Known for their colorful, instantly recognizable and influencer-favorite countertop appliances, Italian kitchen brand SMEG tasked 5W with garnering added recognition for its lesser-known lineup of large appliances, and with establishing the products as must-haves for cooking aficionados and design enthusiasts alike.
5W developed a curated network of fourteen mid-tier influencers with content spanning culinary, home, DIY and lifestyle, to activate brand-aligned content. The team specifically targeted influencers in the process of renovating or moving to tap into organic storytelling moments that would authentically resonate with followers, additionally identifying key seasonal moments to strategically pulse out content over the duration of the year. Each partner was contracted for 3-5 posts and sets of stories to develop a steady cadence of social buzz, inclusive of customized links, brand tags and key messaging. Throughout the program, 5W secured stunning before/after kitchen content showcasing SMEG's large appliances, deeply resonating with followers and serving as beautiful reusable content for the brand.
The program garnered over 300 pieces of content and over 38 million impressions, with content garnering an average engagement rate of over 6.5% and over 60,000 consumer clicks to key retailers.
