8848 Supports Leyland’s Acton Trade Day

8848 supports Leyland’s Acton trade day, highlighting products and growing social media presence.

The 8848 social media team brought the heat (quite literally!) in June, supporting Leyland’s biggest store at its Acton Trade Day. With a focus on capturing engaging content for Leyland’s growing social channels, this marked the third successful collaboration between the two teams in 2024.

The 8848 team captured a variety of content throughout the day. Some of it was used on the day and some will be used across the rest of 2024.

Our content included:

General trade day footage

This will be used to advertise future events and entice tradespeople to attend.

Store walkthrough

A virtual tour of the Acton location, highlighting its extensive product selection and layout.

Supplier stand coverage

Putting the spotlight on the wide range of brands and their representatives present at the event.

Product demos in action

Live demonstrations from industry leaders like OB1/CT1 showcased innovative tools and techniques. The 8848 team is adding this latest demo to Leyland’s growing portfolio, which already includes demos from Dulux, Rustins, Mirka, Zinsser, and Hamilton. This ensures a well-rounded library of valuable content.

Social media blitz

The 8848 team will strategically deploy the content across Instagram, Facebook, and Leyland’s ever-growing TikTok channel. The team has doubled Leyland’s TikTok followers organically since its launch in March.

By showcasing the latest products, industry insights, and the bustling atmosphere of the trade day, 8848 is helping Leyland solidify its position as a trusted partner for tradespeople.
