WIN CARS THAT MAKE YOUR DAD LOOK COOL
GLAXO SMITH KLINE
The Marketing Store
- Traditionally Ribena had been targeted at mothers and children.
- Historically, promotional activity had been price led.
- 90% of sales to the 'out of home' market were to teenagers and young adults.
- To drive trial, awareness and consequently sales of Ribena.
- To position the brand with teenagers and young adults as the 'drink for me'.
- The promotion needed to communicate with this core market (18-34 year olds) and provide an irreverent concept that will appeal to 'the child in them'.
- A fully integrated through the line campaign was required with a strong incentive to purchase.
- The brand equity, Ribenaberry, was to feature strongly in the promotion.
Unique RIBENABERRY key rings, with eyes that popped out when squeezed, were housed in the neck collars of the three million promotional bottles of Ribena under the tagline 'Grow-Up One Day'.
Bottle collars also carried details of an instant win mechanic with the cheeky headline 'Win Cars that make your Dad look cool'.
There were 25 prizes of second hand cars.
Non-winners had a further opportunity to enter by answering a simple question on-line.
The promotion was supported with TV and 48 sheet posters above the line as well as wobblers, bunting and shelf barkers at point of sale.

- Ribena carton (although un-promoted) achieved its highest sales for 22 months.
- Ribena became No.1 selling soft drink (including carbonates) in a number of accounts - high streets, forecourts and independents.
- Sales value in Airport Services moved Ribena 500ml from No. 27 brand to No. 2 brand in the soft drinks sector.
- The RIBENABERRY key ring became a 'must have' with consumers writing and calling to find out how to get hold of one.
The key ring and the car complemented each other perfectly. The novel premium and impactful POS were instrumental in hitting the right note with this extremely difficult target market.
