A NEW YEAR MUST HAVE PERFUME – Attracting large initial Facebook fan base

D&G Pour femme, Christina Aguilera Red Sin and Marc Jackobs Dots were the perfumes that our client wanted to promote for the target audience.

Facebook is remarkably powerful and fast tool to share a message, idea or boost a campaign success.

Brand: Elixir Exclusive
Industry: Retail, Health/Beauty products
Fans before the start of the campaign: 1750
Timeline: 21.12.’12  -  24.12’12

Primary target group:

  • Girls/women
  • 17 – 40 years old.
  • Trendsetters
  • Single

Challenge

Statistically speaking, December is one of the most expensive months and a time in the year when consumers’ shopping cart reaches the peak, raising significantly above the average amount.
Elixir Exclusive was well aware of this fact and wanted to position its stores as a great place for picking-up a holiday gift.
Our client chooses Facebook as the main force for the upcoming promotional activities.
We started working together with Elixir just 3 weeks before New Year’s Eve and one of the main challenges right from the beginning was certainly the need to attract large number of fans immediately.

Main idea

How can we manage to build a solid fan base for Elixir Exclusive right from the start, in a limited time period by running a campaign in several days?
This was the first question our team asked and the first challenge we faced with.

Attracting and earning the attention of thousands of fans is crucial if we want to engage large audience in the forthcoming sales-oriented and more important campaigns for our client. 

Goals:

  • Facebook fan acquisition
  • Promoting Elixir Exclusive
  • Promoting: D&G Pour femme, Christina Aguilera Red Sin and Marc Jackobs Dots.

Solution

Despite the fact that our primary goal is fan acquisition, we were looking for opportunities on how to engage fans and get valuable feedback from them.

D&G Pour femme, Christina Aguilera Red Sin and Marc Jackobs Dots were the perfumes that our client wanted to promote for the target audience.
At the same time Elixir Exclusive will get a response from the market about the likability of those three perfumes and which is the most desired among them.
That is how we came up with the idea about “Must have perfume”, campaign supported with Friend gate Facebook application.
