Digital Marketing & Social Media

People Generation worked with the KASH web team to update the Kfest website with new content, newsletter sign-ups, deleted old content and posted post-event blog posts for next year’s visitors to view.


For our social media efforts, we posted content regularly on Korean Festival’s Facebook page that received high response rate from fans. We also created a hashtag (#Kfest2014), which gathered great grassroots content from visitors of the 2014 Korean Festival. We also worked on-site the day of the Korean Festival 2014 and updated all social media pages to provide timely information for visitors. In addition to social media posting, we also helped create an ad on Facebook for the Korean Festival raffle and generated value unique click-throughs.

The Takeaway

If you didn’t get a chance to go this year, we missed you! But, there’s always next year! People Generation had a great time interacting with all the KFest fans and working with KASH this year, and are looking forward to the 7th annual Korean Festival in Houston.
