In a national campaign developed by tag, First Choice Haircutters is putting the call out to all consumers to capture and share what makes them #FCHappy. Consumers are invited to share their photos from inside an FCH salon via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, using the #FCHappy hashtag. By doing so, they are automatically entered into the #FCHappy contest for a chance to win over $10,000 in prizing.
The campaign, which will run nationally in Canada and regionally in the US, is supported by TV, digital and social advertising, in-salon activations as well as database targeting, and will leverage the new 2015 campaign messaging – ‘Happy Looks Good on You’. The campaign captures the positive emotional experience guests have with the FCH brand, and how a new look has the power to transform their mood.
“Our expansive base of loyal customers has told us that they choose FCH because of their positive experiences with the brand and our amazing stylists. We wanted to give them a platform to share their experiences, whilst rewarding them with some great incentives. As well, we wanted to motivate non-users to give the brand a try in a fun, approachable, relevant way!” said Athena Kalkanis, First Choice Haircutters Brand Director.
Danica Wolch, director of client service at tag said, “We have already seen a fantastic response from the ‘Happy Looks Good on You’ campaign. We‘re excited to take it to the next level,by creating some additional excitement for the brand and really pushing the social element of the program”.
Wolch added, “We wanted to engage the consumer, in a space that is comfortable for them, so social was a natural fit – all roads converge there.”
The campaign launched on March 9th and will run through until May 4th.
