Heinz has rolled out its Get Well Soup campaign for the fifth year
running, so Facebook users are able to purchase a can of
personalised soup from the Heinz fan page.
There are a limited number of cans available each day and with each
purchase Heinz will give £1 to charity.
Personalised products are hugely popular (as we’ve seen with the
Coca-Cola cans) and as this is the fifth year Heinz has run this
initiative it clearly sees good results.

edition, content creators are Going Epic and are given big budgets to
pull off stunts, ranging from monster truck trick shots to being set on
fire to breaking through glass.
The idea was to find creative people in social media, particularly
vine-ographers, give them the machine and invite them to be
creative with it in six seconds.
The reason this social media campaign works is that it speaks to its
desired audience as part of HP’s recent focus on revamping its brand
to attract a younger demographic. Another reason it was so effective
was it used influencers within its campaign to do the influencing for
World Wildlife Fund (WWF)
As one of the winners of the 2015 Webby Awards, the Snapchat
campaign for the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) pulled on the
heartstrings of animal lovers everywhere. WWF used the idea that
selfies disappear off Snapchat after 10 seconds to illustrate the
disappearance of endangered species around the world. The result
was worldwide branding and sharing that led to increased donations
for the month in only a matter of days.

Tumblr page last year that promoted a range of things to see and do
across the country via animated gifs, images and original content.

VisitBritain’s content doubled in the first month, with blog
impressions tripling in comparison to the month prior.

experience in Great Britain and helped reduce the cost of the
campaign by 40%.
