The story behind your campaign
Inspiration and motivation

The inspiration for the campaign came from ChinaTown’s deep commitment to providing affordable, high-quality products to its customers. The company saw an opportunity to stand out as the go-to destination for Party Supplies and showcase the wide range of party supplies available at its stores. In particular, We want to emphasise the unique value proposition of its party shops, which offer a one-stop-shop for all party supplies at unbeatable prices.

The motivation behind the campaign was to help China Town reach a wider audience and position itself as the go-to destination for party supplies in Cape Town. By leveraging the power of social media and digital marketing, We hope to engage with consumers who might not be aware of its stores and highlight the unique value proposition of its products.

To inform the campaign strategy, We used a variety of fun and exciting visuals, ensuring that it would resonate with the target audience and drive the desired action.

By showcasing the thought and care that went into developing the campaign, China Town can build trust and credibility with its target audience and position itself as a reliable and innovative retailer, specifically with this ca

One of the main challenges that the campaign faced was the competitive landscape in Cape Town’s retail market. There are a number of established party supply retailers in the area, and we need to find a way to differentiate ourselves and stand out from the competition.

Another challenge was the limited budget available for the campaign. While we wanted to create a bold and impactful campaign, it needed to do so within a relatively small budget. This required careful planning and creative thinking to maximise the impact of the campaign while minimising costs.

A further challenge was the need to develop a campaign that would resonate with a diverse target audience. China Town’s party shops cater to a wide range of customers, from families planning birthday parties to event planners organising large-scale events. The campaign needs to speak to all of these audiences in a way that felt authentic and relevant.

The creative concept for the campaign is centred around the idea of China Town being the go-to destination for all your party supply needs. This concept is designed to tap into the aspirational nature of party planning and position China Town’s party shops as the ultimate destination for anyone looking to create an unforgettable event.

The campaign will be spread out on social media Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok, with each platform used to reinforce the core creative concept and drive engagement with the campaign.

To bring the concept to life, the campaign features a variety of engaging and interactive content.

The creative execution of the campaign is designed to be visually striking and attention-grabbing, using bold colours, playful imagery, and eye-catching products and have a consistent look and feel across all platforms.

Relevant Hashtags #

The Main Hashtag – #CTPartyTime

The aim of a single campaign is to have one main hashtag that becomes the call to action for people to follow and see user-generated content or updates from the brand.

After exploring numerous options I came up with #CTPartyTime

A couple of reasons for selecting this hashtag.

1. This is a completely unique #hashtag that has never been used before so we can take ownership of this hashtag, meaning any social media posts we post will be seen by anyone following this hashtag.

2. For competitions people would need to use this hashtag when they post or share or enter the competition. Since it is unique it will be easy and a pleasure to find all the #CTPartyTime hashtags.

3. The hashtag is simple and easy to remember. Making a complicated hashtag is not a good idea and this one is easy to type and enter in.

4. The hashtag happens to also have a double meaning. The CT in #CTPartyTime could also be interpreted as Cape Town and not only China Town. This extra leverage could only benefit the spreading of the hashtag. Someone could see a friend posting #CTPartyTime and assume it is Cape Town Party Time and follow on. They will of course see and find out it is China Town. This is in no way a form of trickery it is happenstance and leverage.

The Secondary Hashtags

For FB, Instagram and TikTok we will add additional hashtags at the end of the bottom.

Right at the end so as to form the function of being found but not overshadow our main hashtag #CTPartyTime

Some ideas for additional hashtags to be used.

#capetown – 13,5 million posts under this one.
#capetownsouthafrica – 808k posts under this one.
#capetownliving – 305k posts under this one.
#party – 189 million posts under this one.
#partyideas – 3.9 million posts under this one.
##chinatownct – 3000 posts under this one. I think this one is worth taking ownership of from now on unless you have one I don’t know about.

I don’t believe in using hasthtags people are not going to search for.
For example if you want to use ones like
#chinatowpartysupplies – no one has or will ever search this hashtag and of course too long
#chinatowparty – no one has ever used this.

Hence my strategy is always to take ownership of one unique hashtag per campaign and for competitions i.e. #CTPartyTime
Then use secondary popular and trending hashtags that people will actually be using.

Execution of Videos

The Youtube videos below are 16:9 / Horizontal Video so are ideal for Youtube and FB.

Please note videos and songs are not copyrighted and can be used without an issue.

There are 2 options for you to view.

They are all private links so no one on youtube can access it.

FB and YouTube option 1

FB and YouTube option 2

 

 

These are the Insta and TikTok Videos.

I feel that since TikTok and Insta have perfectly identical Vertical versions they are ideal to be duplicated on both platforms.

Instagram Reel is also the same vertical video alignment.

I think if you create Branded content like this you can put the one main brand video on both Insta and TikTok.

When you create more off-the-cuff videos they can be put directly into Insta and TikTok.

TikTok and Insta have their own unique built-in effects and popular music you can use.

If you are doing a brand video like this is can be duplicated on both platforms but when you create off-the-cuff, less crafted and edited but more raw and organic video with TikTok or Instagram in real time then you can create unique content for TikTok and Instagram.

Please note that Youtube is just a preview which is why it is showing like it is below, when uploaded on TikTok and Insta it will be perfectly aligned to the specific platforms.
