Honda UK
Social media.

The challenge

In an era dominated by digital transformation, Honda UK found itself at a crossroads. As a brand revered for its innovation in the automotive sector, the challenge was not in product development but in harnessing the power of social media to connect with its audience. The automotive industry is fiercely competitive, with brands vying for consumer attention through various digital platforms. Honda UK needed to elevate its online presence, engage with a broader audience, and ultimately drive sales, all while staying true to its core values of innovation, reliability, and customer satisfaction.

The primary challenge was twofold: firstly, to cut through the noise of an oversaturated digital market, and secondly, to create a social media presence that resonated with both existing customers and potential buyers. The brand needed to showcase its range of vehicles, motorcycles and power tools, highlight innovations, and build a community around the Honda brand, all in a way that felt authentic and engaging. The task at hand was not just about increasing followers or engagement metrics; it was about creating a meaningful connection with the audience that would drive brand loyalty and influence purchase decisions.


Our solution

Understanding the challenges faced by Honda UK, Owen embarked on a comprehensive social media strategy that leveraged our proprietary B2B2C framework, focusing on making complex concepts simple and engaging through evidence-based marketing and behavioural science.

Strategic Content Creation: We initiated our strategy by diving deep into Honda UK’s brand values, product lineup, and customer personas. This research helped us craft a content calendar that balanced product features, customer testimonials, behind-the-scenes looks at Honda’s innovation processes, and interactive content that invited community participation. Each post was designed to reflect Honda’s commitment to quality, innovation, and customer satisfaction, using humour and cultural references to make the brand more relatable and grounded.

Community Engagement and Customer Experience: Recognising the importance of building a community around the brand, we implemented a strategy to engage directly with users through comments, messages, and interactive posts. We invited questions, shared stories of Honda users, and created a space where potential and existing customers felt seen and heard. This approach was underpinned by our expertise in digital and customer experience strategy, ensuring every interaction was meaningful and contributed to a positive perception of the brand.

Data-Driven Insights: Throughout the campaign, we leveraged data and analytics to refine our approach, focusing on what worked best in terms of engagement and conversion. This allowed us to continuously optimize our strategy, ensuring that Honda UK’s social media presence was not just active but effectively contributing to its overall marketing objectives.

The outcome

Our work with Honda UK showcases the effectiveness of Owen’s B2B2C marketing approach. By blending strategic content creation, community engagement, innovative campaigns, and data-driven insights, we were able to transform Honda UK’s social media presence, driving brand visibility, engagement, and ultimately, business results. This case study exemplifies our commitment to de-risking marketing spend and increasing results through tailored strategies that resonate with audiences and deliver on business objectives.
