Target Audience: L.L. Bean’s audience is vibrant with a love for the environment. Customers are typically looking for out-door adventures in scenic locations. The primary demographics for L.L.

The marketing objectives leverage their social ecosystem in the following digital channels: Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and the L.L. Bean e-commerce store and other channels.

Digital Conversation: In a robust effort to grow L.L. Bean’s brand, a multichannel strategy as been in force since 2008 to engage more customers online. To build brand awareness sites such as Facebook, Twitter and other networks such as Pinterest, a quest for creative content with text, images and video are harnessed for customer engagement (McCormick, 2014). They recently deployed a Google+ platform as well. A diligent social media policy recommends a periodic audit of social media channels to evaluate digital effectiveness.
