Describe the brief/objective of the direct campaign.
StarHit is a Russian magazine about celebrities, like Hello or OK! But with one big difference. Editor-in-Chief Andrey Malakhov is a celebrity himself.

The campaign's objective was to both build brand awareness and generate higher reader involvement from their female, mainly office worker readers who find the life of celebrities fascinating.

Our strategy was to draw these women into the limelight, make them a star for a moment and experience part of the lives they read about for real.

Describe the creative solution to the brief/objective with reference to the projected response rates and desired outcome.
How do you make the ordinary extraordinary? You make everyone a star. The solution was a viral campaign on the website.

Upload your photo, name and phone number and immediately a video of the Starhit editorial meeting begins.
The Editor-in--Chief Andrey Malakhov is desperately searching for the next ‘Face’ of the magazine with no luck. Until someone holds up a cover with, you guessed it, you on the cover. Malakhov is ecstatic. So much so he has to call you immediately. Your phone rings and there he is congratulating you.

Explain why the creative execution was relevant to the product or service.
Getting brand involvement with a magazine that deals with the unattainable world of celebrity meant bringing celebrity to the readers.

By giving them the chance to be, literally, a part of that rarefied world. And how did we get the word out? We emailed selected subscribers with a description of the project and a link and allowed the news to spread virally.

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.
