Measurable Results Social media has become a growing key business driver for Adobe. In 2012, social media drove about half a billion visitors to Adobe.com. This is twice as many visits compared to 2011, and represents 13% of all visits to the website. Additionally, social visitors contributed to online revenue – up 87% year over year. Contributing to the demand generation efforts were two major campaign initiatives that launched in 2012. ‘Create Now’ and ‘Metrics Not Myths’ were developed to align with Adobe’s digital media and digital marketing businesses, respectively. • Create Now, which launched in April 2012 in conjunction with the announcement of a significant new offer, Adobe Creative Cloud, generated 10-fold social media ROI within two months. • Metrics Not Myths, which launched in October 2012, represents “The Ultimate Case Study," as Adobe regularly publishes results from the campaign determined using Adobe’s digital marketing solutions Provide any additional links or information here: Create Now • Create Now Campaign Execution Details: http://adobe.ly/WoctON • Creative Cloud Social Success Story: http://adobe.ly/V3uiM4 Metrics Not Myths • The Ultimate Case Study: http://adobe.ly/PNGgh7
