Colorado-based SmashBurger needed help with branding a loyalty club as well as launching their new brand look and feel to the world. They wanted to showcase their Colorado roots, while creating a friendly and inclusive loyalty program for the nation to resonate with.

what we did

With the needs in mind, we took the simple concept of visually-striking imagery, their new brand standards along with compelling and simple copywriting to create animated content, compelling emails and a geo-targeted ad campaign to draw awareness to their new offerings.

“Colorado Pride – Available Nationwide”

“First Rule of SmashClub – Talk as much as you want about SmashClub”

We were responsible for developing and placing paid social media, video and PPC ads to promote the limited time offer, The Colorado Burger. This program was a bit closer to the heart, given it is our home town burger. We worked with the brand to develop some creative and entertaining social media and mobile ad content to highlight the burgers nationwide availability. We also designed and developed the standard loyalty and programmatic email program coining it “SmashClub.”
