How American Express Grows Its Social Media Presence
This article from Mashable, written by Erica Swallow, discusses how American Express has slowly but surely expanded their social media presence. Starting off using Twitter and Facebook as a customer service type of tool, they have now expanded their presence to be more engaging. One way they do this is by offering rewards by syncing your credit card to your profiles. By doing this, they can offer deals to their customers. Another neat way was during SXSW. They sponsored a Jay-Z show. Not only did you need to have a badge, but you also needed to carry an American Express card.
Once I saw an article about American Express, I was immediately interested. It is such an exclusive and small, well-known brand that I have always admired. Although they are exclusive, they are not snobby. I have always loved their brand because it was really simple and attractive. I loved this article because I loved learning more about what American Express does. Their high class customer service is also seeped into their social media. From offering customer service help to even offering deals online, the company just becomes multi-dimensional and for some reason seems to transcend what other companies attempt to do socially. They just seem to be a really cool company to be aware of. I just really want an American Express card, okay??
Great case study
