Harnessing Popular Culture to Optimize Brand Messages for Viral Distribution
How To: Go beyond traditional messaging avenues to put your brand in the stream of consumers’ conversations.
Schick engaged Edelman Digital and BuzzFeed to create a culturally relevant social media campaign. “Razorbombing” and “Shave the World,” encouraged consumers to engage with the brand in a way that tied into major memes of the moment such as planking. By tapping into what consumers were already talking about Schick leveraged that buzz and positioned the brand campaign for optimal pass along and shareablity.
