Pinterest is red, Twitter is blue, what have these brands been up to?
Jumping on the back of seasonal trends is something that can really help to drive a brand’s social media marketing. And as we’re all aware, February is the month of romance.
Retailers everywhere have been selling their heart shaped goods in bulk, convincing unsuspecting boyfriends across the globe, to buy expensive bracelets and chocolates galore.
More and more companies are exploiting this day of romance, to help build their online presence using the power of social media, and to be fair, some are just too good not to mention!
We’ve found a list of our favourite Valentines Day campaigns for 2015; check them out here:
Tesco have always had a great personality on social media, especially when it came to Tesco Mobile. The supermarket giant has created these fabulous e-cards based around their store, products and even the annoying self service machine that we’re all too familiar with!
Every year, Oreo have their Valentines Day campaign spot on and they have’nt let that slip in 2015. Oreo have based their campaign on their newest product, Red Velvet Oreo and have created a series of animated videos, showing its power of love!
Eat Me Sweets
Traditional and American sweet shop, Eat Me Sweets, have used their products to drive their Valentines Day campaign by creating cute and ‘punny’ graphics. Marketing themselves as a retro sweet company, Eat Me Sweets have also created content inspired by 1950’s American romance, included personality quizzes and retro date night themed blogs.
Like Oreo, Krispy Kreme have always ran their Valentines Day campaigns flawlessly. The doughnut franchise have created their own range of Valentine themed products and have released a series of animations and engaging photos. Going that one step further, Krispy Kreme also jumped onto the 50 Shades of Grey hashtag and created their own version of the artwork.
The Swedish flatpack favourite Ikea, have ran a very similar campaign to Tesco. Using their much loved products and some cheesy pick-up lines, Ikea have created their own e-cards for users to print off and give to their Valentine. After all, nothing says romance more than frustrating, build-it-yourself furniture!
