BUILD, ENGAGE, SCALE, REPEAT...BUILD, ENGAGE, SCALE, REPEAT
With context being such an important part of social engagement, the question arises as to how national and global brands broadly develop and maintain relevancy while still influencing their consumer base to act on a local level. With hundreds of Marine locations and millions more prospective recruits using social media across the United States, the Marine Corps recognized an opportunity to scale their national efforts to the local level. They saw an opportunity to engage with particular audiences on a deeper level and strategized on how to best connect with them. Similar to organizations like Starwood Hotels, Ford and others, the Marine Corps scaled their presence and then built a comprehensive framework of training and guidance to ensure a unified brand on social media. But with multiple page administrators and various audiences, how do you keep brand messaging and engagement style consistent? Come hear the Marines share their secrets on how they sustain their impact as the largest government brand on Facebook, while developing additional influence through their most important asset: Marines on the ground.
