Six Social Media Tips to Create Waves in the Marine and Yacht Industry

By March 5, 2024No Comments

Being social is what the marine and yacht industries are built upon. So, it’s only natural that a strong social media presence is critical for companies within these industries to reach not only the right audiences but broad audiences.  At Fort Lauderdale- and Aspen-based public relations and marketing agency Durée & Company, we have the expertise to use effective strategies to highlight a brand’s unique qualities, build community and ensure success in the competitive digital world.

In this week’s Dynamo Diary, we’re happy to share our top six tips to steer your marine and yacht brand to success.

  1. Showcase High-Quality Visuals: Emphasizing the allure of boats and yachts with stunning imagery and video content is crucial. What gets potential clients’ attention is visuals of sleek designs, luxurious interiors and yachts in captivating environments. Your brand should focus on consistently posting images that highlight sophistication and distinction.
  2. Cater to an Exclusive Community: Creating content aimed specifically at ultra-high-net-worth individuals is key. Encourage interaction by hosting exclusive online events such as live Q&A sessions with designers or virtual yacht tours. Actively respond to comments and post enticing discussions about the yachting lifestyle. This enhances building a community around your brand.
  3. Share the Brand Story: Sharing the history, craftsmanship and values behind a brand adds even more depth to its social media presence. Highlight the meticulous work that goes into each yacht, introduce team members and celebrate milestones — this creates a narrative that resonates with your audience and fosters trust and loyalty.
  4. Partner with the Right Influencers: Identifying influencers who embody the nautical lifestyle and have an audience that aligns with your target market can create a huge boost in your brand’s visibility. Strategic collaborations can result in authentic endorsements, showcasing experiences aboard yachts and introducing the brand to potential customers.
  5. Leverage Event Exposure: Utilizing industry events such as boat shows as a platform to amplify your brand’s presence is strategic and smart. Build anticipation with teaser content, offer real-time updates during events and share highlights afterward. Plus, interaction with event hashtags and participants increases visibility.
  6. Use Creative Language: Incorporating nautical puns, clever wordplay and fun storytelling can make your brand’s content more shareable. Creative approaches distinguish a brand’s voice in the market and can make technical yachting concepts more accessible to a wider audience.
