Daily C Scrabble – A Game Brought Unexpected Success

 uncategorized 13 March 2017

What Happened
Wei Chuan released a new packaging design for Daily C with one large Chinese character on each bottle to interact with consumers in the form of scrabble and make new phrases for further communication among consumers.  The brand’s idea is to attract consumers attention in low season for juice, and hope they can get creative with the scrabble and buy more packages to generate a whole sentence. There were some unpleasant combinations shared online (e.g. “You are sick every year” showed up as a potential crisis), however through careful management from the brand the overall reaction from consumers was positive and the sales volume also surged with the new packaging. As a result, newly packaged Daily C successfully penetrated the young customer group and 722 related WeChat articles received 5,331 reads and 125 likes on average.

It probably hasn’t escaped your attention that right now, “weibo” is the word on everyone’s lips, as the microblog is the hottest property in China’s digital landscape. Celebrities, fans, brands and consumers are coming together in what is the fastest growing community in China’s social space.
