the challenge:

The newly-launched brand had almost no social presence and limited content. DCA had to create a platform to engage their hard-to-reach audience, cultivate a strong social community to generate proactive fan engagement.

insight & strategy:

Azamara’s trademark is their destination immersive cruises, which we shared visually via YouTube and with photo albums on Flickr. To truly differentiate from its competitors, it was important to showcase Azamara as destination experts – we used Facebook and a created an article-rich blog to provide tips, trivia and compelling stories from onboard crew. Twitter was employed to reach the travel trade with the latest news and deals. Our strategy provided a platform for the brand loyalists to engage and become ambassadors, sparking conversations and attracting new users to the community.

the result:

  • Twitter reached its goal of 2,000 followers in about a year
  • We increased Facebook fans by over 375% in total and reached goal of 10,000 fans in less than a year
  • Facebook fan engagement grew from a 38% activity rate to an average 77%
  • Facebook campaign generated 250,000 post views in 2 months with 92.5% increase in Likes as the average campaign result
