Booster son e-commerce via Twitter

During the Sales period, PLDM by Palladium (a subsidiary of the famous shoe brand Palladium), was seeking a way to boost their e-commerce via Twitter. They managed to do so, by designing a campaign based on the most typical contest type on Twitter !

Chosen campaign : Retweet and Follow

The most typical contest on Twitter : the organizer asks for the participants to retweet a specific tweet and to be/become follower to enter the contest.

How did it work:

Once it’s been set on Like a Bird Apps, the contest tweet had been published:


Each one of the participants had to retweet this message, or one of the “reminder” tweets directly sent from the platform:

At the end of the operation, a winner was drawn among the participants.

The interesting tip used in this campaign

On top of picking a winner, 100 participants have been drawn and received a DM containing a 10% promo code they could use on PLDM’s e-shop as a consolation prize.

These participants, once drawn, received a dedicated DM, customized and sent from Like a Bird Apps.

Main Results

This operation has been a massive success:

  • The core campaign leaded to an important visibility and an amazing follower recruitment:
    • 649 participants,
    • Number of followers increased by 22%
    • More than 450 000 Twitter accounts exposed to the campaign
  • Almost all of the 100 “consolation” winners sent a tweet / DM to thank the brand for this unexpected prize, increasing the customer loyalty :
