Social media feeds are inundated with eye-catching products. Hand-decorated cookie bakery DecoCookies came to Next PR to spread its message of joy with others, drive cookie sales and capture the attention of its target audiences, including parents of young children and teachers.



To place DecoCookies’ products in front of its target buyers, Next PR built a strategy leveraging a network of national and local influencers on Instagram and TikTok. The team sought to engage these influencers in partnership opportunities with DecoCookies to highlight its unique, tasty treats. Next PR offered seasonal cookie kits in exchange for Instagram posts, Instagram Stories or TikToks reels, showcasing the various cookie products.

In support of seasonal cookie promotions at local retailers, the Next PR team identified regional influencers with high engagement rates, offering free cookie kits to garner user-generated content promoting timely deals and new region launches.

The team also supported the launch of DecoCookies’ brand ambassador program, outlining a point system and creating a way to track ambassador posts and rewards. This program opened the door for increased user-generated content and boosted brand awareness through regular posts by the company’s brand ambassadors.
