PepsiCo strategy for brand engagement: Go within

Wondering how corporate brands are embracing social media?

Pepsi Refresh Project website

Jesse Stanchak interviews PepsiCo’s Frank Cooper in this good post on PepsiCo’s brand engagement with its Pepsi Refresh Project.

[W]e decided that this year it was time for the brand
to actually go within culture and actually move
something forward, so that it was actually getting
engaged with consumers.
– Frank Cooper, PepsiCo

Emulating Social Change Groups:
Partnerships for Community Good

This corporate project has embraced the social innovations of online fund raising, micro lending and social change websites like Network for Good, and Kiva where visitors are prospective donors to proposed community based projects.

To promote the project, Refresh Everything has secured key celebrity partnerships to include Kevin Bacon‘s Six Degrees project and Demi Moore in supporting Girls Educational & Mentoring Services.

Thinking different yet?

It may be some time before there is a sea change in corporate marketing strategy, though moves like PepsiCo signal a strong need to move towards authentic consumer engagements for competitive survival in the marketplace.

How do you use social media to engage consumers?
