Iconic freezepop brand, Mr Freeze, tasked Rumpus to increase its consumer engagement through social media and bring the brand into the 21st Century whilst retaining its retro connotations.
The key objective was to remind consumers of the much-loved childhood brand whilst introducing Mr Freeze to the next generation.
We used the tag line ‘reintroducing the coolest pop in the universe’ and ran audience profiling research to help target the right people on social media.
We developed a social media campaign, creating a Facebook, Twitter and Instagram page for the brand from scratch. The strategy was two-fold, targeting both teenagers and parents, as a high proportion of sales fell within these target markets. We identified peak purchasing times for different audiences, and ran a successful campaign targeting pregnant women with cravings for ice pops.
We introduced many engagement tactics, including video and spot the difference competitions, and used media to amplify the messaging.
