I worked on a six week YouTube marketing campaign for Dairymaster. The aim of the campaign was to increase impressions, subscriptions and shares on Youtube videos on the Dairymaster Youtube Channel. This was achieved through paid, earned and owned media. The campaign included: 

  • The introduction of a subscription button throughout videos to encourage people to sign up to the Dairymaster channel.
  • Engaging in YouTube's Fan Finder programme to raise awareness of the Dairymaster Youtube channel.
  • The introduction of "Suggested by Dairymaster", a pop up which displayed another of Dairymaster's videos at the end of each video.
  • Wrote titles and copy for YouTube videos 
  • Created and optimised YouTube True view video ads. 

The campaign resulted in a 186% increase in views and a 250%  increase in subscribers.
