Frequently asked questions

What is the SRO Activation Program?

The SRO Activation program is a step-by-step program with assignments, online lessons, and coaching sessions based on behavioral science and practical experience. The SRO program helps companies to activate brand ambassadors on social media. It provides them with tools and knowledge to boost their activity and confidence on social media. Read more on our SRO activation program.

What makes an SRO activation program essential for successful adoption?

Our SRO program offers clients a strategic, data-driven method for fostering employee advocacy. This approach maximizes brand exposure and boosts engagement by providing meticulous guidance and training. Armed with a distinct purpose and essential tools, employees become driven to share both branded and personal content. Conversely, the absence of this program could lead to diminished adoption and inconsistent advocacy, owing to the absence of direction and support.

How much time does it take to start with the SRO Framework?

You can start immediately by taking a 2-hour course. After completing the course, you determine your own pace, and the small steps are clearly outlined in Apostle. The project manager in charge is referred to as the SRO coach and is active in this role for approximately 8 hours per month.

Is prior experience necessary to implement the SRO program?

No, you don't need any previous background in social media marketing or brand management to take on the SRO Practitioner or Professional course. While a basic familiarity and comfort with social media are beneficial, they are not obligatory. The all-encompassing course is designed to cater to various backgrounds, ensuring that individuals can thrive as SRO practitioners, irrespective of their level of experience.

How to start a brand ambassador program, and how long does it take?

When initiating a brand ambassador program, we suggest commencing with the SRO methodology. Equally crucial is to launch your brand ambassador initiative with a select group of enthusiastic and socially adept colleagues. Activating all brand ambassadors simultaneously is an ambitious goal. Instead, introduce your program with a small group, and as you achieve initial successes, expand gradually. This approach will likely attract the participation of additional colleagues. In totality, our recommendation is to pursue a gradual scaling process. Depending on your company's size, the process of activating a substantial cohort of brand ambassadors could span from six months to a year.

Can I also manage my corporate company pages and replace my other planning tools with Apostle?

Definitely, with Apostle you can use both personal and business pages simultaneously. Simply connect your business pages and your employees’ accounts all in one dashboard. After creating one or multiple posts you can select the corporate pages and persons you want to suggest the post(s) to. Simple, straightforward and very easy.

How do I get started with the platform?

The first step is creating your SRO strategy with your dedicated SRO professional. This is the framework for your social media activities in Apostle. Together, we’ll determine your goals, target audience, content themes, and KPIs. Besides, we’ll guide you through the platform setup and help onboarding and activate your team of brand ambassadors. Don’t need our help? With the self-service package, you start on your own with a thorough course on SRO. Don’t worry, our support team is always happy to help with technical issues and activation tips.

How much time does it take for a social media manager per month?

Creating, suggesting, and sharing posts with Apostle is very time-efficient. With our comprehensive composer you schedule your posts in no time. Craft distinctive messages using our AI feature, translate your posts in a few seconds, and schedule your posts over time for all your groups of brand ambassadors.

How much time does a brand ambassador need to spend?

Sharing with Apostle is easy and doesn't take up much time at all. Brand ambassadors can edit and share a suggested post with just one click of a button. This way a brand ambassador only has to invest a couple of minutes per month. Apostle also has an auto approve function. With the auto-approve feature, the suggested post will automatically be approved and shared so that your brand ambassadors do not even have to invest a second of their time in Apostle.

How do I ensure that the platform is adopted by my employees?

The SRO methodology has been developed to activate your brand ambassadors and keep them activated in the long run. Based on scientific research on behavior change, this methodology is the key to your brand ambassador program’s success. In addition, our platform offers a bunch of gamification and engagement tools to help activate your team. Please consult our sales team for more information.

Can I post videos, Stories, and Reels via Apostle?

Posting videos on your corporate and personal social media accounts is possible for all supported platforms. Unfortunately, it’s not possible to post stories and reels on Instagram via Apostle.

Is tagging people and companies possible in Apostle?

Directly tagging in the web dashboard of the platform is possible for the personal accounts connected to the Apostle platform and company pages on LinkedIn and Facebook.

When posting via the mobile app tagging all personal and company pages is possible. However, this requires a manual action by the user performed on the social media channel itself.  Read more about this functionality in our Knowledge base.

How about the privacy of my colleagues when starting with an employee advocacy program?

You can read all about privacy, data processing, and legal matters in our Legal Resources Hub.

When I purchase the complete SRO package, when do I start paying for my Apostle subscription?

The complete SRO package includes an Apostle subscription from the start, as you need the platform to incorporate all program components in Apostle. The Apostle subscription and the payment for this element will start right from the beginning.
