Strepsils and Nurofen’s digital campaign to increase engagement on Facebook with Newsfeed SmartApps.

Strepsils and Nurofen's digital campaign

How do we make administering medicines to children an intuitive thing? We came up with a simple, yet fun way of engaging and educating the users about relating the right Strepsils or Nurofen product for the corresponding symptom in a child. This was done through an interesting storytelling Newsfeed app.

The story featured a family with the parents, and the kids, Samad, and Noura. The story follows as Samad and Noura show symptoms of cold related illnesses in different settings such as visits to the amusement park, etc. and how Strepsils and Nurofen play an important part in their day-to-day lives.

Through the Newsfeed app, users could find out exactly which cough relief product would be relevant to the symptom shown in a creative and fun manner. The app campaign was launched as part of a series of app posts to relate to different symptoms and their corresponding products.
