Chins up for real-world to digital engagement - So Interactive
Chins up for real-world to digital engagement

The real-world to digital engagement loop is absolutely pivotal to campaign success in the food and beverage industry. Great apps are only as great as the in-store engagement they offer, and vice-versa; the in-store experience should drive back to a digital touch point, offering longevity to the overall brand experience. That is why So Interactive went to work getting chins up, both digitally and in the real world, for Ocean Basket and the beachhouse wine's new Greek madness campaign.
