Describe the brief from the client:
To activate their corporate brand by make use of their sports content. To foster even better image of the brand for runners and sports fans.
Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation:
Brand message: "Start your time! Let's go meet new me" Our interactive campaign launched at Tokyo Marathon2012, in which 35.500 professional and amatuer runners participated. We used an integrated color and design based on SEIKO timer - yellow and black.
Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results:
Special web site for the campaign had 1000% view compare to the last year. Publicity reached to 3 billion yen. Because its interactivity, participants could really experience the brand message and some of them were really seeking their hand-written in-train ad and spread that in their SNS and that made a bigger buzz.
Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service:
It was suitable because our target audience - runners were interatively involved in the campaign. We focused attention on runners' finishing time which every runner thinks a great deal of.
