Helping Dove collaborate with and amplify the voice of community ‘Handraisers’

Dove has taken action with Miappi, Getty Images and Girlgaze to create Project #ShowUs – a project designed to change beauty stereotypes.

Project #ShowUs invites individuals in 15 different markets to upload their image and story directly to campaign websites via a Miappi powered form.

The resulting content and PII lets Dove identify and collaborate with individuals whose stories resonate most closely with the campaign values.

Miappi is unique among community platforms in its ability to recruit creatives based on their existing presence on social media. You no longer have to rely on consumers finding a third-party app before they find you. Instead, we tap into existing conversations through our social listening capabilities, cutting out the middleman and putting brands in direct contact with consumers who have something meaningful to contribute to the conversation.


Collaborate & Create

Once you’ve invited people to your community you can speak to your members one-on-one or as a group. Run surveys to find out what they think of your new products and services. Invite members to create campaign-relevant new content and reward them for their hard work in ways you think are appropriate.


Curate & Approve

The new assets created by your community can be filtered and managed. Shortlisted content can be used in your future marketing campaigns - published directly from Miappi into channels including brand websites, ecommerce, social media and retail, or exported for use on other platforms in your marketing stack.

With Miappi you can find, licence and publish the best user-generated content. With Miappi Community you can now identify the individuals behind that content and build communities of people who love your brand and its values.

Use Miappi to find your most creative, passionate consumers, people who you can collaborate with in order to produce great content for years to come.
