5 Whitelisting Strategies

πŸ‘€ Sponsor this spot to share your product or service with our community.

Jake Abrams shared these 5 whitelisting strategies with Buyology:

  1. Post Boosting: Boost a post in which an influencer organically mentions and tags your brand. This tactic offers instant social proof, but limits your control over messaging.
  2. Traditional Influencer Whitelisting: Run ads directly through an influencer’s own social platforms. This enables you to control content, targeting, and iterations, but you’ll need to align with the influencer’s brand.
  3. Branded Content Site Whitelisting: Run ads through a publisher’s social platforms and website for ease of tracking. Use sparingly or risk losing credibility.
  4. True Publisher Whitelisting: Drive ads to sponsored content on a genuine publisher’s website. This lends credibility and authenticity to your brand.
  5. Brand-Created Publisher Whitelisting:Β Develop a publisher persona with social profiles and a website, creating the perception of third-party endorsement. This is time-intensive but enables full creative freedom.

Arby's Ving Campaign

What Did You Say About Arby’s?

Depending on who you ask, Arby’s ranks on the lower end of fast food joints.

Not content to be the pork-butt of the joke, the brand is breaking the fourth wall in a new campaign. The iconic voice of Arby’s, Ving Rhames, shows his face for the first time, stepping out of the television to force feed sandwiches to some detractors.

Time will tell if it resonates, but it’s certainly consistent with the brand’s hypermasculine persona.
