Use the highest used media of young people in Paraguay: the cellphone.
The purpose was to use, in addition to the traditional media mix, the mobile phone as a means to communicate the brand’s message in an innovative manner while involving the consumer.
Text messages (SMS) were sent to a database of mobile phone users inviting them to activate a ringback tone of the brand (without cost).
Users had the option to choose between four different rhythms of the same music and another option to exit.
Insights, Strategy & the Idea
The challenge was to create a huge Coca-Cola summer hit using an innovative and high-impact method to reach the desired market segment.
Teens were the main target in this case. The brand has a strong and close relationship with his target, since it provides them with content and fun in its campaigns.
The insight: I reflect who I am and what I feel through my music, and this is how I choose my ringback tones.
This was relevant for the client since they committed to their objective of having a summer hit, at a very low cost. And for the target audience, they had a music to reflect them, and with no cost for them.
The Promo / PR Ad titled PROMO RINGBACK TONES was done by KAUSA CENTRAL CREATIVA,FWD - MPG advertising agency for product: Coca-cola (brand: Coca-cola) in Paraguay. It was released in the Apr 2009.
