Tohato uses mobile social gaming to create brand engagement


Savoury snack maker Tohato used mobile internet and QR codes on packaging to launch two new flavours and create a buzz in Japan. A mobile phone game called "World's Worst War" was designed pitting Tyrant Habanero's Imperial Army against Satan Jolokia's Demon Army in a war to decide the ‘hottest and tastiest snack’. Players purchased their preferred product, scanning a QR code on the package into their phones to select a faction on which to side. The participants could then accumulate points and rise in rank by recruiting friends to join twice-weekly massively multiplayer online battles against countless other players. This case study shows how to make advertising money work hard, to attract, engage and change behaviour. The campaign also drove advocacy and word of mouth and demonstrates the binding power of co-creation communication strategies. The game resulted in participation of over 10,000 people and led to communities discussing the battle strategies. The campaign resulted in increase page views on the website to 100,000 per day.

‘Peephole’ Axe campaign mixes QR codes with Facebook to drive brand engagement


This risqué ‘Peephole’ campaign from men’s deodorant brand Axe made innovative use of QR codes. The ad targeted its demographic of young men with a ‘hot’ video that suddenly stops, prompting viewers to continue the experience at the brand’s Facebook page. Once on the social networking site, users could unblock hotter and more daring videos by sharing the experiences with their friends. The action kept getting hotter in the videos, all leading to one common message: STOP LURKING, START MATING. Experience the AXE Effect. A reminder that to get into the action, you need AXE.

The campaign worked by making smart use of QR codes, video content, Facebook Pages and consumer insight. The results were 14% of the target audience watched the videos daily. 33% increase in social interaction with the brand. 52 % increase in post views and feedback (engagement) on Facebook.
