Describe the objective of the promotion.

Perrier has always been a brand that works with two dimensions. From a rational side, its historical promise of extreme refreshment. From a more emotional one, its “hype” personality. The stronger these two dimensions, the more magnetic and iconic the brand becomes and can compete with both sparkling waters and soft.
The last years, the emotional side was a bit forgotten and Perrier started to be disconnected with a younger target. In parallel of traditional communication, Perrier launched in 2010 a limited edition to accelerate sales, make the brand sexy again and recruit younger consumers.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation.
It all started with Dita Von Teese, a perfect match with the premium and sexy image of Perrier. In order to offer more than just a limited edition, an online experience was created. We asked Dita Von Teese to tease on social networks a month before the launch of PerrierByDita. During all summer, the Perrier Mansion was a blast. It was such a success that we launched a second chapter in December, with a new room in the Mansion. And to make it even more connected with the trendsetters audience, we released a mobile version of the Mansion via iAd.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service.
Well, a limited edition is not necessary new for the category. But a limited edition from Perrier couldn’t be déjà-vu. So the challenge was to reinvent this quite classic exercise.
We decided to go further than the product experience and immerse consumers in an interactive, transgressive and addictive experience, more able to reinforce the magnetism of the brand towards a younger target. Digital was quite new for Perrier. People were used to see incredible TVCs or prints from the brand, now it was time for them to participate, to be engaged in the brand universe through sexy and awesome experiences

Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results.
Both chapter 1 and 2 of the Perrier Mansion have generated excellent results:
– More than 800 000 unique visitors.
– 6 minutes spent on average on the website.
– 1,5 million video views on YouTube.
– More than 4000 media and blog fall out
– Over 30000 fans on Facebook.
– +7 pts image on the « trendy » and « modern » items
The iAd generated an extraordinary level of engagement:
- Time spent on the iAd above 2 min which is 2 times the iAd average.
- A click rate of 1,85% which is 10 time the average click rate on traditional web-banners.
