  1. 1. RPC Honey Hunt Facebook Campaign Overview & Logistics
  2. 2. Berenstain Bears: Marketing Plan Facebook Campaign Overview Campaign Overview In order to attract children to the performance, the RiverPark Center needs to target mothers during the social media campaign. Due to various past performances at the RiverPark Center, women in the household have the most influence when buying tickets for families. According to a study performed by Edison Research in 2014, approximately 69% of American mothers used Facebook, more than any other social media site. Mothers use Facebook frequently, as 49% of mothers check Facebook several times a day. Using this information as a guide, the RiverPark would generate more ticket sales when using Facebook during campaign efforts. Facebook posts need to be timed strategically to attract mothers attention. The Edison Research report in 2014 found mothers prefer hands-free communication in the morning; only 17% of mothers use internet devices in the morning. Mothers are more likely to check Facebook later in the afternoon or in the evening. Due to this, Facebook posts should not occur no earlier than 4 PM and no later than 10 PM. The Facebook campaign will focus on a community-wide scavenger hunt, aptly named RPCs Honey Hunt, (#RPCHoneyHunt) after the first Berenstain Bears book, The Big Honey Hunt, in 1962. A Facebook event page will be created detailing the scavenger hunt to the audience. A buzz will be created for the community-wide scavenger hunt by pitching a story to the Messenger Inquirer early October. The hunt will begin October 12, 2015 and end November 9, 2015. Each Facebook post will contain a promotional reminder to the followers about Berenstain Bears, and a link to the event page. Riddles will be posted on the event page. The riddle will lead Facebook followers to a different location in Owensboro, where a QR code will be found. The locations will be related to healthy eating, due to Owensboro Healths sponsorship, along with Independence Bank to promote their Little Patriots program in exchange for RPC endorsement. A partnership between RPC and the various locations could be established so hunters could receive small prizes from the place of businesses, as well. Once scanned, hunters will be lead to a hidden page on RiverParks website, containing information on the Berenstain Bears performance, ticket links and information, and a printable PDF file for the numbered honey pot. After the five weeks of riddles, honey hunters with all printed honey pots can receive a prize related to the performance. Winners will be featured on the Facebook page.
  3. 3. Berenstain Bears: Marketing Plan Gaining awareness of Facebook campaign: Time table & logistics 1) Pitch story to Messenger Inquirer Pitch story at the end of September, so story will run first week of October. The scavenger hunt begins October 12th; story needs to run early enough in advance to create a buzz for the hunt. 2) Create Facebook event RPCs Honey Hunt Create Facebook event one week prior to start date, which would be October 5, 2015. On the event page, include explanation of the scavenger hunt, such as: Join the RiverPark Centers first ever Owensboro-wide scavenger hunt, The Honey Hunt! In honor of the Berenstain Bears performance at RPC on November 20th, 2015, families have a chance to make memories and have lots of fun with this endeavor. Starting on October 12th, RPC will post a weekly riddle, leading to a location in the Owensboro area.

  4. 4. Berenstain Bears: Marketing Plan Partnership Preparation In September, the RiverPark Center marketing team needs to contact business owners to make sure they would like to be apart of the Honey Hunt, and whether they would like to offer a small prize for the honey hunters (since RPC is leading consumers to their location from the scavenger hunt). Because Owensboro Health is sponsoring Berenstain Bears, three of the five locations could be related to the healthy eating initiative, and possible flyers for Owensboro Health could be found by the QR codes at participating businesses. Also, another location could be Independence Bank, as the RPC continues to create a mutually beneficial partnership with the bank. The bank could offer information for their Little Patriots program at the QR code location, as well as another small prize (up to banks discretion). The final clue will be held at RPC.
