THE BRIEF : SPACE AD. THIS NEW TYPE OF ADVERTISING IS MEANT TOWARDS ETS. WE TRIED TO DRAW THEIR ATTENTION BY ADVERTISING UHA MIKAKUTO'S NEW PRODUCT, GUMI GUUM, WHICH SIMPLY RELEASES STRESS JUST BY CHEWING. WE ASSUMED WE COULD ATTRACT THE ETS' ATTENTION, SINCE THEY SHOULD HAVE GREAT STRESS UNDER SEVERE ENVIRONMENTS. PRESIDENT OF UHA MIKAKUTO BROADCASTED THE MESSAGE THROUGH RADIO WAVES USING A SPACE ANTENNA, WHICH IS ONLY ONE OF SIX IN THE WORLD. WE ALSO CREATED A CAMPAIGN THAT THE FIRST ET ARRIVING ON EARTH CAN WIN SPECIAL PRIZES. THOUGH, WE'RE STILL WAITING FOR THE FIRST APPLICANT FROM OUTA SPACE.
THE SOLUTION : THE CEO OF THE COMPANY HIMSELF BROADCASTED THE AD AND CAMPAIGN USING A GOVERNMENT OWNED ANTENNA TOWARDS ET’S. WE ALSO POSTED THE VIDEO OF HIS SPEECH ON YOU-TUBE AND ON THE WEBSITE, WHICH DREW ATTENTION OF EARTHLINGS AND CREATED A HUGE BUZZ.
THE RESULTS : GUMI GUUM HAS RECORDED A NO.1 WEEKLY SALES IN THE GUMMY CATEGORY. AND AFTER THE EXECUTION OF THE CAMPAIGN, IT WAS EXPOSED THROUGH OVER 127 MEDIA OUTLETS AND AS A RESULT, WE ACHIEVED 180% OF INITIAL SALES PROJECTION IN THE FIRST THREE MONTHS.
