VISA INNOVATES WITH SOCIAL MEDIA AT LONDON 2012 OLYMPIC GAMES
Along their long and grueling journey to the Olympic Games, athletes seek inspiration, encouragement and “cheers” from their social networks. In its first "social-by-design" global marketing campaign, Visa created a “cheer” platform as part of its Go World campaign – giving fans an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of Team Visa athletes preparing for the Olympic and Paralympic Games. In this session, Visa will share a case study discussing the key insights that led to this social-by-design campaign, how social media was utilized to bring the world together in a global cheer to support Team Visa athletes, tools that allowed fans to connect with their favorite athletes, ways Team Visa athletes got involved and mobilized their fan bases and how social media engagement was rewarded through Visa’s real-time congratulatory television commercials.
