Campaign objectives

In May 2022, Uute Scientific attended its first industry event in the United States: New York Society of Cosmetic Chemists Suppliers Day 2022. 

Prior to the event it was essential for Uute to raise awareness about their brand and their Re-Connecting Nature™ extract to US audiences, as well as start forming connections with the representatives of the industry in North America.

Solution

UP for Digital focused on activity on LinkedIn, as the B2B social media platform allows for some very granular targeting, to raise awareness about the Uute brand through a mix of organic and paid activities.

Organic activities

UP created a content calendar for the weeks leading up to the NYSCC22 event and drafted a mix of posts about Uute’s presence at the event, as well as about the brand itself, creating a number of visual assets, including ads and videos.

UP posted these updates at regular intervals to ensure that everyone visiting Uute’s LinkedIn page would be up to date with the company’s activities.

Paid campaigns

UP planned and managed two paid campaigns related to the event that targeted cosmetics researchers and indie cosmetics brand owners in the United States: 

  • One focused on generating contact details from American representatives interested in Uute and / or attending the event.
  • One served as a general brand awareness campaign.

Throughout the campaigns’ life cycle, the performance exceeded expectations, hitting all of the current LinkedIn benchmarks and generating valuable leads in the new market for Uute.

Content creation

To ensure that the LinkedIn audience visiting the website stayed informed about the event, we updated Uute’s website with the event details on the homepage and created new blog posts detailing Uute’s presence at NYSCC22. 

Results

The social media campaign was a real triumph for Uute on both the organic and paid activities. The campaign outperformed LinkedIn's forecasted results by over 156% delivering a healthy number of quality leads to the business. 

The lead generation campaign gathered a substantial number of leads in the two weeks it was active, and achieved a high click through rate, both statistics surpassed LinkedIn forecasting. Additionally, in the three weeks that UP managed Uute’s LinkedIn page, and ran the brand awareness campaign, the company gained a huge number of new followers increasing by 41.2%.

The paid campaigns’ data has also proved invaluable in planning the next marketing activities for the brand and gave insight into the main brand’s strengths.
