Insights, Strategy and the Idea:

Consumers are spoilt for choices when choosing beef burgers. Other than our iconic Big Mac, competitors each have their own beef forte – Burger King’s Whopper and Carl’s Junior Beef range. We need to build our beef equity and achieve a) 30% increase in total beef UTC. b) increase overall sales by 10% over same period in 2009 c) To gain at least 8,000 fans and garner minimally 3,000 votes on Facebook d) To make social media come alive Our audience are: Beef burger consumers seeking quality beef burger experience to satisfy cravings. They believe cheese is key to complement a juicy beef burger. Given islandwide connectivity, local news phenomenon is picked up speedily and spreads to a national talking point overnight Idea: Create a nationwide social media debate that can leverage on Outdoor’s mass reach to generate higher talkability. The “Beef Rules” or “Cheese Rocks” National Debate
