  15. 15. OK OK…but why do you want a global and a local social media presence? Think about Coke! It’s @Coke and @Coke_CA
  16. 16. What does it take to do it successfully? “We want our own channel!” In a large global company many people want and have opened their own channels – this becomes a graveyard. Before you open your own channel we require you to have: • An objective tied to the business goals of the company • 3 months of content and the resources to create more, along with a p p r o v a l s p r o c e s s ( L e g a l , management) • BUDGET!
  17. 17. Scaling is the secret sauce. Yes, another secret sauce. • Not a one-size fits all approach for global-to-local. • We try to scale by region, instead of globally. Ends up looking like: 1. Corporate Campaigns: Big pushes for our company. Designed centrally and rolled out in our 2 main languages, with other Business Units translating. 2. Regional hubs: In some regions this makes sense to centralize efforts and get the cost-per-post down. 3. Local-led efforts: Tend to be hyper-local. Roadshows, community events, etc. • Don’t forget to scale listening as well. • 2 way street, it’s impossible to know the local landscape as well as your team.
  18. 18. What’s essential in a Global Strategy? • Every decision you make should ladder up to your organization’s business objectives. • Know your audience: Targeted approach to content. • Build a robust channel strategy. • Optimization means scaling sustainably.

  21. 21. Global campaign Toolkit 1. Clear objectives (Brand Awareness) 2. Editable files and fonts 3. Paid Ads guidelines and budget 4. Customizable CTA 5. Tracking UTMs and links
  22. 22. Don’t forget to have fun! N o t a l l o f y o u r campaigns need to be strictly business when scaling. Know what matters for the world and show how it looks through your brand’s lens!
  23. 23. Connect. Don’t Project.
  24. 24. 1. Standardize: Branding, positioning, customer care, benchmarking, research 2. Customize: demographics, local competition positioning, language, culture, posting time & frequency Key Takeaways. #FalconEd
