Create A Spooky Marketing Campaign For Halloween

As the Connector team is really brave and not frightened by ghosts or zombies, we are the perfect digital agency for you to work with this Halloween.

In our secret laboratory we have a team of highly skilled crazy professors who can help you with concepts, design, videos, games and all your social media requirements.

Last year, we did a spooky ‘Halloween Pumpkin Run’ campaign, where we delivered purple pumpkins filled with sweets to twenty lucky Dublin based agencies. See the photo below. Each and every pumpkin had the connector360 personal touch – hollowed out, painted and filled with treats by our very own minions. A QR code inside led to a special Trick or Treat page with our credentials and a party invitation. What a treat! We think we did a spooktastic job! ;-)

We can create campaigns for you right up until last minute but why not talk to us today about your Halloween campaign! Boo!

You can contact us at or call us on +353 1 906 0006.

Data analytics: the backbone of digital marketing

Data analytics: the backbone of digital marketing

As digital marketers, we are always looking for new and innovative ways to connect with our customer. But the fact is that no matter how creative your campaign is, if there are no data analytics set up behind it, you’re wasting time, money and effort. While you might think that your campaign is performing well, the only real way to know is to set up analytics that measures real numbers and key performance indicators.

in data we trust

When it comes to digital marketing, the primary types of analytics companies set up is on their website, social media channels and email marketing campaigns. The type of data you can collect on each platform varies slightly, for counting how many people engage with your posts on social media channels, to granular detail about what people are doing on your website, to tracking the open rate of your email campaign. Collecting this data drives future decisions about campaigns and gives marketers the information they need to allocate budget and optimise their marketing plans.

Leveraging social media for customer satisfaction and business success

Leveraging social media for customer satisfaction and business success

Whether you’re a social media newbie or a social media maverick, there’s no denying that if you want a successful company, you’re probably going to need to be on social media in some form. With the advent of that ever elusive, ever popular phrase ‘inbound marketing’, the aim of the game is to now draw your customers in from outside, rather than push messages out to them. When it comes to locating these customers, you can be sure that an ever wider demographic of people, AKA your customers, can be found on social media, so if you’re not on social media, you’re probably missing out. Nearly 80% of companies surveyed by The Harvard Review in 2014 are currently using, or are planning on launching, social media soon. So, when are you starting?

Social media has created a two way channel of communication where customers are not afraid to tell companies what they think of them, but equally, companies have a change to delight and connect with their customer. Here at Connector, we’re always talking about how important it is to tune in to your customers, listen to what they’re saying, what they want from you and learn how to engage with them to build relationships. But today, we want to talk about just how you get started on social media, how to keep up with social media and what you can hope to get out of all your efforts.

Social media sites, in the most formal, textbook definition sense, are websites and applications that enable users to create and share content and participate in social networking i.e chatting with friends, making new connections, sharing opinions, insights or gossip, posting photos, videos and so much more. Social media and the proliferation of social networks has truly exploded since the days of MySpace, and the diversity of social networks that currently exist – such as Tumblr for artists, Vine for videographers, Instagram for photographers, Twitter for political activists and news junkies – is huge, and only increasing every day. The emergence of new networks such as Medium, Snapchat and Pinterest means that marketers now have an even larger array of networks which they could possibly be active on.

So that means you should get stuck in there and start a profile on all the current, trending social media platforms that are out there, right?
