The biggest PR and social media mishaps

10th July, 2013 by Andy Young

From having to give away over 60 bottles of Champagne to offending entire countries, some marketing and social media plans have not gone entirely well.

CoorsMarketing is an integral part of any brand’s publicity planning and social media has become an increasingly important part of that as well.

And while some brands are rocking social media, mistakes still happen and when they do the joys of the internet can often mean they are seen around the world very quickly.

Here’s our look at some alcohol-related marketing and social media mishaps.

One Response to “The biggest PR and social media mishaps”

  1. As far as PR and social media disasters go these are some of the most damaging. Occurrences like this are becoming more and more common and thanks to the growth of social media I think this is set to continue. How much a brand is effected by an event like this is down to how they respond and I have to say that Maker’s Mark reacted really well.
