Review: Baking Bad, a recipe book by Walter Wheat


Whilst travelling back from work one day, I tweeted @JustEatUK about a new advert they had hung on the train I was using. Complete with TV Box Set food puns printed on a takeaway receipt, it was a recipe for engagement.

@TGIFridaysUK have been really clever in using just one hashtag to bring some fun and free promotion to the launch, #BurgerFace. This allows their customers to send in their best picture of themselves wrapping their mouth around one of the new mouth watering burgers. The success of this alone can be found by simply searching for #BurgerFace.
