OUR ROLES
CHALLENGE

The goal was to increase the visibility of the Berkeley Country Club’s brand across owned, earned, and paid media so that they could become a prominent golfing and event destination in the Bay Area. To do so, we helped them revise their digital branding efforts to target and attract a younger, more diverse audience.

DISCOVERY

We reviewed current performance based on sales reporting, KPIs, and customer demand within the marketplace to discover opportunities to enhance their digital presence and meet their business goals.
There were three primary challenges, which include:

  1. Brand: Take a 100-year old brand and transform it to one that appeals to today’s members.
  2. Reach: Develop opportunities to improve leads and consideration by investing in structured content marketing & digital ads. 
  3. Conversion: Develop a robust digital marketing CRM with a layer of analytic reporting.

The goal of developing a new digital strategy was to strengthen Berkeley Country Club’s revenue streams.

We exceeded this goal by establishing ways to measure marketing ROI and by aligning marketing budget and activities with business objectives.

We infused digital branding into their sales process by exploring ways to streamline sales processes and conversions. We also developed a process to use digital platforms for lead acquisition.

SOCIAL MEDIA

To have an effective social media presence, we focused on tailoring communications to speak directly to the desired target audience. The social media communication aim was to:

  • Raise awareness of Berkeley Country Club’s membership benefits and other club services
  • Increase membership conversions of potential club members through social engagement and ads
  • Establish a communication strategy to engage relevant communities and demographics

Our social media communication was centered on four things:

  1. 1. The need for community, recreation, family time, and slowing down
  2. 2. The Berkeley Country Club’s facilities and why it is the place to have your next corporate event, wedding reception, or banquet
  3. 3. Club Life or BCC members’ benefits, what it feels like to be a member: benefits, packages, experiences
  4. 4. Berkeley Country Club’s promotions, events, upgrades, and announcements
