How Coca-Cola empowers fans all over the world — live with Adam Brown

Continuing our previews for Word of Mouth Supergenius: The “How to be Great at Word of Mouth Marketing” Conference on December 16 here in Chicago, we bring you word of mouth supergenius and Coca-Cola Group Director, Digital Communications, Adam Brown.

Here Adam shares a few tips based on the case study he’ll be presenting:

  • Fish where the fish are. Coke is focusing on putting content where the fans are by sharing everything on Twitter, Facebook, Bebo, Orkut, etc.
  • Learn to sell these big ideas as internal partnerships. Coke’s Expedition 206 is a partnership of marketing and communications. It’s a new concept at Coke, and probably at any company — and one of the biggest challenges of new media is internally determining where to host these activities.
  • Start using these new tools yourself. Get a feel for them by just trying them out. The vast majority of them are free, and your testing might be where some great new ideas come up.
