From the 11th Annual Shorty Awards

Walmart Shuffle

Finalist in Localization, Facebook

About this entry

Improve associate and customer perception around Walmart, specifically as it relates to Walmart being an amazing place to work and fun place to shop.

Why does this entry deserve to win?

Guiding Philosophy: At Walmart we believe our people make the difference, whether that's through selling merchandise or sharing their talents and passions at work with their community.

Our Strategic Principles:

- Activate our associate base to show off their talents within a localized store context, thereby generating more authentic and organic content that they would feel a sense of ownership of and promote on their own

- Leverage nostalgia with our primary audience target (busy families who would have grown up in 80s and 90s pop culture)

How We Brought it To Life:

We partnered with DJ New Cupid and adapted his 90s hit song and line-dance staple "Cupid Shuffle" specifically for Walmart.

The resulting "Walmart Shuffle" song that we co-created with Cupid was made available for public download, leading to hundreds of our stores sharing their best "Walmart Shuffle" dance moves on social media with the #walmartshuffle and #shufflechallenge tags.

To recognize the best store submission, we featured them in an official "Walmart Shuffle Music Video" alongside New Cupid, DJ Phat, and our own Walmart Radio DJs.

Results

As of February 7, 2019

There were 479 total posts, all organic, tagged #walmartshuffle #shufflechallenge with a potential reach of 75MM.

A Winston Salem Walmart store's #shufflechallenge post entry went viral with 289,133 post engagements; 20,642,627 impressions; 6,467,550 video views; local press; resulted in an originally unplanned parking lot concert with Cupid.

The "Official Walmart Shuffle Music Video" post went organically viral with 25,557,341 impressions; 282,810 post engagements; 7.1MM video views; approx 45k likes/15k love reactions with only 64 angry or sad reactions; it was by far the highest performing post to ever be on the @WalmartWorld (formerly @WalmartToday) social handle;

In short, our "fun" associate-driven campaign organically generated viral reach & engagement, with high positive/low negative sentiment around the campaign itself and Walmart. Comment verbatims included both customers and associates articulating pride in their respective employer and community store, as well as non-customers who said that though they historically don't care for Walmart, they still commended the content.
