ONCE UPON A TIME
The 3-in-1 Perfect Mix was an integrated campaign with the objective to build the brand via radio, with an online facebook entry mechanism and downloadable app mixer. The campaign featured Toya Delazy – a rising star in the Sony Music stable – whose image and music synergised with all activities. The campaign was targeted at first jobbers, matching taheir lifestyle and media consumption habits.
The Perfect Mix campaign was introduced via facebook and radio promotions. Listeners were asked to ‘like’ the Nescafé 3-in-1 Perfect Mix page as an additional entry mechanism. Toya’s hit song, Love is in the Air, was available as an app download and contestants were challenged to remix the song in their own way. Selected entrants had their mixes flighted as frequency spots for which listeners were encouraged to vote. Broadcast on 7 commercial radio stations, listeners voted for their favourite Strong, Original or Mild mixes.
The ideal combination of rising star, brand values and media synergies, Nescafé’s 3-in-1 Perfect Mix consisted of an online app – the first of its kind in SA at the time – allowing contestants to remix Toya Delazy’s new music track. Product trial was encouraged by handing out sample packs during morning commutes. Music gigs across the country were sponsored during the promotional period and Toya Delazy performed at the grand finale where one rising DJ won a R50 000 prize.
HAPPILY EVER AFTER
