The Busker Irish Whiskeys has launched Busk It! Discovery, a multi-channel, digital promotion to engage consumers. The campaign includes a large video contest with monetary grants, rebates on purchases, The Busker gear giveaways and immersive virtual tastings. While the brand honors its Irish heritage, it encourages fans to go beyond the lines of history and write a new story. This new narrative begins with the consumer and it begins with #BuskIt. The Busker Contest will award nine contestants across the country a $5,000 grant each that best showcase the #BuskIt lifestyle through inspiring video submissions.
“We’re incredibly excited to kick off Busk It! Discovery and give our fans the chance to win $5,000 to help achieve their goals, whether it be personal or professional,” says Ignacio Llaneza, Vice President of Brand & Trade Marketing for Disaronno International in the U.S.. “Through our activation, we have the opportunity to communicate with consumers through a multifaceted approach covering online, retail, social media and more. The Busker elicits adventure — it calls for globetrotters to pick up and go, meet their goals and achieve their dreams — and we’re calling on everyone to join the #BuskIt movement.”
The Busk It! Discovery promotion includes:
- The Busker Contest: The Busker is encouraging consumers to live their dreams and unleash what’s inside.
