A Global Focus: Join the Live Chat with Ford Digital Marketing Manager

By Ford Social Member

With a global messaging goal for the next-generation Focus, Ford is utilizing digital media to engage drivers across continents. One example is the Focus Global Test Drive , which put bloggers and consumers from around the world into the driver’s seat to earn money for a charitable cause through completing challenges in the Focus.

Brock is currently the Global Digital Marketing Manager in the Ford Global Marketing Sales and Service Operations. His area of responsibility is focused on digital marketing efforts related to global vehicle programs and global digital marketing technologies.

You can join Brock here on Thursday, February 24, 2011, to ask him questions about developing and launching the Ford Focus across the globe.

@Dave: If by "gargon" you mean jargon, the digital strategy is how we define and differentiate our approach on the web. More than just taking our offline elements and placing them online, there are other elements that we need to consider for our online audience.
