On Feb. 4 via Instagram Live, Dunn will sign autographs while answering questions and sharing his favorite beverages and snacks, according to the dedicated Fanzone event page. A carousel ad and display ad on pepsicrunchtime.com links to said event page, while a recent Instagram update from Dunn also directed to the event. Interested users can register for the signing plus get more information on the Sam’s Club bulk-purchase incentive on the event page, which also links back to pepsicrunchtime.com.
In other Super Bowl-related activity from Sam’s Club, the retailer employed a “Homegating” shop within its website that highlights game day/party essentials from frozen appetizers and grocery items to televisions/accessories and grills and smokers in one location. It depicts a “featured categories” section to make shopping easier as well as touts its free curbside Pickup service. A home page carousel ad links to the shop, inviting users to “kick off homegating with top tech, the best snacks and more.”
Sam’s Club also commissioned bloggers and editorial pieces such as from USA Today’s Shop Today to position the warehouse chain as the go-to place for game day essentials and highlight relevant product in the weeks leading up to the big game.
