Describe the brief/objective of the direct campaign.
BGH, one of the greatest electrical appliance companies in Argentina wanted to launch a range of new energy-efficient air conditioners. The problem: Argentinians themselves are not energy-efficient. And during summers the power supply crashes and the blackouts can go on for days.

Explain why the creative execution was relevant to the product or service.
The response to the challenge was immediate. Hundreds of buildings signed up and BGH air conditioners were considered to be the most energy efficient air conditioners.

Describe the creative solution to the brief/objective with reference to the projected response rates and desired outcome.
The BGH United Neighbours promotion invited people living in apartment blocks to work together to reduce the amount of energy consumed in their building. The promotion was launched on TV and outdoor, encouraging neighbours in their building to join the challenge. Neighbours in each building could upload the savings they made on a specially built website – www.consorciosumidos.com The prize: BGH energy-efficient air conditioners for each flat in the winning building.

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.
There was widespread media coverage for the campaign. People in the winning building reduced their energy consumption by 19.21% the other participating buildings made average savings of 9.68% and the whole population benefitted. During the promotion there were no blackouts at all.
