On Location: Taking Social Media on the Road

Leveraging Events: Social Media Content Strategy

The Event

It’s one of the most prestigious professional bass fishing tournaments in the world, the Fishing League Worldwide’s Forrest Wood Cup.  Our client Evinrude had a few of their pro-anglers vying for top spots in this world championship fishing tournament that took place in August 2017. Evinrude also planned on offering test rides during this heavily attended multi-day event in Lake Murray, South Carolina.

The Social Strategy

Capturing and publishing visual content from Evinrude attended fishing tournaments was one of several tactics based on our social media strategy to deliver informative and entertaining magazine-like experiences across Evinrude’s various social channels.

Social Media Event Coverage

So we packed our cameras, smart phones and laptops, and made our way to Lake Murray to bring the tournament experience to Evinrude’s 145,000 social fans on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube.

Hundreds of photos were taken – including some cool 360-degree shots, along with several hours of video footage recorded.  Many of the tournament photos were published to albums and collections on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. The event-based visual content was well received by fans.

Some of the fan favorites (and ours, too!) from the event are shown below. It’s easy to see why the fans enjoyed these images – they express authentic, memorable moments and exude a friendly warmth that leaves you with a smile. Kind of like the pictures you’d take yourself and share with your friends.
