International social media

It will help you build a Facebook strategy
but only as long as your content is fresh,

See some similarities with SEO
and Content Marketing?
Many answers you need are in fact hidden
in the Facebook Ad Manager.
It’s not the most
It's a free way to know
how many people like what you’re writing about,
in a country of choice.
It allows you to target a
very specific audience,
and similarly to AdWords, it also suggests related terms:

I’d say so. But the UK’s keeping up.

Why? Is this just the usual

No. This is actually backed by a formula that

Through the Facebook search bar, Graph Search allows you to
find something specific
pertaining to people, photos, places,
and interests through simple search queries.
Facebook said you can also use Graph Search to discover new restaurants by, for instance, searching for "hotels in Seattle visited by my friends" or "Restaurants in New York liked by graduates of the Culinary Institute of America".
And with great power comes
Graph Search will also become more and more of an
inspiration for community managers globally…
All this doesn’t mean that Facebook and search engines will live by the same rules,
but it means that an SEO is in
a good position

We boosted eBay Italy’s Annunci and Kijiji Facebook
Client expected the page to grow from 40,000 to 60,000 likes over 3 months
Caliber took it to over 80,000.
we also managed to set all of the page's all-time records, with nine of the campaign's posts becoming the
best-ever in terms of performance for the page.
Under our management, eBay Annunci reached very high peaks of
engagement, with People Talking/likes peaking around 15% into the third month of the campaign.
As a result of this success,
Caliber is now also managing Kijiji.it’s Facebook page.
Our most recent data suggest that Kijiji.it
was the Italian Facebook page with the best engagement rate in the month of August.
Cost Per Like is decreasing accordingly,
having almost halved since the start of the campaign
Out of the page’s top 20 posts for engagement rate,
18 were made since Caliber’s takeover.
Our strategy was consistent with the client's vision, and they gave us creative leeway and set realistic KPIs.
This allowed us to go from strength to strength and develop an even better relationship with the client
