L’ORÉAL Group activated local Brandheroes in Helsinki, Finland for their masculine grooming brand, House 99 by David Beckham. The goal was to create brand awareness and preference within the 20-35-year-old segment in Helsinki.
However, what it’s really all about, is supporting the local stores. Giving them life, heart and soul. Grit, personality and a strong scent of men’s comfort zone. And who doesn’t want to be part of that – and buy into that?
House 99 by David Beckham is a masculine grooming brand for the modern man that combines authentic barbershop culture with efficient skin and hair care. For this campaign, we identified 30 male grooming and lifestyle micro-influencers in Helsinki, Finland.
The 30 brandheroes shared two posts during the campaign. Firstly, they were invited to take part of a real exclusive barber consultation at a professional House 99 barber in Stockmann, Helsinki. Here, the influencers were treated with the products and received expert directions for grooming at home. They shared on Instagram with the hashtags #house99. Secondly, they were given a collection of hair and skincare products for a retail value of 150 EUR. After a few weeks, they shared another photo of themselves and their favorite products from the House 99 selection.
The 30 brandheroes were true micro-influencers with between 463 and 15.851 followers, and a combined following of 59.196 people. They posted in total 48 beautiful images, which had a reach of 118.392 and 14.421 likes and comments. This amounted to an average engagement rate of 19.0%, where the best engagement rate for one post were impressive 51,1%.
The micro-influencers not only created brand awareness, preference and high engagement within an untapped segment. They also produced awesome images, which House 99 has shared as authentic content across its channels.
