From the 11th Annual Shorty Awards

Amazon Prime Student Winsday Giveaway

Entered in Contest or Promotion

About this entry

Concept:

With algorithms constantly changing on social platforms, Amazon Prime Student was looking for a way to engage organically with college students. The solution was to create a unique sweepstakes-style giveaway to excite fans on Instagram and encourage engagement. Winsday provided fans with a weekly opportunity to engage with the content in order to win highly-desirable, relevant prizes. Each prize was chosen to correspond with key moments and milestones that appealed directly to the college students throughout each season.

Goals:

Grow Brand Awareness:

By posting the giveaway consistently each week with an exciting new product, Prime Student fans were both encouraged to come back to visit the channel on a regular basis as well as consistently reminded of the depth and breadth of products available on Amazon.

Increase Brand Loyalty:

Offering prizes that specifically appeal to college students increased the chance for fans to engage with the post in order to win.

Increase Engagement:

In order to be entered for a chance to win the product, fans were required to comment on the post, leading to more opportunities for deeper engagement.

Why does this entry deserve to win?

Winsday was launched at the start of Back to School season, August, a key timeframe for the brand. Amazon Prime Student originally planned to run the contest for eight weeks, but due to the success of the promotion the initiative was extended to an ongoing program.

Each week, Amazon products were chosen for the promotion and integrated into the overall weekly content produced for Amazon Prime Student. Products were chosen based on a variety of factors including seasonality, key college moments, campaign themes and trending items.

Prizes include a hanging hammock chair during the beginning of September when students need to a cozy spot to study but want a stylish and on-trend solution. Another prize example was an Amazon Fire Stick around Halloween tied to favorite scary movies. The Fire Stick showcased not only an Amazon device, but also acted as a reminder of the Prime Video streaming benefit enjoyed by members.

Showcasing a mix of products within Winsday allowed Prime Student to continually reinforce their brand message of Prime benefits and product selection without alienating their Gen Z audience.

Creative was designed to stand out from other organic content posted to the channel.

Product shots were added to the graphic template to ensure the prize was the primary focus of the image. The creative design was updated quarterly to correspond with the season and/or broader campaign design elements.

Results

Results:

A total of 35 Winsday giveaways were conducted resulting in:
