Winning Your Social Community: A Seattle Seahawks Case Study Lindzee McCain Blogger Extraordinaire Simply Measured

Over that past few years, the Seattle Seahawks have become famous for their very loud fans. These people have tipped off the Richter scale. Last season, on their marvelous march to a world championship, the social media team supporting the Seahawks faced the challenge of translating all of that fan enthusiasm and energy onto social media. How loud could the “Twelves” tweet?

According to Seahawk’s Director of Digital Media, Kenton Olsen, they took a fan-centric approach, paying a lot of attention to the Twelves.

Our fans are a huge part of the Seahawks’ success, so our strategy was centered around saluting and empowering them.

They continue to do so, with this philosophy apparent throughout every aspect of the Seahawks’ social presence.
