About this entry

Rarely will you find a social agency that doesn’t claim they do the same thing, but better – talk. “We spark the conversations that your fans want to like, comment on and share." At GLOW, we use a less-common technique, a lost art if you will - we listen. We make human deductions and take action based not on what an automated program tells us to do, but what your audience wants us to do. In a world filled with automated robotic listening tools, we value the human element as critical to effectively connect with other humans. Summer 2012 was our best summer yet, success driven by tuned-in creative that intersects with fan interests. Glow provides big thinking, backed by superior creative and nimble execution to help clients achieve their goals. This is how we’ve built sustainable social engagement for top cable and entertainment brands, music artists and recently a national sub sandwich franchise with over 700 locations. Top brands trust GLOW to build and engage fans. The way we’ve helped clients, and had our best summer ever, shows our unique brand of creativity, innovation and effectiveness.

But the Jersey shore subs we loved were a too-well kept secret and we quickly took action to spread the love (and grab new fans). • People Talking About This +388% • Average weekly reach +423% • 60,000+ "stories" during the summer months (2x prior avg) Through our work, and collaboration, GLOW built a digital approach now embraced as the Jersey Mike’s voice. Thanks to this, Jersey Mike's is tracking toward a record amount for their annual "Month of Giving" in March 2013
