Describe the brief/objective of the direct campaign., the French leader in streaming music was launching its Premium offers allowing subscribers to access 6 million tracks anywhere on their phone or computer, for 10€/month. The target audience was users over 25 years old, people that are already using Deezer and who could afford the premium offer. Deezer has always been free , so the challenge was to find an idea that would symbolise the benefit of the premium offer for consumers.

Explain why the creative execution was relevant to the product or service.
With the Infinite Playlist we wanted to raise awareness of the offer on social networks, where our target was. We also knew that Social Networks are a place for sharing. And music lovers are really eager to share the songs they like. So we facilitated this sharing function with a Facebook Connect that posted directly your song on the facebook wall of your friends. And as the offer was really interesting for music fans, the real challenge was to explain it in the simplest way possible and raise the awareness. That’s exactly what the Infinite Playlist did.

Describe the creative solution to the brief/objective with reference to the projected response rates and desired outcome.
As Deezer Premium offers the possibility to access your music anywhere, anytime, the idea was clear : With Deezer Premium, Music never ends. Deezer is all about creating your own playlists to enjoy the music you like. So we created the longest playlist ever, a playlist that never ends : The Infinite Playlist. A playlist made by all deezer users who had the chance to select a track, add it to the playlist, upload a picture and dedicate it to their friends & family, on Facebook (via Facebook connect), Twitter or by email.

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.
As a result, the dedicated website received 600 000 visitors in 2 weeks. During these 2 weeks, 20 000 people subscribed to the Premium offer, 20 000 songs were added to the playlist (56 days of music) and it’s still going on. Please note, in the absence of any indication of results, the jury cannot give a mark for this and the entry could suffer as a result.
