CREATIVE IDEALink the SLS AMG with the Apple iPad, two exceptional objects, two iconic products, both as eagerly anticipated as each other.One month before the iPad’s launch in France, France’s top 220 Premier League players will each personally receive an iPad , loaded with a Mercedes SLS AMG application that will offer them a truly unique experience...When the iPad is opened, players will discover a promotional film about the car, followed by a game. The application offers a virtual driving experience of the new SLS AMG, which players can try out in person by arranging an exclusive test drive with the brand.
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.
We created a very privileged link with high-profile VIP clients to get them to test drive the SLS and also create other occasions to contact them trough their very own iPad (the Mercedes Benz link is updating regularly with the Mercedes events.)
