Walk through time for Johnnie Walker Africa

Walk through time for Johnnie Walker Africa

Johnnie Walker Africa has been with us since almost day 1. We now manage communities across Nigeria, Kenya, Ethiopia, Angola, Cameroon (and other French speaking markets) and various places in between. Given that we are one of the drinks brands to really embrace social media at scale in many of the markets there are high interaction / engagement rates on most content (less local clutter on Facebook).

What’s singing out very clearly is that we’re a mobile lead market (alongside others such as Nigeria and soon to be mobile-led markets like Ghana and Kenya). At the current rate of growth there is likely to be more Facebook users than (desktop) internet users and we’re going to see it spreading down to lower LSMs. Interesting times.

Two Silver Bookmarks

In our debut at the Bookmark Awards (SA’s digital awards). We’re very pleased to have picked up two Silver awards in the social media category. One for kulula’s tenth birthday and the other for Plascon (both integrated campaigns that included a number of agencies within the King James Group).
