Profero on board for Lufthansa campaign

on June 23, 2003 by adverblog Comments

Profero, a UK digital communications agency, today announced the launch of a new UK campaign for Lufthansa. The aim of the campaign is to make the UK target audience aware that they can save by travelling with Lufthansa, and still not give up the comforts of flying with a traditional airline. It also promotes the online booking services on Lufthansa.co.uk and its benefits including a �10 discount on the fare. Media placement is concentrated on the travel sections of portals such as Ask Jeeves and Lycos, news sites and travel sites (e.g. Conde Naste Traveller and Timeout), and is aimed at creating maximum reach with the target audience. Creative (produced by Plan.net, copy by Profero) consists of banners and pop-ups as well as e-mails. On Profero’s web site you can see examples of the creative.

Mobile marketing goes to Hollywood

on June 23, 2003 by adverblog Comments

Two upcoming summer releases, “The Hulk” and “Legally Blonde 2″ will be promoted also using wireless marketing. As IAR reports, both Universal Pictures and MGM have decided to start mobile campaigns with text-messaging sweepstakes and themed ringtones. Since “word-of-mouth” it’s a key issue in a movie promotion, the decision to start using cellular phones to get people talk about movies appears to be particularly interesting. In my opinion, the problem, again, might become the spam. Mobile phones (and mobile users) gotta be handled with care, privacy respect is not an option.
