Pouring freshness into sampling
Instead of just handing out samples, we added a sprinkle of smarts and a dash of fun to the mix with interactive installations. The entire experience was designed to be gamified, ensuring the audience not only learned about the product but felt it, interacted with it, and remembered it.
Our location choices, too, were strategic. We first targeted Bagh-e Ketab in Tehran, a hub for families, aligning with Persil’s key audience. As the campaign’s dynamic continued, Niayesh Mall Commercial Complex was our next stop, a haunt for the younger couples, another significant chunk of Persil’s audience.
Netbina xperience and BTL teams got down to work; dedicated to making interactive experiences a reality!
Enter the black box
Nestled in the heart of Bagh-e Ketab and Niayesh Mall was our mysterious black box. It wasn’t just an installation, but a narrative. A room where attendees could embody the characters of dirtying and cleaning agents, offering a hands-on (literally) experience of Persil Smokey’s efficacy.
Using special projectors and Kinect sensors set up to detect participant’s movements, the Netbina xperience team created a virtual textile room full of surprises. People would move around and use their hand gestures as either the villain (staining the virtual walls) or the saviors (using Persil’s magical powers to make it all clean again)!
But our story extended beyond that intriguing box. Outside, passers-by encountered an AR mini-game. A scan of a QR code on a Persil sample, and they were taken on an interactive journey, diving into the world of Persil’s features, scents, and usage. A special bubble machine made the whole cleanliness experience even more tangible and enjoyable.
BTL tactics and smart sampling
This wasn’t random sampling. It was a BTL strategy, carefully thought out. Every individual who interacted was part of our target audience. They filled out surveys, enabling us not only to provide them with a tangible product experience but also to build a future-focused database.
The campaign journey was designed as a progression: from experiencing the product virtually, learning about it, receiving the sample to try, and then a follow-up for genuine feedback.
While the physical sample introduced them to the real-world effectiveness of Persil Smokey, our post-campaign survey made sure we had a comprehensive grasp of their experience. It was storytelling, communication, and marketing woven carefully together 🔮
With 37,000+ game participants and 40,000+ sampled products, what we embarked on with Persil wasn’t just another campaign. It was reimagining the very fabric of product sampling, done through innovation, strategic engagement, and a touch of playful experimentation 😉
