Contract Publishing – catalogues, newsletters and magazines

Client: Wessanen UK

Objective: To create a loyalty based newsletter to engage with the independent retailers.

Recognising the importance of the loyalty of the independent retailer channel Wessanen approached us for some creative ideas to generate long term engagement with this key group.

It was vital that all elements of this project conveyed their ethical stance and green credentials. We applied the same principals to this project as we do our own publications and quickly came up with the idea of a club based newsletter, with branding and tone that ran through content, imagery and paper stock to reinforce their message.

Client: Pravera

Objective: Reach out to new consumers with a make-up range

Pravera came to us as they wanted to reach out to new consumer group with their Benecos make-up range.

Based on their objectives the social media team came up with the genius idea of running a competition on social media to win a hamper of their make-up. To enter the competition we asked our community on Facebook to share their morning make up tips with us.

The competition had instant reaction and engagement.

“Running the competition was great exposure for our brand which resulted in a increase views on our social media and a lot more interaction with our target audience. We particularly liked the question element which was an excellent opportunity for us to learn more about our consumer and we are thrilled with the result!”
Elizabeth Macleod - Marketing and Social Media Pravera

A bi-weekly posting schedule has allowed the brand to tap into trend calendar events, encourage customer reviews and boosted clicks to the UK website. It also has allowed the brand to connect with their UK stockists.

Email Marketing – newsletters, bespoke emails

Client: Better You

Objective: Drive traffic to the Better You website

Kim at Better You approached us with a tight deadline to book a standard e cast to go to our Your Healthy Living brand and drive more traffic to their website.

Once we understood what they were looking to achieve we recommended the use of our Funnel Email approach that we have used here successfully at JFN to sell our own services.

We followed this up with a social media boost to support the campaign and extend the reach further.

“The results were really positive and resulted in new traffic coming through to with customers trialling our products. We are now looking to book in more of an ongoing campaign for this active audience to maintain the success.”

Client: Co Fresh

Objective: To increase consumer awareness of his range of gluten free hummus and lentil chips

Simon at Co Fresh approached us to increase consumer awareness of his hummus and lentil chips in the UK and Irish market through the Your Healthy Living and Rude Health Magazine studies.

Having tried these for ourselves we were able to brand this as part of our “Find out why we think you’ll love…” e-casts which we knew as a team would work far better than a blatant sales message.

These e-casts frame the sales message in such a way that it is engaging, approachable and easy to understand whilst highlighting all the clients salient points.
