What Every Social Media Marketer Should Know About the Syncapse Platform

The Syncapse Platform is an enterprise Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) application designed to help marketers create a global, cross platform social media presence with reduced complexity and risk.

The application currently operates on Facebook, Twitter, MovableType.org, WordPress and YouTube, staying on top of social media developments with a team that conducts biweekly feature updates to the tool.

Ways the product benefits social media campaigns

Designed for non-technical users, the Syncapse Platform helps marketers build, manage and measure social media marketing campaigns from a single dashboard. The application has particular utility for global marketers working with multiple internal stakeholders (such as subsidiaries around the globe) and external stakeholders like creative, media or public relations agencies.

Coolest feature

Support of Facebook’s geo-targeted publishing feature. Marketers can send relevant information to fans from a particular country, state, city or region, and/or to fans that speak a particular language. This feature is targeted to retail chains with one Facebook Page serving multiple storefronts or other brands communicating with fans in several official languages.

Feature rundown

Rich Media Publishing – Publish several types of content such as images, video, text and flash to all owned social media sites with one click.

Customized Workflow – Publish the correct content to the correct location at the right time. Allocate relevant permissions to members of your team responsible for creating content, those who edit the content and those who approve the content before it gets published.

Content Library – Organize and maintain a library of pre-approved content that can be customized by region/audience and deployed to local or regional social media sites. Designed to save resources by avoiding team members duplicating work.

Influencer Identification and Sentiment Analysis – Identify members of your audience most likely to purchase or influence others. Gain valuable insights on consumer sentiment around products and brands. This helps brands identify and participate in the most relevant conversations to build brand loyalty.

Measurement – In addition to the usual metrics (number of fans, number of posts, number of engagements or likes, etc.), campaign performance can be measured using parameters such as Earned Reach, Earned Engagement, Earned Media Value and Brand Favorability.
