Marketing decision makers were invited to submit their contact information into a special website, and a few days later they received a new set of business cards, complete with a voice-over of their details, exciting background music, and some special effects. Each was designed and recorded with the individual person in mind, with the delivery and effects suited to their job and to their personality. The business cards themselves came with a QR code printed on them, which could be scanned to ‘hear’ the card. These were certainly cards that would not be forgotten among a pile of others.

Everything comes across better with sound. Shapa, Israel’s largest radio media buyer, has for many years been promoting the use of radio advertising under this premise. In 2012, to target individual marketing decision-makers in a recessionary, budget-conscious environment, Shapa saw the opportunity in a very commonplace communication tool: the humble business card. We all know that business cards are unique and personal, but they still just end up in a collection of other generic cards. So Shapa decided to take these boring cards and give them a new sense of fun and distinctiveness, using the brand idea – The Power of Sound.

Marketers loved their sound cards, and as word spread, Shapa received hundreds of requests for new business cards through the website. Each unique execution reminded them that messages really do come across better with sound, leading to a significant number of new clients for Shapa.
