Singapore | Hootsuite, the most widely used platform for managing social media, introduced on 15 October 2015, Hootsuite Amplify, an employee advocacy solution that helps organisations leverage their most dedicated advocates – their employees – to help promote the company’s brand.
The Hootsuite Amplify mobile app allows employees to easily share their organisation’s content across their social networks, anywhere anytime.
How can you overcome resistance to change? Learn how.
According to a September 2015 Forrester report, “Advocate marketing multiplies the number and reach of voices talking about you — at a much lower cost than traditional print and paid online channels. Beyond quantity, advocate content and interactions are more valuable because buyers see them as authentic validation, not paid promotion.”
According to Gallup Research, when organisations successfully engage their customers and their employees, they see a 240 percent boost in performance-related business outcomes.
Empowering employees to actively participate in sharing relevant company content and successes on their own social networks allows organisations to increase employee satisfaction. At the same time, this mobile-centric solution also means that employees can build or strengthen their own personal brand. According to Gallup Research, when organisations successfully engage their customers and their employees, they see a 240 percent boost in performance-related business outcomes.
“Employees want to actively contribute to an organisation’s success,” says Ryan Holmes, CEO of Hootsuite. “Amplify makes it easy for employees to share approved content with their own social networks, empowering them to be advocates who are engaged and connected with their company.”
Hootsuite Amplify makes it simple for organisations to extend the reach of their social media campaigns. Organisations will be able to:
1.boost awareness of brand, product and social responsibility campaigns;
2.increase employee engagement, happiness, and retention; and
3.measure and optimise team participation, content performance and social reach.
