Marketing works with Piranha


Comprehensive audit of any current Social Media presence. Which networks they are currently active on and how well they are performing, which are currently bringing the most value and how do the audience profiles compare to competitors’ or similarly focused businesses? It Is likely this will be a very quick exercise as Clay Oven have limited Social Medi Exposure, however listings are available on LinkedIn and referenced on Facebook so the research exercise will need to be completed to ensure no opportunities or pit falls are missed

Identify 3 main competitors for research and benchmarking. Research and competitor analysis of 3 main competitors with audit of activity frequency and nature of content. This will help us establish the level of competition and also help establish our strategy, the content and frequency of posts

Initial research indicates a few independent manufactures on Facebook such as Iqbal Naan   


Benchmark all activity and results alongside that of the chosen competitors. This will provide a starting point to the campaign and enable us to show improvements to online presence and the success when measured against our chosen benchmarked competitors

 Clarify Target Audiences  

Identification of ideal customer groups, geographical location, age, gender, interests, careers and network locations (most active networks, groups joined and associated with). It is easy to think the consumer of the product is our social media target audience, but we will have many different audiences with different content requirements. The biggest distinguishing factors will b that of consumers verses trade, but also different trade segments such as convenience retailers and large supermarkets This list Is likely to include the following but will require clarification during our initial discussions

• Senior stakeholders at Clay Oven Bakery

• Existing Retail Customers

• Supermarkets

• Retail groups/buying groups

• Food wholesalers

• Independent retailers

• Pub chains

• Consumers (various groups)

• Vegan Market

Regular meetings

As part of the social media plan, regularly meetings are scheduled to review previous work and plan the months’ work ahead. In a digital world, it’s easy to relay on conference calls, worksheets, e-mails etc. but the reality is, nothing works better than face to face strategic meetings in improving a campaigns performance.
