Describe the brief/objective of the direct campaign.
The challenge was how to transform the nightmare brief of the year into a powerful and fun campaign for the agency.
No time, no budget, no media plan and essentially no brief… for the most part greetings cards are a form of punishment feared by all designers!
Every agency, every client, every service provider has to undergo this stylistic exercise in which there is no obvious way of standing out from the crowd.
Describe the creative solution to the brief/objective with reference to the projected response rates and desired outcome.
The LIKE BOX, discover a ‘real life’ social media experience.
The Likebox:
A mailing to live in a real-life social media.
The box contains:
- A USB key to drive the user to the online video
- Facebook stickers
- Twitter post-it
- Foursquare mayor stickers
- Foursquare door hanger
The video:
A video to explain social media to our clients.
3 steps : Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare
Explain why the creative execution was relevant to the product or service.
Explain in a simple and off-beat way what social networks are all about:
Proclaiming ‘With the agency, you’re sure to like 2.011’, we are sending all our clients a ‘box’ containing Twitter post-it notes, Foursquare and Facebook stickers and ‘ I like' USB drive in the shape of an thumb with links to a video buzz campaign.
(Video entirely shot using staff from our agency).
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.
