INSIGHT

The target audience of healthy living women want products they can trust and believe in, so reinforcing the key USPs and all-natural moisturising ingredients of the new products was vital.

In addition, to stay relevant over the six-month campaign period, we needed to continually refresh our content to keep audiences coming back, while attracting new ones.

Idea

To create a dynamic destination that offers an innovative and exciting way to showcase Burt’s Bees’ new 100% natural lipstick range online, encourages fun, social and personalised interactions with the products, brings the product key USPs to the fore, gives away samples in a targeted manner, captures data and creates a reason to buy.

IMPLEMENTATION

A beautifully designed digital ‘hub’ containing an array of interactive features including:

  • A Find Your Shade tool, to help users find their perfect shade
  • A social wall, featuring user-generated content via the hashtag #LipstickThatLovesYouBack
  • A personalised online gift card tool with a discount offer for the recipient
  • Full product info on the 18 different shades and their ingredients
  • A competition offering the chance to win free lipsticks every 8 hours, highlighting the product’s 8-hour moisturising properties

The activations were drip-fed into the hub during the campaign period, so that Burt’s Bees continually had fresh content to promote.

IMPACT

Exact figures are confidential, but the online hub played an important role in the overall launch campaign, and delivered high level of engagement to help Burt’s Bees achieve its launch targets.
