Building Brand Relevance in the Digital Age

Posted: Aug 19, 2015

Millennials - a headline-grabbing generation. They’re important not only because they’re the largest, most diverse generation yet, but also because they’re becoming parents and welcoming the majority of new babies into the world. For Fisher-Price, this new consumer required a significant shift in marketing communications. In order to build brand relevance with this generation, Fisher-Price had to connect where they spend their time - on digital.

Learn how Fisher-Price is integrating its PR and digital marketing efforts to connect and engage with today’s generation of parents through the successful and ongoing Best Possible Start campaign, including a global partnership announcement with pop star, philanthropist and mom Shakira, and the Wishes for Baby viral video and social media campaign at the start of 2015.

At the heart of this case study, you’ll come to understand how Fisher-Price turned insights into action and continues takes an integrated approach to PR and digital marketing to drive brand leadership, buzz and affinity.
