SSAFA Forces Help are the UK’s oldest armed forces charity helping servicemen and women from all conflicts. Having provided a wide range of support services to SSAFA, Coast Digital were on hand to help the charity leverage the most of the immensely popular Military Wives Choir charity single release on social media.
Supporting SSAFA with social media marketing strategy and implementation
As part of the Military Wives Choir charity single release, SSAFA wanted a social media campaign that would establish their connection with the single and more widely raise awareness for the charity.
Platform specific campaign collateral
Facebook was identified as a key platform for the objectives and as such a Facebook landing page was planned. Collaboratively, a design that incorporated social media best practices was developed. This had the dual purpose of achieving the commercial objectives and increasing downloads of the single.
In response to the goals, the landing page utilised a heavily branded design which contained strong calls to action for downloading the single or visiting the SSAFA website.
Collateral was designed to meet social media best practices
Uniform messaging and branding
To meet the demands of the single release, the landing page was produced rapidly. At all stages design and social media teams worked with SSAFA to ensure the final landing page met the commercial objectives.
During this campaign the amount of traffic sent to the SSAFA website from Facebook dramatically increased, demonstrating engagement with the target audience and improved awareness for the charity.
