Context & Challenge:
Heavenly Feet is a dynamic ladies footwear brand with a strong focus on comfort, style and value. Despite being a direct to consumer brand, Heavenly feet had zero visual representation of their brand being worn by their consumers on social media. The result? Low brand affinity and little to no engagement with their ideal audience on their owned media channels. In the face of competitive and ever-changing retail environments, the company knew they needed to find a way to reach new customers, but had little understanding of how to connect with this untapped audience…
Enter Girl About Social… Working directly with the brand she identified and drove forward three key campaign objectives: 1) grow followers & engagement on Instagram, 2) collect and amplify user-generated content, 3) maintain sales during a global pandemic.
The ROI generated by this campaign far exceeded Heavenly Feet’s expectations with follower counts on Instagram doubling from 2,228 in May 2020 to 5,000 in December, thanks to Girl About Social’s authentic and relationship-led approach to influencer marketing: an approach which saw 15 enthusiastic followers passionately take up the mantle of brand ambassador on behalf of Heavenly Feet during the course of the campaign.
Beyond this, business stakeholders also felt inspired to extend the scope of the campaign and invest further into the brand’s Instagram platform – so undeniable was the value of Girl About Social’s strategy and approach.
