A Toast to Collaboration: How Budweiser Optimized its Global Brand Presence with Slate

Budweiser, one of the world’s leading beer brands, has a significant global presence with customers and fanbases stretching across all corners of the globe. Renowned for their unforgettable marketing campaigns and partnerships, Budweiser’s branding must be as consistent as the taste of their signature brew. Yet, ensuring a consistent brand image across different cultural contexts and 10+ social media properties is no easy task. That’s where Slate came in.

Challenges 😰

With over ten international brand handles, including Spain, France, the UK, and Japan, as well as their global brand handle, Budweiser found it challenging to manage and create consistent, engaging social content. International team’s don’t have equal resources and the central global team needed a way to empower all groups to produce content easily that met their high requirements for branding and consistency.


Slate to the Rescue 🛟

Budweiser turned to Slate to transform these challenges into opportunities. With Slate’s easy to use social content creation and creative asset management features, Budweiser was able to drive a cohesive brand vision across their diverse teams during brand activations, like the World Cup, breaking down geographical, time, and resource barriers.

“Slate has helped our brand teams around the world standardize and execute turnkey beautiful assets within our brand guidelines for our largest global campaigns with ease. Overall our social outputs are elevated and premium with Slate!

— Morgan Franklin, Global Marketing Manager @ Budweiser
