Organizing for the greater aviation audience.

FSF shifted from an individual benefit-focused organization to a foundation that supports the overall promotion of safety within the aviation industry at large as part of a rebranding effort. In order to position the website appropriately with the new brand focus, a content curation and aggregation system were built to offer notable industry content as well as content sourced via their editorial staff. This “one-stop-shop” approach to the subject allowed the website to anchor the interest of a new generation of aviation safety enthusiasts.

FSF sought to strengthen engagement with their organization and content. The multiple platforms for engagement that FSF already had in place included events, webinars, social media, email, and their magazine. Our digital marketing team created an easy, user-friendly event and webinar registration process. We also created event microsites that were utilized to promote major conferences and programs, as well as highlight sponsors, schedules, and advertisement. WDG also implemented email marketing campaigns that would engage with FSF’s underused email lists and notify users of upcoming news and events.
