In recent years, leading by some SUPER Protagonists, like Jennie@BlackPink and Taylor Swift film photography has returned and becoming a new vibe among millennials.
O O Photoshop, a new online film shop founded by film enthusiasts from Hong Kong. The founders are trying to advocate the culture of film photography to the digital era generation by selling the film at much more affordable price. With the opportunity of HKGOV released the 2nd round of Consumption Voucher and was also the 300th day of OOPhotoshop, they wanted to conduct a giveaway campaign to promote their shop and study market insight.
Challenges for a new brand
Traditional Giveaway cannot gen leads
Traditional “Like, Comment and Share – Giveaway” campaign has been proven an effective method to increase followers on social media. However, people usually are here just for the prize rather than the product and service provided by the brand. Even more unlikely it could induce audience interest in film photography and drive sales.
Expensive operation cost
With a good prize, a giveaway campaign could easily receive hundreds or thousands of entries from different platforms. It would need a lot of manpower to read all the comments and verify all the entries. Not to mention, they need to manage lots of sales and enquiries every day. It could overload their resources.
As a newcomer, OOPhotoshop is lacking both resource and market insight for procurement and marketing plan. OOPhotoshop wanted to add a market survey to the campaign and collect information about customers’ film choice and interest.
Typical survey services such as SurveyMonkey, Google Form are not design for marketing and social engagement. Their interfaces do not fit for multimedia such as images, and videos. Therefore, normal survey tools is certainly not a good choice for a giveaway campaign related to photography.
Living in a world filled with fraud and conspiracy. It is very challenging for a new online shop like OOPhotoshop to gain followers and trust. Everyone concerns about use and collection their own data. It is very unlikely for people to trust a new shop based only on a their Instagram profile and website, and feel safe to place an order and share their data.
How does Votap solve these problems?

People needed to correctly pair the film type with the photo to win the price.

20% conversion rate
Usual Facebook Ads campaign conversion rate lies between 8-10%. Votap Photo Quiz campaign recorded 19.5% conversion rate, greatly exceeded social media benchmark.
Approved ownership of customer data
Traditional giveaway campaign, audience participates via Facebook and Instagram. According to Facebook and Instagram policy, they would not share users’ info to any 3rd parties. Therefore, customer would need to contact the OOPhotoshop individually via messaging, which would greatly increase the time and cost. By using Votap question, customers’ info and contact are privately protected and only shared to OOPhotoshop.
Among all votes, 92% of participant shared their contact and preference with OOPhotoshop.
These data and contact could be utilized for future promotion campaign and procurement.
