Describe the brief from the client
To come up with an in-store promotion idea to run along with the ‘Sex sells. Unfortunately we sell jeans’ campaign to help increase sales.
Describe the challenges and key objectives
The idea needed to grab eyeballs in the store, while keeping the Diesel flavour intact, with the increase in sales as the final objective.
Describe how you arrived at the final design
We created the Knee.J, a spoof sex toy of sorts that would be given away at the store for every customer that ran a bill above $150. The product was displayed and people were informed through posters and e-mailers.
Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
There was an instant buzz generation through word-of-mouth and sales picked up by 40% in the first week itself. Customers were eager to lay their hands on the Knee.J. Funny pictures of customers posing with the product found its way to blogs and social networking sites. What was meant to be a one-store activity got enough publicity to manufacture more pieces and take them across all stores. Some even made it to the headquarters in Italy. Customers were left kneeling for more.
