MONTRÉAL, Nov. 23, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - On November 13, L'Oréal Canada celebrated the official opening of the Group's very first worldwide Content Factory, a production studio located within the Canadian head office in Montreal. The Content Factory is open to all employees who want to create original content for their brands, such as video makeup tutorials or how-to's, product reviews, testimonials, or product shots, instantly providing custom material for digital platforms.
The objective of the Content Factory is to create content with distribution in mind and to distribute content with a creative focus. More importantly, the strategy behind the Content Factory is to develop engagement with consumers, which is generated in-house through social media.
"The Content Factory is an invaluable tool to achieve our objective of being more agile in social media and creating integrated brand communication to encourage engagement with our brands and drive business here in Canada," says Frank Kollmar, President & CEO of L'Oréal Canada.
The Content Factory provides employees with professional lighting, photography and video equipment. Employees can also request the assistance of a professional photographer or creative director. The Content Factory offers cost saving and practical advantages, but most importantly, it allows brands to reach consumers in a more engaging way and to adapt to new digital platforms. This is a remarkable opportunity for L'Oréal Canada employees to develop content creation know-how and skills, subsequently allowing them to own beauty conversations across social platforms.
L'Oréal Canada is the first subsidiary of the international organization to launch a Content Factory, an idea which was developed here in Montreal.
The inauguration was attended by Frank Kollmar, President & CEO, Stéphane Bérubé, CMO, Ekaterina Dobrokhotova, Consumer Engagement Manager, all from L'Oréal Canada, as well as a special guest, Facebook Creative Strategist, Peter Grimaldi, who was on-site to train the teams.
