About the Client
The Signal Post is a Cheltenham-based mid-range wine brand offering Fair Trade wines from South Africa. The Signal Post wines are a celebration of a journey through the heart of South Africa and one of the world’s iconic train journeys - the Blue Train - travelling from Cape Town to Pretoria through some of the most breathtaking scenery.
The Signal Post serves to remind us that not all journeys are measured in miles, and that sometimes the best part is just sitting back and enjoying the ride! You can see The Signal Post wines stocked in your local Sainsburys or Co-op.
The Signal Post came to us wishing to grow their wine brand organically and build customer loyalty through social media. The challenge they had was building an Instagram following from scratch. However, this meant Factory Pattern could use this clean slate to take The Signal Post's vision and deliver a beautiful Instagram feed from the start. The client tasked us with using both organic and paid tactics to meet their goals of building brand awareness and engagement.
