Instagram Influencer Marketing Case Study: KFC Marketing Goes Virtual With Colonel Sanders As A Spoof On Influencers

virtual-colonel-sanders-kfc-influencer

In the crowded influencer marketing space, brands are always looking for the next big idea to help lift their heads above the parapet and mark themselves out from the rest. Launching an effective campaign and building a positive consumer relationship is the principal goal of brands on social media. This can be achieved in several ways, including participation marketing, and quite often the product is of lesser importance than the all-important engagement with followers.

Brands are still trying to figure out what constitutes the best strategy for getting through to Instagram’s enormous user base. Large companies commonly attempt a variety of campaigns to garner attention—from more traditional approaches to wackier, eye-catching ideas.

kfc marketing

KFC marketing has often had its finger on the pulse when it comes to social media—for example, advertising on Twitch when other large brands are less aware of the platform’s massive potential. In addition, a quick glance at their Instagram will show that the KFC marketing team is not averse to trying new things when it comes to marketing the brand on to an online audience.

With 1.4 million Instagram followers, KFC is n line with other major fast food brands and gains significant brand exposure online. It’s only natural that KFC’s marketing team should seek to leverage this popularity and build their engagement, demonstrated by the nearly 700 posts on their page. By comparison, major competitor McDonald’s has over 2 million more followers but a more traditional and seemingly far less coherent strategy, posting just 50 times since 2014.Read More>>
