The World’s first 1 Ton Coupon

1 ton couponThe Volkswagen Amarok is a tough pickup, so when we decided to give away a coupon for a free tow bar, we didn’t hand out just any coupon. We created the world’s first 1 Ton Coupon!
Most of our target audience don’t know that it is the only Double Cab automatic 4×4 pick-up in South Africa that can carry a one-ton load. The strategy behind the campaign was to demonstrate this toughness to potential consumers.
So we went to the place where you find lots of pick-up owners: Builder Warehouse , the country’s biggest chain of DIY stores. Pickup drivers are not easily impressed but it succeed to catch their attention. In the meantime on radio and online, we invited Amarok owners to redeem the coupon. It didn’t take long before we had an Amarok driver who was keen to show off the superior load capacity of his vehicle.
What was an immovable object for any other pick up, was a pretty simple task for the Volkswagen Amarok. By turning a simple promotional item into the world’s heaviest coupon, we gave Amarok drivers everywhere instant bragging rights.
