Describe the objective of the promotion.
Our aim was to set the mood for the next UNIQLO special sale, boost sales, and to lead people from the web to real stores.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation.
If there is a crowd of people on a website, people can know which site is “in” now.
To create a big buzz about the special sale and the UNIQLO website, we invented a “waiting line” on a website.

We made people wait in a waiting line, “UNIQLO LUCKY LINE”, for the special sale on the UNIQLO website using Twitter and Facebook. If people made tweets, they could join the line and get discount coupons for real stores.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service.
To set the mood for the special sale, the best way is changing just the "sale" into a "festival" or "entertainment".
If people see their friends are enjoying a festival through Twitter or Facebook, they also want to join in.
The waiting line on a website is the simplest entertainment for people to enjoy the waiting time.

We also provide a way from the website to the real stores. We gave discount coupons according to the number of the waiting line. People were not only playing on the website, but they went to the real store with the coupon.

Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results.
The world’s first waiting line on the website created a big buzz. Tons of people made a line on the UNIQLO website: 180,000 people in Japan, 630,000 in Taiwan and 1,300,000 in China. “UNIQLO LUCKY LINE” once became the top worldwide trend word on Twitter. People also made a line in front of the real stores, and UNIQLO set a single day sales record in Japan of more than 10 billion yen.
