Consumers Go Dotty for a Hamper

High Street women's clothes retailer, Dorothy Perkins, were looking for an internet promotion for their social media channels in the build-up to last Christmas.

They decided on a competition to submit the best retro family Christmas photo onto their Facebook and Twitter accounts, asking Christmas Hampers UK to provide a hamper as part of the prize. We were only too happy to help.

Dorothy Perkins selected out Festive Fitted Hamper Basket as the prize, which we branded up with a printed sash and provided photos for their promotional launch. From the start, our social media accounts were 'mentioned' in their posts so that we could monitor the progress of the promotion.

Dorothy Perkins customers took to the competition straight way, digging out and family Christmas photos, submitting them and mentioning our accounts. Asa result we received hundreds of mentions and new followers.

Finally, Christmas was upon us and the winner was announced. We delivered the hamper direct to the winner's house and immediately received some kind words from them about the quality of the hamper and how they were going to use it over the festive period.

This is just one example of how using a luxury hamper as an incentive, can create a social media buzz around your brand... and, as 'a hamper isn't just for Christmas', these campaigns can be carried out at any time of the year.

If you would like any more information on how we could help you with sales incentives, internet promotions, social media campaigns or gift hampers for any occasion, please don't hesitate to contact us on 01384 445844 or e-mail
