Sprint Runs Smartphone Giveaway with Chirpify

Chirpify has teamed up with Sprint to amplify the awareness around their new smartphones for the holidays.

It all started with a simple strategy —use an #ActionTag on social to ask fans to #Enter to win 1 of 5 new devices over 5 days. By simply RTing a Sprint post or by clicking on the branded campaign page through Facebook, users could participate easily with just a few clicks.

A strong offer and simplified user experience lead to quick and measurable results for the brand:

There was no need for a large Twitter media buy or banner ads— this campaign took off overnight because Sprint capitalized on social media user behavior, allowing people to participate in-steam and on the go, turning that participation into conversion. Of the thousands of people participating in this giveaway, over 70% were doing so via mobile.

Because of Chirpify’s message automation technology and mobile landing page, Sprint was able to:

1. Follow up with every user who engaged (retweeted, clicked) on the campaign post with the link to enter the giveaway

2. Convert those actions into completed entries using a mobile-optimized landing page for easy conversion

Making the process even more seamless, Chirpify created a new feature for this campaign— allowing people to checkout the contest entry form as a guest while still capturing the social IDs tied to email address for future Sprint outreach.

While the single campaign messaging point on social is generating over 1MM impressions, thousands of engagement points and major fan growth for Sprint’s social channels— the major win is within the number of completed entries and data captured in a very short period of time.

This is just the beginning. This contest Launched on Monday Dec 9th and ends 11:59pm CTS on Friday Dec 13th. See it in action or join in the fun, here. Stay tuned for final campaign results!
