Describe the brief/objective of the direct campaign.
To encourage people to minimise electricity consumption
Explain why the creative execution was relevant to the product or service.
Getting electricity is way too easy and has made people not to think before plugging in. That’s why we created a reminder, right at the source of electricity - the Plug, to remind people to use electricity in a more cautious way.
Describe the creative solution to the brief/objective with reference to the projected response rates and desired outcome.
Instead of asking people to unplug, we suggested that they plug in.....but in a different way. Following our creative concept of “plug in, save energy”, we created... specially designed “plugs” from environmentally-friendly paper to transform sockets into other useful home accessories, such as a Dog Food Bowl.
Describe the results in as much detail as possible with particular reference to the RESPONSE of the target audience including deliverability statistics, response rates, click throughs, sales cost per response, relationships built and overall return on investment.
We successfully transformed sockets from a source of pollution into a means of saving energy. With the URL printed on the Dog Food Bowl, people were attracted to our Facebook group, more ideas were generated and participation from the general public increased. The campaign was further spread among Facebook users and, as a result, more people joined and shared their ideas for an energy saving plug. Even now, our Facebook Group members and new designs keep growing in numbers.
The Direct marketing titled DOG FOOD was done by Jwt, Hong Kong advertising agency for product: Environmental Awareness (brand: Friends Of The Earth) in Hong Kong SAR China. It was released in the Mar 2010.
