To create an active and participatory community around Bayer's entire Crop Science division, made up of multiple brands, solutions, and applications aimed at different targets. Being able to bring all these points of view together in a single vision.
We outlined a social strategy in order to communicate brand value and enhance the value of Bayer solutions and initiatives, triggering engagement, sharing, and dialogue with Facebook page users.
Bayer Crop Science implements a synergistic and integrated approach to offer genetic, defence and digital solutions in order to guarantee modern, innovative and sustainable agriculture.
In February 2022, we launched the Bayer Facebook page, adapting the global vision of the brand to our Italian context. We designed a social strategy aimed at transmitting Bayer values to a heterogeneous sector audience, made up of agricultural companies, institutions, universities and researchers.
The intended objective? To increase awareness, attract, and retain new users. We developed a strategy by starting from a study on sector communication and competitors, analyzing the main trends and themes.
In the next phase, we moved on to the creation of contents, taking care of the monthly monitoring of the related results and insights. Based on the data collected, we have gradually remodelled and refined the proposed topics and the tone of voice, to be increasingly closer and in tune with the target audience.
We used the Facebook page not only to inform about Bayer solutions for agriculture, but also as a vehicle to promote the more informed choices that farmers and businesses can implement: the use of digital tools, attention to safety and optimization of resources from a sustainable perspective.
After sowing comes the harvest, and so our strategy has brought the desired fruits..
The page's follower count grew quickly and we achieved relevant results in every aspect: impressions, reach and cost per click.
Today the community recognizes Bayer Crop Science as a model and a reference partner for truly innovative agriculture that is in step with the times and transformations. And for the brand, Facebook today represents one of the main traffic channels to the official website.
