Next Generation Advertising Technology For A New Generation Of Consumers
48Bricks is Next Generation Advertising Technology For A New Generation Of Consumers.
Our game-changing approach to digital marketing taps into the power of social networking and uses it to create meaningful, monetized interactions between our client companies and their target audiences.
At 48Bricks, we don’t just create fans:
WE CREATE CONSUMERS.
Whether you want to fill empty seats, push product, market an app or fundraise for a cause, 48Bricks will help you spread the word like wildfire.
In our digitally plugged-in world, there are hundreds of anonymous ads and pages demanding our attention and our “likes” at any given time. The more crowded the digital landscape becomes, the more we tune everything out — even the things we’re interested in hearing about.
This creates a serious problem for businesses, especially the ones that rely on direct audience engagement and immediate action to drive their goals:
There are 2 challenges facing these companies today:
How do you rise above all the digital noise and connect with the audiences that you need in order to achieve your goals?
Once you have their attention, how do you motivate them to engage with your brand in a meaningful way?
Even in the age of social media and sharing, there is no marketing tool more powerful than a personal recommendation.
That holds especially true for members of the Millennial generation, who are more easily influenced by their social networks than by traditional advertising methods. 48Bricks uses “tastemakers” in consumers’ social networks to drive spending behavior.48Bricks identifies “tastemakers” in consumers’ social networks and motivates them to become “brand evangelists” that fuel your campaign. These top fans echo your message throughout the digital world, and help get your campaign to the all-important “viral” status.
Our mobile, highly gamified, viral word-of-mouth engine engages, amplifies and monetizes leads, while generating an ever-growing database of brand evangelists that clients can then retarget for future campaigns.
48Bricks’ game changing proprietary ad-technology is built on principles of gamification to engage users and drive their interaction with your brand. Here’s a breakdown of how the process works:
At 48Bricks, we don’t wait for fans to find us: we find them! Using game mechanics and analytics, we developed an innovative “reverse search” method that forms the foundation of how we fuel your campaign.
It’s not enough to simply gather new leads: you have to put them in action. 48Bricks motivates leads to keep spreading the word and get your message going viral. Our “Smart Links” multiply the effectiveness of every click while gathering useful consumer data at the same time.
A bunch of “likes” on your Facebook page is great, but it doesn’t get you the results you’re looking for. Closing leads is where 48Bricks excels. Our platform creates an ever-growing flow of fans, which we convert using our “dynamic monetization engine.”
Ads on marquee social networking and internet platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Google are all geared toward getting brands as many views as possible, but the reality is that those views rarely lead to meaningful customer interaction. In fact, they barely get clicked on at all:
Click-Through Rates (CTR)
At 48Bricks, we believe it’s the quality of the leads, not the quantity that converts to sales. That’s why we focus on key influencers in personal social networks, helping our clients connect with their audience on their level and retarget them on demand.
The 48Bricks product is fully developed and already starting to make a measurable difference in marketing and conversion for our clients.
We’ve completed multiple client projects to date, with currently 12 active proposals pending contract.
