Media agency Inspired UM approached us with the Nestle brand  and a goal to present their selection of cereals as a perfect way to kick-start your day.

Our search for the best fitting food influencers started in the three Baltic States: Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.

We decided to target active and sporty micro influencers looking for filling and healthy breakfast ideas.

Goal: to increase Nestle cereal brand awareness in the Baltic countries among active, food conscious and sporty women between 25–35 years.

This only shows that by connecting the right brand with the right people we can generate the kind of word of mouth that really drives brand awareness and sales. People trust people — not advertising companies.
