Seats2meet:

Seats2meet is one of the Netherland’s largest coworking and meeting space providers (180 locations worldwide) and a creator of an innovative matching software - S2M Passport (200.000 passport users).

S2M Passport uses AI algorithm to match its users to each other, and match users to articles, news, and events based on their tags and historical data.

The main content platform of S2M is S2M Online Magazine. Guest writers can submit their own articles that fit the guidelines and the articles are matched to S2M users.

Main Challenge:

Seats2meet was popular mainly among Dutch users in the 35-55 age group. Our main goal was to increase awareness about S2M internationally and among millennial audiences in The Netherlands.

EDGEncy was hired for 2 years to lead the Editorial Team of S2M Magazine, expand its readership and start monetizing through affiliate marketing.

Our Approach

1

Analyzing Data and Trends

We looked at the historical data of S2M Magazine and conducted additional research. We then concluded that, among the millennial population, the most popular topics in the Magazine were Entrepreneurship, Technology, Sharing Economy, and the Future of Work.

2

Strategy

We restructured the S2M Magazine based on these categories and, along with our understanding of the target audience, used them to create a tone of voice and visual identity that is more youthful and progressive. We then created long-term SEO and Social Media content strategies.

3

Process Automation

We worked out a clear structure where any user could submit an article for review under one of the categories.
We created a separate channel for articles featuring promotions of products or services, and created an automated structure for submitting paid articles.

4

Growth

We produced steady, quality content across Facebook, LinkedIn and Istagram, and grew the number of S2M's followers organically. We used Paid Social to reach our target audience across the world. Through Social Media and Paid Social we increased the amount of S2M Magazine readers and partners.
