- Montblanc – Leveraging Consumer Interests To Boost Product Relevance – Moon Phase
Montblanc uncovered an insight from studying social conversations and integrated the concept of crystal gazing and the lunar cycle into its brand comms. Audience interest in the moon cycle inspired Montblanc to create a dynamic QR code incorporating different elements of the lunar cycle on WeChat. WeChat users would have to enter their gender and date of birth, which would then generate a depiction of how the users profile associated with the lunar cycle and their identities, connections, side interests and professions. This resulted in Montblanc achieving high levels of engagement and resonance with the Chinese audience for it’s newly launched product.
