Pick n Pay launched a social media campaign to get people interacting with the brand on social media platforms as well as highlighting Women’s Day. Part of the Inspired by Women campaign was a blogging competition where bloggers were encouraged to write about the inspirational women in their lives by standing the chance to win R1000 in gift cards and a further R1000 for who they wrote about. Simultaneously they held a twitter competition where their twitter followers could tell them what makes a woman and stand to win R500 daily.
The third component of the campaign was a facebook competition. Facebook followers could pledge allegiance to one of the women in the PnP photo album of inspirational women by tagging themselves and standing the chance to win PnP gift cards.
Pick n Pay selected four local women who embody the spirit of Women’s Day to share their stories. These were Elmarie Claasens a clinical psychologist; writer, singer and actress Amanda Strydom; Zukiswa Wanner an author and Tertia Albertyn owner of Nurture, an egg donation program.
The facebook page also allowed followers to interact with their Health Guru who answered questions, their Prize Fairy who organised anything to do with the prize winners and their Comic Cook who provided recipes and homemaking advice.
Have a look at these great clips, and remind yourselves of how far we’ve come since the days of black & white.
As far as we know the campaign was by Aqua online, can we have confirmation?
