Describe the brief/objective of the direct campaign.
More and more people choose to send Valentine’s Day greetings digitally. Encourage people to send real postcards.

Explain why the creative execution was relevant to the product or service.
We wanted to people to send more postcards despite the fact that digital postcards are increasing. Instead we embraced the opportunity of the web and combined it with the old fashioned way of sending postcards.

Describe the creative solution to the brief/objective with reference to the projected response rates and desired outcome.
Digital postcards templates, customized for the user to choose any optional name for the motive, advertised on the web.

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 number of postcards that were sent increased 10 times compared to Valentine’s Day the year before.
