2020 Mother’s Day Audio Card Campaign for WBUR

WBUR celebrated Mother’s Day this year with something unique – a public radio audio card featuring heartwarming, sincere and funny messages from some of our favorite hosts from WBUR and NPR.

Our annual Mother’s Day flower campaign was interrupted due to the pandemic. As we shared alternative ideas for contactless gifts, audio cards stood out from the pack.

Round One

The initial landing page featured only one call-to-action – “send card.” Site limitations initially made it challenging to have more than one.

This first iteration brought the user to the pledge page where they could make their donation amount and choose an audio card. From there, they could listen to a sample of the clip in the product description, but it was an extra step that needed to be made in order to preview the message.

Round Two

Coming up with a workaround solution, a “preview clip” was implemented as a secondary call-to-action for a more user-friendly experience. No additional steps were needed in order to preview and/or send.

In addition to the landing page, a series of email newsletters announcing (a) the campaign and (b) the actual gift fulfillment message were prepped along with a printed postcard notifying recipients that they had a special surprise waiting in their inbox.

Here is the landing page:
