Describe the objective of the promotion.
Adobe CS4, the latest creative tool containing familiar softwares such as Photoshop and Illustrator and Flash. To increase sales promotion at the end of 2008, communication channels were made with people other than procreators allowing a broader target range. The WEB tutorial magazine "DEKIMAGA" was established to convey the fun in photoshop with the objective to obtain as many mail addresses (future touchpoints) as possible. The entire frame was structured to evoke the impulse of "if it's this easy, I'll give it a try!"

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation
It is implemented through the below page contents. -Official If you become a member, you would be able to view the entire modification tutorial process and download pertaining images. -User A corner where in each edition, a single user posting topic is selected introducing transforming techniques. -Professional technique An official topic is chosen in each edition showing how the "professionals do the job", such as their techniques and expression. -Deki report Choose from the official or user topic of each edition to post your modifiedimages. -Adobe Tips A corner where information to challenge the creative software of adobe is slowly released.

Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results
As a result, we were able to obtain beyond our initial target mail address of 20,000 to a large 58,000. In addition, viral effects were seen with user postings reaching up to over 4000.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service
Users were successfully lured through preparing various topics from functional to entertaining. The core target was shifted in Adobe from "procreators" to amateurs, which was structured to enable the experience of "I did it!".
