About the campaign.

La Panchina is a great boutique pizza restaurant located right next to a park in Surry Hills. The Pizza is affordable, they have a wood fire oven, and the owner is Italian. They have amazing reviews on Google and Trip Advisor, so what could be holding them back?

The Challenge


COVID 19. The client was finding COVID 19 restrictions, and the lack of website was really affecting their conversions (especially calls). 

Pulse agency set out to work within the parameters of the restrictions to increase the number of calls La Panchina received.

The Solution


We worked with the Surry Hills Creative Prescient and with @jimmywongeats (who took amazing photos and videos that we could edit). We created a comprehensive Facebook campaign using different creative angles, copies, and targeted audiences to incentivise the users to contact Lucca via phone calls and social messaging.


The campaign lasted 45 days.
