Tide Text For Tips Campaign

As you can see from the screenshot above, consumers are prompted by Tide to enter the contest by selecting what type of washing machine they currently own, then submitting their mobile phone number, carrier (not sure why they need this though), and agreeing to the terms of use, then clicking the “Submit” button.

Once the consumer clicks the “Submit” button, they’re sent the following text message shortly thereafter confirming their participation in the text messaging campaign. In the confirmation text message, it tells consumers that they will receive tips, offers or promos every 2 weeks from Tide.
