Want it Wednesdays Winners!

4th February 2016

Throughout January we ran our Want it Wednesdays social media promotion. After the expensive Christmas period, we wanted to help shoppers beat the January blues by giving something back to them.

Every Wednesday, a prize from Castle Dene’s retailers was up for grabs – all Facebook followers had to do was ‘like’ the post on our Facebook page for the chance to win. We offered a range of prizes: £50 in vouchers to spend in a choice of Castle Dene’s stores, a Boots No7 hamper, a Sweet Dreams sweetie hamper worth £25 and a £20 Wilko gift card.

The Results

The four Facebook posts offering the prizes earned hundreds of likes and shares. In total, the campaign reached 85,423 people on Facebook and 4,443 on Twitter, making the overall social media reach for the campaign an incredible 89,866 people. Engagement was high at 11%. In fact, it was one of the most successful social media competitions we’ve ever had!
