Specialist digital and eCRM agency, Underwired Amaze, has created a brand new website for FMCG giant, McCain Foods, designed to evoke emotional connection through the use of innovative creative and personalised content, which is personalised depending on where users sit within the eCRM cycle.
Underwired Amaze’s brief was to create a new website for mums with busy lifestyles, however, unusually for a global brand, no brand guidelines were issued for its look and feel, and the visual brief was directly linked to users’ emotional attachment and sense of discovery.
Having already executed a hugely successful eCRM strategy for McCain, which increased sales revenue by 38% during the first six months of the year, Underwired Amaze has created a stunning online experience taking users on an interactive journey to destinations through woodland walks. Users can play games at the Fair, learn how to make their own bird feeder at the Farm, or visit the Kitchen, which is filled with useful content such as local event information, downloadable money-off coupons and video recipes, featuring Loose Women’s Andrea McLean. Viewing content and interacting with the site is rewarded with spud shillings that can be redeemed for money-off vouchers from a range of high street brands.
Jason Holland, Creative Director at Underwired Amaze, commented, “Our aim was to make using the site really memorable, and something people want to tell their friends about and visit again. One of the key features is that it gives users the feeling they are interacting with a real life environment, rewarding them with engaging, relevant and useful content at each different location.”
