Digital advertising and marketing: only the best ideas worldwide, since 2003

Mobile marketing, lemon and… Tequila

September 22, 2005 at 7:14 by Martina Comments

From the UK, the news of a successful mobile marketing campaign run by Tequila brand Cuervo. According to Netimperative it achieved a surprising 80 percent response rate in a promotion giving away tickets for a night-club party. The call to text was diffused through PR, print and outdoor advertising in London. As Kirianne Green, Brand Manager at Cuervo explains, mobile communication is probably the best way to get in touch with people who like club-music:

“By using text message invitations as part of our campaign we allowed our target audience to communicate with us in a way that best suited them, which ensured impressively high response rates.”

  1. Hi Martina
    The PR was a bit misleading on this one.
    What actually happened was that they ran a competition (with sms entry), with the prize being free tickets to a party in a nightclub. The winners were then notified by sms.
    Of the *winners*, 80% turned up to get free entry. This shouldn’t really be that surprising, as the winners wanted to go – otherwise they wouldn’t have entered in the first place.
    So while it was good that the brand/agency included text entry/ticketing, it hardly pushed back any envelopes :-)
    Cheers.
