“I'd recommend this campaign type to any company that wants to create excitement - and new customers - in the online space.”
BRANDON PETERSON, VP OF MARKETING, TACO TIME
Quick Service Restaurant
Taco Time Northwest’s 50th anniversary was rapidly approaching. They asked Bonsai to come up with a special way to celebrate.
We said: “Crispy chicken tacos!” They said: “How about a noticeable lift in traffic and sales across our 70 restaurants in Washington?”
We said: “No problemo!”
It was a familiar story. Taco Time was frustrated with lackluster reporting and unclear results coming from traditional television advertising. They wanted to move their brand deeper into social media. Rapidly becoming the dominant channel for restaurant brands. So Bonsai created the Ultimate Fan Challenge!
People competed for epic prizes (including a $10k cash prize to the “Ultimate Fan”) by accumulating points. Specifically, users got points for doing things like becoming a Facebook Fan or following the company on Twitter -- but that was just the beginning. As people advanced through challenges, they took on higher level activities. Like posting their favorite custom Taco orders or sharing the contest with their friends.
But that was nothing compared to what the ultimate fan did.
What did Dan Podhola do?
Simply put, Dan was the man! And the man who won $10,000 for being our Ultimate Taco Time Fan. But what did all this rapping and Mexi-fry stop-motion animating do for Taco Time?
In just five weeks, the Ultimate Fan Challenge exploded. Resulting in over 7 million impressions from over 3 million people. Not to mention an 8 percent increase in total site traffic. And… wait for it… a noticeable lift in sales across the state. Not to mention dramatically increasing our client’s social footprint. And introducing thousands of new people to the brand simultaneously.
Like we said: “No problemo.”
