Keys to success
Encourage engagement with polls
Border Biscuits found that polls are a great way to create engagement with a wide audience. People can vote with a quick click, but polls also lead to Retweets and often result in wider discussion. A poll about a favourite type of biscuit, for example, led to a wide range of opinions and expanded conversations, which the Border Biscuits team also engaged in.
Border Biscuits ran specially designed posts for events such as Valentine’s Day, Christmas, and Mother’s Day. This helped the brand to join in on relevant, timely conversations and spread further awareness of their business.
