In a recent interview, Chris Le’Cand-Harwood said that “social media is what great marketing has always been: word-of-mouth.”  It’s true! The success of any social media campaign has to do with the “buzz” it generates online. And that’s exactly what Twitter’s Instant Unlock Cards are all about.

As explained in the animation below, Instant Unlock Cards motivate users to Tweet, by offering access to exclusive content in exchange for Tweeting some branded content. A movie trailer, an exclusive Q&A, or anything else in fact. Amazing, right?

The concept is rather simple yet the result is very efficient. Selected advertisers who had early access to Conversational Ads and Instant Unlock Cards, saw an earned media rate of 34% . That’s 34 free impressions per 100 that they paid for! Those are very good numbers, right?
