Describe the objective of the promotion.
Increase public knowledge of the advertising agency Herraiz Soto & Co, communicate the brand’s values in an effective manner and contact new clients.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation
Herraiz Soto & Co is an agency that values ideas and, thus, holds the creative process in high esteem. Nevertheless, as creative thinkers involved in a mimicry process with computers, we have also become experts at multitasking. As a result, it has become increasingly difficult for us to concentrate on a single idea, and the quality of the process suffers. That is why Herraiz Soto & Co created a minimalist tool that cuts you off from your surroundings, facilitating the flow of ideas and giving back writing its pleasure. This tool was designed as a promotional vehicle to transmit the agency's values and philosophy, and because this is a free software programme, we are favouring it going viral.

Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results
Without having to invest a single euro in media, Ommwriter has been mentioned in more than 7,000 posts and 9,000 tweets. Herraiz Soto & Co has received several new contacts and celebrities such as Stephen Fry who have publicly discussed the programme: “@theyarnyard TY for the advice. Am d'loading @ommwriter's WP as we speak. Looks amusing. I'll try anything 2 improve the writing experience!” @Stephenfry- Actor, Author

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service
We detected a need in the text-editor category and, more widely speaking, in software programmes that aid concentration and the development of ideas. By distributing a valuable tool free of charge and associating it with the agency (Herraiz Soto & Co signs the software and appears as its creator on the website), the software’s values are linked to the agency.
