Summary of the Campaign
Squares is a chocolate snack that was launched in Spain in 2010 with a traditional campaign that had little or no impact in the snack market. Kellogg's asked us to really study our consumers through a human lens and create a brand purpose in Spain.
The Situation
The snack itself is rectangular but it's called Squares: that was our starting point. We believe that in today´s world less than ever is there space for square minds. What is cool is mixing, meeting tons of people and places, doing a thousand things at once, devouring all kinds of experiences, improvising and being the most multi-platform person possible. Confusing? No, irresistibly contradictory.
The Goal
Squares exists for open minds; it runs from predictability and challenges the young spirit, giving you the energy to be active on a daily basis in today´s creative world.
And that´s how Make Mistakes was born.
The Strategy
We created Squares Bank, the world's first bank that finances your mistakes.
We only accept applicants under 25, the loans do not have to be paid back and we only lend the money to the most original, fun and especially outrageous ideas.
We finance 5 mistakes on a daily basis and will grant a macro loan of €10,000 to the most outrageous mistake.
We created an actual bank branch, all the POS materials, a mobile bank, and an online bank that made the application process a breeze.
Documented Results
More than 300 daily visits were received in our physical office for 3 weeks, and our mobile office has received more than 4,000 visits, accumulating 3,000 credit appliances.
Our online office became the greatest success, where more than 315,000 visits were counted and reached more than 26,000 fans.
All in all, there were more than 5,677 credit appliances.
Furthermore, the action was a great impact in the media:
- more than 50 minutes on TV and radio.
- hundreds of articles in written press, blogs and online diaries
A total of:
- More than €1m in PR media value
- And a 35% increase in value sales in the first month of the campaign.
