“I could not be more thrilled with the results. infinitee played an intricate part in helping us to exceed all our expectations for a successful event.” - Stacey Brady, Director of Marketing and Public Relations for Grand Boulevard
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 15, 2013
infinitee, a full-service marketing and advertising agency in Atlanta, GA was engaged to execute a strategic marketing and advertising plan for the 2013 South Walton Beaches Wine & Food Festival in Destin, FL held this past April.
Success of the advertising program required reaching affluent adults in potential feeder markets that would be interested in the event as well as the charity component benefitting the Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation in Northwest Florida. From website development to collateral, infinitee promoted the unique identity for the festival which incorporated five very distinct wine personas. The personas were brought to life both online and in printed marketing materials for the festival including event brochures, tasting guides, animated banner ads and event signage.
A three-tiered media strategy combining digital display networks, an affluent website partnership and a paid Facebook campaign was implemented to effectively achieve ticket sales. A partnership with foodandwine.com was layered into the campaign for micro targeting of “foodies” and wine aficionados in surrounding markets. A paid Facebook advertising schedule was also integrated with behavioral and interest targeting to encourage Likes and social sharing. Lastly, a high-powered social media campaign was launched to further promote the event and drive ticket sales on four social platforms: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.
The digital campaign produced over 5.5M ad impressions and 2,500 qualified clicks. The multi-channel media campaign, which started with no social presence, gained quality engagement: 3,353 Facebook Likes, 637 Twitter followers, 111 Instagram followers and 533 Pinterest followers.
Ticket sales exceeded all goals with more than 3,200 attendees and a total of $30,000 donated to Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation that when distributed, will help 14 children’s charities in Northwest Florida.
