How Did Rodney Wayne Build Up Their Email Database Quickly & Ethically Using Social Media?


New Zealand business Rodney Wayne Franchisee – Swan Management Limited (Rodney Wayne) engaged Mobilize Mail’ CampaignHub’s* social media marketing solution to build up their email database quickly and ethically. CampaignHub’s Event Campaign solution for Rodney Wayne ran for just two-weeks and the results exceeded expectations.

Running a Prize Draw Event using CampaignHub exceeded my expectations. In just two weeks I grew my email list by over 500 people, and secured business for my salons. The CampaignHub team took care of everything and were great at coaching me through the learning curve associated with more new technology. I didn’t know my business could really get such a good result from social media marketing. Time to start thinking about our next campaign and how we can get even more leverage!

Overview of the Campaign Event Solution for Rodney Wayne

A dedicated landing page was created to communicate Rodney Wayne’s Prize Draw. The landing page has a ‘register now’ link to the Prize Draw registration.

The Prize Draw was also directly accessible via Facebook Pages and Twitter profiles.

Utilising Mobilize Mail’s email marketing and delivery service Rodney Wayne delivered a Prize Draw message to their email database, where recipients could link directly to the Campaign Event registration or view more detail on the landing page before clicking through to register. This process was measured via our email and campaign statistics reporting.

CampaignHub’s sharing tools programmatically broadcasted the Prize Draw to multiple twitter profiles and Facebook Pages during the two-week campaign.

Campaign Event – Facebook Page Promotion Tab

Presenting the Prize Draw in Facebook was achieved via the creation of a custom tab added to a Facebook Page. This custom tab was added to Rodney Wayne’s page and configured to be the first page visible to all non-Page followers.

The custom tab was managed by CampaignHub and allowed visitors to view the Campaign Event details and then click a button to register.

The referral program of the Campaign Event provided Rodney Wayne hair stylists with new client bookings and an opportunity to secure repeat business. This Campaign Event was considered a resounding success for getting real business benefit from social media marketing.
