How Qoozie’s increased their sales thanks to a Facebook campaign

Comparing Facebook posts and campaigns exactly one month apart, Qoozies, a healthy cafe in Chesterfield selling smoothies and light bites, saw an incredible boost in their sales and in their Facebook engagement; from 66 engagements (likes, comments, and shares) to 1,177 (an increase of 1,739%) in just a few days.

"Since working with Maybe* we’ve sold more milkshakes than ever before during the same time period. It’s exciting to see our social media efforts turn into footfall and sales."

How they did it

Using insights from the Maybe* platform, the Qoozie’s post was able to be better targeted through Facebook advertising, appealing to local people’s interests to help drive footfall.

The content of the post was also influenced by the language people were using in their posts on social media to talk about Qoozies. Words like “mum” “food” and “treat” helped create and target a post that spoke to people’s interest in sharing food and treats together.

By asking people to comment on who they would share a Qoozie’s meal with, 671 detailed comments were gathered in 48 hours.
