Describe the brief/objective of the direct campaign.
The target audience for TDC - the market leader in the Danish telecommunications industry - was existing customers. The strategy was to retain customers by rewarding the loyalty of existing customers. The longer the relationship, the greater the reward.

Describe the creative solution to the brief/objective with reference to the projected response rates and desired outcome.
The creative solution was to activate the "loyalty and long relationships" theme by using the already known and popular characters of TDC's advertising universe (Britta and Claus) to illustrate the campaign theme. Britta and Claus would be celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary, giving us a relevant frame for celebrating our loyal customers through rewarding them with a gift certificate - the longer they had been with TDC, the greater the gift.

Explain why the creative execution was relevant to the product or service.
The creative solution was well integrated into TDC’s communication strategy (focus on existing customers) and the story about the main characters’ wedding anniversary was relatable and easily transformed into a campaign strategy. It added to TDC’s brand strategy (be inclusive, not alienated) by celebrating customers and the relationship with TDC, sparking sales as well as sympathy.

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.
The goal was to reduce turnover by focusing on existing costumers. This in a market where all other tele providers were focusing on attracting new customers with quick recruitment deals.
This goal was obtained - as the turnover was reduced by 40% as a result of the campaign.
Also the campaign generated extraordinary result in terms of:
80 % opening rate on emails
170,000 campaign site visits
4,500 used gift certificates during the campaign (4 weeks)
Online banners had an impressive click rate - twice as high as normal online banners.
