Insights, Strategy & the Idea
El Corte Inglés is a traditional retailer in Spain, looking to improve its positioning amongst young people. The main objective was to appeal to a modern, innovative, technological audience.
February 14th has become a very popular date in Spain, especially for teens and young people. Youngsters like to enjoy their lives. Friends are their main interest and appearance is very important for them. They love music, dancing, singing...
They are also urban and very interested in city events.
This is why we decided that San Valentine’s was a relevant territory to be associated with El Corte Ingles.
We created a Multimedia strategy around the 2º edition of “San Valentin se Baila”, an event that had been conducted in 2010 with great success among young people. We closed an agreement between El Corte Inglés, MSN, Xbox and Kinect to sponsor the event and gain closeness to our audience.

Creative Execution
The Strategy was carried out in two phases:

Phase 1: Event announcement (February 2 through 13)
• Microsite www.sanvalentinsebaila.com. Starring Carlos Moreno “El Pulpo”
• Online & Mobile campaign in MSN
• Promotional plan in Xbox channels
• Offline media campaign - radio-formula networks and free press- impacting more than 6.2 million people (OTS 3,6)
• Social Media dynamization reaching Top50 bloggers and Facebook, Tuenti and Kedin users.
• Public Relations campaign with more 200 media contacts.

Phase 2: Competition and Publicity (February 14-20)

• Hosted by Carlos Moreno “El Pulpo” and Ruth Medina, Dj and dancer.
• A tent with 4 Kinects for competition.
• A big canvas for Valentine’s dedications.
• In-store customization.
• The prize: Trip to Las Vegas + 1 Kinect + El Corte Inglés gift certificates.
• Special report posted in the Microsite.
• Editorial Support Plan in MSN and Xbox.
