Describe the objective of the promotion.
A.O.Smith is a major producer of water heaters in China, and has high awareness for its electric-powered models, but with the growing consumer trend towards low carbon energy sources, A.O.Smith have launched a solar-powered water heater. We want to launch the A.O.Smith solar-powered water heater in a unique way.
Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation.
In the heart of Shanghai, China’s key market for solar powered products, we constructed the A.O.Smith 'Sun Bathing' consumer experience.
It consisted of a self-contained lightproof shower room, complete with shower nozzle fitted into the ceiling. It looked just like any other dark tiled bathroom, except that it was rays of sunlight, not streams of water that flowed through the showerhead.
Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service.
The shower room brought a wonderful and warm bath experience to the visitor. When you entered the room, it looked like any other dark tiled bathroom. It was rays of sunlight, not streams of water that flowed through the showerhead. Every visitor could enjoy the experience comes from A.O.Smith solar-powered water heater.
Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results.
More than 20,000 people attended the event.
Consumer-generated 890,379 Weibo postings and an increase in sales of 23% in Shanghai have led A.O.Smith to make plans to roll out the 'Sun Bathing' experience into Nanjing and Hangzhou.
At the end of 2011, A.O.Smith occupied the top share in China's solar-powered water heater market.
