WeChat Strategy For Success:
Burberry like many other western brands in China, has also run quite a few WeChat campaigns tied in to the local festivals. Last year, from the 6th of January to the 19th, Burberry curated a collection of gifts for the Chinese New Year.
- Known for its significant investment in WeChat’s most high-tech marketing features, Burberry is highlighting a selection of men’s and women’s gifts in a new interactive campaign for the upcoming Chinese New Year holiday (February 8).
- The British label’s ‘A Lunar New Year’ gift campaign allows users to tap, swipe, and shake to digitally “unwrap” gifts from the brand.
- Once their gift is “unwrapped,” they have the opportunity to send a personalised e-card to contacts on WeChat.
In addition, users will be entered for a chance to win limited-edition Burberry Lunar New Year envelopes when they unlock their “gift” on the app. These limited-edition envelopes were made to be available for in-store pickup, thereby driving footfall up and subsequently increasing traffic and sales.
