Cadburys get a big Thumbs Up!

To celebrate their 1 millionth ‘like’ on Facebook, Cadburys Chocolate decided to show their gratitude to their fans.

So thinking outside the box, They (or their creative agency) came up with a pretty clever idea. They built a huge chocolate thumbs up, of course. The genius of the idea was the 48 hour live feed of the construction through Facebook. They encouraged fans to engage, they reacted live to requests and even brought in a ‘super fan’ to place the final piece of the thumb.

The result was a social media dream:

  • 35% of their fans actively engaged
  • 40,000 new likes in the 48 hour period
  • Total reach of 82 Million

Not only are the figures impressive, but they strengthened brand awareness and created a feel good factor around the brand. Check out the video of the construction. It’s awesome.
