CAMPAIGN MEDIA AWARDS 2001: Best Use Of New Media for Consumers

Natural Interaction

Working with Gluemedia, Starcom IP pioneered near full-screen animated

commercials for One2One that users can interact with - "toast"


Clickthrough gave surfers access to two interactive experiences; an

anonymous e-mail message using talking electronic fridge magnets and

conversations between talking heads.

A sponsorship deal with FHM was struck, which saw transitional

advertising on the site, as well as a game that invited users to

match up famous couples.

The campaign generated an average clickthrough of 8 per cent and 72,000

users stayed on the microsite for more than a minute and a half. Some 20

per cent of users also clicked through to The FHM tie-up

reached more than 300,000 users and pushed up prompted ad awareness by

24 per cent, prompted brand awareness by 7 per cent and purchase intent

by 4.5 per cent.


Equinox devised a text messaging campaign to mirror a new MTV programme

format. The programme, Videoclash, relied on consumers voting by text

for videos to be broadcast.

By using text messaging, Equinox enabled MTV to speak to its audience on

a one-to-one basis at the right time and place. Some 250,000 viewers

were sent text message ads that they then passed onto their friends,

generating a "word of mouth" effect.

Following the launch campaign, the show enjoyed a 138 per cent increase

in viewers.


The launch of the Volvo S60 was purely through digital media, with no

press, posters or radio - uncharted territory for a car brand. Targeting

affluent adults in their late 20s and early 30s, the campaign hit

wireless media such as Palm Pilots. Mdigital set up a bespoke website

with games that conveyed that the S60 was faster and performed better

than its rivals.

The digital-only approach was so successful that Volvo is considering

similar campaigns for the future.
