Piglets Adventure Farm is a family run Farm Park in York. Whilst offering indoor, outdoor and animal activities, they continually grow their business with a range of popular events each year. This includes offering over 10,000 home grown pumpkins at their October Pumpkin Festival and Magical Sleigh Rides to Santa’s Woodland Village in November & December.
Piglets Adventure Farm needed to launch their 2020 Magical Sleigh Rides event, pre- promoting the ticket launch date on social media to create awareness, urgency and bookings.
Our team know that even if paid digital advertising is being undertaken, behind every successful paid for campaign is a strong organic social media strategy to strengthen brand and create trust.
It was crucial to push key event and launch date messaging across all social platforms to improve reach and drive awareness, whilst maintaining a strong tone of voice to represent brand personality and values.
Primarily focusing on the networks for which Piglets Adventure Farm had the biggest following, Facebook and Instagram, and working creatively, our team created a content strategy leveraging a mix of post styles and placements across channels. This included newsfeed single image and video posts, events and stories to maintain a good level of awareness across different audiences.
It was important to stagger teaser posts promoting the ticket launch date across a month long period, weighting content to increase the number of posts and urgency of key messages as the launch date drew nearer.
On launch day itself, posts and creative linked directly to the Magical Sleigh Rides website landing page, keeping the number of clicks from social to booking as low as possible.
We made sure to continually review the performance of the posts: analysing the best time to post, the most effective creative to use and which platforms achieved the best results in order to create a strong organic social media plan.
