About Ladybird

Ladybird is a London-based publishing company within the Penguin Group. Ladybird publishes stories to help little ones learn, play and grow. From first-reads to fairy-tales, Ladybird makes growing up the best story ever.

The Challenge

Ladybird wanted to launch an Instagram account to highlight their new and refreshed Ladybird range for 0-7 year olds: beautiful, highly illustrated non-fiction; classic stories made contemporary; plus a selection of fun novelty titles for little ones, from touchy-feely baby books to slider or flap books that help young children discover the world around them.

The Approach

Empower’s approach was threefold:

  1. Launch and community building: Empower created and executed a launch and community building strategy for Ladybird, introducing the channel with regular feed posts, stories and paid content over a 2-month period, testing and adapting along the way.
  2. Photo shoot to create new images: Empower helped to organise a creative shoot featuring children across different age ranges, creating a comprehensive content library showcasing the latest titles in the Ladybird collection.
  3. Recommendations for the future: Ladybird briefed empower to adopt a Test and Learn mindset for this project. Empower identified several areas to give Ladybird more insight on, including post frequency, formats, hashtags and advertising recommendations for the future.

Use Facebook As Your Business Page: How to like, share or comment from your Facebook business page

Facebook used to make it really easy to like, comment and share as if you were acting as your Facebook business or organisation page.
But we’ve been getting lots of questions from clients recently who can no longer access or use this useful Facebook feature.

If you need to act as your page to engage with fans and other pages, Facebook has recently changed this feature. You may also want to see posts from other pages that your business follows, to make it easy to like, follow or comment on their posts, direct to your Facebook page.

Here’s the new way to address both of these challenges.
