Rock Stars of Content Marketing

Beyond coffee, Starbucks is a powerhouse in content marketing.

Starbucks’ commitment to comfort, community and consistency — across its 21,000 stores and its content  — have ignited the brand’s popularity and global dominance.

In the 2014 video Meet Me at Starbucks, the coffee giant tells its brand story by letting its customers tell their own stories from around the world.

To inspire brand engagement, Starbucks has mastered content marketing on social media, including:

  • Exclusive Facebook promotions
  • Special hashtags on Twitter (including #howwemet)
  • Attractive Instagram images

One sentimental Starbucks image paired with a promotion attracted 149,000 likes on Instagram.

As the ultimate proof that Starbucks is a rock star in content marketing, last year the company announced it is launching its own media company.
