Ahead of the new I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here! … series hitting screens, leading UK toy wholesaler TOBAR challenged us to drive awareness and engagement for its I’m a Celebrity official Bush Grub range with tweens aged 9-13.
We used our Influencer Impact Score, a proprietary formula that helps measure the potential impact of an influencer, to identify key YouTubers for our target age bracket. Cross-channel partnerships were negotiated with YouTube favourites, Ruby Rube and Dom Vlogs. Our team then worked with the influencers to create engaging Bush Tucker Challenge videos with their friends. Who would end up eating the bugs? SEO keyword research informed the titles and descriptions for maximum search visibility.
Though viewers were divided over whether the content was horrible or hilarious, engagement went through the roof and many were keen to try it for themselves.
The campaign achieved a cost of 4p per engagement. We achieved 248k organic video views, with 2,000+ comments from excited viewers keen to give it a go:
We even inspired copycat videos from other tween YouTubers. Dom Vlogs chose it as his homepage video six months after upload as it was so entertaining for his subscribers.
