“Table Tent” Marketing with Social Media Promotion
This print advertising campaign was designed to get patrons who are already at Forbidden Planet in Iowa City to share on social media that they are at this location having fun and are posting pictures of their good time. This type of printed advertisement is called a “table tent.” The purpose is to give away 10 free tokens to play the games if you post on social media and tag this restaurant. This, in our opinion, is an under-utilized technique to get the word out in a somewhat organic way. After all, who likes forced promotions by a company that they follow on social networks? However, when a post shows up from a friend saying how much fun they are having, that will catch our eye and it’s intended to have a much different effect than self promotion.
Wanna get some free tokens? It’s easy! Take a picture of fun #icforbiddenplanet times, tag us and claim your tokens at the bar. #tokens #arcade #iowacity #downtowniowacity #uiowa #iowa #universityofiowa #fun
