CASE STUDY: Kelloggs invite families to take part in theBig Bake
Provided by ITV
ITV joined with Kellogg's to help promote their Big Bake campaign, with the key aim of encouraging families to bake together.
What was the Challenge / Background of the Campaign?
Kellogg's wanted to demonstrate to their target audience of families the fun they can have, baking with their products... & invite them to take part. They challenged ITV to get behind their baking promotion, with the aim of getting consumers to spend time with their Rice Krispies cereal. Whilst 'baking as a family' & 'having fun' are compelling messages in their own right, ITV wanted to go further. The chance for families to star in a TV ad is even more compelling; everyone is proud of their families & wants to show off about the fun they have together.
What was the Campaign Objective?
ITV teamed up with Kellogg's to help promote their Big Bake campaign and build awareness of their brand with the key aim of encouraging families to bake together.
What was the Solution?

The call-to-enter was also made via VOD & display on ITV websites & via Kellogg's packs. The nation gets 'Big Baking'. Broadcasting the nation's best 'Big Bakers'; 3 winning families were filmed and the ad broadcast on ITV1 on Mother's Day during Dancing on Ice: The Final to a huge audience of 6.4m housewives (46.2% sov). Making Mother's Day a 'Big Baking Day'; Kellogg's sponsored the entire Mother's Day schedule on ITV3.
