What Are Social Media Activations?
The use of social media is soaring. As such, it is essential for businesses to connect with their consumers on their favourite platforms, thereby fostering brand ambassadors and guiding customer sentiment. By encouraging your consumers to directly participate in the story of your brand, social media engagement is a more natural form of marketing that feels, to the customer, more like a dialogue than a lecture. This act of organically turning social media users into brand advocates is called 'social media activation'. Instead of passive fans, they become active contributors in events organised by your business such as campaigns and contests.
Brand Activation and Social Media Engagement at Events
Events such as festivals throughout the Middle East and beyond are perfect for brand activation. In order to establish broad and accurate brand awareness, banners and logo placements at festivals are no longer sufficient. The next step can be seen in state of the art technology such as RFID-enabled wristbands. By swiping these wristbands at festivals and other events, brand activations are easily measureable. Social media makes a great combination with this as online accounts can be linked to the wristbands so that event-goers can update their friends and family about their festival experience on the social web.
