Listen to the spotlight ad for Sewerby Promo Ad on Greatest Hits Radio

“Working with the established radio brands Viking FM and Greatest Hits Yorkshire Coast as our media partners for the first Sewerby Winter Woodland was a great opportunity for us. We used the partnership two bursts initially when the event went on sale, seeing the traffic to the website increase to 2,000 page views per day at its peak. The live talk ups on Viking building up to a ticket giveaway, online competition with Greatest Hits Yorkshire Coast both worked well.
On the second advertising burst we sold 5,000 tickets in a month and the airtime drove visitors to our website. I thought the script writing was brilliant as it encapsulated the magical feel of the event. We even used the team to write and record audio which we used with video of the event. We sold out 12,000 tickets in the first year event which was huge achievement, and we believe that our partnership with Viking and Greatest Hits made a big impact on sales for the event.”
