Describe the objective of the promotion.
Breathe new life into our beer brand by having a bit of fun with our packaging.
Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation
We could only print on the existing packaging. We could only effect one side of the carton.
Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results
An amazing 64,814 cases in the first month.
Surely a new Australian record for chessboard sales.
A new wave of excitement about an old game that was perfect to play with your mate.
Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service
We printed a chessboard on the underside of the beer carton, and printed the various chess pieces under the bottle caps within. Given that you need 32 chess pieces to play a game of chess and each carton only came with 24 bottles of beer, we were able to encourage repeat purchases as a result.
The Promo / PR Ad titled CHESSBOARD was done by Saatchi & Saatchi Australia advertising agency for product: Tooheys Beer (brand: Tooheys) in Australia. It was released in the Jan 2010.
