Topdanmarks Approach to Employee Advocacy

The success criteria for using employee advocacy as part of the sales process is built on three key pillars:

  1. Build general top of mind branding
  2. Drive web traffic
  3. Strengthen lead qualification

Getting it right means establishing a structured and simple setup, frequently creating diversified, ready-to-post content to sales professionals and utilizing Sociuu’s “one-click” feature which makes it simple and hassle free for employees to share content.

To ensure that the initiative keeps bringing value, the success is measured on sale professionals’ satisfaction as well as the use of the tool – and so far, the results are great.

“The insights and statistics provided in Sociuu gives Topdanmark a superb performance overview. It also gives actual data for how and where to improve and even more important it provides frequent updates to the participants – to keep things transparent, simple and with a sense of purpose.”

— Tobias Greibe, Employee Advocacy Manager Topdanmark
