Jose Cuervo “Endless Summer” Campaign

August 25, 2003 at 2:57 by Martina Comments

Jose Cuervo, the tequila maker, wants to drive grassroots awareness of its brand, therefore has decided to run an online campaign in the US to switch Labor Day from the first Monday in September to whatever is the official last day of summer.
The news is reported on DMNews today by Mickey Alam Khan who explains that the campaign includes banners, e-mail and the Web site at www.cuervonation.com. Jose Cuervo basically wants people to sign up for an online petition to delay summer’s end, later they will send the petition to the US Congress.
Sam Chadha, global integrated marketing manager at Jose Cuervo International in New York. says:

“For us, it’s getting close to our customers and learning more about them, and CuervoNation is the platform for the brand. The actual promotion mechanics encourage consumers to contact likeminded people to gather as many names as possible”.

Apparently it’s a smart marketing idea to collect names and demographics from online users. Personally I like the fact of using the “Endless Summer” concept, but I believe that such an official looking petition is exaggerated, making the campaign rather dumb.
