Cruisin’ to Win!Irving OilOur Cruisin’ to Win game promotion was one of the most effective Petroleum promotions in recent years. With a huge focus on the importanceof the small Instant Prizes combined with an amazing Collect to Win game as well as an Online Game that forged Irving’s Customer RelationshipMarketing email database, Cruisin’ to Win made a huge impact on the Atlantic Canada and New England USA markets. Cruisin’ to Win“zigged” when others “zagged”. “Is that the phone, or the cash register? At the cash register, Cruisin’ to Win racked up double-digit year-over-year increases in same-store sales across Atlantic Canada and New England in 2003 and again in 2004. At the store, Irving saw a flow of new customers in the key opportunity and non-user segments, females, younger age groups and professionals. And the campaign fuelled interactivity and chatter between customers and staff.” ~Cruisin’ to success – Cruisin’ to brand equity. Excerpt from June 2005 issue of Marketing Magazine.

Clorox CanadaBrita BottlesWe have been working with Brita Canada for over six years developing a wide assortment of custom promotional items for their national andcustomer specific gift with purchase value add promotions.In the spring of 2004, research indicated consumers were spending a lot of money buying cases of bottled water for daily consumption whilea perfectly good Brita Filtration system sat on their counter, was in their fridge or was mounted to their faucet.Brita challenged us to develop a promotion that would effectively promote the use and consumption of Brita Filtered Water outside the home.We developed a custom Brita Premium Water Bottle making Brita Filtered Water portable. The promotion was extremely successful and startedan exciting trend in what was otherwise a very inactive category.To date, we have produced over 500,000 hard plastic water bottles in various sizes and colours and almost 50,000 premium stainless steelwater bottles!
