Fletcher Martin, the integrated marketing communications agency, created two interactive components for Arby’s as part of the QSR’s first market test for an in-store and online-only campaign. The campaign, which highlights Arby’s new Mini Snack sandwiches, runs now through July 31 for residents of Savannah, Georgia and Montgomery, Alabama.
Created in PointRoll, the ads include a Snack Attack game where players must grab as many Arby’s Mini Snacks as quickly as possible, as well as a revolving banner in which hungry customers move Mini Snack items around a rotating sphere to highlight their mouth-watering features.
The ads are running on Yahoo!®; Yahoo!® Mail; Yahoo!® Messenger; Yahoo!® Shine and Run of Network.
“With six new products from Arby’s, we wanted to create rich media banner ads that would enable the viewer to see each one in an engaging way that allowed them to personally interact with the Arby’s brand,” explained Brad Sarmiento, VP of Interactive for Fletcher Martin.
“This online campaign allows us to target specific markets and reach a broader base of customers in these markets all while creating an engaging, interactive environment for consumers to learn more about our innovative menu items,” said Cyndi Richardson, Vice President, Company Marketing, Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc.
Fletcher Martin also created in-store POP to support the campaign. Arby’s plans to extend the campaign to include more local market initiatives online.
