About the Entry

IAC Crystal Trophy

The Beef Equity promotion was developed to engage consumers and teach them about our hamburgers. In particular we explain why our hamburgers are better than our competitors.  We created interactive games and videos that walked consumers through each of the four pillars that sets Wendy’s apart from the rest (Fresh Never Frozen Beef, 100% Pure Beef, North American Beef and Made to Order ).  We were able to draw consumers to the application by rewarding them with a promotional prize of a vintage style T-shirt upon completion of all the pillars. In total, Wendy’s gave away 100,000 vintage style T-shirts to Fans that went through the entire application. The first 50,000 were given out within 2 hours and 47 minutes beating all expectation and we saw similar results two weeks later with the second 50,000 T-shirts.
