One silver lining of COVID19 is that it is forcing us to use the internet as it is meant to be used — to connect with one another, share information and resources, and come up with solutions to current problems.
With the cancellation of trade shows and events, we have noticed a burst of creativity as brands look to social media as a bridge to connect with their audience and share content
Several of our clients in various industries including beauty, food & beverage and so on have been utilizing different platforms to interact and engage including Facebook, Instagram Live, or other digital platforms such as Zoom and Youtube
The informational content brands are bringing online includes but is not limited to:
Live demos and tutorials
1 on 1 meetings
Podcasts and Guest Bloggers
We’ve also seen a lot of clever, interactive content to keep fans engaged online including:
Quizzes and polls
Some of our clients in the beauty industry have been utilizing Facebook for streaming content including Hanzo Shears hosting virtual cutting and color classes, Olaplex broadcasting virtual hair shows and Pravana sharing techniques and tips twice a week
In the Food and Beverage Industry, Caulipower has done a great job of leveraging Instagram to host product giveaways (“Win a year of free pizza!”) and Chomps has utilized a similar method by asking fans to share the inspirational messages found on the inside of their product packaging
