In 2015, the average age of residents was 42.6, in 2016 it was 42.4 (so people in Short Hills are getting younger). Besides, of the almost 30% of share by kids/teenagers/young adults.

With our consultancy approach we guided Primo Mercato in its first steps in the world of communication. A partner like Made in Itaca knows that the most important thing in communication is coherence: between values and story; between graphic design rules and the content developed daily; between editorial plan and tone of voice. To support Primo Mercato in respecting this coherence, we managed the creative direction of the photo shootings, which were crucial to create consistent content for all the communication tools: website, social network, newsletter and press kit.
After the analysis, we selected the right tools based on the target and on the goals. The strategy included the opening of Facebook and Instagram accounts before the grand opening. This is why we decided to work organically for 3 months. In the months following the opening, we structured a fan recruitment and published the editorial content with the goal of promoting the opening of the point of sale. Finally, on the occasion of the Super Bowl, we sponsored some IG Stories to inform the target users of the event organized by Primo.
