Pågen, Qualifio and ClearOn: the perfect combo for “phygital”
Linking the digital and physical worlds with interactive marketing and couponing
Pågen’s success story with Qualifio and ClearOn
Pågen is Sweden’s leading bakery. The family run business bakes over 60 different products that can be found in all Swedish grocery stores but also in Denmark, Norway, Finland and Germany. Their star product is the Nordic region’s best-selling coffee bread, Gifflar.
Looking to find new solutions to reach their consumers, both in store and online, and get to know them better, the bakery saw the potential of a collaboration with ClearOn and Qualifio to create interactive campaigns that could create engagement in their target groups.
Thanks to the Qualifio platform, Pågen were able to engage their consumers in a fun and easy way by proposing a wide range of interactive formats where participants could compete for great prizes.
The brand was also able to encourage website visitors to stay for longer than usual by enabling them to play the games more than once. A great way to increase their visibility!
The collaboration with Qualifio started with individual Studio campaigns, created by our professional graphic designers, for their various sub-brands. Once they were convinced of the power of these interactive campaigns, they opted for a licence and were able to access Qualifio Engage and create more campaigns themselves.
Thanks to the integration with ClearOn, they were able to add mobile sampling coupons to their Qualifio campaigns. Connecting mobile coupons to their coupons helped them to drive traffic to stores and boost trials of their whole range of products.
Gifflar’s puzzle campaign: from engagement to data collection
Pågen used the Qualifio platform during the winter school holidays to activate their brand Gifflar throughout the Nordics region. They were able to create campaigns across all their markets in different languages.
There were some amazing prizes up for grabs, including car roof boxes, cosy Gifflar cushions and digital sampling coupons. The campaign was communicated with in store materials and on packaging, giving it as much exposure as possible, and was also supported by social media advertising.
The format chosen for this particular campaign was the puzzle, challenging participants to rebuild an image in the shortest time possible. The game could be played multiple times, so that contestants could improve their score and feature on the Top 50 leaderboard. The winners were later drawn from this list once the campaign ended.
In order to achieve a high organic spread, the brand encouraged people to share the game and their results on social media, as they could also compete for an extra prize. The campaign was given an additional push with daily draws of digital sampling coupons, for free bags of Gifflar to be picked up in store. This drove trial purchases of the product and an increase in traffic to stores.
Overall, 700 people shared the campaign, giving the campaign around 140,000 views, on top of the advertising done by Pågen. In Sweden, the brand managed to get:
With Qualifio, Pågen are collecting precious and valuable first- and zero-party data they can then leverage for personalisation purposes but also for product development. Data that they will and have already prioritised in their digital marketing strategy.
