Describe the brief/objective of the direct campaign.
Only 36% of office based PC users turn off their computers every day. The environmental impact of this is staggering. In the US alone, it’s the carbon equivalent of an extra 2.5 million cars on the road every year. The HP Power to Change Campaign was launched in June 2009 to encourage users to commit to turning off their computers at the end of each day. With this campaign, HP not only hopes to affect individual user behaviour and attitudes towards energy wastage, but also inspire the long-term adoption of an environmentally sustainable lifestyle for the community as a whole.

Explain why the creative execution was relevant to the product or service.
We approached the brief with a very relevant issue that is contributing negatively to the environment, one which HP can own as an I.T. leader. By higlighting a simple action which anyone can achieve and recognizing that people need to see immediate results for their actions, the widget was the simple yet effective solution for everyone to keep track of their actions. Through this campaign, we've created a permanent asset for HP which sits on any computer, Mac and PC and this utility lives pass the campaign period by reminding users to switch off their computers everyday after use.

Describe the creative solution to the brief/objective with reference to the projected response rates and desired outcome.
The campaign was launched through HP Employees worldwide via an email from their senior management. As representatives of the organisation, they show their support for this movement by referring their friends and relatives via an online tell-a-friend tool which sends out personalized edms. The PR kits and minimal media buy was released later in the campaign to support it. Almost the entire budget for the campaign was dedicated to building the best widget, email, website that would not hinder participation and deliver the response we need. The creative solution was simple: just download a unique desktop application from the website. Besides reminding you to turn off your computer at the end of every day, the widget registers how often you are turning off your computer and, by comparing it against a global benchmark, translates this into an environmental impact (e.g. number of cars off the road). This information is updated on a global website, where you can view the collective impact of all widget down-loaders across the world, as well as that of your friends and your country.

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 had achieved the following: 603,733 site visitors. Over 30,000 widgets downloaded from over 100 markets. 2,935 digital badges installed across 9 social media platforms. 331 mentions in official medi.a Over 700,000 clicks on Chinese bulletin boards And, most importantly, an average daily turn off rate of 59%, representing a saving of: 23 tons of CO2 emissions. 38,937 kwh of energy. 1,557 cars off the road.
