London, 14th August 2012 – affilinet, the specialist performance marketing company, today announced that Huggies® Pull Ups® is using its network to maximise the impact of parent company Kimberly-Clark’s first ever performance lead generation campaign. The campaign, part of wider promotion that is being spearheaded by Mindshare, is specifically aimed at positioning Huggies® Pull Ups® as the lead brand for potty training education.
Working with publishers that include MagicFreebies, Freemax and WRM, lead generation activity is primarily focused on email and integrated offers with partner sites. The goal is to motivate parents to sign up to a Potty Training Camp Pack at www.pottytraining.co.uk, which includes advice and fun accessories such as a progress chart, door hanger and coupons. affilinet has been targeted with generating 12,000 double opt-in leads. The campaign, which is due to run until at least October, provides Huggies® Pull Ups® with the ability to build a highly relevant and active community with which to carry out a targeted six week communication programme.
“Potty training can be a stressful time for parents and children alike. Having help, support and guidance during this time is critical. At Huggies® Pull Ups® we’ve pulled together expert articles, videos and advice from across the board aimed at helping parents answer questions they, or their children, may have. To promote the Potty Training Camp, we’ve looked to diversify and incorporate new channels into our marketing activity to help create a dynamic go-to forum. So far we’re very pleased with the results of the lead generation campaign. It’s driving good value for money and a good conversion rate, which can only contribute positively to the campaign’s overarching goal,” said Sarah Gamble, brand manager, Huggies® Pull Ups®.
“A key objective of the Huggies® Pull Ups® campaign is to inspire action amongst parents and get them interacting with the brand. We know that performance marketing is much more effective at both targeting highly relevant individuals and inspiring them to sign up, as opposed to display marketing, which was why we proposed this element of the campaign,” said Richard Lane, affiliate director, Mindshare.
“Lead generation is exceptionally effective in terms of exposure and return on investment it delivers. The campaign is very targeted in order to ensure that the people signing up to the Potty Training Camp Pack are highly relevant and therefore will engage with the Huggies® Pull Ups® brand and make the most of the information available as they potty train their toddlers,” said Gary Bicker, managing director, affilinet UK.
