Launch 92-year-old Hollywood legendary TV producer, Norman Lear and raise awareness for his new memoir, “Event This I Get to Experience” on Facebook and Twitter. The goal was to make Mr. Lear relevant (again), to a younger audience unfamiliar with his 1970’s iconic TV shows such as “All in the Family” and “The Jeffersons”, as well as remind his core audience of how his shows influenced their lives.
Launch Mr. Lear’s social presence on Facebook and Twitter to jumpstart promoting his book.
Target 2 audience personas to market the memoir:
- Millennials: never heard of Norman Lear but maybe knew of his shows. Messaging highlighted Mr. Lear’s civil rights activism and controversy to excite and engage this audience.
- Gen X/Baby Boomers: Familiar with Mr. Lear and his shows. Messaging highlighted pop culture nostalgia and connection to childhood. Plus how Mr. Lear shaped their generation’s opinions about social issues.
