  • 35. ‘Kotex first looked through thousands of women’spinboards in search of 50 power users with a largenumber of engaged followers on Pinterest who could befuture Kotex customers. They then studied the 50women’s boards to get a better understanding of some ofthe things they are passionate about. After the analysis,they created custom gift boxes for each woman filled withgoodies they believed would resonate with them. I wouldestimate they invested between $50 and $100 per giftbox.The surprise gifts created the response Kotex had aimedfor in almost all 50 women. They chatted online aboutKotex and shared images and stories about theircustomized and unexpected gifts on Pinterest, which thenfurther extended the campaign into a wider community.When the case study video was posted on YouTube,Kotex had 2,000 interactions between the 50 women andtheir friends and almost 695,000 generated from thecampaign.’M2M & DIWOhttp://www.casestudiesonline.com/kotex50/
