Smashing the competition in a head-to-head race for Raspberry Pi sales

Launching the Raspberry Pi B+

The much-anticipated launch of Raspberry Pi B+ saw element14 competing head on with its primary competitor as the only distributors of the new product. We took on the challenge, with a campaign designed to grab the attention of journalists and tech enthusiasts on launch day.

A VIP media drop-in event at the Groucho Club attracted top media titles, while an #extraraspberry teaser kicked off across element14’s social channels, urging Pi fans to visit branded ice cream vans around London — 100 products were given away to those who asked for extra raspberry sauce.
