Social Strategy: Identifying Culture Trends and Adapting to New Platforms
“Mothers are busy,” “In times like this” and “In a world where” seem to be the most popular ways to start a brief lately. So, how do you do something to stand out? You dig for insights that everyone is thinking about, but maybe not everyone is talking about and apply them to your marketing strategy. But, “in modern times” that strategic approach is likely 360, meaning you need to bring it to life through different touch-points — whether it’s an emerging platform like TikTok or a thirty second TV commercial.
Three Key Takeaways:
- Identifying trends and capitalizing on them within a marketing strategy
- Considerations for B2C brands in emerging social platforms
- What to look for in new channels, how to adapt plans, what measures to take to understand impact
