THE NEW RULES OF BRAND ENGAGEMENT

The COVID-19 pandemic forced brands to dramatically alter their creative messaging overnight. Brand messaging quickly shifted from product to purpose, from promotion to partnership, all while infusing empathy and relevance. Also, the channels through which marketers reached consumers changed. Brands were forced to relate to consumers on a more personal level than ever before. This moment in time marks a shift in consumer relationships with brands. So, what lessons will brands take into the future of how and where to connect with consumers? We’ll break down what this change represents and the new rules of engagement for brands going forward

HOW BLACK FOREST GUMMY BEARS PARTNERED WITH INFLUENCERS TO BUILD A VIRTUAL FOREST FROM HOME

While the world was sheltered in place in April 2020, Ferrara launched an influencer-led social campaign to give the brand’s fans a way to give back from home. On Arbor Day, Black Forest announced its continued partnership with The National Forest Foundation and invited consumers to "plant" their digital trees using the campaign hashtag. For every tree planted digitally, the brand planted a real one and engaged influencers including Chelsea Yamase, Cory Staudacher, and Kyle Huber to help spread the word. Learn how the campaign connected Ferrara to consumers sheltered at home and scaled it through relevant influencers.
