Why does this entry deserve to win?

While social media may be one of the various methods of advertising for most brands and businesses, when it's your only method of advertising, it becomes the lifeline of the business.

Additionally, when the entire marketing department consists of one Director of Social Media that is in charge of community management, content creation, media buying, and everything in between -- the pressure is on to produce.

We started the year with two locations, and we ended eight. So we needed to split the ad budget evenly across all stores, boost our current posts for engagement, and target potential franchise partners -- while still maintaining our different Facebook and Instagram ad campaigns.

Results

The budget for the year was $70,000, we spent a total of $68,352.21. We had to make sure we were reaching our current customers, while making sure we're also reaching out to potential customers.

Because of sales-oriented focus to being people in through the door, our strategy led us to utilize different tactics and advertising objectives. While we were analyzing the data, we separated the campaigns according to its objective and calculated the numbers accordingly.
