Case Studies


iThenticate - Web Presence Management

iThenticate is one of the leading professional plagiarism detection and prevention software, by Turnitin, used by scholarly publishers and research institutions. The software is widely used to ensure the originality of written work before it is published. However, chances are the software will fail to detect unintended plagiarism due to the existence of limitless information on the internet.

Aim of the campaign

iThenticate wanted to spread awareness about the significance of plagiarism removal from academic documents through its social media platform. Hence, we aim to:

  • Update users about plagiarised content.
  • Build brand name across different demographic regions.
  • Increase web traffic and generate hot leads.
  • Use various social media platforms to engage prospects and members of the research community.

Approach by Social Media Marketz

  • As a large platform, Facebook targeted reader’s attention through regular updates about plagiarism and allegations of non-compliance through FB posts and discussions.
  • Newsletter and blog post sharing on the profile page as well as in relevant groups
  • ‘Plagiarism Education Week’ campaign was organised in association with Turnitin to give awareness and prevention tips to people about plagiarism.
  • A free registration page was linked to the campaign page to collect details of the prospective and interested users.
  • The core objective was to present and explain the motive of the brand and how users would benefit from it.

Building Presence at Twitter

  • With 1 tweet and 1-2 re-tweets on a daily basis, the account was made interactive and engaging.
  • #plagiarism, #research, #fraud and similar hashtags were used for tweets.
  • #integrity2015 was the hashtag created to promote the ‘Plagiarism Education Week’ campaign.
