The Objective

Surrey uses social media often as its first communication touchpoint to engage with its citizens and to inform them of its initiatives, programs, and important public information. Popcorn was tasked with evaluating Surrey’s current social media efforts and to provide recommendations in five key areas: 1. Channels, 2. Policies, 3. Advertising, 4. Engagement, and 5. Impact.

What We Did

We audited Surrey’s existing social media channels and developed a comprehensive social media strategy, standard operating procedures (SOPs) to align operations and requirements across all Surrey’s internal communication departments and partners.

  • A digital measurement model with the most important metrics and indicators for the City
  • A reporting dashboard to track quantitative and qualitative highlights across the organization on an ongoing basis
  • Content and brand guidelines to ensure individual business units align with the City’s goals on social media
  • Key messages and themes for all of the City’s social media channels (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube)
