Describe the brief/objective of the direct campaign.
Create special awareness and support for the fight against torture and abuse. Winning hearts and minds of new activists, donators, and anyone interested.
Explain why the creative execution was relevant to the product or service.
After this and as a sign of support the user can set up his own candle and be
part of an ever-growing community against torture and abuse.
Potential visitors were collected directly on the Amnesty International
homepage, as well as in several Social Communities and via Tell-A-Friend.
Describe the creative solution to the brief/objective with reference to the projected response rates and desired outcome.
In the beginning the web site takes the user to a dark room, where he can only
hear the screams of a person that is being tortured. By holding a lighter in front of a webcam the user is able to project light into the dark room. This action exposes the aggressor and for the time the light is being projected, he goes away and stops torturing the victim.
Describe the results in as much detail as possible with particular reference to the RESPONSE of the target audience including deliverability statistics, response rates, click throughs, sales cost per response, relationships built and overall return on investment.
On average over 11,000 visits per day in during the campaign
period from September 2009 through January 2010. So far
over 4,000 candles have been set up.
The Direct marketing titled LIGHT THE DARK was done by SAATCHI & SAATCHI BERLIN advertising agency for product: Human Rights Awareness (brand: Amnesty International) in Germany. It was released in the Apr 2009.
