Bulmers shortlisted for 2022 International Loyalty Awards with their innovative chatbot solution
As with many D2C brands, identifying opportunities to target and engage consumers can be difficult. Bulmers were looking for an innovative solution between their brand and current Bulmers lovers – as well as new customers to form fresh relationships.
Bulmers launched a geo-targeted chatbot on Facebook and Instagram feeds around Ember Inns, Stonegate and Sizzling pub locations for 2 weeks. By engaging with the bot, consumers could claim a free bottle of Bulmers Original and receive directions to the nearest participating pub, they also had the option to opt-in for news and future offers.
4.8k people requested a coupon and of those, 858 redeemed (18% issuance to redemption rate, 3% above the industry average) with 224 opting into future marketing communications.
How Eagle Eye Helped:
The omnichannel campaign was powered by Eagle Eye AIR, from delivering coupons (QR codes) to consumers which could be clipped to their digital wallet, through to the seamless redemption at the POS and the management of the subsequent campaign data. The data provided insights into which social media channels and participating venues generated the most redemptions, helping Bulmers learn how to optimise future media spend. Eagle Eye also controlled the ability for consumers to be restricted to one bottle per person in the campaign to help eliminate fraud.
BrewDog's Lost Lager campaign
BrewDog ran an awareness campaign to encourage lager drinkers in selected Mitchells & Butler venues to try Lost Lager.
Campaign posters were placed in O’Neill’s pubs around the country offering a reward of a free pint of Lost Lager. Customers texted “Lost” to a special campaign number and received an SMS reply with a link to a landing page where they completed a survey question to receive a code that could be redeemed there and then.
Guinness launches seamless user redemption
Guinness has launched a new campaign offering customers a free pint at participating Greene King pubs to facilitate multi-stream marketing activations via a seamless mobile consumer journey.

Following a link through a Guinness campaign landing page, users enter valid email contact details and postcode, and verify their age. They were then prompted to download their unique, one time and location-specific voucher straight to their Apple Passbook or Android equivalent Wallet. Vouchers can be redeemed at the point of sale in their nearest Greene King pub.
Guinness also used the campaign to retarget existing customers with its free pints promotion along with rugby ticket giveaways.

Strategically geo-targeted Adshel poster sites and social media ads direct people to a website landing page where they can obtain a voucher for a free pint of Carlsberg. The voucher can then be redeemed from Stonegate pubs, who run over 772 pubs and bars, as well up to 500 independent venues across the UK.
How Eagle Eye helped
