We Create Promotional Prize Mechanics for

Shopper, Retail and Packaging Activations

A promotional 'win mechanic' is a great way to get your brand noticed. The best ones encourage purchase, but also build loyalty, acquire first party data, & strengthen brand image.

We're a one stop shop for all types of promotions, from tried and tested text & win/web entry, to QR scan win, logo/pack scan win and immersive augmented reality.

We do everything from initial concepts, to design and technical build, right the way through to to prize fulfilment, sending out digital rewards & vouchers and managing consumer queries.

We are hands on so we'll also pitch in with approving T&Cs, liaising with printers and checking pack artwork and print materials.

Our automated workflows and platform approach enables us to deliver mechanics efficiently and affordably and securely to the latest GDPR and IT Security standards.

Everything we do is tailored to your budget, activity goals and target shopper/consumer/employee.

We have 20 years of delivering all types of shopper/consumer mechanics for brands and agencies, on trade, off-shelf, in-store, at home, on-pack, at events and everywhere else in between.

We aggregate learnings over multiple touch points, product categories, technologies and target audiences.

So, we know, what works where, and, what doesn't.

Barcode Scan Win Mechanics

Every product that is sold has a barcode on it and these ‘markers’ can be interpreted by a phone's camera as a link to purchase. So, if you are looking to run a promotion where you want people to buy your product and scan it for a chance to win then a ‘scan the barcode to win’ is a great option.

Barcode Scan Win Mechanics

Scanning barcode mechanics also work really well with events, on trade activations and sampling teams. We can also geo-tag and geo-lock all activations to ensure that only certain defined locations can take part or win prizes. Everything we do 'runs on the web' and we can seamlessly embed our tech into iPads or sampling teams phones for ease of deployment. *agreed not every product has a barcode on it, some products sold via multipacks don't, but, multipacks have barcodes on them, so we can track that pack/SKU!
