Full social media management

Everything that you see on the Nordic social channels originates from the Lilac office with close collaboration from stockists, web development personnel and CRM professionals.

Paid advertising campaigns are implemented monthly, a mix of traffic and engagement ads that push people to interact with our posts, as well as navigate their way to the website to view our product range in more details or to locate their nearest stockist.

Through a combination of organic management and social media advertising, it was not long before the social channels began to attract attention from garden lovers, self-employed professionals and households wanting to create more space at home. Content output is a carefully crafted mix of product, promotional, competitions, gardening tips, customer testimonials, installations, home and garden inspiration, and funny relatable posts. In short, a social voice for the brand and all that it stands for.

Here is what Justin Williams, Director of Nordic Garden Buildings, has to say about recent developments:

“We made the decision to double our social media spend when lockdown started for our specialist consumer-facing division. YTD web traffic up 150%. Post lockdown it’s still tracking 105% up. Crucially this has translated into sales, we could not be happier with the service and the results”.
