Jarritos Soda Spreads Cheer and Delights Fans with a 500 Christmas Tree Giveaway – Case Study

Jarritos Soda, the famous fruit flavored Mexican beverage, is quickly growing its brand presence on social media and in-store through the use of text to win type sweepstakes. Jarritos’s loyal fans on Facebook (2M) and Instagram (115K) responded with overwhelming enthusiasm and engagement at the announcement that they could win 1 of 500 natural trees delivered to their home during the month of November and early December.

The Right Prize

The sweepstakes sponsor, Tipp Distributors, wanted to engage Jarritos’s fans by delivering a little holiday cheer to their homes. As a Consumer packaged goods (CPG) brand, Jarritos’s target audience was the U.S. Hispanic market. Knowing that Hispanics are of overwhelmingly Christian based faiths, Jarritos knew the target audience would be placing gifts under a Christmas tree.

Brand X Marketing, the promotions agency behind the Christmas tree idea, saw an opportunity in offering a prize that the target market desired and had top-of-mind during the Holidays, -making the Prize a perfect-fit.

The Christmas trees were delivered to the winner’s home with a base and a Jarritos branded ornament. Delivery saved the winners (500 of them) the time and effort required to select, buy, and transport a tree, -making the Prize highly desirable as social media comments below attest.

Goal: Delight Fans and Boost Engagement

Brand X’s goals for their client were to deliver high sweepstakes participation rates and social engagement across Facebook and Instagram.

BrandX, reached out to Sweeppea for help launching their sweepstakes. To increase participation, Sweeppea leveraged their text to win platform in order to quickly and easily gather sweepstakes participants online and in-store.
