how we increased a local gin distiller's online presence without paid ads


  • They were time-poor business owners

  • They didn’t understand the full capability of social media to increase sales

  • They didn't have in-house marketing staff

When gin-lovers Mei Lin and Tim launched Happenstance, they wanted something that looked and felt different to other distillery brands on the market.

They wanted their feminine design to attract a female market in a fun, creative and engaging way.

They needed a team who understood their brand, their customers and how to use social media to make them stand out.

challenge one

Mei Lin and Tim were passionate about their product, but too time poor to promote it.

challenge two

They didn't have the skills to manage their own social media.

challenge three

They needed someone who could not just publish content, but who could actually help them get sales through their social media.

introducing NINKI - the solution

NINKI never starts a project without a strategy. The first thing we did was meet Mei Lin and Tim for a strategy meeting where we spoke about their social media strategy and their broader business goals.

We unpacked everything we needed to know about their business, as if we were working in it. Their ideal customers, their brand, their product, their competitors. Everything!

With that information in mind, we developed a social media strategy to increase their online presence and market their unique and delicious product.

With the strategy signed off, we moved onto a content harvest where we captured videos and photos that we could use on their social media.

Finally, the strategy and content (feed posts, stories, reels, captions, hashtags - the works!) were married up and delivered for review.

the results

And now? Their social media runs like clock work, in this way, from month to month. Each month, we review the strategy, create the content and manage their social media to ensure they are always top of mind and receiving website visits from their social channels.

With a clear and creative strategy, consistent content and effective engagement strategies, Happenstance's socials saw some pretty magical results.

  • Increased their followers by 18%.

  • Increased impressions from 21,000 to 162,205 in just three months.

  • Increase website traffic and sales.

The gin makers now have raving fans visiting them at expo events and receiving comments on how good their content on social media is, and that's how they now know of the brand!

Mei Lin and Tim also receive positive feedback about their socials from other gin distillers and expos.

More importantly, they have more time to work on making more delicious gin for their customers while NINKI takes care of their social media.

in less than 12 months, NINKI increased Happenstance's followers by 18% and their promotion reach by just over 700%

How NINKI helped make Dockside Festival a success

This first-time community event in Port Adelaide was counting down the days to event day, however, they were so busy with event operation planning they had zero time to produce content and promote the festival on their social media channels.

We rolled out a content harvest along with social media strategy and implemented it. Within just two weeks, Facebook reach increased to 100,223 people, and Instagram reach increased to 17,502 people. Overall, the content created and published by NINKI received over 9,000 engagements on Facebook and Instagram.

NINKI's activity for Dockside Festival on social media helped to create a successful well-attended community event, so much so that it's confirmed to return for another year!


How we helped this interior design business owner spend more time with her family instead of haphazardly posting

Like most business owners, Bailey was posting to social media on the fly and didn't feel like there was any strategy to it. Overwhelmed by digital marketing in general, and really needing to outsource social media, Bailey engaged the NINKI team.

We designed a customised and dynamic strategy with flexibility. Bailey’s strong vision for her business allowed us to create clear content pillars and engagement criteria that quickly transformed her social platforms and initiated organic growth.

“I’m useless at social media and I’m not one to plan. NINKI has helped me turn around my social media. I don’t even have to think about it. NINKI has basically saved my business this year. I’ve seen a massive increase in followers and new clients through my social media.” -Bailey


How we help Adelaide Outdoor Kitchens generate more enquiries

The owner wanted to increase Google ranking and presence on social media, in order to generate more leads.

Homeowners spend a lot of time online researching home improvement ideas on platforms like Pinterest, Instagram and Google. We created a comprehensive and strategic content plan leveraging these platforms to drive website traffic and engagement, which lead to an increase in enquiries.

Today, 62% of Adelaide Outdoor Kitchens’ website traffic comes from organic SEO as a result of their SEO-optimised blog articles. Plus, their social media content continues to be the main source of enquiries which are directly linked to the content we produce for them.

“I wanted to do something different to reach potential customers and NINKI’s blogs not only helped increase our site’s visibility in Google but drove enquiries to our business. Highly recommend NINKI's services.” - Justin
