Our Approach

We created and implemented a thoughtful, intentional social strategy and began monthly management of the brand’s consumer-facing social accounts.

Instagram Engagement Growth

As a product-driven emerging brand in the wedding space, Joy is on a mission to help engaged couples experience wedding planning the way it should be—intuitive, thoughtful, and personal. While the brand's product, tools, and blog provided value to its couples, Joy's social felt like an afterthought.

We came on when Joy had just 2,000 followers. We created a strategy that would grow with the brand, adjusting it often as we tested new content, growth techniques, media, and narratives.

In the first year with Joy, we: 

  • Maintained a monthly Instagram engagement rate 4x that of Joy’s top-performing competitor
  • Grew Pinterest audience from 300 to 850k+ monthly viewers
  • Produced product photos shared by top industry media outlets, partners and blogs
  • Pivoted our content strategy to stay relevant during the pandemic, maintaining a steady 20% Month-Over-Month growth while competitors were in the negative

Our Campaign

Sparking Joy for the Modern Couple

We designed Joy's social platforms to be the go-to source for wedding ideas, tips, and inspiration. By partnering with micro-influencers and organizing + executing multiple content shoots, we built an asset bank of evergreen content to use for owned, earned, and paid media. While we published a high volume of content (4+ posts per day on Instagram alone!), everything posted was thoughtfully planned to showcase a variety of wedding, budgets, styles, and couples, staying true to the brand's mission to celebrate love in all its forms.
