Go Go Power Rangers - Page 2
Don’t Abandoned A Loyal Community
Sharing news information with the community first is a good way to go. The active fan participation kick started a somewhat dormant ranger board fan community and turned it into a thriving news source for all things Power Rangers. I’ll admit that I’m still an active observer (Although I no longer comment), the users on that forum champion the show, whether the episode was good or bad. One of the reasons why I return to Ranger Board is to find out the latest rumors for the season and listen to Q+As from past Power Rangers actors from the user who owns No Pink Spandex.
A Familiar Face
The return of Farcus "Bulk" Bulkmier, played by actor Paul Schrier. I’ll admit, his role on Samurai has been minimal with little-to-no interaction with the new cast, but somehow, seeing his face makes me giddy like a little school girl. I believe the writers should integrate his character more, but for most older fans, having a familiar face on the show is good enough to keep watching.
Power Ranger Brand Ambassadors
Power Rangers has one of the most active Facebook pages around. Posts from the admin are instantly “liked” and commented within seconds. The admins implement simple, yet effective engagement posts, including:
· Caption this
· What was your favorite
· Fan submission contests
But one of the most effective tactics has to be using the actors behind the rangers’ helmets as ambassadors. Several of the actors have their own fan Facebook page and Twitter that they use to respond to fans and show behind the scenes materials. Whether you’re an older fan or a new comer, seeing your favorite heroes Tweet and share Facebook images does nothing but make you a bigger fan. See some examples here, here and here.
What’s Next for A Power Ranger Fan?
Like a true Power Ranger fan, I’ll be saving money to buy a plane ticket, hotel and ticket to the 2012 Morphicon. And this type of brand loyalty and fan engagement is the type of results that creative folk, alike, crave for.
