There are two common objectives used to run interactive marketing campaigns on digital. This is a campaign for engagement at the MOFU level and a campaign to increase sales at the BOFU level.
Engagement campaigns are not about immediately boosting sales, but about engaging customers by offering something valuable for audiences. For this reason, if sales do not increase immediately, but because of the rewards and attention of gamification, those who do not know your brand/product will gain awareness through this campaign. Engagement from the campaign can establish a relationship between the brand and the customer who has not yet purchased. Customers who already know the brand will be excited and fun when they join the campaign, remembering your brand and getting stronger brand recall, and will be ready to choose your brand when they consider buying your brand’s product category. Therefore, in addition to Affective emotional ads that can make an emotional connection with the audiences that usually run at the Consideration stage, such gamification engagement campaigns can help to build desire for your brand.
Sales promotion campaigns are, as we all know, a form of lottery (lucky draw) that buys our product. By using tech, it is much more efficient and effective than traditional campaigns due to the benefits such as can retrieve the data of the winners, can generate leads by adding an opt-in form, and real-time control over the prize. Instead of trying to win a lottery by buying your product, you can use a coupon campaign to get traffic to your store or website by spreading coupon voucher codes. rangoon.tech is offering digital sales tools such as Spin & Win and Digital Scratch Card at affordable prices.
Any retailer knows that the key to creating — and then replicating — successful ecommerce campaigns is measuring their effectiveness. Whether they track revenue or total customer acquisition, retailers have a number of metrics at their disposal to help them estimate the marketing ROI of any “conventional” ad they launch.
Augmented reality (AR) campaigns, which are growing in popularity (mobile AR ad placement, for example, is predicted to go from $1.36 billion in 2020 to $6.68 billion by 2025), are no different.
Even though AR is a relatively new medium, that doesn’t mean that retailers that use it are left in the dark when it comes to evaluating the performance of their campaigns. Quite the opposite. Through AR analytics such as impressions, engagement rate, and dwell time, businesses can measure the exact impact their AR experiences have on their customers — and their bottom line.
“I’ve been in advertising a long time and I’ve never heard of 70% of people asking for more ads of any kind in any context,” said Jake Moskowitz, head of data strategy and the Emodo Institute at Ericsson.
The fact that people enjoy looking at AR ads means that they generally spend more time interacting with them and are more likely to remember them. Our own research shows that the average dwell time on an AR ad is 75 seconds — 4 times longer than the average dwell time on mobile video. Furthermore, AR experiences typically result in 70% higher memory recall.
Users that really like an AR ad may choose to show it to their family or friends. According to Media Post, people share more than half of AR ads they see with others, making AR campaigns one of the easiest ways for brands to encourage word-of-mouth.
Looking at the above benefits of AR, incorporating this technology into your ecommerce strategy may seem like a no-brainer. But how can you actually prove that AR campaigns are working for your business?
The immersive nature of AR can make the metrics you’ve previously used seem redundant. The good news is that, as we have mentioned already, there are plenty of other metrics you can track to measure the efficacy of your AR campaign, be it an AR-enhanced product page, an immersive ad, or a social media filter.
Below are all the AR analytics metrics we provide in our own AR commerce unit, and which you should think about tracking too. Remember that there isn’t one specific metric that is better than others at indicating the success of your campaign. Rather, the power lies in taking a more holistic approach. By looking at all the different data points available, you can draw powerful conclusions about your AR campaigns.
The following AR analytics metrics are useful for tracking shopper interactions on your site’s product pages:
Clickthrough rate: The percentage of users who clicked through to view a product in 3D or AR. An important metric, the clickthrough rate tells you how many people are interested in visualising your products in 3D/AR.
Dwell time: How long 3D/AR viewers spent on a page compared to non-3D/AR viewers. This metric lets you know by how much time AR increases engagement. For instance, we found that after enhancing their product pages with 3D/AR, one of our furniture clients increased their dwell time by 1 minute compared to similar product pages without 3D/AR. And Rollie Nation experienced a 28.45% increase in time shoppers spent on the product page after incorporating AR.
Unique/Return users: How many 3D/AR shoppers were new/return users vs non-3D/AR viewers. Another crucial metric, this one lets you know whether your 3D/AR experience encouraged people to return to your store.
Return rate: The number of customers who returned products after seeing them in AR compared to non-3D/AR viewers. This metric tells you whether or not visualising products in 3D/AR can reduce product returns. After the pet brand Gunner Kennels developed 3D models of its dog crates that customers could view in AR, their returns decreased by 5%.
3D display ad metrics
The following AR analytics metrics are important for 3D display ads, like Google Swirl:
Impressions: How many people were shown your 3D ad.
Engagement: The percentage of users that engaged with the 3D ad, whether by rotating the 3D model or expanding the ad. The 3D Google Swirl ad we developed for MG Motor drove an 8x (800%) higher engagement rate when compared to rich media and a 25% higher engagement rate than automotive vertical benchmarks.
Clickthrough rate: The number of people that clicked on the ad after they were shown it.
Full-screen: The number of viewers that made the ad full-screen. This metric indicates high engagement with the ad.
Interaction time: How much time people spent interacting with a 3D ad, for example, rotating the product in the ad or zooming in and expanding the creative. Overall, people spent 4,600 hours interacting with the MG Motor 3D Swirl Display ad.
Social commerce metrics
The following AR analytics metrics are crucial for understanding how your AR social commerce campaigns are performing.
Impressions: The number of people that saw your campaign. The AR filter we created for Maybelline’s ‘#LiftMyMood’ campaign, which had users trying different lip shades as a way to boost their mood, resulted in more than three billion impressions.
Captures: How many people captured an AR experience by taking a photo or video of it.
Shares: The number of users that shared an AR experience or effect with their friends and followers.
Engagement Rate: How many users interacted with the AR experience, for instance, liked it, commented on it, or shared it.
Dwell Time: How long on average people looked at the AR experience.
Unique Users/Return Users: How many return users (i.e., people who have interacted with your brand before) and unique users (i.e., people who are new to your brand) saw and engaged with your AR campaign.
Conversions: The percentage of people that saw your campaign and completed a desired action, for example, entered a contest, shared it with their friends, or made a purchase. The AR experience we developed for ViacomCBS to publicise ‘The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run’ in the US resulted in 181,000 entries being made to weekly sweepstakes and a 29% lift in sales.
Measuring your AR campaign with AR analytics
As AR continues to evolve, it is likely that the number of metrics available to brands for tracking their campaigns will also increase. However, even right now, AR analytics provides measurable and accurate user engagement data that can give businesses a good indication as to whether their AR campaign is working or not.
Bottega Verde is the No.1 beauty brand in Italy, with over 6 million customers worldwide. The company produces and sells cosmetics based on natural active ingredients. Their product assortment consists of extensive collections in skincare, nature products, makeup, fragrances and more.
With the help of Coupontools’ mobile marketing software, Bottega Verde Italy was able to create multiple campaigns (with and without gamification) to distribute their special offers to their customers and target audience. They decided to use Coupontools’ regular digital coupons, “Scratch and Win” coupons and “Spin and Win” coupons. All three of the campaigns contained different offers. Bottega Verde Italy used Facebook ads to target their audience. Not only were the offers distributed on their website, they were also sent out via bulk SMS messages to their database, wherein each message contained a link to a coupon.
Why Bottega Verde Italy Chose Coupontools Bottega Verde Italy chose to use Coupontools’ platform because its flexibility allowed them to set up different campaigns using many different approaches.
They liked Coupontools because: – Inside each coupon, the redeemable locations can be shown on Google maps – The number of redemptions can be tracked per location – Each coupon contained a unique barcode which could be scanned at the redeemable locations – The multilanguage system allowed them to later extend their marketing campaigns to other countries outside of Italy, where they are also active – Through multi-channel distribution, they were able to distribute their coupons through any digital marketing channel, including SMS messages, social media, websites, etc., all through a single platform
The Results Bottega Verde Italy achieved very positive results from their various mobile marketing campaigns with Coupontools. Example results for the month of July 2018: 64490 views, 10055 plays, and 8803 claims
Melvita is an international retailer of durable body, face and home products. Since it’s foundation in 1983 they’ve only been growing. Developing natural and organic products have always been their main focus. That’s one of the reasons they were searching for a more durable coupon approach rather than using traditional paper. Getting in touch with Coupontools was a first, great step to make this happen.
How the campaign worked: First, Melvita created a regular mobile coupon using the convenient Coupontools software.
For the distribution of the coupon, Melvita Hongkong chose Facebook. They have 285k page likes, which resulted in a strong, natural reach for the campaign. Customers who stumbled on the coupon, had to register themselves in order to unlock the discount. MelvitaHK used the social login option (Facebook or mail) which really simplified the user registration. Users could also register in the traditional way, by entering their personal details.
When successfully registered, the customer has access to the discount. They had the choice to either use it immediately or save2email, to use it later. This coupon page also included an overview of all the participating redeem locations.
For the validation of the digital coupon, clients have to show their coupon to the cashier at the redeem location. The cashier enters the unique location password on the customer’s mobile device for secure validation of the mobile coupon, guaranteeing every coupon can only be used once.
Why this approach: MelvitaHK opted for this approach to enrich their customer database. Using mobile it’s not about handing free discounts. It’s giving away strategic discounts with a return of investment in the shape of customer data. Using Facebook as a distribution method, resulted in a very accessible discount coupon for the audience. The validation process, using unique passwords for every redeem location, made it possible for MelvitaHK to track the Coupon validations per location. It granted insights such as which location is the most popular.
The Campaign Summary:
MelvitaHK created the coupon using the Coupontools software

Tablesfull is a restaurant-focused agency. They are helping restaurant owners to optimize their marketing efforts. Tablesfull has invented its proper strategy to do so. They aim to sell for three visits instead of only one. After three visits, the chances almost double of becoming a regular.
Campaign setup: One particular campaign Tablesfull is proud of is their case with a pizza restaurant. The restaurant was looking for a solution to raise engagement, bring in more visitors, and eventually boost sales. Tablesfull came with a concrete plan to make that happen.
Tablesfull used Coupontools to create digital coupons for the pizza restaurant. They created multiple types of coupons: regular coupons, scratch & win, and spin wheels. For the first coupon, they focused on data capture. Before the coupon user was able to redeem the coupon, he had to enter his details. This way, the pizza restaurant kickstarted a proper customer database. It allowed them to reach the same audience again directly, an audience that’s likely to interact with your promotions.
For the distribution of their first coupon, they mainly used Facebook lead ads. Because they hadn’t any personal data yet, this was the best option. Later on, they would use the personal data to communicate with the audience directly.
By using mobile device validation system with a unique location password, Tablesfull guaranteed fraud-proof campaigns. Because the pizzeria had multiple locations, every redeem location had its unique validation password. This way, it was easy to track which coupon was validated in which restaurant.
To track is to know: The campaign resulted in many exciting campaign statistics such as open rate, claim rate, redeem rate and which restaurant was the most popular. An overview of this helps you understand where people would drop out in your coupon campaign. If you notice that you have a high open-rate but a low claim rate, you may be asking too much data compared to the discount value you’re offering in return. Apart from the campaign data, the campaign resulted in a lot of personal data as well.
This blog is copied on Burger King and Coupon Tools Case Study.
Kout Food Group is a Kuwaiti-based company, founded in 1982, operating in Kuwait, the United Kingdom, and Kurdistan-Iraq. In Kuwait, it operates franchises of Burger King, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, Applebee’s… Let’s deep-dive into the Burger King case and how Coupontools contributed to it.
Campaign setup: The original campaign idea was as follows. Kout Food wants to distribute digital game coupons in a fast-food restaurant. In this way, they want to boost spending in the fast-food restaurant but at the same time offer a unique experience to the visitors.
The distribution of the coupon was done in the fast-food restaurant using a QR code. Posters, provided with the QR code, hang up in the fast-food restaurant. Visitors scan this QR code. Then the game coupon opens in the browser.
The user can play the scratch & win coupon on his smartphone. Almost every player wins a prize. Most prizes were like a free menu or sandwich. However, there were also some grand prizes to win; like iPhone, ear pods, I watches. After the player sees what prize he has won, he is asked for his phone number to obtain the prize. If the player does not fill this in, he will not be able to claim his prize.
For safe validation and thus prevention of fraud, validation with own imported validation codes was set up. In this way, Burger King completed the digital coupon validation using QR Code Validation System.
Digital always has a unique advantage. It is fully traceable. It gives Burger King a thorough insight into the success of the campaign. It clearly showed that it was a hugely successful campaign. The validation ratio was extremely high. Almost every player who won and then carried out the claim gesture also redeemed the coupon.

Spin the wheel is often used to great effect to improve customer engagement. The reason is simple enough – you are providing a personalized experience that will evoke an emotional response and desire to win! Customers love to feel involved, and part of a wider story, and when brands recognize that and reward customers for either their loyalty or simply for interacting with the brand, they’re more likely to stay around.
If customers were to compare their personal experience on a website offering personalized incentives and interactive promotions, compared to a website that offers no additional experience, users are likely to interact, support, and purchase from a brand that puts them at the forefront of their experience. By recognizing your customer, and providing them with a journey that goes beyond simply showing your products, you are capitalizing on their experience providing incentives that warrant an emotive response to excite, enthuse and inspire your customer to get to know your website, learn more about what you offer and most importantly, make a purchase with you rather than a competitor.

Can you customize the design of spin the wheel?

Why use a spin the wheel campaign?
Boosts user engagement
This may seem an obvious one, but it is one of the main reasons why brands launch a spin the wheel campaign – to boost user engagement. You are immediately providing an exciting and unique way for potential customers to interact with your products. Customers will feel incentivized to interact with your campaign, share it with friends, and play for the chance to win something. There’s a competitive streak in all of us, and you can increase the number of customers who shop with you regularly thanks to the incentives, rewards and tailored campaigns that can get people on board with a chance to win real prizes.
Builds awareness and increases reach
A spin the wheel campaign has multiple benefits, as you can build greater awareness alongside other existing campaigns and increase your reach in a way that may not have been approached before by a brand. With spin the wheel campaigns, a brand can embed exciting initiatives across multiple channels that demonstrates your ability to recognize when customers want more.
Drives engagement and influences positive customer behaviour
Customers are more likely to stick around when you offer them something. Whether that’s the chance to win something, or receive discounts on further purchases – whatever the prize, the chance to win them alone will be enough to encourage a response and see them interact with your brand and get involved. With every spin a winner, you’ll see a boost in conversions, no matter what you’re offering. Site users love a discount, so providing them with a discount sees them feel valued, and seeing them interact with your site to see their prize or discount become a reality. It is a win-win situation – customers love it, and companies see guaranteed interaction and more conversion.
Gathers valuable audience data, opt-in data and qualifies leads
Another great thing about spin the wheel campaigns? The fact it gives amazing insight into your customers! It gives you valuable audience data and can provide a basis for how you interact with customers from that point onwards. Gaining an insight into customer behavior is invaluable. Knowledge is power, so they say, and this valuable data can help you create targeted, focused campaigns that will go the extra mile and make a difference with the way customers interact with your brand. What better way to gain valuable insight into how your customers interact with your brand than with a campaign that you can track? Depending on how you design your campaign, you can track its success on various platforms, decipher which methods are most effective, and learn more about the platforms where your target audience spends their time. This can help build a solid picture of your customer base; you can learn what works, what doesn’t, and how you can tailor future campaigns to tap into the audience’s psyche and consumer preferences and behavior.
Personalizes your brand message and experience
There are so many brands out there at the moment; so many competitors to consider. Initiatives like a spin the wheel campaign can help keep your brand top of mind compared to competitors and are a subtle reminder that you’re not going anywhere and value your customer. Spin the wheel games can be personally tailored to the recipient, with opt-in options and automation meaning the campaign needs minimal maintenance once it has launched. All this personalization not only shows a level of detail and care regarding customer experience, but it is more likely to increase customer retention and loyalty.
Increases customer retention and loyalty
Interacting with your audience in such a personalized way shows you’ve listened. You’ve taken the time to understand what users want, and how they interact with your products and services. The reward from this? You’ll see loyal customers return, even more so when they recognize that they’ve been recognized themselves! In addition to this, offering rewards and prizes demonstrate how much you value a customer- you are offering a chance for them to win real prizes, without the customer having to do anything- simply sit and play. People love free stuff. A very basic statement, but a true statement, and as long as you operate and interact in a way that offers incentives and rewards, you’ll see your brand grow a customer base who can see that you care.
Customer loyalty and trust and reaches a wider audience
The way brands communicate with their customers is an ever-changing, ever-evolving thing. It’s important to be aware of who your audience is and how they interact with your products and services. Traditional styles of customer service won’t cut anymore. Customers seek brands that demonstrate their ability to keep on top of trends and adapt to changing customer needs. Demonstrating this is enough to place you one step ahead of competitors, and not only find new customers but keep them. If you were to interact with a forward-thinking brand, offering interactive experiences that recognized you as a customer and worked to keep you on board, you’d be more likely to stick around too!
Speaks to the next generation
Digital interaction is growing at a rapid pace, with a majority of interactions set to be online, customers are expecting interactions to be unique, clever, and receptive to their wants and needs. Incentives and campaigns that consider the customer as an individual are far more likely to do well because they are tailored to that person’s needs. Sounds simple enough, but a standard automated response that offers an incentive won’t nearly do as well as a completely personalized, considered experience that puts the customer first.
Increases exposure and product awareness
If you are launching a new product, and need a way to shout about it that’s going to see a response, a spin the wheel campaign can be a nice alternative to traditional product launch campaign methods. Spin the wheel online games can see audiences from multiple platforms engaging with your site directly. This incentivizes audiences to then stick around and explore your site, and you can go one step further and cultivate a spin the wheel campaign around your new product. You can gain great product exposure, and gather important data about how customers are interacting with a new product, too.
Collect leads, grow email subscriber base
Opt-in campaigns such as a spin the wheel campaign from BeeLiked can also help you nurture your customer base and expand it, and grow a subscriber base with an opt-in option to incentivize site visitors to get involved in future campaigns for another chance to win. Responsive, designed and easy to integrate, you can put a new spin (pun not intended) on your email marketing campaign and amplify what you get out of your campaign, to get customers excited, rather than exasperated.

We generally divided marketing funnel into awareness, consideration and conversion. According to each stage, we can run AR campaigns to achieve marketing goals.
Raising brand awareness with AR campaign
To raise brand awareness, Brands can produce AR filter that relates to seasonal events or festivals or celebrity or entertainment or emotional connection. If the audiences use this Brand’s AR filter, capture and share it on social media, their friends can see that Brand’s content through photos or videos. In this way, Brand Awareness can be generated and many chances to go viral with these lovely AR. The ability to create content which the users can relate to and thus can expand the extent to which customers are able to recall or recognize a brand (which is the definition of brand awareness) is the main strength of social media AR marketing.
Boosting engagement from fans using AR Filter and AR Game
When we want to run a customer involvement campaign, Facebook AR Game can be used to boost engagement from fans. Photos or Videos contest (User-generated Content) campaigns enhanced with AR filter can also be run to boost engagement and then raise brand awareness in users’ networks. AR effects enabling user-generated content and AR games are those AR effects that can be used to organize fresh and innovative contests. Today, most brands run interactive marketing campaigns to engage with their customers and increase brand recall. Thanks to the reward system, people love to win a chance in a contest by engaging in interaction with the brand. Thus, these types of campaigns assist to achieve the overall objective of the brand (Brand Equity and Market Share).
Boosting sales with entertaining benefits
Thanks to the fact that every AR effect has its own link, some brands decide to put QR codes on their packaging or use target tracking to activate AR effects by clients who bought their product. This is a great way to add a special, fun bonus or give the customer a chance to participate in the AR contest and win a prize. Create a compelling offer for your customers (enhanced with Augmented Reality Customer Experience) at online/offline point-of-purchase or at the store location. In this way, you will have differentiation on customer experience than your competitors. (Lenslist)
We, rangoon.tech, always help marketers to achieve their goals using our blended knowledge of technology and marketing. We are always open to discuss about interactive marketing campaigns.
AR allows e-commerce customers to preview products or experience services in their own environment and on their own time, before electing to make a purchase. Using AR, your customers can preview products and be more likely to pick the right product the first time.
Here are the top four ways that e-commerce stores are currently using AR.
1. Social media filters.
We mentioned Snapchat up top. If you’ve been on there or Instagram Stories lately, you’ve probably used an AR filter. These filters were once used ‘just for fun’, but over the years there has been a rise in the number of brands who are jumping on the AR bandwagon.
Why are brands using social media AR filters? There are three key benefits:
Increased awareness of a brand or product: It is a great way to showcase a new product by telling people to ‘test’ how it’ll look on them.
Increased engagement: AR filters are a good way to boost audience engagement. For example, you can encourage people to tag you in their stories when they use the filter to enter a competition.
“Wow” factor: There are so many brands on social media right now. Adding an AR filter can help showcase just what makes you special.
Remember back in 2017 when Ben & Jerry’s created a highly interactive Facebook AR filter game to launch a new ice cream flavor? The game encouraged people to ‘catch’ marshmallows in their mouth. This type of filter takes more work to bring to market but it is endlessly entertaining and shareable.
We MakeUp, the Italian cosmetics brand, created an AR filter on Facebook that allowed users to ‘try-on’ different shades of its lipstick. Users could find their perfect match and make the purchase right away.
The creative involved a video that demonstrated the filter’s use, encouraging users to try it for themselves. The campaign was a huge success with53% higher CTR and a 28-point lift in sales when compared to video-only ads.
2. Preview placement.
Buying the wrong item is quite common in ecommerce because the customer can’t physically handle the product. For example, the shopper might buy a sofa set and later realize that it just doesn’t look good with the rest of the décor. That’s where preview placement can help.
It gives customers a real-time glimpse of what the product will look like when placed in their environment.
For example, Sony Electronics recently launched the Envision TV AR app as a way to “try before you buy”. This means that homeowners could preview how a Sony TV will fit on the wall or in the space that they had in mind for placement. With the app, users could accurately determine which TV size was perfect for their space by using a smartphone and the Envision TV AR app.
Etsy, an online marketplace famous for giving creators a platform to sell their art. With so many options it can be tough to select a print or painting, let alone visualize how it will look in a space. That’s why Etsy is helping consumers preview wall art in their own spaces with a new AR feature on its iOS app. So, you no longer have to rely on imagination alone when wondering if a certain print would look good above your couch.
Here’s another example of preview placement.
Burrow, a DTC furniture brand, uses AR to help customers visualize how their couches will fit in their living rooms. Their Burrow at Home app uses ARKit to place true-to-scale 3D models of Burrow’s couches in photos taken on customers’ iPhones and iPads.
Not every brand can offer a home try-on facility likeRevelry that allows dress samples and swatches shipped right to your door. But virtual try-on is an alternative that’s trying to close the gap.
AR helps online shoppers understand what they’re buying and how precisely items from clothing to cosmetics will work for them. Virtual try-on allows them to see how the item will look before adding it to the shopping cart.
Today, there’s a slew of brands who have embraced AR technology to offer virtual try-on functionality to the customers. For example, online jewelry retailer Kollectin’s app launched an AR feature called “Xperience” to let customers virtually try on jewelry.
Similarly, eyeglass maker Warby Parker is also playing in the AR space, allowing people to see what a pair of glasses looks like on their faces before making a purchase.
4. Interactive user manuals.
Today, user guides are becoming a lot smarter and interactive. With digital transformation on their shoulders, ecommerce brands are creating interactive user guides that run on top of their website or software. They help users better understand how their product works.
An interactive user manual responds to user actions, providing on-page contextual support when using a software, website, or application. It brands to automate customer support and onboarding and provide more autonomy to the consumer when using a new platform for the first time.
Many AR user manual apps scan the product and indicate the buttons in the real-life environment using graphical arrows and animations with text. While others like Ask Mercedes use Augmented Reality to let you explore the functions of numerous operating elements in a playful way.
