Liquid Lemon – using RFID for Eskom

An initiative by Eskom called 49M which “aims to inspire and rally all South Africans behind the common goal of saving electricity” is being marketed through social media and RFID.

Road show garners interest

The 49M team embarked on a country-wide activation road show to educate and encourage South Africans to pledge their commitment towards saving electricity.

RFID photo stations

Among several promotional activities used, Liquid Lemon's RFID powered photo stations were used for public to interact with the 49M brand.

How it worked

Users were given RFID enabled Wristbands which was registered to their Facebook profiles. Then they only needed to swipe their wristbands at the various photo stations, have their photo taken and it was instantly uploaded to their Facebook page as well as the 49M official Facebook fan page.
