Microexperience Highlight: 1-800-Flowers Father’s Day Countdown

The 1-800-Flowers Father’s Day Countdown is a creative and highly engaging microexperience that drives more site traffic, encourages repeat visits to the site, and drives brand affinity. 

About 1-800-Flowers

Known for their easily accessible assortment of flower arrangements and gifts, 1-800-Flowers has quickly become a household name and go-to delivery service for special occasions all around the globe. Starting with a flower shop in 1976, this national brand has remained relevant for over 40 years and expanded along with their customer base through offering convenience, consistency, quality and connection. This experience is a prime example of how intentional they’ve been with their brand and why it’s paid off. 

The Microexperience: Father's Day Countdown Calendar

The experience included a 7 day countdown to Father’s Day starting on June 11th, with each day linking to a range of heartfelt, funny, and shoppable content to help make the holiday even more special.

As the holiday approaches, you’re able to unlock specially curated content for Father’s Day that help customers’ connect with the brand in a special way. Day 11 is linked to a nostalgic post written by the founder that also invites readers to share a story of their own. Day 15 invites listeners to a Father’s Day podcast episode hosted by the CEO, and Day 16 links to a very father-appropriate playlist hand-selected by the brand. 

The calendar also included shoppable content from their family brands for those needing hosting tips, gift inspo, and e-cards for any last-minute shoppers (like myself).
