    The Challenge.

    Raffles Hotel was seeking to reach a broader, younger audience through a social media campaign that would extend their brand message from traditional channels.

    Working closely with the Raffles Hotel team in Singapore and Raffles Makati, I created "Save the Date," a live, social media dialog sponsored by Raffles Hotel's very own wedding planning experts.

    The Insight.

    Weddings are serious business.

    They're stressful to plan, and attention to the details is critical.

    Raffles Hotels is all about the details, the best of the best and they must always be presented as the final word on weddings.

    The "What if..."

    What if Raffles Hotels could help young couples spend less time planning their wedding, and more time planning their new life together?

    Working closely with the Raffles Hotel team in Singapore and the recently launched Raffles Makati, I created "Save the Date," the world's first live, social media powered wedding workshop sponsored by Raffles Hotel's very own wedding experts.

    The Execution.

    The social media event launched on Facebook to an astonishing 17,000 likes and shares in just a few hours. The Facebook campaign increased Raffles' average Facebook engagement rate by over 50% in a single day.

    Working with the amazing Raffles team, I led the development of a social playbook and communications guidelines for the event itself.

    But, it didn't stop there, the live event took place over Facebook and Twitter, generating over 300 hundred questions.

    The goal was to not only establish Raffles Hotel as the wedding experts but also to drive sales opportunities for the Raffles business team. The event was so successful, in this regard, that we extended the campaign with a series of Facebook video posts and a Raffles Pinterest page to keep the dialog going.

    What a great experience! The Raffles Hotels team was perfect throughout, and I'm very proud of the results.
