In Your Words 9: We’re Going to Disney!

Whether you’re a 5-year-old kid going for your first time or an 85-year-old visiting for the 10th, there’s nothing quite like going to Disney World. For this week’s assignment, I’ll be acting as a social media specialist for one of Disney’s most unique attractions: Epcot. Known for its incredible food selection from around the world, Epcot is truly an eclectic experience that allows visitors to feel as though they’ve traveled the world in just a day.

For the purposes of this assignment, I will be creating a hypothetical IMC plan for the month of April. Please keep in mind that this is strictly hypothetical and is for academic purposes only. My ideas are by no means a reflection of the Disney or Epcot brands. Facebook posts will be made roughly every other day. There will be daily Twitter posts. Instagram will also be utilized in conjunction with both social networking sites.

Goals

With the International Flower & Garden Festival beginning this weekend, the month of April will be critical in terms of drawing in a crowd. In addition, there are several other events that I would target through social media and with an IMC approach. Here are some goals to strive for during the month of April:

1. Increase Epcot Twitter account following by 5 percent

2. Increase Epcot Facebook page likes by 5 percent

3. Set monthly attendance record for Flower & Garden Festival during April
