One powerful approach gaining widespread recognition is the integration of User-Generated Content (UGC) into marketing campaigns.



The primary goal of implementing User-Generated Content (UGC) into Novotel London Canary Wharf’s social media accounts was to elevate brand awareness, enhance audience engagement, and establish an authentic online presence. The strategic integration of UGC aligns with Novotel’s commitment to providing a unique and personalized experience for its guests while fostering a sense of community and loyalty among its diverse clientele.

Our Call to Actions (CTAs) in the captions of our posts inspire guests to share their Novotel London Canary Wharf experiences through strategically placed prompts. Additionally, we use special hashtags to unify the UGC community, aiding content identification and fostering connections among users. By incorporating these hashtags into our CTAs, we create a sense of belonging, encouraging users to contribute their content.

Our engagement extends beyond content creation. We actively converse with creators, expressing gratitude and seeking permission to feature their content. After securing consent, we attribute due credit in the caption, fostering a positive and collaborative atmosphere around the Novotel London Canary Wharf brand. In essence, our UGC strategy involves a proactive effort to involve our audience in the storytelling process, enhancing the visual appeal of our client’s social media and empowering a connected community through shared experiences.
