Buy With Your Time IKEA

← Our Work Info


IKEA’s stores are not like any other furniture stores; they are a destination in itself. Singles, couples and families make a devoted commitment to go there specially that they’re located far away from the city centres. IKEA takes this brand loyalty seriously and in fact, the motivation for opening Dubai’s second store was so that customers living nearer to Jebel Ali would not have as far to travel for their IKEA shopping experience.
Ogilvy saw an opportunity to reward IKEA’s loyal customers who previously made the trip by turning the effort and time they went through to get there into a strength. By leveraging Google Maps timeline, we created a brand activation that converts time spent to make a trip to IKEA stores into a currency that allows people to buy IKEA products based on the average salary* of people living in Dubai. This worked through Google Map’s timeline function that records past routes taken, where customers were able to show how many minutes they had spent on previous IKEA trips and this accumulated time was converted into a currency that allows them to spend on IKEA products.
