Solution

  • RInside the treat wrapper was a surprise instant win sweepstakes for free phones and all the collateral contained a strong drive to retail communication for the opportunity to win additional prizes and phones
  • RThe program was activated in 3 cities in Canada (Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto). Retail store feedback was awesome since consumers mentioned the mobile vehicle tour as to why they were visiting the retailer and the numbers surpassed client expectations and goals!
