Our objective was to create and execute a social media strategy for Mary Carolyn Roberts, delivered through video content, that would secure her election to Metro Council.
The District 20 seat, representing West Nashville neighborhoods, came up from grabs because Councilman Buddy Baker hit his term limit. Mary Carolyn Roberts and Marisa Frank went head-to-head for the seat. Both runoff candidates live in The Nations. While Marisa Frank appealed to the millennials, Talkapolis needed to find a way to educate and motivate that demographic to vote for Mary Carolyn Roberts.
To design and execute a video campaign specific to Facebook. We utilized the autoplay functionality and geographically targeted the key demographics identified. We carefully crafted the message with the help of Mary Carolyn Roberts and her team to place the content exactly where it needed to be. To this day when searching Mary Carolyn Roberts via Google, the Talkapolis campaign is still found on the first page of the Google results, this is a bi-product of the success achieved with video through Facebook.
