Budweiser owns World Cup moments throughout the globe with branded social creative
As one of the biggest sponsors of the 2022 World Cup, Budweiser has ALL eyes on them 👀 We love to use the phrase “own your brand moments”. With a cohesive, on-brand set of assets in their Slate account, the Budweiser social team has ensured that they are owning each World Cup moment they share to any of their handles.
Their main goal for World Cup content was to streamline workflows with a centralized hub of branded content for any of their 10+ teams to use, while still allowing individual markets to utilize their own localized assets. It’s only been a week and we’re impressed with just how well they’ve been executing on that goal across all their accounts.
Be sure to watch all of Budweiser’s handles throughout the World Cup for some electric content!
