Beck’s Vier is a brand that prides itself on championing up and coming musical artists. They wanted to reach their target audience of young men who regularly listen to music and offer them a free music track download via creative advertising in the Bars and Pubs they socialise in. Using Admedia’s mobile services, Beck’s Vier offered consumers the chance to download the track using NFC technology, QR codes and Search. All consumers needed to do was choose which mobile option they wanted to use, which then connected them to a special microsite that offered easy instructions for downloading the chosen track.
Becks wanted to place extra emphasis on the East London area so a concentration of 25,000 NFC beermats were distributed here.
