Describe the brief/objective of the direct campaign.
Every year, thousands of software packages are released in the world, making it increasingly difficult to differentiate yourself when it's time to launch a new browser. In this context, and with a budget of only 40 thousand reais, how to differentiate amongst so many download buttons?
Describe the creative solution to the brief/objective with reference to the projected response rates and desired outcome.
With so many companies asking people to test their programs, we decided to do the opposite: not ask anybody to do anything.
Explain why the creative execution was relevant to the product or service.
In an action never done before, notebooks were abandoned in the streets of São Paulo. Only Internet Explorer 9 installed and with 3G access. A message invited people to use the computer for 15 minutes and then leave it wherever they wanted. Messages on the screen suggested posts and photos on major social networks. And of course, everything was recorded with hidden cameras, which resulted in a viral video for the Internet.
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.
• 7 million page views
• More than 3,000 quotes in social networks
• 1000% return on spontaneous media.
