Zahlia Wins the DaisyDab Competition, alongside 3 other monthly winners

Zahlia Hartley from the Sunshine Coast has won the 2017-18 Daisy DAB challenge winning an iPhone 8 (her choice!). Concluding on Valentine’s Day, it was a hard fought challenge, with Zahlia taking out the competition with 853 votes over summer!

More about the Challenge

For the summer of 2017/2018, Daisy launched the Daisy Dab Challenge! There were three simple steps… All you needed to do to enter was to do a DAB by the pool, submit your entry and ‘Share the Love’ on a voting platform.

The competition was hard fought with entrants sending in their most creative entries to be in to win monthly prizes of a Parrot Drone and $200 worth of pool supplies. However to win the grand prize of an iPhone 8 or Galaxy 8 it was all about who had the highest number of votes!

How Zahlia won

Zahlia had found out about the competition from her mum who used to work at a pool shop in Buderim. Zahlia’s family still go there for their pool supplies, and on a recent visit they learned about the Daisy Challenge through some point of sale material and encouraged Zahlia to enter the.

Zahlia’s creativity sparked into action, and she had the idea to create a video at her little sister’s birthday party! Synchronised DAB’ing was born!

And the deal? Zahlia had a pact with her younger sister that if she won, her sister would get her old phone… win-win!

From the moment she submitted her entry, Zahlia, her sister, and their family constantly ‘Shared the Love’ and worked with their networks to accumulate an enormous 853 votes in total! Great work!

The competition overall was a tough one, with a few strong contenders. Zahlia said that she was “so happy that all of her hard work and sharing so much actually paid off!”

Three worthy monthly winners

The Challenge attracted many creative entries – three of which were rewarded with brand new Drones and spending money!

The three monthly winners were:

  1. November 2017: Jess from NSW
  2. December 2017: Troy from QLD
  3. January – mid-February 2018: Brie from NSW

Congratulations everyone. Enjoy your new iPhone8, drones and spending money!

Jess went above and beyond submitting multiple very creative entries and getting over 140 votes too for her efforts. At the presentation of her prizes at Splash’s, Jess said that she had a heap of fun with this because she loved photography and that our Daisy challenges are a great avenue to explore more photography. It gave her the challenge to set up her photos and videos.

Jess’s dad, John, said that she had a lot of fun and put a lot of time and effort into the entries so great for her to win a prize from our local pool shop.

Andrew Clubb from Splash’s Pools Tuggerah said “how good is Jess winning a Daisy challenge twice! What are the chances! Regular customers have had a heap of fun with the photos. Thanks Daisy for having a challenge that helps people have fun around a pool…because that is what pools are all about, fun!”

Are you ready to get social?

With your customers of course!

We mean creating greater reach and online engagement with your customers which will lead to more direct sales for you, and for Daisy. With the huge success of the 2014/ 15 Daisy #bestsplashchallenge, we have another exciting new summer campaign on its way…

We have designed a cool and interactive 2015/ 16 summer campaign designed to interact with our customers and to help push them right into your shop so you can be social.

With great prizes and numerous tangible reasons to deal with you, we are looking forward to a truly amazing Aussie summer season… Watch this space…

Remember how we did last summer? The #bestsplashchallenge did well. We built an engaged audience around fun in the backyard pool, encouraging and doing what we all do… jump in and make a splash! You were involved and your support was excellent; many happy with us promoting their shop to their customers through a non-standard promotional medium.

The number of entrants over the three-month campaign exceeded our expectations, the exposure of the challenge to consumers was also beyond our expectations, and the interaction with our consumers was absolutely fantastic.

View here for a snapshot of our achievements last summer.

Creative campaign helps build retailer confidence

Pool industry’s creative campaign made a splash helping build retailer confidence against current trends

In the pool leisure industry, businesses are not selling products like chlorine, pumps or pool covers… they are selling lifestyle, fun and enjoyment in their customers’ back yard. When over two thirds of Australians make their buying decisions using the internet, businesses like Daisy need to more than ever be able to influence buying decisions online, as well as offline. This requires an integrated strategy using all media as well as a relevant campaign to engage the target audience.

According to Daisy Pool Covers and Rollers Managing Director Derek Prince, Daisy’s 2014/15 summer campaign #bestsplashchallenge, which officially closed at the end of January with the Grand Prize winner announced this week, tackled this head on.

“The #bestsplashchallenge utilised a pull and push strategy and engaged end customers as well as our retail channel. We built an online audience around fun in the backyard pool by encouraging people to do what we all do… jump in and make a splash! Our customers were reached through the social media Challenge to create the best splash ever and win by getting the most likes on Facebook or Instagram,” Derek said.

Daisy also supported retailers through in-store point of sale material and driving sales to their store through social media. Many retailers got involved promoting the Challenge as well as having a bit of fun.

Southside Pool Services, based in Cannington WA, was the Daisy retailer from which the January and Grand Prize winner Rebecca McLevie collected her prize so Owner Peter Schmidt said he was grateful for the opportunity for the extra promotional exposure and potentially a new customer for his store.

“We were delighted at the chance to be involved with this creative promotional campaign over the last few months, it has really helped build great awareness of our store,” said Peter.

“The combination of social media with the relevant campaign idea was spot-on given their target market is young families around Australia,” he said.

“The number of entrants over the three months exceeded our expectations, the exposure of the challenge to consumers was also beyond our expectations, and the interaction with our consumers was absolutely fantastic,” said Derek.

A rockstar effort from our Best Splash Grand Prize Winner!

With BEST SPLASH entries received from all around Australia over the summer months, the competition was fierce on Facebook and Instagram.

Our December BEST SPLASH Winner Rebecca McLevie of WA also took home the Grand Prize, which was $2,000 worth of pool maintenance and supplies from her closest Daisy Expert Southside Pool Service.

Rebecca’s winning BEST SPLASH video now has more than 2100 views, over 50 shares and nearly 130 likes including from the band Sheppard whose song Geronimo was used in the creatively choreographed video.

Last week Rebecca was presented with her prize by our Daisy Managing Director Derek Prince and Jarred Parry from Southside Pool Services in Cannington, WA. Rebecca who was accompanied by her brother and cousin said her prize was going to her Grandad as it was his pool they used on Christmas Day to shoot the video: “We use Grandad’s pool all the time, we even have pool parties there where there can be over 30 of us and Grandad will cook for us on the BBQ,” she said.

“I was so happy winning the GoPro last time and even took it to our Bali holiday immediately. The grand prize is awesome and I want it to go to Grandad to help him. One of the first things he will probably get is a pool cover and roller because he has been talking about it for a while now so we might just order it for him.”

Jarred from Southside Pool Services said, “It still leaves him with plenty of the prize to look after his pool and we would be delighted to help Rebecca’s Grandad spend the rest of the prize money on the various maintenance and supplies that we have in store.”

When collecting her prize Rebecca said in the lead up to the end of the Challenge they were all watching the other entrants of the competition. “There were some real good ones there… we were getting a bit worried as the January winner was getting a lot of likes. Mum said the reach of the video got so much that she was getting friend requests through Facebook from people she knew in the UK,” she added.

If you haven’t already seen it, check out Rebecca’s video here. Congratulations to Rebecca once again on her clever entry. With the catchy music and unique choreography, you’re a worthy winner. Enjoy…

Announcing our January Best Splash Winner!

We had more than 30 BEST SPLASH entries in January on Facebook and Instagram.

Congratulations goes to Alex Dorrity of NSW for his original BEST SPLASH photo taken with friends at sunset near his home at Kingsley Beach. It was an amazing shot that gained over 106 likes on Facebook.

Alex was overseas when he heard the good news. However, one of the first things he did when he returned was visit his nearest Daisy Expert Poolside Davidson Pool & Spa Services at Salamander Bay. There he was presented with his new GoPro Hero Black Edition camera by Shop Owner Adam Parker.

Our winner Alex, who is currently in his second year of Uni studying to be a Pre School Teacher, was very pleased to win the Go Pro and said it was on his wish list! He said he found the competition on the internet by doing a Google on ‘Win a Camera’. Lucky him!

Alex said, “I dreamed of winning the Go Pro so I was so excited to hear that I’d won when I was on holiday in the US. I’d like to use my new Go Pro to do another ‘SPLASH’ for the Daisy Facebook Page.”

We look forward to seeing Alex’ next SPLASH! Check out his winning entry here:

From our Expert, Adam said he definitely saw future potential to use the promotion in his business and looking back, he said he could have used it to a bigger advantage in November 2014 when he had his Shop Open Day. He’s delighted to be a part of this win/ win idea!

Our BEST SPLASH Grand Prize Winner to be announced this week – stay tuned!
