Gold Winner, ‘Best Mobile Campaign 2015’: Charcoal Brand Sales Campaign.
The promotion incentivized customers to sample a free bag Charcoal when they purchased a charcoal grill. Snipp’s unique SnippCheck receipt processing solution ensured that the promotion ran nationwide at all retailers and supported any brand or type of charcoal grill purchased by consumers. Consumers simply had to take a photo of their receipt and send it in via text, email or web upload, and once their purchases were validated were sent back a manufacturer coupon for the reward. The program also supported purchases made online and separately tracked purchases made at one particular retailer versus other retailers to provide the brand with more granular data. The promotion was conducted in partnership with the media agency for the brand.

Silver Winner, ‘Best Mobile Campaign 2015’: CPG Tiered Sweepstakes
The sweepstakes rewarded consumers with bat swings based on the number of products they purchased. Consumers could simply submit a photo of their receipt and submit it via text email or web. SnippCheck receipt processing technology processed all receipts for the promotion and post validation sent consumers URLs or text codes that directed them to a microsite where they could “swing” within the online game for a chance to win instant prizes and were also automatically entered to win a Grand Prize of a new car. The promotion was conducted in partnership with the promotion agency for the brand. See award details here: http://www.chiefmarketer.com/pro-awards-winners/silver-best-mobile-campaign-2015
