The Beano yesterday launched a new marketing campaign, Dennis and Gnasher’s Golden Ticket, the biggest promotion of the comic brand for years.

The campaign will be promoted by TV advertising, online display advertising, PR and social media activity around prize winners, with planning and buying handled by Ten Alps Media.

ATOM Marketing acted as consultants for DC Thompson throughout the campaign, which features unique codes on every promotional copy of The Beano and its monthly companion, BeanoMax, in the form of a ‘Golden Ticket’ during August, with consumers being in with the chance of winning prizes such as a family holiday to Universal Resort Florida, ride-in Daleks, iPads, toys, games and PGL UK adventure holidays.
