Kleenex with Lotion sampling campaign extended
DALLAS Kimberly-Clark earlier this month extended its Kleenex with Lotion sampling campaign through March 22 to malls in 10 cities.
The campaign initially kicked off in September 2008, representing the company’s largest consumer sampling effort in the history of the Kleenex brand to support the roll out of its next-generation Kleenex with Lotion, a facial tissue that offers improvement in softness and strength and that is more soothing to consumers than other tissue offerings, the company stated.
Beginning in January, as part of the next phase of the consumer sampling program, the Kleenex brand will launch an experiential marketing initiative – the Kleenex Lotion Feelspace, in regional shopping mall centers.
Each weekend, the Kleenex with Lotion Feelspace environment will extend through a different retail center from floor to ceiling, in three different ways:
? The Anchor Experience – a 20 foot by 20 foot environment where consumers are encouraged to wander in and touch and feel different soft surfaces, which will include a 42-inch digital touch screen interaction;? Satellite Experiences – a 2 foot by 2 foot manned station with product placed in highly visible/trafficked areas where consumers will be encouraged to touch and feel the soothing difference in the Kleenex with Lotion product and talk to Kleenex representatives; and? Ambient/In-life Media Experiences – window clings and floor graphics in malls to direct consumers to the Feelspace booth, as well as branded iPhone applications available on Apple iTunes Store as a free download to extend the experience.
Three staffers will tour with the exhibits and 12 will be hired on a market-by-market basis to man the exhibits. Kleenex Facial Tissue with Lotion was first introduced this fall in late September.
