Local bake off

Local bake off

The Portuguese Bakery has launched a Facebook competition to elect which of its bakeries is the best in Lisbon. The winning bakery will be giving its products away for free for a whole day. This competition marks the bakery’s second birthday.
 

Why it matters

In two years, the Portuguese Bakery has quickly become Lisbon's largest network of bakeries. With this campaign, the brand can strengthen its awareness while keeping its local community spirit. It also allows to get people involved with their neighbourhood's bakery  - an important element especially during recessionary times. Is it only particular types of brands and products that are able to communicate their overall brand whilst strengthening their position locally?

Home for Christmas

Home for Christmas

The Portuguese delicatessen brand Nobre has launched a new Christmas Facebook campaign aiming at bringing an emigrant back to Portugal for the holidays. Participants are required to write the story of a relative or friend who has emigrated and the best one will be offered a plane ticket to come home for Christmas.

Australia's ice cream brand Bulla Creamy Classics has gone a step further by having teams of reporters in London and New York looking for competitors, as well as a booth in London's Victoria station for Australians to record a message explaining why they should win the prize.
 

Why it matters

These are not aviation or travel agencies but local brands that are capitalising on the growing trend of ‘global citizens’ . How can these brands start using such campaigns to explore new markets abroad?

Swapping pixels for pistols

Swapping pixels for pistols

‘Pixels for Pistols’ is an original gun trade-in programme. Hand in your illegal firearm to the Winnepeg Police in Canada, and electronic retailer Henry’s will offer you a Panasonic digital camera as well as a School of Imaging gift card worth $240.
 

Why it matters

Perhaps a digital camera isn’t an attractive exchange item, but the initiative seems like a good way for local retail stores to contribute to the improvement of their communities. How can  retail chain stores and franchises get involved more actively in their local neighbourhoods?
