Describe the objective of the promotion.
While Swype allowed consumers to operate at shocking speeds, checking off tasks quicker than ever before, how could it transport them to more than one place at a time? It seemed impossible and reserved for fiction and fantasy.
Or maybe not…
We removed the physical barrier of time and proved how Samsung’s Swype technology could transform the impossibility of being in multiple places at once into a reality.
We created an army of SuperSwypers – real-time roving personal reporters dispatched anywhere to provide moment-to-moment event testimonials – at any event, big or small using the Galaxy S with Swype.
Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation.
By harnessing the power of SuperSwypers, users did not have to miss out on a single experience. All SuperSwypers were carefully selected amongst young professionals through an intensive ‘social connectivity and active capability’ casting to ensure ultimate social advocacy. They were fully ‘socially’ equipped with pre-installed Galaxy S phones, SuperSwypers outfit and connected to the SuperSwypers platform posting their SwypeStories.
SuperSwypers was the answer to jammed packed calendars and it exponentially increased productivity all because of Samsung’s new technology. We were going to ensure users never missed out on a memorable moment, regardless if ten of them happened at once.
Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service.
We bend the laws of space and time and executed the best way to prove how miraculous Swype technology is, and how it can benefit everyone. Creating the SuperSwypers program (SuperSwypers, social connected platform with SwypeStories) connected the USP (Swype) with the concept inextricably.
Our SuperSwypers delivered the impossible – ability to live and experience multiple events at the same time. With the hurdle of time and place conquered, we achieved an extraordinary impact on users who were doubtful of Swype, but could not deny the superior technology of Samsung and how busy or unavailable no longer existed in their vocabulary.
Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results.
Over one month, our SuperSwypers:
• attended more than 160 events (consumers currency).
• generated more than 6,500 Twitter messages on Twitter, which expanded to more than 270,000 Twitter contacts.
• created more than 600,000 video streams through YouTube.
Overall, our efforts transcended all sales targets, resulting in the number one marketshare smartphone in NL ongoing.
And consumers realised the value and effectiveness of Swype technology compared with other smartphones:
• We accomplished top-of-mind consideration among 16-35 year-olds that ultimately led to sustainable brand preference and loyalty.
• Our TOMA was 34%, compared with 13% of our closest competitor.
