#lowesfixinsix - a perfect use of Vine

on May 3, 2013 by Bridget Comments

So many brands try to jump onto a new platform without really having a strong idea behind it. I love how Lowe’s have used Vine to bring something interesting and useful to consumers which is truly inspired by Vine (rather than forced onto Vine).  It’s quite incredible to see what you can fit into a six second film!

BMW Italy: new campaign, old mistakes

on September 15, 2005 by Martina Comments

In Italy BMW, is presenting its Serie 3 with a Tv spot directed by Spike Lee (D’Adda, Lorenzini, Vigorelli, BBDO is the agency) and an online campaign which takes advantage of (rather intrusive) video ads. The video ads present exactly the same spot aired on TV, which is a nice spot, but is not really the kind of ad you’d like to watch online. The second disappointment is when you click on the banner: you are taken to the BMW Serie 3 website where your only option is to register in order to access the content. I’ve tried to fill the form, but there are just too many personal info you need to provide, I got annoyed and preferred to leave. I wonder how many people actually registered without even knowing the kind of content they will be getting…

The advertising future is mobile

on April 9, 2005 by Martina Comments

The Guardian reports the opinion of Andrew Robertson, recently appointed CEO of BBDO agencies’ network, who believes mobile phones will soon start playing a key role in advertising. The article also quotes a BBDO report which found out consumers would give up their television sets before sacrificing their mobile phones or home computers. I don’t know whether this is an imitation effect, or the advertising agencies are really starting taking mobile marketing seriously, but as a matter of fact last week everybody come out last week with statements about the importance of being mobile. I’ve already posted that Foote Cone & Belding which signed a deal with NeoMedia Technologies to develop mobile marketing campaigns. Now I’ve also found on New Media Age (reg. req.) that the boss of WPP Group, “Sir” Sir Martin Sorrell has sent out a formal request for proposals (RFP) to find a global mobile marketing partner.
