Summary of benefits

By partnering with digital marketing specialists, Comms Axis, OkoBay experienced excellent growth in community size and especially in social engagements. They were able to tap into the growing popularity of, and interest in, coconut, coconut oil and coconut water to get on the radars of health conscious influencers and bloggers to further amplify their message.

This ensured that community growth and engagement were targeted and highly relevant for the OkoBay brand.

  1. Stephen Bray Says:

    I like this story, and especially the .PDF report, but I guess as with all marketing information the ultimate statistic isn’t retweets, clicks, or views, but rather how much more cash a campaign generated.

    I’m curious to know how ComsAxis/OkayBay measured this, and if the findings are also positive?

    • Dan Purvis Says:

      Thanks Stephen – it was a great project campaign for us to work on, and OkoBay were a great client to work with too. And you’re right…vanity metrics don’t mean too much; engagement is key, as well as “selling stuff” (in this case, entice their target audience to visit stores selling their Coconut Water Ice product and then to influence their purchasing decision to actually buy it).

      The ultimate sales metrics can’t be revealed, as I’m sure you’d understand, but suffice it to say that they hit their sales targets – this was their goal at the onset and we helped them achieve this. They are also now on sale in Sainsbury’s 🙂

      Love your website by the way – incredibly rich in visual content (which is your business, after all).
