Insights, Strategy & the Idea
The challenge for this campaign was to achieve two objectives at the same time.
1) To demonstrate that with T- MOBILE’s new social media smartphone service (called MyCommunity) everything is possible.
2) To engage the consumers in T- MOBILE’s corporate social responsibility programme - the fight against HIV/AIDS.

But how should one combine a sales focused product campaign with a social topic?
The answer: to start a project that proves the quality and usefulness of the product, and do it for a good reason.

According to the long-term campaign strategy of showing consumer projects, we were looking for someone who planned a HIV/AIDS charity project and who could find our service helpful. We found the ideal person and project: Philippe.

Creative Execution
The heart of the campaign was a real consumers project: Philippe’s project. The 20yo Philippe walked 863km on foot through Austria. He organised his entire journey, the route, lunch invitations, sleeping places etc ONLY with the help of his smartphone and his social media community. He didn’t spend one penny, even better he raised funds. His motivation was to raise awareness of HIV/Aids, a purpose that fits the T-MOBILE Community Social Responsibility programme perfectly.

His 5 week walk through Austria was the perfect proof that you can make anything happen with the power of your community and the T- MOBILE social media smartphone service.

Social media, PR, media co- operations, events and classical advertising worked together perfectly in this cross media campaign. On facebook Philippe found new friends every day that helped him to go on. 36 daily episodes on TV told his story. Press, posters and TVCs explained the product and drove sales.

Results and Effectiveness
The results were outstanding.
PR created nationwide press, tv & radio coverage.
Philippe’s project became the talk of the country.
+ 60.000 facebook fans in 5 weeks (the no. 4 facebook page in Austria)
+ 15.000.000 online impressions
Sales were remarkably above expectations.
Hundreds of people accompanied Philippe on his way.
And most importantly HIV tests amongst teenagers grew by 25%.
