Cross-Canada Marketing Campaign for Taste of Nature

Marketing Campaign Magic

Looking for the marketing campaign of the summer? Well, you’ve found it!!! 

Canada is known for many things, but above all, the great outdoors! Our clients from Taste of Nature want to celebrate this by encouraging people to get back in touch with nature.

Tigris has teamed up with this amazing brand for an 8 week long, cross-country experiential marketing campaign appropriately called “Urban Paddler”. Planning for this national promo tour got under way in mid-April for a mid-June launch.

To bring this marketing campaign and vibrant brand to life, Tigris was tasked with:

  • sourcing and branding a rental truck,
  • researching events in 4 markets and negotiating permits,
  • coordinating accommodations for the field managers in 3 markets,
  • recruiting 2 field managers and local events staff in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Montreal,
  • budget management for the entire marketing campaign including compensating staff and all vendors.

Scheduling a Marketing Campaign

Our field managers departed Toronto on Jun. 15 to arrive in Vancouver by Jun. 21. The summer marketing campaign kicked off officially the following day on Jun. 22. The activation came complete with a canoe on wheels (that we like to call a canoecycle or a bikanoe!), an interactive photo experience and 100,000 samples to hand out.

The marketing campaign schedule included:

  • The Dragon Boat Festival and Vancouver Jazz Fest Jun. 22-Jul. 1,
  • Calgary Stampede Jul. 6,
  • Toronto Beaches Jazz Fest Jul. 26-28 and
  • Drummondville Poutinefest Aug. 24-26.

Furthermore, our field managers executed 25 retail samplings at various grocery and health food stores like Farm Boy, Longo’s and Healthy Planet. Taste of Nature also layered on a guerilla sampling program to the marketing campaign with our BA’s hitting up busy downtown green spaces from Jul. 9-Aug. 19 and handing out 40,000 more samples. Sounds like a unique marketing campaign, doesn’t it?

Curious about what this marketing campaign looked like in action? Here is a highlight video from our first event at the Vancouver Dragon Boat Festival.

A Marketing Campaign that Matters

In addition to our team’s onsite activities, Taste of Nature teamed up with their PR firm Strategic Objectives for an integrated social media promotion. For every photo posted online that showcases the great outdoors with the hashtag #FindYourTasteofNature, $1 will be donated to Parks Canada. As a result, by participating in this campaign, you are helping our environment. 

Now that you know all about the great things Taste of Nature is doing nationwide, we had to ask. Are you familiar with their brand? If not, here is some information about them!
