The best marketing ideas for Mother’s Day
If you’re looking for the best marketing ideas for Mother’s Day you’re in the right place! Mother’s Day is an excellent opportunity to launch marketing campaigns full of tenderness to please all the mums of your community, interact with them and collect first- and zero-party data. So it’s time to be inspired by 12 marketing ideas for Mother’s Day 🤩
Let’s start with 9 marketing ideas for Mother’s Day using our standard formats
We’ve divided our interactive campaign ideas between our standard formats (quiz, gift guide, swiper, etc.) and our advanced formats (obstacle run, swap & match, etc.) so you can choose what suits you best!
1. Personality test: what kind of mother will you be?
With this personality test, let future mothers discover which type of mother they will be! This format allows you to find out more about your audience: their preferences, their taste, etc. You can, of course, fully customise the personality test, so let your imagination run wild.
To increase your visibility and attract more customers, let participants share their profiles on social media with a personalised message, which you’ll have configured in advance.
2. Poll: #BestMumEver
Choose the answer formats that suit you (checkboxes, dropdown lists, click on image etc.) and create your poll for Mother’s Day to engage your audience.
In this campaign idea, participants must vote for the world’s best mum. Don’t worry, we know that your mum is the best of all time 👑
And don’t forget to choose personalised Mother’s Day images to stand out!
3. Swiper test: the perfect Mother’s Day gift!
What could be better than receiving a gift based on your personality and desires? Create a special swiper personality test to let mothers choose what they want to receive for Mother’s Day and send the information to their children (clever, right!?).
How does it work? Like Tinder, participants need to swipe left or right to answer questions. It’s an excellent way to get to know your audience better!
4. Guide: make your mother’s taste buds dream
Sometimes it’s hard to know what our mum wants for Mother’s Day. Let alone know what to cook for her on this special occasion! That’s why we’ve created a food guide that generates relevant suggestions based on each mum’s tastes!
Take inspiration from this interactive idea by highlighting your products and adding a call-to-action so that participants can purchase from you 😉
5. Swiper quiz: things mums do
For this interactive campaign, refer to all the actions mums are used to doing: shouting your name across the house, doing spring cleaning and when guests arrive saying “don’t mind the mess”, etc.
Use the popular Tinder format to create a swiper quiz. Participants have to swipe left or right to say whether their mother is indeed like that or not. This campaign idea is perfect to engage with your audience and make them realise how amazing mums are.
6. Quiz: Mother’s Day’s labyrinth
We’ve imagined a labyrinth quiz to take mothers to the spa (because they really deserve it 😉). To create this campaign, we’ve used the quiz format: it’s easy to set up and offers many different question possibilities. We then added a labyrinth image and three answer buttons and voilà!
7. Escape game: Catherine’s morning routine
For this interactive campaign, we created a quiz based on the escape game format meaning participants need to answer correctly to go to the next question. Sounds fun, right?
As we all know, mornings can be tricky 🤯 So, in this game participants must solve riddles to help Catherine to get to work on time! The game directly shows the result of the answers to allow participants to try their luck again before moving on to the next question.
Want to help Catherine to get ready for work? Let’s go 🔽
- It’s time to prepare her bag! Find the 5 objects she must remember!
- Where are Catherine’s children? They’re hiding again to avoid going to school…
- Which way should Catherine go to avoid traffic jams and roadworks?
- The kids are at school, it’s time to get to work! What’s the street name of her office that she needs to put in the GPS?
