Social Media & Community Building

Working online and offline to build an engaged community.

A loyal fanbase is the key to a successful brand or product. A strong brand grows from inside out and thrives on the positive recommendations of ambassadors rather than advertising. We enjoy helping our clients build a strong fanbase. The key word is ‘together’. And social media is the backbone of our strategy.

Campaign for Cyclefan010.

Online

Social media are a powerful tool for reinforcing your offline message. You can start conversations with (new) target groups, seek input on what to improve, as well as ideas. This is why socials are essential for companies, brands and places, and they’re constantly evolving. Content is king and revolves around image and authenticity. Keeping up with social media is often underestimated: every platform demands a tailored strategy and content. But with the right approach, you can connect with different target groups and build an engaged community of fans and ambassadors.

We use influencers in addition to widely known social platforms. Influencer marketing involves using a person or group to influence the behaviour of the target group through their reach in connection with a specific theme. Influencer marketing is very ‘now’, which explains why it dominates the current advertising landscape. Urban influencers can also exert enormous impact on regional development – ambassadors who can single-handedly put a region or building on the map.

Offline

Building a fanbase may largely happen online, but it’s essential to connect with your audiences physically. And if you’re seeking to create a larger-scale presence for buildings and development projects, you need to get all the stakeholders involved. We do this through field research and consultation sessions groups with stakeholders, on projects such as Centrum Schalkwijk and the pop-up city park on The Grotekerkplein in Rotterdam.
