Effective Corporate Social Media Presence
July 17, 2015 1:39 PM   Subscribe

What are some good examples of effective corporate presence on the various social media networks?

Examples would be Brandy Melville on Instagram, who use it as their primary marketing channel, and Taylor Swift on Tumblr, who wields it like a hammer - ask Apple.

Not too fussy on which site or app the presence is on. FB, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, Tumblr, Snapchat etc etc... it's all good, in fact the more diversity the better.

Bonus points if they're in the FMCG sector. Double bonus points if they are a skincare/cosmetics brand.

Best answer: Denny's tumblr is... bizarre, but an effective use of tumblr. It definitely engages with tumblr on tumblr's level.

Ooh, I have quite a few examples of this - and a few years of working with global cosmetics brands. Are you looking for B2B or B2C?

Yes, if you're looking for examples of brands engaging with the platform in the same way as the average platform user, Tumblr has some striking examples. Denny's Tumblr is the go-to example of this. Here's an article on the subject. Another good Tumblr example is the NBC Hannibal account, here's an article on that

The U.S. Department of the Interior is a government agency but manages its Instagram account like a brand and does an amazing job.

Which, as that article points out, is pretty effective use of Twitter on John Oliver's part. But to directly answer the question, Sue the T-Rex is one of my favorite things on Twitter, and so much more entertaining than the official Field Museum account.

Not strictly skincare, but I've always thought Birchbox has done a pretty awesome job of cross-platform content promotion. Their YouTube account is particularly solid.
