Two flavors of L chip, cheesy garlic bread and kettle-cooked wasabi ginger was created for a “Do us a flavor” marketing campaign. This was done by incorporating real-time marketing. People have to submit their flavors’ names, which can have up to three ingredients and various styles of chips. The company receives various tweets after a 3-month period of submission. They offered $1 million for the best creator of flavors and chips’ style. The finalized flavor would be shipped and out for sale in three months. Thus, L Company contest’s goal was 1.2 million but actually, they got 3.8 million submissions and 22.5 million Facebook visits. This led to a 12% increase in sales.
Characters in given case:
