If you have a business and a mascot (with a mascot marketing plan), you know how important social media is. You probably already use Facebook, Twitter, and you may blog regularly. Those are all important ways to increase brand awareness and drive web traffic. Using your mascot on these platforms can be an incredibly powerful tool to engage with your fans. There’s another social media platform that has really taken off in recent years and that’s Pinterest.
A mascot is a powerful tool that businesses, organizations, and corporations can use to connect with target audiences, market a brand, garner media attention, and more. While many organizations choose a character to represent their brand, a mascot can simply be your logo brought to life. Aspects of your logo, or even your logo in its entirety, can be crafted to connect with your audiences while staying true to your brand.

When Tania Lopez started her journey promoting healthy eating and nutrition to children and families in the Bronx, she had no idea it would take her on such a fabulous adventure.
With the idea of encouraging discourse around healthy eating and nutrition, Tania took to social media.

The coquis are named for the sound they make, a singing “Coqui, Coqui” at night. Tania created Coqui with the idea that healthy eating needed a child-friendly mascot.
