14 Clever Holiday Facebook Campaigns in the Philippines
#1 Sunnies Studios – Free shipping on everything
Sunnies Studios is not just a company that sells sunglasses but foremost a lifestyle brand. They are good at marketing their products and their latest holiday campaign is a good example of that.
In the ad example below, they combined two strong factors that really work together.
First, they chose to post an image of their latest endorser, Liza Soberano to promote their different style of eyewear instead of coming up with an edited picture of their brand collection.
Second, they highlighted their free shipping service and put the ‘Shop Now’ button. This way, it’ll be easier for their audience to go to their landing page and shop their products.
#2 Philippine Airlines – Ready, Set! PALFEST
Philippine Airlines is also setting up the game this season. They want to target those audiences who want to have a holiday getaway before the year ends. They used a carousel-type ad to promote their campaigns.

Buying gadgets never go out of trend. I-Click Digishop launched a holiday campaign for camera geeks and tech lovers.
These are the factors why it’s a great example of a Facebook holiday campaign.
