The Client

What The Brand Needed

Nespresso approached us to help them create awareness around their different ranges of coffee, and to assist in changing the perception around coffee as a whole. Influencers were brought on as a conduit for delivering the message of the brand, highlighting how Nespresso coffee fits into their everyday lives, while using their platforms to showcase the product and range.



The campaign consisted of a series social posts across Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, as well as blog posts from a total of 9 influencers: Maps Maponyane, Nkululeko Magoba, the Tech Girl blog, the Pixel Vulture blog, Jo-Ann Strauss, Stacey Holland, Luthando Shosha, Sam Linsell and Baking Ginger blog.

The campaign officially kicked off on the 21st November 2016 and ran until the 23rd December 2016.

Each influencer was designated a certain number of social posts. This distribution of content on their social channels was based on their follower size on each platform, to ensure that the most OTS (opportunity to see) would be available.
