Curious about we how created: The Future Looks Pink In Coca-Cola’s Social Media Strategy Forecast? In this post, we SHOW and TELL ALL! In full transparency, here’s a behind-the-scenes look at how we’re able to predict Coca-Cola’s future success on social AND create an entire content calendar complete with all the post visuals, captions, and videos based on a single trending campaign. Prepare to have your mind blown.
The Preemptive Power of Trend-Spotting in Iconic Brands
What you’re about to see is the culmination of careful analysis and understanding of Coca-Cola’s most popular performing posts, their key success metrics, and the brand’s overall direction in 2023.
We dive deep into the data, reviewing likes, comments, and engagement indicators across Coca-Cola’s Instagram.
Following Your Audience’s Compass to Reach a Treasure Trove of Repeatable Trends
Analyzing and interpreting 6-months of Instagram content is a painstaking task.
Every post needs to be sifted through and sorted into key metrics that are tracked, and ordered from most popular to least engaged. Post links need to be assigned to each post for quick access back to the post – so that when the best posts are identified, those posts can be revisited and studied for reasons WHY they performed well. Those notes need to be made on the best posts and stored in a place that links them to the post itself. If it’s not linked together it’s just random notes without association to their visual descriptions…
This is a full team project traditionally done by a group of researchers, data analysts, the social media manager, the brand manager, and creative strategists with a design team to collate the visuals into a virtual drawing room all so that data-informed decisions can be made to build on engagement, audience growth (and ultimately sales from social media).
But what if instead of taking weeks to turn analysis into an action plan, it took days? Weeks saved in time.
What if instead of days it took hours? Thousands of dollars saved.
What if instead of hours it took minutes? An entire team’s salary saved.
What if instead of minutes it took seconds? Okay, now it’s just mad fantasy, right? Wrong.
It’s the lightning power of Creatrix.
But Wait, There’s MORE 🤯
Once all the posts have been sorted and ordered and interpreted into notes, we have a basis of the Creative Strategy. Then the Creative Strategy gets broken into Marketing Campaigns which are put into a Content Calendar. The Content Calendar is filled with post captions, videos and visuals.
This is another team task. Now the Creative Strategists work with Creative Directors, Copy Writers, and Creative Teams.
There’s no way software could do the work of two full teams right? Analysis and Creativity? Science and Art? That’s impossible…
Software As A Superhero
Creatrix is like a creative genius and the world’s best data scientist had a baby. And that baby came out fluent in social media. They somehow take the most complicated analysis, interpret it visually and translate it so that even 1-year-olds clearly see: the posts are winning on social media.
These superpower predictive capabilities are made possible because of Creatrix Forecasting Software – your modern-day crystal ball for social media success predictions.
Turning Complex Analysis into an Obvious Action Plan
When we audited Coke’s Instagram it’s obvious that certain themes and motifs resonated more with Coke’s audience, particularly content with a vibrant, playful, daring attitude that was surprisingly but undeniably: Pink … but because seeing is believing take a look for yourself.
Let’s start at the beginning.
