The power of an authentic marketing campaign (and how to create one) - Memeburn

The power of an authentic marketing campaign (and how to create one) - Memeburn | Social Change | Scoop.it
1. Stay true to your core values

2. Understand your customers’ likes and dislikes

3. Tell meaningful stories

4. Take calculated risks

Be willing to take risks — as long as they align with your core values. For example, be transparent about what problems you want to solve and how you are fulfilling your mission by overcoming them. Consumers want to be empowered and are are willing to reward brands that touch them in meaningful ways.

5. Drive organic social media

Social media has gone from a free channel to a big budget line item because its the companies pushing their content rather than customers and fans using their own organic social reach (which doesn’t have any corresponding expense). If you can emotionally inspire followers to take your campaign to their social media networks, the distribution is much faster, it’s free, and it feels more authentic.
