Shopkick Launches TV Ad Campaign With Minneapolis-Based Agency Marketing Architects


MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Shopkick, a leading shopping rewards app, makes its national TV debut with the launch of its TV ad campaign: “Whoo-hoo!” The campaign aims to share and emulate the excitement Shopkick customers feel when they use the in-store app to earn rewards while shopping.

Shopkick selected Minneapolis-based Marketing Architects to launch its recent television campaign. The shopping rewards app chose Marketing Architects because of its upfront investment model and full-service capabilities. For the “Whoo Hoo!” campaign, Marketing Architects was responsible for campaign strategy, creative development and production, media placement and optimization, and performance attribution for the app.

“We look forward to expanding our reach through television. Marketing Architects’ initial advertising campaign truly captures the exhilaration our customers feel when using the Shopkick app,” said Dave Fisch, General Manager of Shopkick.

Shopkick is a free app that rewards shoppers with “kicks” (its reward currency) for entering stores, scanning products on shelves, buying specific items online, watching product videos and more. activities. The “Kicks” are then redeemed for free gift cards. Shopkick’s full journey-to-purchase offering delivers substantial returns for brands and retailers by allowing them to engage with consumers before they shop, then continue with them in-store and on their phone.

“TV provides the opportunity to spread awareness of the app and its success to even more users, supporting Shopkick’s growth goals,” said Eric Pilhofer, vice president of creative at Marketing Architects. “We saw a tremendous opportunity for TV advertising to reach many of Shopkick’s core target audience, and we’re excited to see how this campaign – and future ones – will bring value to the app.”
