Due to the nature of Pembroke Gun Range’s industry, paid advertising is not an option that can be implemented into their campaign. These platforms do not allow the paid promotion of anything related to firearms.
Initial Take Aways:
The first thing we noticed was the lack of quality in the posts that were uploaded onto the feed. There were many pixelated, out-dated, low-quality images and videos. We then noticed that people were engaging, however no-one at the range had time to respond all of the messages and comments.
Overall Strategy – Engagement Strategy – Content Strategy
From the start, we understood that Pembroke Gun Range had a ton of potential for growth. The strategy that we created was focused around the need to improve communications (via engagement) with their audience, and the need to improve the business’s content (visual/brand representation). Based on these two anchors, we decided to implement the following strategies:
2-4 Hours of Daily Engagement
- Daily Engagement included responding to all DM’s and Comments
- Researching and compiling a spreadsheet of Hashtags in perspective niche
- Daily Engagement within these selected Hashtags via liking posts, liking comments, responding to comments and commenting on posts to generate exposure
Content strategy included designing and creating posts, monthly content brainstorm meetings, monthly photo & video shoots, video editing/curation, setting up and managing content calendar
- Launch Educational Firearm Video Series
- Design High Quality/Engaging/Informative Posts
- Full curriculum creation for Educational Video Series
