Flower Market Circular – Mother’s Day campaign wrap

12 May 2016

Happy Mother’s Day!

This year, the Melbourne Market Authority and Flowers Victoria joined forces to develop a Mother’s Day campaign to drive enquiry to local florists.  The campaign continued the messages developed under the power of the flower banner with our key message “Nothing says I love you like flowers.”

Initial reports from growers and florists are positive, with strong sales reported.

This years Mother’s Day campaign focused on providing:

  1. Point of sale and digital material for florists to use;
  2. Social media advertising – to drive people to their find their local florist; and
  3. A competition – sharing flowers to all the mums out there.

 
Over 155 florists and greengrocers collected their Mother’s Day promotional pack from the pop-up stand at the Melbourne Market.  With even more downloading the campaign elements online from www.poweroftheflower.com.au
 
To drive custom to florists, the sponsored advertising on Facebook generated good results over the 9 day campaign.  Over 178,000 people were exposed to the Market Fresh “Nothing Says I love you” campaign, 2,391 taking action, generating 618 clicks through to “Find a local Florist” on the Market Fresh website. A good result overall.
