We created a Giphy sticker pack, where half of the stickers had visible Lexus branding and the other half of the stickers had tens of small logos inside. The first half was tagged with Lexus related key-words. The other half was tagged with key-words which were related to Lexus main competitors – BMW, Mercedes, Audi. So when other car brands owners searched for some gif-content for stories from their brands our slightly branded stickers were the first ones to appear in search results.
The branding was so unobtrusive that even if noticed, those stickers were still used to create content for Instagram stories and were deliberately exposed to their followers.
