CAMPAIGN MEDIA AWARDS 2001: The Overture Award - Best Use Of New Media Business-To-Business

IBM Multi-platform Customer Acquisition Pilot

Mdigital worked with Guardian Unlimited to pioneer a genuinely

multi-platform campaign for IBM's Personal Computing Division. PCD

included a programme to sell IBM hardware direct to customers and six

Guardian platforms provided a wide range of channels to target business

and personal purchasers.

The same offer and tagline - the IBM ThinkPad for £799 - ran

across The Guardian newspaper, its WAP edition, e-mail alerts, The

Guardian's interactive TV channel on ntl, the website and via PDA on The

Guardian's content channel on the Avantgo platform.

IBM Europe's Andrew Brown commented: "Not only was it new and innovative

work but it is now seen as a springboard for IBM in co-operating with

MindShare and other media owners to build more complex, integrated and

advanced mobile, PDA and web-based campaigns."
