Comparison Overall, good use of social media platforms to access target market – share photos, advice and promote respective charity campaigns More effective use of social media: • More accessible • Funnier • More memorable • Generally well thought out use of social media •Have a good basis for social media covering a number of networks. •BUT have failed to use social media effectively enough to attract more of an audience and also mitigate effects of bad press. •Pinterest – very successful, pampers NOT doing same thing.
  28. 28. Recommendations: Pampers •Keep finding novel ways of getting consumers to share photos in order to get involved with the company directly •Build brand loyalty •Do more competitions •Social influencers- Work with influential ‘mommy bloggers’ on a regular basis to manage online reputation •Instagram •Brand searches
  29. 29. Recommendations: Huggies • Focus more on specifics of social media marketing • Dedicate time and resources to development of social media networks and campaigns & show commitment to those campaigns. • Need to differentiate from Pampers, e.g. extend Pinterest to include children’s parties, christenings etc. • Think about how every audience (not exclusively the target audience) will interpret any campaign • Listen to audience, respond to feedback • Instagram
