Our Mother’s Day competition ran from Sunday 5 March until Monday 20 March. The prizes included a Zilver guardian angel necklace from Parsons Jewellers in The Galleries, flower and chocolates from M&S, a canvas printed with a photo of the winner’s choice from London Camera Exchange on The Horsefair, and a blow dry from Rush Hair, also on The Horsefair. The main competition post on Facebook reached 26,173 people (11,079 organically and 15,094 via Facebook boosting) and achieved 11% engagement including 399 likes and 184 shares. We received more than 350 entries. In addition there was a post on the Bristol Shopping Quarter website, two on Instagram, one on LinkedIn and daily mentions on Twitter. The winner, Hayley Hill-Franklin, was chosen at random and plans to share the prizes with her mum, step-mum and mum-in-law. As a result of this competition we gained 107 Facebook likes (taking us past the 7,000 mark) and 43 new subscribers to our monthly newsletter.
“As manager of an independent retailer on the edge of the BID area, I really appreciate the work the BID team does to help promote all its businesses, especially events like the annual Easter trail that encourage shoppers to explore the whole area.”
