To learn more about some general tips and recommendations that all brands can include in their campaigns to drive engagement and virality, keep reading below!

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. Sparkling Ice kept the directions for submitting an entry simple and their instructions for how to guess and share on social was as easy as including a hashtag. Lengthy directions or multiple calls-to-action may increase confusion preventing consumers from participating.
  • Why offer one prize, when you could offer 450. The competition for attracting your audience’s attention is stiff, offering an unbeatable prize, or in the case of Sparkling Ice, 450 chances to win, is a great way to give your brand a leg up on the competition and increase engagement with your digital campaign.

Virality Score (VS)

  • Collect submissions using a hashtag. By collecting submissions across Instagram and Twitter using only a hashtag, Sparkling Ice lowered the bar for entry, encouraging more consumers to share their submissions.
  • Embed your campaign on a social media site. Sharing a campaign should be as easy as clicking a button. By embedding their sweepstakes and entry form on Facebook, Sparkling Ice ensured that consumers could easily spread the word to all their friends, without even having to open a new website tab!

We will certainly be keeping an eye on this campaign to see what the mystery flavor might be! Be sure to make your own guess here, or on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #WhatTheFlavorSweeps.
