- Tap into your fans’ interests. It is safe to say that most people have strong opinions when it comes to music. Bose paired their new audio sunglasses with their fans love of music to boost awareness for their new product and its capabilities.
- Keep it branded. Bose’s concept for the campaign was based on the lifestyle that they project in their products and their brand’s persona. It’s something we say often here at Wyng, consumers want to interact authentically with brands, and they can smell fake sentiment from a mile away. Keep your campaigns authentic and in-line with the vision you have for your brand.
- Give away seasonal items. A giveaway that is topical to the season is a simple and smart way to encourage participation. People spend more time outside during the summer, so Bose offering outdoor music experiences and promoting their new audio sunglasses is a perfect pairing. It is a seamless, interactive way to communicate their new product story to consumers.
