The COVID-19 pandemic has had major negative effects on the Ontario restaurant and bar industry, with hundreds of restaurants and bars closing their doors indefinitely. Carlsberg needed to safely rally Canadians together to help support the country’s beleaguered bar and restaurant industry, all while promoting the sales of Carlsberg products.
To support Carlsberg Canada accounts VIBRANT launched the Good To Be Back program. Consumers were targeted via social media with a swipe up that led them to the Good To Be Back microsite. From there, consumers chose their E-Card and sent it to a friend/family member to meet up and enjoy an appetizer on Carlsberg. Trained staff were there to reinforce Carlsberg sales.
Over a period of 10 weeks, the Good To Be Back microsite hosted 38,233 visitors, which converted to just over 16 thousand E-Cards being sent. Over 4.8 million impressions were made with +7.7K cards directly driven by social media. An additional 7 million digital impressions came from the microsite – the program reached 104% over the KPI.
