14 October 2010

October 11, 2010, Moscow - The "Barrel Of Impressions" by the SABMiller RUS brand "Zolotaya Bochka" won first place at the Moscow International Festival of interactive advertising and marketing RedApple MiXX-2010. "Barrel Of Impressions" received the gold medal of the festival in recognition for solution efficiency, creativity and innovation.

"Barrel Of Impressions" is a large-scale integrated campaign with its website WWW.BOCHKA.RU as a centerpiece. Project participants register at the website and compete for various prizes by collecting impressions hidden on the labels of "Zolotaya Bochka".

The mechanisms of a social network were used in the online-platform. The web platform of the project allows participants to keep blogs, comment on the blog of the project leader and other participants, and also communicate with other users in the forum, getting to know other participants and discuss collective impressions. The project leader - "face, eyes and hands" of the brand - initiates discussions and provides additional information on future impressions to find what will be coded on "Zolotaya Bochka" labels.

TV, print media, external ads, POSM, banner ads and context ads make up the all-Russian coverage of the campaign. The online-platform became an instrument to create involvement and ensure the loyalty of participants. The website is a center of communication that allows customers to stay connected 24/7, every day of the year. Very special attention was paid to social media and original Internet-communication.

"Barrel Of Impressions" was launched in March 2010, and today it proves its efficiency by increasingly attracting new participants.

"Barrel Of Impressions" is an unparalleled interactive campaign that proves its uniqueness for the brewing industry as well as for the Russian consumer goods market in general.
