Their Story

Don’t Call It Athleisure

Founded in 2012, Mizzen+Main invented a new approach to the modern classic dress shirt by using moisture-wicking, wrinkle-resistant fabric that requires no ironing or dry cleaning. The Dallas-based brand also features other performance-based products for modern professionals, including chinos, polos, and many more.

The Solution

The Influence Of Style Using Facebook Ad Creative

To manage their Facebook marketing strategy, Mizzen+Main partnered with Wpromote. Together they devised a plan to use Instagram posts from influencers to reach prospective customers, with the help of Facebook Business Partner Lumanu.

To effectively reach people with this influencer content, Lumanu automated the process to directly connect Mizzen+Main’s network of content creators to their Facebook ad account. The influencers posted in their Instagram feeds and Instagram Stories, which provided a trove of creative assets for Mizzen+Main to amplify in their paid campaigns. Once an influencer posted a photo or video, it would flow into Mizzen+Main’s ad account, where Wpromote transformed it into ads with various copy and calls to action, inspiring customers to make a purchase.

Lumanu also worked with Instagram influencers to create lookalike audiences based on the groups of people who engaged with their posts and profiles. Lumanu allowed influencers to share these lookalike audiences with Mizzen+Main, which were then used as a prospecting audience for the campaign.

A Partnership That Prevails

Mizzen+Main’s campaign strategy proved that ad creative and a valuable partnership from influencers can help acquire new customers and drive sales.
