Sunkissed London - MBA Digital Marketing Case Study



Produce a digital portfolio and an executive report that outlines a digital marketing plan and makes recommendations for a course of action for implementing a full digital marketing strategy on any topic.


The request was accomplished by creating an online community, or tribe, called Sunkissed London: Cultivated Insights from a Global Community of Women Living in London, an inclusive and interactive online resource pertinent to the lives of global, multi-cultural women who have migrated to London to create a life anew.
The main promotional tactic of the campaign was the production and promotion of Unfiltered, a mini documentary, featuring women from the online community. The film
 was developed and positioned as ‘edutainment’ or educational and entertaining content to pique interest in the Sunkissed London community. The film premiered in March 2014 at Royal Holloway University of London and was subsequently released on YouTube.
To generate further buzz for the online community, an awareness campaign was devised and implemented.
