Long John Silver’s (LJS), the fast-food seafood brand, created a new audio campaign, which launched specifically for the Lent season.

Approaching Consumers With Solutions During Lent

Between Ash Wednesday, March 6, 2019, and Easter, April 19, 2019, many Christians refrain from eating meat on Fridays; queue Long John Silver’s and their seafood options.

Released on #NewMusicFridays on Soundcloud, the Long John Silver’s Lent campaign includes fishy songs performed by the rock band Coral Benders. Each Friday of Lent, a new song will drop, and a new LJS coupon will be redeemable.

Long John Silver’s promoted their food as an alternative to meat this Lent season via social media and distributed coupons, making an offer that many will find hard to turn down.

So far, the LJS record company, called Fish Yeah! Records, has released three songs: Seafood Mood, Pisces SZN and The Ballad of Long John Silver’s. Original artwork accompanies each song’s release.

Audio’s Mobility Offers Engagement

In order to redeem an audio coupon, consumers must use their smartphones to play the Fish Yeah! Records songs aloud in a Long John Silver’s location. The coupon offerings include free food and drinks with purchases and buy one, get one deals.

Long John Silver's Vice President of Marketing Stephanie Mattingly said, "Throughout the Lent season, our fans and followers will be treated not only to delicious and crave-able fish offerings, but also a weekly song and audio coupon drop from our house band, the Coral Benders."

Creating an audio campaign allowed for a deeply engaging and persuasive experience, which got consumers in the mood to eat fish — specifically LJS fish.
