In order to yield the best results, incorporate a holistic approach: ramp up organic social content, amplify the approach with paid media, reach new and highly engaged audiences with influencer marketing, and include strong creative assets along the way to drive everything home. A campaign is best when paired with many aspects of social. Which is most important, you ask? Well, that’s like asking a mom to choose her favorite child (answer: she has one, but she’ll never tell). – Associate Director, Accounts & Strategy
Content shouldn’t be overly branded. If graphics are added into the creative, make sure they are colorful, energetic and play into the love that goes along with this holiday. The designs should be as celebratory as the wonderful women we are honoring on this day. Make people smile! – Lindsay Gilbert, Associate Creative Director
Mother’s Day is a holiday based on relationships. By showcasing real women and their real stories, you can create a genuine connection with your audience, as many moms have shared similar experiences. Think user-generated content (UGC) or an emotional hashtag that draws upon the bond between a mother and her family to truly resonate with your audience. – Associate Director, Accounts & Strategy
Leverage creative and copy to tell the emotional story in a video format and make sure the copy mentions shipping cutoff to drive urgency. Align budget in two flights, one to focus on e-commerce (leading up to shipping cutoff) and another for in-person last minute shopping. – Mallory Horn, Director, Paid Media
