Rijksmuseum Muiderslot is one of the oldest and best kept castles in The Netherlands. The castle looks like how any kid would draw it: four towers, battlements, a moat and a drawbridge. The Muiderslot is a vivacious place where visitors come year round to enjoy the museum, castle gardens, events, workshops, concerts and theatre performances.
There is a big group of ‘families with young children’ that live within 40 kilometres of the castle but have not visited the Muiderslot yet. The goal was to reach this group and activate it.
To reach the goals we implemented a multi-channel campaign through Facebook and Instagram. Both platforms were used in different ways. The campaign period was before and during school holidays. The castle organises many workshops and events around this time.
From mid-July to the start of September 2019 we ran a campaign on Facebook and Instagram. The campaign was aimed at ‘families with young children’ and lookalike audiences (of website visitors and Facebook page likes) and resulted in a CTR of 4.42%. This is far better than the benchmark of 1%.
An additional way to reach the target audience, was the Instameet. A group of 23 influencers was invited to take photos in, on and around the castle. The influencers were selected based on interest in museums and had 60,376 followers in total.
The influencers posted 27 posts, accompanied by the hashtag #muiderslotmeet. Some of these posts consisted of carousels (multiple images). These 27 posts received 6,225 likes (10.3% of all followers) and 701 comments (1.16% of all followers). Muiderslot had consent to post these images with credits to the photographers.
During the Christmas holidays a prettysocial media campaign was implemented to bring attention to Rijksmuseum Muiderslot. To thematically match this season of twinkle lights and cosiness, the Facebook publisher ‘Seasons’ was chosen. The campaign realised a CTR of 5.19% and a unique reach of 97,667 people.
“Online marketing is complex, especially for a small organisation like ours where we have to do so many things at the same time. Therefore it’s important to have a knowledgeable and trustworthy agency. New Sales Company unburdens us in many ways and that is amazing. A small and agile agency, short lines of communication, personal contact and always quick to respond to our – sometimes probably silly – questions.”
