Microexperience of the Week: Walmart "Upgrade Your Summer" Sweepstakes by Fuel Partnerships

Concept: To promote Walmart's retail brand partners, Fuel Partnerships launched an “Upgrade Your Summer” Sweepstakes featuring tips for summer entertaining.

Objective: Drive brand loyalty for Walmart’s CPG retail brand partners; encourage in-store sales and acquire new emails.

Digital Campaign Index (DCI) Score: 228

Use Case: Sweepstakes + Social Content Stream

Unfortunately, we all haven’t been blessed with the domestic prowess and entertaining skills of Ina Garten, whose summer dishes and parties are always Instagram perfect. For the rest of us, Fuel Partnerships has launched a fun and educational new sweepstakes to equip us with a few basic tips and tricks that we can pull out this summer to upgrade our backyard entertaining.

Fuel Partnerships has featured 14 retail brands that you can find in-store at Walmart, along with a sweepstakes entry form and unique tips tied to each brand. To add to the appeal, fans will have multiple chances to win by clicking on each brand tile each day. A few of the prizes being offered include, new patio furniture set, outdoor speakers, grill, and an assortment of Walmart gift cards. The great news, Fuel Partnerships decided not to limit entries, so fans have 14 chances per day to unlock the prizes and tips behind each tile for brands like, Blue Diamond, 7up, and Sabra. In addition to the sweepstakes, they are also featuring social media content being posted and shared using the hashtag #UpgradeYourSummer.

DCI Score Overview: 228

Fuel Partnerships’ “Upgrade Your Summer” sweepstakes’ DCI score is a combination of an Engagement Score (ES) and Virality Score (VS). Their campaign is benefiting from the variety in prize and entry options, and brand partnerships.

Check out more details below on best practices you can incorporate into your digital campaigns to increase Engagement and Virality.


Engagement Score (ES)

  • Have a clear call to action: One of the easiest ways to encourage engagement is to provide clear, specific guidance on how to participate in the campaign. Fuel Partnerships kept the ask simple, click a tile, enter a form for the chance to unlock a prize. We have discussed this tip before, but it is a simple step that can greatly increase the success of a campaign or sweepstakes. Lengthy directions or multiple calls-to-action may increase confusion preventing consumers from participating.
  • Allowing multiple entries per day. Many campaigns limit consumers to only one vote or one entry throughout the duration of the campaign, but Fuel realized that allowing multiple entries per day per consumer would not only drive repeat traffic, but also repeat content and campaign-level sharing.

Virality Score (VS)

  • Enable multiple options for sharing. If there is one best practice that every brand or agency can incorporate into their campaigns, it is enabling consumers with the ability to share entries in multiple ways, including Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook and via email. The easier you make the process for sharing the more likely it is that your consumers will share content from your campaign.
  • Include a hashtag for sharing and featuring. A simple way to increase sharing is to enable entry submission using a campaign hashtag on social or include a social content stream tied to a hashtag on your campaign’s landing page.
