Influencer Campaign: #stablewoof - Stablewood Coastal Cottages

The Challenge

CLIENT’S BRIEF

Stablewood Coastal Cottages own and operate 26 luxury, dog-friendly holiday cottages in the picturesque villages of Lucker and Budle Bay in Northumberland. As many dog-owners are aware, it’s rare to come across accommodation that’s well equipped and beautifully fitted, that also allows our furry friends a place to chillax and unwind with us. 

Gone are the days of leaving the pooch behind.

Our Approach

THE TWIST

Our approach was bold. Showcase Stablewood’s love for dogs whilst also showcasing the facilities of other businesses within the group. We decided to enlist the help of doggie-influencers from up and down the country, offering them a unique opportunity to feature in a red-carpet-style social media video where they can expect full celebrity-status treatment.

We’re talking Bentley’s, spa days at Beau Monde and a swanky meal from personalised dog bowls at the dog-friendly Apple Inn.

Influencers involved:
@lottieandpoppy (40.2k followers)
@eddthepug (120k followers)
@archie_thefrenchbulldog (8k followers)
@briethechi (47.1k followers)
@suhsi_the_chi (5.7k followers) 

Brands involved:
yappy.com – Personalised dog bowls
Barking Heads – Organic dog food
Wellybix – Handmade dog biscuits
Wet Nose Dog – Dog toy hamper

THE OUTCOME
The resulting video was shared across Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube with a combined reached of over 250,000 gaining over 20,000 full-video views – cementing Stablewood’s presence within the doggie community and pioneering the way traditional small tourism businesses approach marketing.

Influencers

Anyone who has an influence over your target audience is an influencer. Whether influential in business, sport, leisure or celebrity circles we have an enviable track record of matchmaking those influencers with your brand. An influencer only has influence if the content they’re sharing or conversations they are having is relevant to what their audiences want to see and hear, which is why we always put the audience first when matchmaking brands with an influencer.

We also understand the power of micro influencers and how long term brand partnerships can generate a healthy ROI.

If you’re curious about whether influencer marketing is right for your brand, get in touch and we’ll talk you through our experience and find the best routes suited to your audience. 

Insight

Insight is about making sense of what people want, how they feel and using this information to create truly engaging brand strategies that lead to the power of conversation about your brand. A brand is not what you tell your audiences it is, it’s what they tell each so the power of conversation should never been underestimated.

Twist helps brands to bring insight to life by making sense of the customer to develop campaigns that inspire and create conversations.

Content

With an insightful, strategic and proactive approach to producing creative content, we invest time to understand our clients’ visions, values and identity so the content we create trumps a thousand words. We are here to help set up and liaise on photography and videography opportunities to propel your brand into the media and social spotlight.

From portraits of your team, to atmospheric vibes that reach far and wide on social, to tempt the glossies and inspire editorial inclusion, we can help come up with ideas for capturing the right moment, so when people see it, they will stop, think and want to know “where’s that”, “what’s that” and “I want that”! And even better… we want our content to create conversations for your brand.

Design

Our graphic designers are bursting with ideas to bring your brand to life with standout and eye-catching creative. 

Whether we create campaign content, bring a new brand to life, energise brand identity or come up with compelling creative ideas to turn your vision into a fun visual story, our team are here to support.

Social Media

In a fast-moving digital world, it can be hard to keep up. Our team are on hand to help position and keep your brand front of mind, and for reaching new audiences with a multichannel strategy that covers all social-media bases.
