Help Moms Get Some ZZZs:

  • Identified mommy bloggers as the key target for this product launch, as they fit the requirement of female decision makers.
  • If they could only sleep on it… SA knew that the Sleep Innovations’ Novaform Gel Mattress Topper was an experiential product, and the team needed mommy bloggers to literally “sleep on it” to secure positive reviews by female influencers.
  • Executed a campaign that complied with FTC regulations while sampling a Queen-sized mattress topper to selected, influential mommy bloggers.
  • Identified a group of top mommy bloggers who were willing to review products they truly believed in, and sent the Novaform Gel Mattress Topper to each mom to test out – with the hope they could catch some quality shut-eye!
  • Identified and secured an opportunity with a Valentine’s Day review and giveaway event with 12 influential mommy bloggers for the Novaform Gel Mattress Topper.
  • In addition to providing products for each blogger to review, SA also provided toppers for each reviewer to give away to their followers.
  • Visitors to each of the twelve blogs commented on the bloggers’ review posts one or more times for chances to win the Novaform Gel Mattress Topper, facilitating engagement and conversation in the comment threads.
