Nicorette, a market leader in Nicotine Replacement Therapy, was loosing gum-market shares to competitors offering a more candy-like product. The new soft gum Peppermint was launched to turn the trend. As chewing is believing, the launch was based around sampling, and for effective and broad impact most of it was done online from www.nicorette.se. Parallel to this we let Nicorette’s now famous Craving Man lead his own campaign to save smokers from the dangers of Peppermint use, on www.smokeweek.se, and in a series of radio ads, to generate traffic to the smokeweek website. The target of 10,000 ordered samples was quickly reached and as we write this, 23,000 people have ordered samples.
The Radio ad titled SAVE THE SMOKER was done by Otto Stockholm advertising agency for product: Nicorette Anti-smoking Gum (brand: Nicorette) in Sweden. It was released in the Oct 2004.
