DHL IT WITH CAPITAL FM
DHL's brief was to target ad hoc users of express carriers - those who use such services intermittently - and ensure that they had DHL at top of mind when the need arose.
MVi Total Sponsorship's response was to develop a unique tie-in with Capital FM.
Capital FM gives away as many as 100 prizes to listeners every week.
So, DHL became the radio station's official prize delivery company, with the presenter promising the lucky prizewinner: 'We'll DHL it over to you today.' In addition, two promotions were developed to promote DHL's international capabilities. The results included 26 per cent spontaneous awareness of the company among listeners.
HONG KONG RADIO PROMOTION
Drum PHD set out to boost Hong Kong's appeal via a tie-in with two radio stations, Classic FM and Virgin Radio. The strategy was to take presenters to Hong Kong and turn them into ambassadors of the city. For Classic FM, this meant Henry Kelly in Hong Kong, while Virgin offered Suggs in Hong Kong. The results included an upturn in visitors and a positive effect on relations with trade partners - all for a budget of just pounds 250,000.
