Challenge

 A 100-yen concept store called Oomomo opened for business in West Edmonton Mall in the summer of 2017. While 100-yen concept stores are extremely popular in Japan, they are not as well known in Canada.

Oomomo came to our firm wanting to grow their brand awareness in the Edmonton area.

What did we do? 

I served as both the Account Manager and the Content Marketing Specialist on this account. Teamed up with the Analytics Specialist at our firm, we put together a marketing plan for Oomomo that detailed the following:

  • Competitive analysis
  • Content strategy
    • Campaign overview
    • Photography direction
    • Brand voice
    • Target audiences
    • Editorial calendar

Our team decided to go with a “kitchenware campaign” after the client informed us that their unique Japanese kitchenware attracted many customers.

We spent two months building out strategy, as well as revamping their old website, before fully launching a social media campaign, which included:

  • 2 Facebook posts per week
  • 2 Instagram posts per week
  • 2 Pinterests posts per week
  • 1-2 blogs per month
  • Monthly e-newsletter
  • Campaign-specific photography

Social Media Content

All of the social content, blogs and e-newsletters were created by me.

Design Pieces

While we had a graphic designer at our firm who designed much of the pieces for this client, I created a few design pieces for them myself as well.
