We helped solidify our clients brand on socials and drive registrations for their event up by 400%.

Industry:

Founded:

About the client:

Prestige Events originally started as a magazine, providing event professionals with crucial news and information on the events industry. It is now a parent brand to the Prestige Events Magazine blog, The 2020 Club, The COOL Venue Awards & Sustainable Events Show.
Recognised by the likes of Gordon Ramsay and Richard Branson as the one stop shop for anyone searching for event charisma.  

The goal:

Drive awareness and registrations for the inaugural Sustainable Events Show, a groundbreaking event that took place at The Barbican Centre in London on the 26th of November 2021, to address how the events industry would deal with the climate emergency currently facing the planet.

The challenge:

Due to the 4 sub brands under the Prestige Events umbrella, the messaging on socials was confusing. This was making it difficult to reach their ideal buyers/suppliers online and promote their next events effectively whilst pushing out the news articles to their industry also.

Strategy 🎛

Social optimisation 🤝

We began by optimising all social profiles associated with Prestige Events.

Instead of creating four separate accounts for each sub brand, we decided to unify everything under one roof, with each sub-brand having its own set of brand guidelines. 

 

This made it easy for the audience to recognise which event was being promoted and discussed online and created consistency for the audience to follow.

Content Themes 🎨

We quickly identified LinkedIn as the lead platform for the business.

After noticing that any content relating to the exhibitors received far more engagement than anything else, so we leaned into that in a big way and created a themed interview content series that went out daily, alongside the educational content around sustainability and how to register for the event.

We used the data from the organic social campaign to influence ad targeting on LinkedIn. 


Targeting event managers and coordinators, marketing managers and sustainability officers within the target industries for our client with a scroll-stopping informational video about the event.

Soaring social engagement  ✈️

With the social media now unified under one umbrella and achieving consistency with the various content themes we put in place for the brand, our clients LinkedIn page saw a huge surge in activity and engagement. This carried on climbing after the event had taken place!

Industry:

Events/Weddings

Founded:

2013

About the client:

TM Event Hire is a family business based in Essex that provides hire equipment for private and public events like weddings and parties.

The goal:

Drive more qualified leads for high end weddings and private parties in need of marquees in the west Essex area.

The challenge:

Company was seen as a generalist, with no clear marketing/lead generation strategy. As a result the leads were low quality and low value, asking for a mixture of services that spread margin too thin across jobs.

Strategy 🎛
WhatsApp Image 2020-01-27 at 16.55.56.jpeg

Research 🔍

After initial customer analysis and some small polls on social media, we discovered that the most profitable hire jobs were mostly weddings, as they were the jobs where all the extras (like dance floors etc.) ended up being added in as a package deal. 

We also found that a large pain point for potential customers in this market was the stress of organising their "big day" and also knowing which contractors to trust.

This gave us valuable insights as to how to create content for the ad campaign and which copy to test first.

The Website 🖥

We identified the former website a a major block in the funnel for the client. It looked very much like a holding page with contact details for the caterers and suppliers they worked with, instead of a site that young couples could browse and get inspiration for their big day.

We felt the experience needed more of a “white wedding” feel that allowed visitors to browse the full range (with marquees at the forefront), we also made sure that customer testimonials were ever present across the site, alongside FAQ’s for each individual service, to increase buyer trust.

We produced an extensive design audit for the client to give to their web developers, detailing our suggested changes to increase conversions from the site.

Optimisation of Socials 📱

We identified that a large amount of organic enquires were coming from the Instagram platform, so we decided that the Instagram page needed to serve as a “mini website” for the business. 

We optimised the profile and content strategy so that potential customers could find out as much as they could about the services TM Event Hire provided in the Instagram highlights, whilst also being able to see high quality pictures of recent hire jobs and customer testimonials in the feed.

Video Ad Creation & Testing 🎥

Our content team created a series of short promotional videos (two are featured below), showing a marquee build from start to finish, with a particular focus on the extra effort that TM Event Hire puts into making their customers happy.

These were run as Video Views Ads to a broad, geo-targeted audience across Facebook & Instagram at the same time in order to see which video performed best/received the most views.

Once the video ads had amassed enough views, we then created specific Custom Audiences to "retarget" only the people who had watched the majority of the videos.

This top level strategy was run alongside a wide array of cold advertisements being tested amongst different audiences in order to find the most profitable demographics for the campaign.
