#2 – Be Helpful
Carter’s recently welcomed expecting parents to a series of free, live, virtual events on Facebook that will help prepare them for parenthood. Oh, and there were $5,000 gift cards up for grabs!
# 3 – Acknowledge D&I
Though indirectly, Carter’s is calling for an inclusive and diverse workplace. In their Open Positions ad on LinkedIn, they write: “A culture of inclusion and embracing differences is important at Carter’s.”
Takeaway: Nowadays, marketers need to ask themselves, “What is my brand doing to make the world a better place?”, “How have our charitable or extracurricular initiatives helped customers’ lives?” and “What changes and improvements have these efforts had?” etc.
And then to make sure to communicate it all consistently enough to be evident even on an occasional stroll down the LinkedIn feed.
