Liverpool One
Media Agency Group worked with us to restructure our Marketing Plans and communicationfor 2018/19, with a new strategy than what we have used over the past 10 years. The core approach was to be audience focused, to ensure the messages were efficient to different audiences. This enabled us to drive shoppers to Liverpool ONE in Q3 to experience the centre and actively return for Q4/Christmas period; a different approach than previous years where the core driver was Q4. Media Agency Group provided a blended marketing campaign, with traditional and digital strategically planned to our audiences and core location catchments in the North West for our Q3 Let Us Entertain You campaign. Our KPIs where to drive more people to the Liverpool ONE site and drive interaction and engagement - The results were positivewith the website performance all increasing versus Summer 2017, with high engagement and low bounce rates. The overall goal conversion was also up 34%.
