Haute Dolci is the North West’s newest luxury dessert experience brand. After a £600,000 investment in the development of its flagship store at Cheshire Oaks designer outlet, Haute Dolci tasked Twentyone with creating an organic social media campaign to increase brand awareness and drive engagement.
“The client’s brief was clear – they didn’t want the usual ‘like and share’ campaign centred around offers or giveaways.” said Sam, Head of Agency at Twentyone. “Haute Dolci is an innovative brand and tasked the agency with creating a buzz ahead of its VIP opening in January 2018.”
With only an 8-week deadline until the launch, we came up with the idea of a treasure hunt, promoted via social media. The concept was simple:
The keys were hidden in a number of North-West locations, and we posted the first clues on social media. The hunt was on!
Keys were hidden at secret locations around the North West, and clues were posted on social media. The hunt was on! The lucky people to find a key were able to access the North West’s newest luxury dessert experience – and get a few extra treats in the bargain, too.
The campaign was a big hit – on Instagram alone, Haute Dolci gained 5,400 followers and a total of 2,300 likes on their posts within the space of just 8 weeks.
Prior to the start of the campaign, Haute Dolci had a minimal social media presence, but under Twentyone’s management they went on to enjoy a firmly established, dedicated following across several platforms.
At the time of writing, these numbers are now over:
Following the launch, Haute Dolci has now awarded Twentyone the responsibility of full management of their social media, capitalising upon the success of the initial campaign as the brand prepares to open a number of new stores across the UK.
