Cadbury Launches Personalized Videos for New Market and Product Line

Cadbury Launched Two Successful Personalized Video Campaigns: One to Gain Foothold in a New Market, the Other to Introduce a Product Line

Cadbury, a Mondeléz International Inc. brand, is the second largest confectionery brand in the world, operating in more than 50 countries worldwide. They’re well known for their clever and creative marketing and advertising campaigns. But they might have outdone themselves this time.

Cadbury has launched two successful campaigns using Idomoo Personalized Video to raise brand awareness, increase market penetration and connect emotionally with customers.

The first campaign, focusing on premium Cadbury Glow gift chocolate, was launched in India where chocolate gifting represents only 5%-7% of the total market, compared with 15%-35% in other areas. Cadbury’s goal was to increase their market penetration in India for this type of product. 

Their second campaign was targeted at Australian customers. The company wanted to introduce consumers to new flavors in its Dairy Milk line and create a personal and emotional consumer-brand connection.

Penetrating the Chocolate-as-a-Gift Market in India

Cadbury’s India-based campaign for Cadbury Glow was designed to promote the idea that chocolate was a thoughtful gift to give. In India, chocolate didn’t have a strong footing in the gift-giving market compared to other places in the world.

To encourage the idea of chocolate as a gift, Cadbury India launched an integrated social video marketing campaign centered around Idomoo’s Personalized Video platform.

In the campaign, users could automatically create a Personalized Video that incorporated photographs and names pulled from their Facebook profile. Users started their journey by visiting the Cadbury Glow landing page, linking it to their Facebook profile and entering the phone number of the gift recipient.

The recipient could then view the video when they received a box of Cadbury Glow chocolate, either through a QR code or by entering their phone number on the Cadbury Glow page.

This Cadbury campaign was also supported by a multichannel integrated digital effort, including social media featuring Rajkummar Rao and Aditi Rao Hydari, well-known Indian celebrities. All in all, it’s one of the best Personalized Video marketing examples we’ve seen.

Introducing New Flavors in Australia

Cadbury’s Australian campaign, created to build interest in the new Dairy Milk flavors, was equally engaging.

A “Flavour Matcher” app, designed using Idomoo’s Personalized Video platform, matched users with one of 12 Cadbury flavors based on data such as their age, location and interests. The participants then received Personalized Videos celebrating their Flavour Match. This integrated with their Facebook profile photo and included a CTA to share the video using a hashtag.

Customers were exposed to the campaign through various paid and unpaid channels using creative content designed by Saatchi and Saatchi, Cadbury’s advertising agency.

The Results

Cadbury found both campaigns to be incredibly successful. A whopping 90% of viewers watched their Personalized Video to completion, reflecting a high level of engagement and personal investment. Over 12% of viewers went on to share their video with friends on social media.

The Secret to a Customer-Centric Digital CX

A version of this article appeared on CMSWire. You can read it here. Looking for the secret to a better, more customer-focused digital CX? You’re not alone. Brands are increasingly embracing digital customer experiences across the customer journey. But there’s a serious gap between how effective brands think these experiences are and how effective they actually are. According to one recent study, while 53% of brands believe that their customers are satisfied with their digital self-service tools, only 15% of customers agree. In another report, PWC found that 54% of consumers believe CX in most companies needs improvement. Given all this investment poured into delivering an exponentially growing variety of digital customer experiences, what isn’t working?

Dynamic Videos and Mortgages: Why They Work Well Together

Personalized Video and mortgages — how (and why) do they fit together so well? It might not seem like an obvious connection, but let me explain. For the last 10 years before joining as a director of sales and account manager, I’ve been a marketing strategist in the mortgage industry. First, I was at Quicken Loans (now Rocket Mortgage), then at JP Morgan & Chase. And in those positions, I used Idomoo Personalized Video across the entire customer journey to educate and inspire customers to take action. I loved the technology so much, I joined the company. I got to share a little about this and how our platform works at this year’s Digital Mortgage conference by National Mortgage News. You can see my presentation — and take a look under the hood of our Next Generation Video Platform — in the clip below. But if you’d rather read, here’s
