General Mills

Create a Buzz to Promote a Good Cause

The Challenge

General Mills needed support with a mass media campaign to promote a company-wide effort benefitting “Save the Bees”. The collateral for this was important because of the presence of paid TV, billboards and digital media. They wanted consumers at the supermarkets to identify the campaign and buy the products in order to contribute to the cause.

The Solution

FASTSIGNS® provided branded hats and shirts to all participants of the community and media events to ensure a cohesive look for the promotion.

Blade signs installed on the aisles educated shoppers about the campaign and promoted products to purchase to benefit “Save the Bees”. Cross merchandise signage reinforced the effort, reminding shoppers of the campaign. Pallet displays and banner stands extended the message to other areas of the supermarket.
