Castle Hampers

Advertising Campaign

The Challenge

Castle Hampers needed to review and improve current advertising and media activity with a view to retain existing customers, grow use amongst dormant and non-starters, and drive sales leads.

The Solution

Four pyramid focus groups were conducted with the following:
Dormant customers
Active customers
Non-starter customers
Non-customers.
Portraits were created of the Castle Hampers target market. From the market research conducted, a deeper understanding of the target market’s motives and their perceptions and attitudes towards the Castle Hampers brand as well as past advertisements was attained. The key findings guided the direction and messaging of the advertising campaign. The overall result was a focussed and engaging advertising campaign that uses emotion as a hook, a strong personality to reflect the brand and powerful use of graphics and dialogue to stamp home the direct response aspects.
