Challenges

Certiport struggled to leverage existing content across social media in order to improve lead generation, brand awareness, and engagement. Its previous social media management platform, Hootsuite, was slow to augment social media activities, which meant less content was being pushed out.

Lacking in-depth analytics, Hootsuite also focused on vanity metrics such as likes and shares, preventing Certiport from tying social media activities to business outcomes. In order to get more organized about its social media marketing, Certiport looked for a solution that provided greater results.

Solutions

For Certiport, organic social media is more than a mere content distribution tool. Their strategy it specifically designed to collect leads and push them directly to the sales department or engage with them using a tailored content marketing program. But after noticing a huge gap between their social media efforts and broader marketing goals, they turned to Oktopost for its primary focus on lead generation across content management, metrics, and platform integrations.
