Alpro launched the Deskfest competition to encourage its target audience to make simple, plant-based swaps and create healthy, creative and inspiring desk based breakfasts to be shared on Twitter and featured on a micro site, created by Crab. The #deskfest campaign was heavily focused on Twitter and presented the perfect opportunity to take advantage of the Twitter Ads platform to ensure the competition had the right boost to cut above the rest of the noise.
We created a site that automatically pulled in any images shared using the hashtag '#deskfest'. This allowed us to create a brand owned space in which to showcase entries and encourage further sharing.
We incorporated promoted Twitter activity into a wider integrated marketing strategy for the duration of the Deskfest campaign. Every morning, during key breakfast hours, tweets were promoted, simultaneously advertising the competition, encouraging entries, and showcasing images submitted from previous days.
We used Twitter as the principal entry method for Deskfest. Entrants were required to submit images of their most creative desk breakfasts via Twitter or the Alpro website to be featured on the specially designed online gallery. The most inspirational and creative Deskfest entry won a trip to New York. We then undertook a targeted promotion campaign for the competition and use of the #deskfest hashtag to drive entry submissions.
