Summer Payback October Winner!

We are steaming ahead with production during this busy season!

Thank you to everyone for supporting the Summer Payback campaign. We recently announced the October winner, who purchased their Daisy Pool Cover from Clark Rubber in Cannington, WA.

Congratulations to Ruth who has had her pool for 30 years, and her trusty WinterKleen is still going but Ruth wanted to enjoy warmer water so she could enjoy her pool for more of the year. Erin from Clark Rubber helped her decide on a solar cover. Funnily enough, Erin chased after Ruth when she left to remind her to register her warranty to go in the running to win her purchase back.

Ruth said, “I’m an old fart and don’t know the first thing about technology but from what I can remember the process was very easy to enter, and now look – I won!”

Congratulations again to Ruth, we hope you enjoy your extended swimming season with your new Daisy Pool Cover.

The Summer Payback campaign will run until the end of February 2019, with four more monthly winners to be announced!

Daisy Summer Pay Back

Daisy Pool Covers have launched their Summer 2019 Campaign: Summer Pay Back.

This campaign is an eye-catching, easy to implement way to drive consumers, and ultimately sales, to your stores during the Spring/Summer period.

Customers who purchase a Daisy Pool Cover from September 2018 to February 2019 will go in the draw to win their purchase back once they have registered their warranty, to the value of $1,000.

The mechanics of this promotion are as follows:

  • Consumer purchases a Daisy Pool Cover
  • They go to daisypoolcover.com.au/payback
  • They enter their name and email on this page to be taken to the Daisy Register Warranty Page
  • One National winner drawn each month (six winners total)

Enclosed is a pad of A5 leaflets to hand out to consumers when they purchase a Daisy cover from you.

This campaign is being supported across the country by digital marketing including social media and display advertising.

Thank you for supporting this summer promotion.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us for any further information.

White and Brittle – When a Pool Cover has had its Day

Why has the pool cover gone white and brittle? This is an image of an extreme example of a pool cover that has been damaged by chlorine that has gone white and brittle. It will even start to disintegrate when it reaches the end of its life span. Daisy’s Ultradome technology helps it kick on but what’s next?

See the cover pictured? It has been so badly bleached with chlorine that it has gone almost completely white!

Trademarked technology working to the end

Daisy’s trademarked Ultradome technology ensures that there are not weak points if properly installed and used. Without any weak points, the Daisy Ultradome wears out evenly so the cover continues to be effective, even in situations like this when the cover has been drastically over chlorinated.

Notice how the bubbles on the underside of the pool cover have not ‘popped’ out the base of the bubble leaving tell-tale little disk’s in the pool? With the trademarked technology, they have worn away evenly giving it the longest possible usable life.

Eventually however, all pool covers will have to be replaced irrespective of Daisy’s quality. For further information, please contact us.

SPASA & Daisy – Working for the Pool Industry

Daisy is a proud supporter and member of the Swimming Pool and Spa Association (SPASA); a body committed to improving and protecting the welfare of the entire swimming pool & spa industry.

Years of research and experience have been the foundation of our market leadership in Australia, supported by our accreditations and awards. Being a part of the SPASA means that Daisy is accredited to help train, educate and promote through the industry and the consumer community.

One example of how we do this is by attending the Pool & Spa Expos. In early February, we attended the SPASA Pool & Spa Expo in Melbourne providing us with the opportunity to meet and share with our Daisy network of retailers our latest products, provide tips and help in all areas including challenging installs and assisting with some tricky quotes too.

Daisy will be attending the SPASA Pool and Spa Expos in Sydney in March and Brisbane in May. Come over and say hi!

SHARE YOUR BRAG!

From unusual installs, to spectacular backyards, Daisy Experts have covered a lot of ground around Australia showcasing challenging, interesting and even unusual installs of pool covers and rollers.

The Daisy Gallery shares a vast variety of past installs in both commercial and domestic pools, with all sorts of our pool covers, WinterKleens and rollers including End Mounts, Daisy Power and the Under Bench Rollers. We have even seen an AGA roller on one end over an embankment with a standard ST on the other end!

Shared inspiration

We love to showcase all the different installations to show the diversity of Daisy and in turn, provide inspiration to help you sell more.

From super thin lap pools, weird shaped pools, bridges built over pools, two covers and rollers on one pool, intricately designed pools, along with beautiful locations and more… share your installs and inspire!

IT’S TIME TO BRAG!

Take a photo of your installs and share! Send it to us we’ll share it on Instagram and Facebook, as well as place it in our Daisy Gallery.

Alternatively, post your photos on our Facebook page, tag us on Instagram or email us @ hello@daisypoolcovers.com.au.  We love seeing your work – KEEP BRAGGING!

#BestPhotoBomb Challenge Produces Winning Results

What a summer! It really hotted up with another Daisy Challenge concluding on Valentine’s Day. .. and the love was really shared!

Yet again, the summer campaign in #BestPhotoBomb proved to be a MEGA BOOM with the January – February submissions steaming up with 19 videos and photos submitted.

The winner for the final month was Jason Ferguson and his son Zac from Perth, WA. Zac did so many things right in his video submission on Instagram – with the leap, thumbs up, dab and twist he had a lot going on! It was creative with a twist, and right on with our own Daisy roller in the background!

Our MD, Derek Prince was on hand to present Jason and Zac with the amazing prizes, a UE MegaBoom speaker (which Zac took ownership of immediately!) and $500 to spend at Pool & Spa Mart Bull Creek.

Jason first saw the Daisy Challenge on Facebook and on a sweltering Perth Australia Day, Zac and his dad decided to give it a go. They nailed the video first shot and posted to Instagram where it had over 700 views and comments to share the love! 

A winning summer!
This summer’s challenge proved a real winner again! The competition page drew over 3,000 visits over the 3.5 months and resulted in multiple product enquiries (passed on to our retailers). Perhaps most importantly it allowed thousands of pool owners to view and engage with our brand through social media – another way Daisy is helping you sell more!

We had unprecedented retailer support this year with hundreds of shares from our Daisy Experts – creating a win-win promotion and boosting sales potential even further. Pool & Spa Mart Bull Creek owner, Jacqui Cobanov-Burke has started actively promoting her business through social media in the past few months and has seen a significant increase in enquiries and sales. She said “the Daisy campaign was great to get involved with as all the promotion was done by Daisy. It was easy to flow that through to our social networks as Daisy has a fantastic product”. Jacqui continued “we really noticed the difference in Daisy sales when we were actively promoting them”.

The final result! …

Thousands of LIKES, SHARES and even more VIEWS! Year on year, we build greater engagement and win lots of Daisy fans and this summer, we were even more popular with 42 photo and video entries submitted. Check them all out at https://daisypoolcovers.com.au/bestphotobomb-entries.

Stay tuned in our next edition for more tips on how to make Social Media sell for you.

Daisy’s High Social Standing

Daisy has you covered 24/7 with a social influence on most major platforms. Connect with us on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Google Plus and even watch our ‘how-to’ videos on YouTube.

You too can leverage the power of social media to build greater awareness for your store and the products you sell. Here’s some handy tips:

  1. Choose the right social media platform that will resonate and be relevant to your customer. Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest are great for audiences sharing images of family fun or viewing and saving images of home design ideas.
  2. It’s all about content! Make sure you post relevant content that they are interested in. Mix it up with tips on pool maintenance and handy information on some of the products you sell. Add some promotional and sales incentives and get them to share these with their friends. You’ll soon find that you’ll start to grow your fan base.
  3. Keep it going. Make sure you keep your posts up on a regular basis. Try to strike that balance of keeping your brand top-of-mind whilst not being too annoying and blocking up their news feed. We find twice a week works for us.
  4. Risk management. You will need to ensure that you set your company page privacy settings to suit your business. Check out the age group, block obscenities and maybe allow nothing to go up on your wall unless you’ve approved it.
  5. If someone does post a comment or ask questions, treat them as it they’re actually talking to you personally. Answer them! Take negative comments offline by addressing their concerns by private messaging but do acknowledge this openly eg thank you for your concern. Feedback is important to us. We’ll be in touch soon by private message.
  6. Grow your base. Share our posts to create another great source of content for your own pages!

Hope this helps as a starting point.
