Our Paid Social Methodology
Our paid social methodology goes to the heart of old-school advertising, putting a brilliant creative campaign in front of the right audience. It is as such in two parts.
The first is getting great creative. This should flow down from your wider brand campaigns, but you don’t want to be running TV ads on social channels. We help you adapt your wider marketing collateral to create social-first creative.
We can also work with you to adapt either UGC (user-generated content) or better Influencer generated content for paid social ads. Allowing for integrated influencer and paid media campaigns, massively amplifying the results of both.
The second is finding the right audience. To do this well you need great first-party data. To build high value audiences you need to have your customer lists segmented so that they can be imported into platforms to allow them to find users who are most similar to your highest-value customers.
Once you’ve created these audiences, the platforms algorithm look to show your ads more to users who’re ready to buy at that time, using data conversions. So you also need to have a best-in-class measurement framework in place to feed the channels a clear picture of what impact it’s having on your business.

At DemandMore we’re partnered with several social platforms including Meta and Pinterest to help support our client’s growth.
There are several key benefits to our clients from our platform partnerships:

Our Onboarding and Immersion
We know understanding your business and setting clear expectations of how we work is key to a great agency-client partnership. That’s why we take onboarding very seriously.
Here is how our onboarding process typically works:
We start with detailed onboarding documentation, to make sure that we catch all of the key KPIs, competitors and requirements all in one place for the team to reference.
If we’ve not done an audit as part of the pitch process, or there has been some time between our audit and getting started, then we will do one as part of the onboarding to create our roadmap of changes to be implemented.
As part of the onboarding process we like to do an immersion session in person. This is where we get together and speak to people both in the marketing team as well as the wider company to ensure that we have a holistic understanding of your business.
Once we’re happy we have a clear understanding of the business and what needs to be done we will create a detailed Gantt chart that we will review together, before getting sign-off. After executing the roadmap of the changes we will then smoothly transition into BAU activity.
Our Commercial Models
When it comes to Paid social services, Paid social agencies tend to price on either a day rate or a percentage of spend model. Although we have clients on almost every commercial model, the vast majority of our clients work on a day rate.
We think the model is fair for clients, because in most cases an increase in spend doesn’t necessarily mean an increase in management time. In general, the only exception is when seasonal spend jumps are significant or a lot of new activity is commenced.
It’s also very transparent. We benchmark our rates annually a benchmarking report that an independent accountant firm put together each year, looking at agency day rates for digital and creative businesses.
Paid social agencies will manage ads across a wide range of platforms including Meta (Facebook and Instagram), X (formerly Twitter), Linkedin, Snap and Tiktok.
There are a number of ways that your paid social agency can target your ads. They include lookalike audiences who are audiences of people who are most similar to your current customers or website visitors. Interest targeting allows you to segment users by what pages they’ve liked and how they have interacted with content. As well as broad audiences which allow you to target very wide audiences on the platforms.
The Wow Company are an independent accountancy firm that publishes a benchmark report each year looking at the price of digital agency services. They publish the average hourly rates and day rates of paid social agencies which we benchmark our pricing to to ensure that our clients get value for money.

At the beginning of any relationship with a paid social agency, it’s key as part of the onboarding process that you agree on the KPIs that you are going to measure the success of the campaign by. This will vary depending on your objectives and the type of activity being run. Examples could be ROAS or CPA for conversion-focused campaigns or Impressions and reach for campaigns targeting brand recall and awareness.
Yes, most paid social agencies will also offer organic social media management, to help improve engagement on your pages.
