Consider the Honeybee When Attracting Your Social Customers
The Content Marketing Agency
Beehaus helps brands to place customers and their networks of influence at the center of marketing and advertising by leveraging their communities, conversations, and social identities.
Content Marketing is a strategy that places social customers and human experiences at the center of marketing by leveraging customer communities, conversations, and identity.
Communities are made up of customer’s social relationships (Social Graphs) and shared interests (Interest Graphs). Beehaus helps brands use this data to better target and serve customers.
Conversations refer to the interactions your customers have within their communities. Listening surfaces customer activities. Sharing provides feedback and engagement. Brand must take part in this dialogue.
Identity refers to a customers sense of self and how they are viewed by their communities. Beehaus helps brands understand how they are relevant to their customer’s social profiles.
We are obsessed with helping brands design content marketing programs that are tailored to meet the needs and expectation of their social customers.
Brands must make their customer’s communities, conversations and identity central to their business.
The onset of platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+ has shifted the control of media to customers and has set new expectations for brands to create experiences … not just products. Content Marketing is a strategy that places customers and their networks of influence at the center of marketing and advertising.
Helping brands engage with their social customers and create extraordinary experiences.
Understanding how to engage social customers has been a work in process. Our mission at beehaus is to help brands design content marketing programs that are socially informed, contextually relevant, and easily shared.

Optimize Your Customer’s Decision Journey & Engage Their Influence Loop.
The funnel is dead! The Customer Decision Journey and the Influence Loop is the new model for customer engagement.
Today, brands must make the Customer Decision Journey central to their business. That assertion is based on overwhelming evidence that brand advocates habitually share information on the products they use, are thought leaders in their constantly expanding social circles and their actions influence the opinions and purchase decisions of many others.
Social customer’s really emphasize the input of those who define their graphs. They evaluate the shared experiences of those they trust, and expect business to respond to their socialized questions.
