Describe the brief/objective of the direct campaign.
Inspire spontaneous travel during the last leg of the Scandinavian Airlines million-seat fare sale.

Describe the creative solution to the brief/objective with reference to the projected response rates and desired outcome.
We put together a competition on Facebook where SAS fans through changing their Facebook profile picture and posting a matching wall picture on the SAS Facebook fan page, registered to win a free trip. We play around with the context of the Facebook wall and feed, the fans themselves both become the spreading mechanic and providing the execution.

Explain why the creative execution was relevant to the product or service.
Scandinavian Airlines have a highly active Facebook fan page with 60,000 fans. This was our way to do something special for the fans, and at the same time encourage them to show their love for the SAS brand.

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’re not going to lie. The campaign was meant to fly under the Facebook radar but it got shut down after only 24 hours. But that’s ok, because by then we had already lured thousands of Facebookers to Sas.se, picked a winner and sent him off to Paris.

When we started working with Scandinavian Airlines, the brand portrayed pilots in front of great air carriers—and translated to a brand very distant from the lives of its customers. We’ve since flipped it. SAS is now a warm, charming and playful brand who take pride in interacting with its customers.
