a drive-to-web campaign

As a strong supporter of mobile marketing, Panda Tea regularly carries out advertising campaigns during the marketing highlights of the year such as sales, Black Friday, Christmas, etc.

Use the RCS as a weapon for advertising purposes

Panda Tea wanted to launch an RCS campaign in partnership with smsmode©. The objective was to explore the possibilities of this new channel and to bring a new dynamic to the brand's mobile communication.

The campaign focused on highlighting end-of-year products (teas, gift sets, herbal teas, etc.) in the form of buttons and a carousel (image and product description associated with a link).

Study Case RCS Panda Tea

Our main objective is to generate traffic to our website and the RCS is a promising channel that has allowed us to use images, buttons and carousels in our campaign, which SMS does not allow.

outstanding performance

Benefit from the RCS's strike force

The campaign was sent to RCS-compatible mobile phone numbers from the large contact base used for SMS advertising campaigns. More than 18,000 Panda Tea customers benefited from a dynamic, simple and direct interaction through this new enriched mobile experience.

The statistics and link tracking features have made it possible to monitor and analyse the results of the RCS in real time. And the results are remarkable!
92.78% of RCSs were read, 75% of which were read within an hour of being sent, rivalling the already exceptional performance of SMS.
And the other performances are not to be outdone: with a click rate of 7.23%, a conversion rate of 16.26% - 3 times higher than the SMS campaigns usually carried out by the brand - and an unsubscription rate of 1.2%, the RCS proves its effectiveness.

The results of this campaign corroborate our forecasts: this new mobile messaging channel is clearly positioned as a "drive to Web" tool for e-commerce, which also has a direct impact on sales.

New opportunities

Panda Tea is one of the first French brands to implement communication through RCS.
The first lessons for the use of this brand new technology in the e-commerce sector are emerging:

A very good conversion rate
Boosting and reinforcing the brand image as well as the mobile strategy
A revolution in product promotion
A strengthening of the proximity with the customers

A type of messaging that is still little known and not very popular
Mobile compatibility is still poor

The RCS is proving to be suitable for our business sector, e-commerce. This first campaign showed a direct impact on drive-to-web. We now want to launch an RCS campaign based on a conversational commerce scenario: it would be a perfect medium to introduce a new product or a new product range.
