Web3 Pro brand marketing with collectible NFTs for Lamborghini

by Bekkah Frisch, Marketing Executive, Web3 Pro

Web 3 Pro, a leading Web3 martech platform that helps brands create and deliver Web3 marketing strategies, is helping Lamborghini enter the world of metaverse marketing with a brand campaign that combines innovative gamification and collectible NFTs to drive consumer engagement.


In its creative marketing campaign, the Italy-based luxury automotive company auctioned off five tangible items that were paired with digital art pieces in the form of NFTs. In addition, pieces of carbon fiber that had been sent into space in 2020 were incorporated into the NFT offering. These “space keys” are carbon fiber squares housed in a special case and engraved with individual QR codes. The codes correspond to the accompanying digital artwork created by the artist Fabian Oefner, who is known for his series of mind-bending photographs highlighting the mechanical world.

Campaign Review

What went well:

  • Teaser campaign on social media
  • Press coverage
  • The auction process
  • Partnership with artist Fabian Oefner
  • Teamwork between Web3 Pro, Lamborghini, Fabian Oefner, and RM Sotheby’s in promoting to their own individual communities
  • The creation of a unique NFT that made a statement
  • Overachievement of financial targets

How to add further value in future campaigns:

  • While social network marketing worked well, traditional marketing should be added too
  • Influencer marketing and email campaigns to be included
  • Leverage the Lamborghini Unica app to alert customers
  • Consider adding cross-promotions through existing Lamborghini partnerships/sponsors

Using the auction’s success as an entry point,  Lamborghini is now increasing its digital focus on brand awareness through the sales of unique drops, community engagement campaigns, and gaming opportunities.
