GCL congratulates Offerpop Launches Facebook Poll App for Brands

Like to Vote Feature Takes Advantage of Facebooks New Promotion Guidelines

Online PR News – 11-October-2013 – New York – New York, NY, October 10, 2013 - Offerpop, the most widely used social marketing platform, today announced the release of its Poll app, the latest in Offerpop's suite of social marketing campaign apps. Poll allows marketers to launch mobile-ready Poll campaigns on Facebook that engage consumers, amplify word-of-mouth, and capture rich data about their fans to inform their cross-channel marketing campaigns.

Fans can participate in Polls by liking their selection – a feature that takes advantage of Facebooks recent change to their promotion guidelines. When Facebook users Like their selections, they create news feed stories in their timelines and their friends news feeds, with a link back to the campaign, driving campaign virality. Brands can promote Polls anywhere – website, digital ads, in stores, and TV – extending the reach of traditional advertising programs.

The Poll app is part of Offerpops mission to leverage Facebooks newest guidelines and features, enabling brands to run results-driven social campaigns, said Prakash Mishra, CTO and co-founder of Offerpop. The Poll app helps marketers improve the reach of their campaigns by creating viral stories, resulting in bigger social and email audiences.

Marketers can set up a Poll in minutes using Offerpops one-page campaign builder. They can enable options like fan-gating with a single click, so that participants must like the page to vote. Brands can also add custom forms to capture valuable data about campaign participants after they make their selections, like email addresses and opt-ins for future communications. Fans can also opt to comment after theyve made their selections, driving even more participation.

"Polling our customers via Offerpop's platform helps grow word of mouth, build engagement, and impact downstream metrics," said Erica Young, Ecommerce Marketing Manager at Ashley Stewart. "We're excited about the ability of like-based voting to drive campaign virality."

As soon as brands publish a campaign, Poll launches a real-time report and begins tracking program metrics such as unique visitors and fan growth. Users can export user data into Excel with just one click. Plus, polling fan bases helps brands crowdsource marketing and product decisions and get valuable user data about their audiences opinions and interests.
