I never thought of writing about Kellogg’s (temporary ‘tweet’ shop in London)

Oh my God! What a fantastic marketing idea and social media experiment. Don’t you think so? I trust this is a great prove of what very creative brains can do when clients are open minded and ready to try new formulas of market approach.

“The standalone store – thought to be the first to allow customers to pay by tweet instead of money – is being used to mark the company’s move into the savory crisps market and is open until Friday 28 September”. Its’ tomorrow, hurry up!! 


“The temporary store encourages customers to pay for a packet of cereal by tweeting a message about the snack range. As well as the company’s first move into crisps, the shop is also Kellogg’s first venture into the retail arena with its very first dedicated physical space in the UK.
The shop is staffed by a number of iconic Special K girls in red dresses, who will check each customer’s Tweet before handing over the crisps.
The Tweet Shop is lined with hundreds of packs of crisps, a ‘try before you buy’ snacking area and a ‘community notice board’ that captures social media reaction to the unique retail space”. (abstract from Gemma Balmford article. Thanks Gemma)

Bartering is growing as the economic situation is raising and this is both a new way of bartering and a new boundary of Retailing. A tweet for a sample product. Ingenious.             I would love to read the marketing report.
