How Vendula got 1,811 sign ups and over 40% engagement rate in just 17 days

Background:

Vendula is an original fashion accessories brand whose key product is funky bags. “We launched Vendula London in 2003, and since then we’ve grown to become one of fashion’s funkiest brands with a growing list of customers across the UK, Ireland, Europe, and North America.”

The company wanted to promote their brand by incentivising their follower base and approaching new potential customers via a giveaway campaign on a special date in the retail calendar.


The Challenge:

Vendula approached Whichit on the back of a successful partnership for Valentine’s Day the previous year, this time with the aim of strengthening their brand-customer relations and increasing their potential client database.

Campaign's Goals:

1.    Increase engagement with audience.
2.    Increase brand's awareness and reach new audience.
3.    Increase brand's potential database.


Concept:

Embeddable Whichit Posts formed the basis of Vendula’s giveaway campaign, which was rolled out in collaboration with fashion bloggers. Using Whichit Pro for the former enabled Vendula to collect data in the form of email addresses. The campaign was further supported by paid promotion through Instagram Ads, regular postings on Vendula’s social media profiles alongside their newsletter.

“We used Whichit App for our latest Valentine’s Day competition. The app itself was embedded onto 3 blogs to collect visitor vote and allow them to enter our prize draw and share their vote on social media. This was the most convenient way to collect votes from 3 different sources.

We found this app really easy to set up with a great design. The Whichit team was always very reactive in sorting out any issue we had although it was very easy to embed it.

At the end, we were pleased with the high CTR we had using this app and the traffic generated on our website. We also collected 1,282 new email addresses to send our newsletters in the future.”
