Lo-Dough Campaign

Lo-Dough - the low calorie bread alternative - had huge success in 2020, selling out multiple times during the first lockdown as well as launching their brand new Miracle Cake Bar.

The Brief

To cement the Lo-Dough brand as the Halo Top of the pizza world and showcase the brand to the mass market, whilst simultaneously generating exposure of the core Lo-Dough products through traditional media & social media influencers and launching the new Miracle Cake Bars.

Our Response

We began the campaign by getting the whole Lo-Dough range into as many media hands as possible. We created a launch press release to showcase the revolutionary new low-calorie brand on the block, which resulted in interest from some of the UK’s top media titles like Daily Mail and Good Housekeeping, as well as a stand-alone article in the Daily Star. We took a strategic approach by reaching out to our already extensive media list of key contacts, strengthening our relationship through sampling and frequent updates on Lo-Dough, including sneak previews of the new Lo-Dough Miracle Cake Bars.

We reached out to key health and fitness influencers and celebrities for free of charge gifting opportunities throughout the campaign, and created custom mailers which included branded packaging and the whole range of Lo-Dough products.

Throughout the campaign we devised creative ways to reach media including tapping into national days, such as Halloween, which helped us to get the brand featured in a Pumpkin Spiced Brownie piece that was run by the Daily Express.
