Summer Marketing Recap

Updated: Jul 31

This spring, FWA has been involved in both an Ibotta marketing campaign and a social media campaign through Facebook and Instagram. We are hopeful that through our campaign efforts, consumers will be made more aware of the Florida watermelon industry.


Key Ibotta Marketing Takeaways

  1. The native media sponsorship had 299,940 completed engagements, this sponsorship led to 96,080 influenced purchases of watermelons.

  2. Ran an Any Brand Watermelons campaign in 2020 coinciding with the watermelon season, but started the campaign a few weeks earlier to create more awareness.

  3. Based on past purchase history on Ibotta, target sponsored media to be delivered only to segments who are light/new purchasers of watermelons. As we track follow-on purchase habits, this will show if a user successfully influenced to purchase watermelons.
