How Ferrero made youngsters go crazy right at the POS & saved them their pocket money.

12Snap - A NeoMedia Technologies Company (

Develop an innovative mass-market campaign for Ferrero’s premium brands duplo and hanuta to create immediate activation for sales of the products. Use a mechanism that attracts young adults and generates an added value.

All products were activated with unique codes. Buyers of the product could redeem their code by sending a simple text message, the favorite hobby of youngsters. After that they received a piece of mobile content as an instant reward directly at the POS. The added value for the participant: The mobile content was derived from the blockbuster hit “Madagascar” and was given away for free (usually worth 2-5 Euro in market)! An additional collector’s album for the mobile phone made people go wild for collecting all content pieces (50 different kinds in total) and generated repeat purchases.

An incredible 9% response rate and 850.000 participations in only 15 weeks. 30% of all participants entered a series of codes during the promotion; the most active participant even entered 62 codes!
