Coca Cola, one of the leading brands in the world, found through a study that 50% of the Australians have not tasted a Coke in a month, the company decided to reconnect with their consumers and remind them about their favorite soft drink. They picked Australia’s 150 most common names and printed one name on each of the bottle, urging the consumers to purchase the Coke and share it with someone special. The users were able to share a Coke digitally as well as physically. Coca Cola even placed kiosks to cover up the requests of printing the new names, but the buzz was all over. A voting was also open on the Coca Cola’s Facebook fan page, where users voted for the names that should be printed on the bottles. After 65,000 votes, Coca Cola printed 50 more names on the bottles and made Australia to share a coke with a friend and bring a smile on their face. The results of this campaign were amazing:
- 5% more people drinking coke.
- 3% increase in sales transactions.
- A whopping 870% increase in Facebook traffic.
We would like you to view the case study video of Coca Cola for this campaign, and witness the actual craze and buzz created by just a small tweak in labelling of a bottle.
