  10. 10. DecemberSocialChannelManagement EngageFans InstigateSharing GenerateNewLikes The immediate goal would be to migrate as many fans of over to the HC Kimberley page. The social channels would be managed in order to engage the existing fanbase and encourage them to spread the word about how great the Kimberly Chambers books are. We acknowledge that the majority of Kimberley’s previous books are with Random House, but we feel it is important that we raise the profile of all the books she has written too. Involving Kimberley would contribute to the success of this strategy and add to the authenticity of the campaign. A schedule of posts relating to past books, local London past and present, the xmas feud viral and general posts connecting the books to fans’ real lives. Tag your family and share stories. ;) ;) Page 10

There’s no time when differences between family members is more apparent than at Christmas. Fans will be asked to tell Kimberley about their family stories, the lows, the highs, the battles and the solidarities. This will be a tongue -in-cheek look at little family dramas. We will also challenge fans to add a family photo and tag all your family members with FESTIVE FAMILY FEUDS. Engaging further into their social channels.

  16. 16. January SocialChannelManagement EngageFans InstigateSharing GenerateNewLikes Facebook /Twitter The January strategy would be to continue the overall communcation about the books in general, but shift the focus to the new book, its themes and characters. Personal videos from Kimberley would explain themes and characters and prompt responses from fans. The new book cover and / or mini-preview would be revealed on Facebook & Twitter via prompting fans to gain likes, re-tweets for the page. A countdown mechanic would increase anticipation during the week runing up to launch, with previews of the book being displayed on the page. Twitter campaign working in tandem with Facebook at all times. Post Cover Reveal ;) Page 16

  18. 18. January Viral1 - VideoBookTrailers Action: Generateinterestaboutthenew book FansPromptFriendstoLikePage Involving Kimberley in the campaign, talking about the new book via a series of videos, discussing the themes and characters will set up communication between members. These videos can also be used across all online press activity and Youtube. The video will be accompanied by posts designed to inflate reach to friends of current fans - generating new likes and conversations within thier social groups. Eg A particular character is the head of the family... After Kimberley discusseses the character, we ask which of your friends this reminds you of and why. Tag the image with your friend and share.

  19. 19. January Viral2 - BookCover&StoryPreviewReveal EngageFans InstigateSharingviaLikes&Tweets Action: BuildAnticipationfor Book FansPromptFriendstoLikePage GenerateNew Likes We should use the reveal of the new cover to generate new likes. We set a target for each square, for example 20 likes removes a square. Over a short space of time we can use the existing fan base to agressively push up like numbers. This can also be initiated across Twitter with retweets being the objective. When the target is reached an image will be shared across Twitter pics. Page 19

This will comprise of an image/video post with a snippet of the new book. Page 20
  21. 21. January Viral4 - Twitter-#butlersversuswalkers Action: ActivateTwitter EngageConversation To create an addition buzz, we propose creating a twitter campiagn of a spoof fight between the two families in the book. The Butlers and the Walkers typically swear and slag each other off. This taps into what makes soap opera’s, gossip mags and reallife stories addictive and appealing - car-crash twitter.... Followers and friends of Kimberley are also invited to participate in the feud. #butlersversuswalkers Page 21

  27. 27. FebruarySocialChannelManagement BOOKLAUNCHFOCUS EngageFans InstigateSharing GenerateNew Likes PromoteSales Facebook /Twitter On release of the book, the social channels will focus on getting feedback from fans and encouraging them to spread the word about how good the new book is. This would tie in with the Cameo Competition, which would be a major focus of this phase of the project. In store promo of the Cameo Competition would ensure a great reaction to the project, in particular an insert inside the book encouraging people to take part. ;) ;) ;) Page 27
  28. 28. FebruaryInStore - In Book PromoforCameoCompetition Action: DriveTraffictoSocialChannels CreateOnlineBuzz In order to maximise reach, we propose that a prompt for fans to join the Cameo campaign should be included in the book. This could be printed in the book, or presented on purchase either in store or through online invoice email. COULD YOUR FAMILY BE PART OF THE STORY? Kimberley is looking for a family worthy of being part of the her new trilogy. Is your family up to it? Could they handle themselves in London’s East End? to tell Kimberley about your family and you could see your family in book two of the trilogy! GOOD LUCK! Page 28

Page 29
  30. 30. FebruaryViralVisuals-CameoCampaign The campaign would work by encouraging, fans to enter their family, TAG each family member to increase visibility, and generate VOTES (through a Like gate) for each fan. If we acheive our target of 7k before this element starts, then rfeaching our goal with this strategy is very likely. FanMakes Card FanShares Card VOTING NewLikes &Participants Page 30
