Transcript

  • 1. Increasing brand awareness
    using social media
  • 2. Knowing what’s hot
    A key aspect of Ptarmigan Bell Pottinger’s online strategy for the Leeds Corn Exchange was to increase the Twitter and Facebook audience and to position the Corn Exchange as the heart of cultural activity in the city.
    Thorough research was undertaken to identify key bloggers, tweeters and forums. From this research the team established what were the hottest topics and events in Leeds.
    An event called Bettakultcha was chosen as a growing cultural event that could provide the perfect platform for the Corn Exchange to grow its online audience.
  • 3. Bettakultcha is a night of Powerpoint presentations from people who are passionate about a specific subject. The rules are simple:
    • Anyone can do a presentation, but no sales pitches are allowed.
    • 4. All presentations will only be 20 slides long.
    • 5. Each slide will last only 15 seconds before it goes on the next one.
    • 6. When 5 minutes finishes so does the presentation
  • The Event
    The event sold out (270 tickets) within three days of going on sale. We held five pairs of tickets back to giveaway as a competition in the week before the event. The ticket giveaway prompted 75 entries and produced 89 mentions of @leedscornex on Twitter.
    During the event we used the hashtag #Bettakultcha which allowed the event to become the fourth most trending topic on Twitter nationally and the number one trending topic in Yorkshire.
    Social media channels were full of people talking positively about the Leeds Corn Exchange and best of all sharing photo’s of the building.
