McCormick Canada teamed up with Offerpop to launch their highly successful “McCormick Online Cook Off” contest, which invited users to share their best recipes with the brand for a chance to win some really great prizes. Instead of targeting a user base that is already highly saturated with direct competitors, McCormick Canada decided to target an entirely new, untapped market — second generation Filipino-Canadians with a highly customized campaign. By coupling an extremely easy and fun to enter contest with their in-depth customer analysis, McCormick Canada was able to create a wildly successful experience that greatly increased their unit sales year-over-year.
In May 2016, Offerpop commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate how marketers view the importance of UGC in building brand awareness and improving marketing and advertising campaigns. Forrester tested the hypothesis that marketers who inspire the creation and sharing of UGC and leverage it at each point of the customer life cycle see significant benefits.
SCOUT leveraged Offerpop's commerce functionality to build brand awareness among individual consumers, use user-generated content as a form of product review, and ultimately increase ecommerce site performance. Their #scoutbags campaign has generated thousands of dollars in sales in just four months.
