Social Media Scavenger Hunt

As a brand that is only available in the summertime, and is many times sold under importer brands, Summer Citrus from South Africa wanted to create a promotion that would get both consumers and retailers excited about their products being in store.

DMA created Taste of Summer advertisements that mirrored flash promotions in order to intrigue audiences to both follow our page and participate in a scavenger hunt to find our fruit. Consumers were asked to go to their local grocery store and post a picture with the fruit once they found it. If they were unable to, we asked that they tag their retailers to let them know they wanted the fruit to be available in store. In conjunction, we ran retailer ads driving consumers to areas and stores in which we knew fruit was available.
