Brand Loyalty take Super Animals App to Europe
The Super Animals loyalty campaign is wildly popular amongst retail shoppers.
The Super Animals loyalty campaign is wildly popular amongst retail shoppers. After two successful South African campaigns, Sea Monster’s famous mobile app has now travelled to Europe, where the craze for the campaign app has been as much a hit as it was locally.
Recognising the success that the mobile app brought to the campaign in the South African market, European retail consumer agency, Brand Loyalty requested Sea Monster to adapt the Super Animals Mobile application for their European retail clients in Poland, Portugal and Spain.
Each version of the application was customized for its specific country through language and animation content.
While the concept of educational gaming is no stranger to European markets, the Super Animals mobile app had that something extra. The augmented reality features that the app showed for the collectable animals made the app extremely popular amongst children, being able to interact with the animals on a new level was as much entertaining as it was educational.
The Super Animals app was extremely successful in South Africa, even being used as a teaching aid in classrooms and the app has gained just as much popularity in Europe. Because of the unique augmented reality components, children have enjoyed the game recreationally, whilst also learning fun facts about the animals in their home countries. The result is memorable experiences that have extended far beyond the actual period of the in-store promotional campaigns.
We are proud to have been a part of this campaign and look forward to continuing our business relationship with Brand Loyalty.
In today’s competitive landscape, brands make use of a variety of channels and platforms such as above-the-line (like radio and TV), middle (digital media) and below-the-line (public relations and physical activations) to craft successful marketing campaigns.
Gamfication is not a new phenomenon. In the wake of the Games for Change Africa festival, which took place towards the end of 2022, it’s becoming increasingly clear that gaming – and impact gaming in particular – has the potential to be a significant force for good across the African continent. Not only can the sector help drive positive change in fields such as education, financial literacy, and skills development, but impact gaming can also promote job creation and help foster diversity and inclusivity.
South Africa’s oceans, like others around the world, are under grave threat from overfishing, poaching, and other illicit marine activities. That threat isn’t just to the fish caught up on lines and trawler nets either. Rather, it represents a danger to entire ecosystems below and above the water and also to livelihoods and the economy as a whole. That’s without even considering marine poaching, which is enriching violent criminal gangs.
