ITC's YiPPee Noodles saw a 95% increase in brand association on Snapchat
The instant noodle category is extremely competitive and primarily caters to people in the 13-16 age range. ITC has found that this audience segment needs more options to choose from-continuous change, easy to make and variety in their snacks. Equipped with these key drivers, ITC’s instant noodles brand, YiPPee! Noodles introduced packaging which includes two flavour sachets per pack, making them the perfect ‘mood’ pack and thereby creating a noodle flavour choice for all of your moods.
The brand wanted to spread the message to its target audience and turned to Snapchat as the medium of choice to promote the product.
Considering the age of the target groups and the nature of the product, ITC determined that an interactive and engaging campaign would be the best way to spread the message. They decided to create a full scope marketing campaign on Snapchat by covering Story ads, Snap ads and a Biddable Lens.
The Biddable Lens created a memorable fun experience for the young Snapchatters while the ad placements helped improve reach and redirect traffic to a unique set of recipes curated by the brand to highlight unique product features like multiple flavours and non-lump texture.
Augmented Reality and gamification are revolutionising how brands engage with their target audiences especially Gen Z and millennials.
Instead of passively viewing ads, audiences now want experiences that bring the brand close to them and want to engage with the brand in creative ways.
According to the Snapchat Generation Report, Gen Z or The Snapchat Generation represents a new kind of shopper, one willing to immerse themselves in stories and experiences, and use the latest tech to their advantage. As a group, Snapchatters hold a whopping $4.4 trillion in global spending power. They’re willing to outspend non-Snapchatters on common purchases across every retail and service category. They consider big and small brands in equal measure.
