Case Study

Reaching the Key Audience with Targeted Social Media Marketing

Strategic business consultancy Fortro Ltd enables businesses to maximise optimal growth using their current resources and to develop captivating growth strategies that intrigue investors.

Visionary Founder Aileen wanted to connect with more clients and create a strong brand on social media but couldn’t devote the necessary time to crafting consistent posts.

Forto Ltd is now on the £100 Post Plan, which includes:

  • three posts a week to Founder Aileen Boyle’s personal LinkedIn;
  • and three posts a week to the company’s Facebook page.

It also includes access to a Content Panel which allows Aileen to preview, edit and approve posts before they go live.


The Challenge

Finding Time to Create a Strong Presence on Social Media 

Founder and CEO of Fortro Ltd, Aileen Boyle, said that before working with 100 Pound Social, social media took up too much of her time and headspace, “I was at capacity and needed to get rid of the mental exhaustion.”

Aileen told us: “I needed a company which dealt with social media as its speciality in order to make the process super easy for me and bring a lot of value.”

She tried other social media services but found their feedback systems didn’t work, “I couldn’t express the voice and tone that was needed.”

The Solution

Providing an Extra Resource to the Business in a Cost Effective Way

The regular social media posts by 100 Pound Social have increased awareness of Fortro Ltd and grown the company’s online network, including Aileen’s personal network on LinkedIn.

Aileen is pleased with the consistent number of impressions the posts are generating on Linkedin. She says people have noticed her increased presence on the platform and have told her they love the content.

Aileen says working with 100 Pound Social has helped her business in several ways including:

  • creating a strong reputation;
  • building a brand;
  • showcasing her expertise;
  • and communicating with her target audience. 

When asked about working with her Content Team at 100 Pound Social, Aileen says giving feedback is “so much easier than starting with a blank sheet of paper.” 

After providing 100 Pound Social with feedback on drafted content, the fast turnaround time means she’s never kept waiting for changes to be made. She says: “it’s easy and I still have control.”

She continued by praising the content of the posts, saying “matching my voice is really important and the posts now do that consistently. The messaging and brand voice are clear.”
