Bus ads amplified the chocolate bar brand campaign, working on complimenting both Social Media and Radio


The Challenge

The household brand wanted to raise awareness of its new chocolate bar, and ultimately drive consideration and purchase of their new product. 

The Execution

In October 2015, a household brand ran a Bus advertising campaign to raise national awareness of their new chocolate bar.
In order to capture the effectiveness of this campaign, we measured campaign metrics, in association with Dipsticks Research. The sample consisted of 750 women aged:

25-34: 20%, 35-44: 40%, 45-54: 40%
Test Sample: London / Key urban cities
Control Sample: Rest of UK

To measure the full effect of this campaign, we also looked at social media users and radio listeners, according to the brand’s media schedule.

The Results

Bus advertising worked to complement Radio and Social Media, resulting in a significant uplift in prompted brand awareness and purchase consideration. 

This was significantly higher among those exposed to Bus advertising as well as the other mediums, vs. those who were only exposed to Radio and/ or Social Media advertising.
