Mother knows best
We invited thortful’s and @allontheboard’s followers to submit their best motherly advice on thortful’s site, with the most voted piece of advice being transformed into one of @allontheboard’s famous poem boards.
This campaign was designed to support thortful’s PR activity around Mother’s Day, to drive social engagement, as well as traffic to the thortful site. To furher amplify the campaign we delivered an influencer collaboration with @allontheboard to further drive social engagment and campaign virality.
In the months prior to Mother’s Day 2021, we implemented a three-pronged strategy to drive links and coverage. We launched the “best on-screen mums” campaign where we used social listening to reveal which on-screen mothers were most mentioned on social media (good and bad). Followed by the “mother knows best” campaign, where we collated and ranked the best motherly advice thortful’s audience had received.
Our influencer collaboration was planned as a way to take the “mother knows best” PR campaign to the next level by calling out to thortful’s social following to submit their advice on the page. The focus was not only to make an impact on social, but to increase the traffic heading to thortful’s site.
We collaborated with @allontheboard – the two TFL workers behind the meaningful poetry that has been appearing all over boards on the London Underground for the last three and a half years. Their meaningful messages have earned them an Instagram following of over 750,000 followers.
