Ok so for anyone who follows me on Instagram will know that I have a bee in my bonnet about Twix and their 1 in 6 chance competition, to win a free Twix?!?! Seriously? In the age where we are giving away free ipads, does a free Twix stand up to much? I can’t get enjoy free Galaxy chocolate, Pepsi, and Maryland cookies; not to mention the new Dairy Milk Ritz bars handed out to me by companies hoping to get me hooked onto their product.
So it leads me to my next thought. Have you noticed how many companies are giving away free or additional benefits with their product. Even a cat company, is trying to be creative in their latest marketing campaign, by throwing in a “specially designed feeding bowl” that’s apparently whisker friendly. …it’s really just a bowl though. If I can see past the sea of freebies going around, to see them as creative ways to get consumer by in, then you must know that others can see it to. With so many options to choose from everyday, why the hell would a 1 in 6 chance of wining a free Twix entice me to buy another Twix? …I just bought one?
It’s not really visible to be MIA from social platforms such as Twitter either. Come one you could do so much more! Let’s get creative Twix!
…Think I’ll just go with the Dairy Milk in the meantime. #Justsaying
