The aim of this study is to identify the main marketing approaches incommunicating a luxury brand through social media. Employing a framework byPhilip Kotler (2008), a quantitative content analysis of the social media platformFacebook of six major luxury companies presented findings that were evaluated bycase study analysis. Specifically, the brand resonance pyramid, developed by KevinLane Keller (1993), is reviewed as a means to track how the marketingcommunications environment can affect luxury brand equity. The findings indicatethat all types of marketing communications are performed on the social mediaplatform, highlighting the differences that exist when product types are compared.Further cases studies present the extent to which marketing communications affectluxury branding strategy. This study contributes to marketing academic research onthe use of social media as part of brand building. However, there appears to beroom for further research.
