Describe the brief/objective of the direct campaign.
Within almost non existing budget we had to inform the advertising industry that Publicis is moving office.
The target audience: existing customers
Explain why the creative execution was relevant to the product or service.
We found announcing the address change in an original and entertaining way very appropriate for an advertising agency.
The ordinary massage turned into a creative idea, that evoked lots of buzz and talking in the advertising business.
Not less importantly, we proved that big ideas don't necessary require big budgets, which is particularly appreaciated in the middle global recession.
Describe the creative solution to the brief/objective with reference to the projected response rates and desired outcome.
We’ve organized an online sale of old advertising ideas and accessories
Carefully selected advertising memorabilia and ideas along with commentary were put up for auctions on Allegro, which is a local equivalent of eBay.
We used a data base of email addresses in the advertising community and sent messages 'A mate of yours recommends you check out the following auction. http://www.allegro.pl/items746703004_unikatowe_statuetki_ktr_i_kreatura.html'
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.
400 emails sent generated around 16 000 click throughs over one week only.
Not only we’ve managed to inform the whole advertising business about the address change, but also we’ve earned 423 Euro on it!
A week of great fun for the whole advertising business
The campaign was noticed and widely commented in media.
The authorities of KTR Festival, which is a local Cannes equivalent, proved to have balls and placed the Statuettes Auction on its website
