Core disciplines: Experiential marketing

The Challenge

Samsung challenged us to create an incentive and reward program for Three Retail agents over an 8-week period.

Our aim was to encourage retail agents within Three stores around the UK to trust Samsung as a brand enough to sell their products, as well as ensuring Samsung is seen as a well-positioned market leader. We used Samsung’s key passion points, including elements of Travel, music and sport as inspiration from the very beginning. 


We created an interactive microsite, which hosted short quizzes which gave the agents an opportunity to win weekly prizes, ranging from Freak-shake kits to Ticketmaster gift cards. Agents who entered all 8 quizzes were entered into the draw for the grand prize: an all-expense paid trip to Toronto, Canada.

On the trip, they enjoyed a MLB game, watching the New York Yankees battle it out against the Toronto Blue jays, an intimate Kings of Leon gig at the Budweiser stadium, a beach day trip to Woodbine Beach and finally, a day trip to Niagara falls with an experience of a boat trip to get drenched under the falls.

The heavily prized incentives and especially the grand prize encouraged positive chatter around Three and Samsung, receiving some incredible feedback from both clients and competition participants. 

Ta da.

Key Stats:

42% agents registered

Average of 41% quiz participation across all 8 weeks.

Very strong feedback from Samsung, Three and the incentive winners, with 93% of those voting the trip as one of the best holidays they had ever had. 

Incentive winner comments:

“The trip was amazing, everything was run efficiently even though we did have lots of stuff to pack in, I never felt like we were rushed and that was probably why I thought the holiday was still relaxing. The whole experience was amazing and I loved how Autumn and Steph ( and the rest of the team) thought of things to do so that everyone's likes were covered, sports music etc. Thank you!” 

“Best trip I think I'll ever have in my life. It's the people as well as the place -you can't ever get that back again. Thank you so much. You have changed my life for the better and I'm just so grateful. (Emotional writing this) seriously thank you Samsung and massive shout to Steph and Autumn they really are amazing women.”

Have you got an interesting project you think we can help with?
