Describe the objective of the promotion.
14 February, Valentine’s Day. The day most men consistently forget to buy flowers for their loved ones. Online flower delivery shop wanted to do something about that.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation.
How to get men to remember to buy flowers this year?
By bringing in a very persuasive promo team.

On 12 February, we visited shopping malls all over Amsterdam with a couple of very intimidating looking men as our promo team. Whenever the team spotted a couple, they walked up to them and got them to stop. Then they simply handed the man a flyer from along with a few kind words of advice:
'Valentine’s Day is only 2 days away. Don’t forget it.'

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service.
The tagline of is 'Don’t forget'. So we wanted to make clear that men should remember to buy flowers for their loved ones this Valentine’s Day. Approaching men personally was the best way to get our message across. We took our Persuasive Promo Team and we visited multiple shopping malls to hand out flyers to couples. With their intimidating approach, the message 'Don’t forget to buy flowers at' was made extra clear to the approached men.

Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results.
The men that were approached definitely remembered to buy flowers for their loved ones this year. Over 900 bouquets were ordered online in the 2 days before Valentine’s Day, a doubling of sales compared to last year.
