Tradewinds Tea Campaign

 Tradewinds had its eye on expanding its strong mid-west presence to a new key market — Chicago. The brand needed to make a splash and let the windy city know that every sip of Tradewinds is an escape to paradise.

THE SOLUTION

THE SOLUTION

Working with an integrated agency team, we concepted the “Pop-up Paradise” campaign idea. We set up paradise in the middle of downtown Chicago on a Friday afternoon and then gave fans a chance to win their own piece of paradise all summer long.

THE EVENT

THE EVENT

With 14 tons of sand, music, beach games and plenty of ice cold tea, we let the city know Tradewinds was here to keep them refreshed. Swag was handed out in exchange for social mentions and we made sure to drive them online to continue the fun.

THE CAMPAIGN HUB

THE CAMPAIGN HUB

Driving to digital from the event, we introduced our summer sweeps where we gave away pieces of paradise — fans could enter to win everything from a trip to paradise or fire pit to a one-year supply of tea. We also create tips and tricks from paradise in order to give them something to share and engage with once they were on the site.

THE SOCIAL ENGAGEMENT

THE SOCIAL ENGAGEMENT

Paid social posts on Facebook and Twitter kept the fun going and helped us reach even more of our target long after the kick off event. We promoted the sweeps alongside paradise content to engage Tradewinds fans throughout the midwest.
