“A Warrior’s Education”

Featured

Summary

UWG and the United States Marine Corps initiated an authentic dialogue with Asian-Pacific American officers and enlisted prospects during and beyond the nationally recognized Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month.

The campaign, titled “A Warrior’s Education,” positioned the Marine Corps as a unique opportunity to achieve educational and professional success, and the honor of defending the freedom of others around the world as a profession.

Digitally focused, the campaign drove distinct engagement where Asian-Pacific American youth are most active, and most likely to create and share content: social media.

Execution

A dedicated and shareable tab was added to the existing MCRC Facebook page to house all targeted content. The tab featured four 60-second videos illustrating how respect and discipline play a role in earning a “Warrior’s Education,” in addition to an interactive photo gallery of the Marines’ personal items and external links to relevant information.

The tab was also supported by a series of timeline posts (Facebook, Twitter) and paid social placements throughout the campaign.

Results

During May 2013, “A Warrior’s Education” was the highest-performing tab on the United States Marine Corps Facebook page, with over 13,000 tab views and engagement measures exceeding historical benchmarks.

The average audience retention rate for all four videos was 75.8%, revealing that users stayed engaged with the content and watched more than three-fourths of the whole video. Lastly, posts totaled over 6,355,456 users.

THE HOME DEPOT


Retool Your School

Summary

In 2010, The Home Depot launched the Retool Your School Campus Improvement Grant Program to help Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) with much needed sustainable campus improvements.

Year after year, the online program has strived to increase the reach, total grants offered and program participation.

The program is supported totally online and promoted via digital, social, mobile and radio. At the end of the 2013, the program had awarded almost $700,000 in grants across 49 schools.

Execution

The campaign involved a custom Tweetoff platform that integrated the Retool Your School website, voting, Facebook and Instagram.

This platform allows users to get the latest program stats via the leader boards, vote, make social media posts and view other supporters’ votes. Online/mobile banners and eblasts were developed to drive traffic to the website and tweetoff platform.

Additional support was garnered at the SIAC and SWAC tournaments via in-game activations and signage.

Results

  • 67 HBCUs participated – 10% increase versus PY
  • Overall program impressions – up 45%
  • More than 2.6MM votes were cast – +55% vs PY
  • Social media participation across all platforms increased significantly versus PY
