Stages of work

The eve of the New Year is a traditional, but therefore no less suitable news feed for increasing activity on social networks. So our client Lanet Network decided to hold a New Year’s drawing in order to stimulate regular subscribers and attract new ones. As people before the New Year’s holidays tune in to the positive and open up to something new, we tried to launch not just an ordinary competition, but to make it an element of the holiday, so that everyone can feel a little Santa. Therefore, a charitable component was included in the mechanics of the New Year’s competition – for each like and repost 1 UAH. went to the account of the Tabletchki charitable foundation.

The conditions of the drawing were extremely simple

  • Like the Lanet FB page.

  • Like the contest publication and repost it on your page.

  • Write your desired prize or New Year wish in the comments.

By participating in both stages of the competition, the subscriber’s chances of winning doubled.

Valuable prizes were chosen for the prize fund that could interest various segments of the target audience, namely: game consoles, TVs, months of free services from the company.

Bright, eye-catching creatives with a simple and clear message were prepared for the posts.

As part of the advertising campaign on the like page, we have identified the 5 most effective segments of the target audience. For each of them, we have specially developed and tested sets of creatives, 5-10 ads for each segment. In total, we got almost 50 ads within the framework of this advertising campaign.

Media plan
