Harry & David Engages Streamers with Strategic Mother’s Day Campaign   

Since 1934, Harry & David has been America’s premier choice for gourmet gifts - from premium gift baskets to delicious baked goods and fresh fruit. As the brand prepared for the busy Mother’s Day holiday in 2021, it sought to engage customers in a campaign focused on the many mother figures in our lives and the significant role they all play – and, of course, how Harry & David can help them celebrate 

Seeing an opportunity to connect with streamers during the busy Mother’s Day season, the brand decided to launch a video series, utilizing a strategic approach that featured TV streaming as an important component of its overall Mother’s Day marketing campaign. With a focus on meeting the right audience at the right time, Harry & David enlisted the help of Roku as a way to target key audiences on the streaming platform.  

Delivering Content and Building Brand Affinity with Curated Playlists  

With a focus on engaging customers ahead of the important Mother’s Day holidayHarry & David worked with Roku to build a Brand Experience that offered viewers free content via curated playlists. A brand experience is a customized content hub that directs key audiences to ad-supported, brand-aligned content that users are excited to watch.  

The Harry & David Brand Experience incorporated customized playlists featuring Mother’s Day videos that built awareness for Harry & David and its wide selection of products for this special day  

After streamers engaged with the curated playlists, the brand was able to stay top-of-mind for consumers with the targeted use of display ads. This gave Harry & David another opportunity to connect with consumers ahead of the holiday.    

A Mother’s Day Win 

With the help of Roku, Harry & David was able to engage consumers, increase exposure to the brand, and showcase its expansive selection of products including gourmet prepared meals, decadent desserts, and award-winning wine. 

By combining web and TV streaming, and offering free curated content with a Brand Experience, Harry & David was able to reach streamers across the country as part of its strategic Mother’s Day campaign.
