  • Multiple assets across Facebook including teaming up with noted Irish comedian PJ Gallagher, short videos, animated motion graphics, a series of widely popular illustrations and gifs from illustrator Rob Stears, and copy about the survey
  • Mugs, calendars, and t-shirts to give away in Facebook competitions

  • Blog posts further discussing the topic
  • A dedicated landing page to house the various assets, as well as convert visitors into leads
