8 August 2014: The struggles of ordering pizza are finally over, thanks to a new iOS app that lets users order pizza with the push of a button.

After downloading the free app ‘Push for Pizza’ users input their payment information, their address, their preferred local pizza joint and whether they prefer cheese or pepperoni. Push for Pizza saves all this information so that the next time the user is craving a slice of pie all they have to do is push the pizza button. Push for Pizza even works out the tip and adds this to the payment so there is no searching for quarters between couch cushions.

The app, created by a group of teens, relies on online meal ordering and payment site ordr.in, a site that itself links up with other food order sites like Delivery.com

7 August 2014: Fashion brands are embracing interactive video, with Levi and luxury fashion e-tailer Net-A-Porter both releasing shoppable videos.

Created by Ciematique, Net-A-Porters video- touted as the first “shoppable fashion film” - features touchable ‘hot spots’ that when touched lets the viewer add products to their ‘personal boutique’, share via social media, or purchase the items directly from the online store.

Levi’s film ‘Live in Levi’s’ seeks to tell the story of the people who wear its jeans. The video features a selection of influencers from across the globe discussing their love of the brand and how they wear their jeans. Throughout the film, ‘click-to-buy’ buttons appear, allowing viewers to purchase selected items.

In addition to the two films being shoppable, both have a strong focus on storytelling - whether real or in the case of Net-A-Porter fantasy. Another medium used to connect to shoppers and make them consider how the products will fit into their own lives.

5 August 2013 In 2011 Pepsi created the Social Vending System that let users gift a drink to a friend. Now Pepsi has unveiled its newest drink dispenser, Pepsi Spire, that lets users mix a beverage in over 1,000 different ways.

The Pepsi Spire holds a selection of PepsiCo’s beverages including Pepsi, Mountain Dew and non-carbonated drinks like Brisk Iced Tea. The Spires also included a range of flavor shots (cherry, lime, vanilla and more).  Using the touch screen interface users can order a regular PepsiCo drink or one of their own creation. Though, to save the user from making grave combination mistakes the machine doesn’t offer flavor shots that don’t work well with a particular beverage.

Brad Jakeman, PepsiCo’s president-global beverages group told Advertising Age that “[Pepsi] wanted to make it as intuitive as possible and find the perfect balance between consumer engagement and efficiency.”

A dedicated micro site has been created for the Spires allowing US consumers to easily find the machines in their city.

In the company’s press release chief design officer, PepsiCo Mauro Porcini said that the “Pepsi Spire is the perfect combination of beauty, functionality and technology fused together to create a range of customizable and meaningful solutions for our customers and consumers.”

There are currently 55 Pepsi Spires across the US with more being rolled out across both within the US and globally soon.

1 August 2014: Grolsch has turned its beer into a movie ticket with just the clink of its bottle.

The beer brand were running a campaign in Russia that allowed its consumers to enter a promotional code into a partner site to watch a free movie, but they wanted to make the process even easier. So, working with St Petersburg app developers Head and Hands they created Movie Unlocker.

The technology uses a Bluetooth beacon and any next-generation Bluetooth device – computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone. When a bottle is opened and brought in close proximity to a device it sends a signal to a server to register the bottles serial number. If there is a successful match between the serial number and one in the database the user is able to unlock their chosen movie and enjoy.

1 August 2014: During the FIFA World Cup Coca Cola gave some lucky fans the opportunity to play on the pitch of Brazil’s Maracana Stadium. With the help of virtual reality that is. The soft-drink giant created a replica of the stadium’s locker rooms, and once fitted with VR Oculus Rift goggles they could move from the locker room to the pitch.

It’s all part of the emergence of virtual reality in advertising. Something that Advertising Age thinks could be the next big thing in the advertising industry.

“It’s about the authenticity of being inside that stadium,” said Matt Wolf, head of global gaming at Coca-Cola, in the Adage article. And it’s something he says that consumers will thank Coke for.

Coke, HBO and Nissan are three international brands hedging the path of virtual reality marketing, offering experiences – like the above – that create unique ways of building relationships with customers.

For the time being, VR is too expensive and bulky for common usage, but as the technology becomes more readily available and practical these kinds of connections are sure to grow allowing brands greater opportunity to connect and wow consumers.

29 July 2014: In April, British chef bent on encouraging the world’s consumption of healthy food launched a YouTubenchannel aimed at educating viewers on what to put in their glass. Drinks Tube, so Jamie’s website claims, does the same to drinks as its sister channel Food Tube does for food – giving tips and recipes in how to make fresh, fun drinks at home.

This week, in collaboration with Bacardi, Drink Tube set up a shop in a London Tube Station to seek cocktail inspiration from passers by, as well as users of Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for Cocktail Request Week.

Social media users can use the #CocktailRequest to send inspiration to Drinks Tube, with their inspiration being crafted into drink throughout the day. Though it’s the exclusive spirits sponsor, not all drinks feature Bacardi rum. The Ed Sheeran Shake, inspired by a tweet sent from the singer to Oliver, which requested ‘anything with cucumber or coffee’ was translated into the Ed Sheeran shake – a Scotch whiskey drink with Benedictine herbal liqueur, black coffee and vanilla ice cream.

The event runs from 28 July – 1 August 2014, online and in East London’s Old Street Tube Station.

21 July 2014: French sportswear brand, Lacoste, has released an unique app that it believes will make it easier and faster for shoppers to try on its new range of trainers, thanks to augmented reality.

Though other brands have used AR in to connect with consumers, Lacoste claims that the app to be a world first, as it combines 3D product scanning with augmented reality. The in-store app, developed by Engine Creative, allows shoppers to see what the brand’s new trainers would look like on their foot without having to wait for a shop assistant, or to take off their shoes. 

To use the app, shoppers place their foot on a graphic on the store floor and scan it with their smartphone. The app then shows the shopper what a pair of trainers they’re interested looks like on their foot.

The app can also be used to share images via social media or for shopper to purchase any of the shoes. Lacoste plans on continuing the service into the future to build a long-term relationship with customers.

17 July 2014: Earlier this year, a Heineken survey looked at consumer’s fears and expectations toward city exploration. Among the finding, was that consumers had a fear of missing out (FOMO). To help address this problem, and as part of its ongoing ‘Cities of the World’ campaign, Heineken is releasing ‘Where Next’ a geo-centric social compass to help people find the next place to visit on a night out.

The Twitter-based @wherenext service works in real time to read the ‘pulse of a city by using real-time location-based social activity to show where is hot and guide’ to their next adventure. The activity is also provided on a mobile-responsive Open Your Citythat can be accessed by consumers around the world – no need to download any apps.

To figure out ‘where next’, the social-media-based service uses a unique algorithm that ‘listens’ to social media activity, such as tweets, check-in and geo-tagged photos across popular social media platforms like Twitter, Instagram and Foursquare. The service then analyzes this information to find out which locations are trending.

15 July 2014: Birchbox started as an online beauty discovery store, selling customized subscription boxes filled with full-sized product samples, which subscribers can then buy from their online store. Now, it’s bringing their concept offline with Birchbox Soho.

Birchbox Soho is another example of real-world and the virtual world coming together, as while it’s a brick and mortar store it has a number of features that correspond with their online experience. The store features iPads where customers new to the Birchbox experience can fill out a survey to help determine customized product recommendations. Machine learning and artificial intelligence are used to create the recommendations.
