Mexican Hot Sauce has taken a spicy grip on Denmark. Together with our amazing group of micro influencers, Cholula wanted to spread the word like wildfire on social media to impact purchase behaviour. Ay, caramba!
Cholula hot sauce is the real deal when it comes to authentic Mexican dining, completing every dish from stir fry to hot pot dinners. Danes have always used Tabasco hot sauce, but our culture is on an uprise towards more exotic and flavourful discoveries. This shift has possibly begun from Danish mega influencer Chili Klaus’ show on YouTube along with the inspiring #foodporn dishes on Instagram’s Explorer page.
This is how we knew it would be a successful campaign.
The influencers were asked to show their followers how to leave their comfort zone and introduce Cholula hot sauce in their everyday kitchen adventures. This resulted in a refreshing selection of personal and authentically composed images that offered a unique food and lifestyle composition, as well as including the Cholula bottle (stealing the spotlight in a stylish matter).
All influencers bought their own Cholula hot sauce in a local supermarket or grocery store in order to participate in this Post on Demand campaign. This ensured solid in-store sales and impacted sales behavior while minimizing handling costs for the client. Altogether, this was an effective and efficient campaign through our community app.
20 posts by 20 micro-influencers were accepted by the brand and posted on Instagram with the traceable campaign hashtag #addflavour plus the redirecting tag @cholulahotsaucedk for increased traffic and potential followers.
This Post on Demand campaign united 20 inspiring micro influencers from Denmark to ignite the taste buds and kitchen shelves of Denmark with spicy hot sauce from Cholula.
Collectively, they held a combined reach of 164.859 people, and their peppery posts got 4,077 likes and comments, which amounted to an average engagement rate of 7,6%. The best engagement rate was a striking 30,1%.
