Creators starting conversations
Kit Kat’s famous slogan has been encouraging the world to ‘have a break’ for decades. But the beloved chocolate brand also knows that everyone enjoys their breaks – and their Kit Kats – differently.
Kit Kat wanted to speak to the youth of Saudi Arabia with a creator-led TikTok campaign that sparked conversations around the best way to enjoy a Kit Kat.
With TikTok Creator Marketplace, the brand was able to partner with the top creators in Saudi Arabia to kickstart the conversation and lead a TikTok Hashtag Challenge. The playful debate got fellow creators and Kit Kat’s target audience involved in a memorable format that boosted ad recall and drove purchase intent among young people across Saudi Arabia.
Engaging target audiences with a creator-led hashtag challenge
Kit Kat’s campaign was centred around the #MyBreak hashtag, with each creator offering their own take on the best way to eat a Kit Kat: Do you take a bite from the bar? Eat one finger at a time? Or dip it in your tea? Turns out – it’s a hot topic.
The campaign was divided into three key phases:
- Kit Kat kicked off the debate
- Creators responded to the brand with their own ways of enjoying the treat
- The conversation continued via creator duets and debates in the comment section
TikTok Creator Marketplace enabled Kit Kat to search and partner with local creators from Saudi Arabia to create localised content that invited their target audience into the conversation.
Kit Kat took a unique approach by encouraging people to talk about how they personalise their experience with the brand – inspiring conversations that showcased product love in an authentic, entertaining way.
Boosting ad recall and driving in-store sales
Kit Kat’s creator campaign reached over 14M unique users on TikTok. By partnering with creators on TikTok Creator Marketplace, Kit Kat sparked conversations that put people’s enjoyment of its product at the heart of the campaign.
By involving creators and users in the debate, Kit Kat created a memorable campaign that showcased brand love and still felt authentic. The brand saw a 3.6% rise in purchase intent as a result of the campaign and a 5.2% lift in in-store sales.
