An Uber experience: ride with the DJ

on October 16, 2013 by Jeremy Comments

The mobile app, Uber, has partnered with Afrojack, one of its celebrity advocates to highlight the VIP credentials of the service.

The idea is simple. As Afrojack is taken to his own event in a Bentley Flying Spur, Uber will add Afrojack’s ride to their app service for one hour. Users of the service will then be able to select the option to ride with the celebrity DJ and one lucky winner (plus a friend) will be selected and picked up by Afrojack and taken in the same car and given a VIP ride to, and VIP access at the dance event.

How Target took over Fashion Week with a 25ft puppet

on June 8, 2012 by Bridget Comments

I love this creative way in to promote the Missoni for Target collaboration.  As I started to watch the casestudy  I thought “Oh no, here we go, the creation of another fake mysterious online personality…” — but instead Mother New York delights us with a 25ft blogging, tweeting puppet who made a larger than life impression in New York during fashion week.  Watch the video and meet Little Marina and learn about her adventures in New York.

The shadow QR code

on May 2, 2012 by Martina Comments

Here comes a new integrated campaign made in South Korea that uses mobile to drive retail and e-tailing sales. Don’t give me the stink eye just because you saw QR code in the title of the post. Read on. The idea is pretty smart, and not too geeky, considering the popularity of QR codes in the country. Read more…

Housekeeping goes social (and mobile)

on November 13, 2009 by Martina Comments

Branded iPhone applications need one characteristic to be successful and appreciated by consumers: they need to be useful and, possibly, worth talking about to friends. I was quite doubtful when I received an email from Tide PR people promoting “The Tide Stain Brain”. But I was wrong, the insight the used and the service they want to provide is pretty good: a guide to stain removal, an application that helps consumers finding and sharing solutions for stains.

If you don’t have an iPhone you can still check out the online version of the app, not as since, but probably as useful.

Mobile Apps according to Contagious

on May 29, 2009 by Martina Comments

Recently, the guys at Contagious, sent me a complimentary copy of their latest report dedicated to Mobile Applications in 2009. Having developed an iPhone application myself (see Nike Goal post) I’m extremely interested in the topic and I have to say this report offers good food for thought, both for beginners and more “mature” marketers. I like it because it features the right balance of numbers, tips for brands, consumer insights and ideas’ review which, in my opinion, represent the ideal mix to inspire new projects.

Get older with an MMS

on January 16, 2009 by Martina Comments

The Epica Awards have been assigned recently. Among the others, you should have a look at the winner for the best mobile marketing campaign. The agency is one of my favourites, Forsman & Bodenfors very well know for a lot of cool things done on the Web for Ikea. This time they worked for AMF Pension with the aim to encourage people to start thinking about their pension while they were still relatively young.

Outdoor advertising invited passers-by to take a picture of themselves with their mobile phones and to MMS it to the pension-provider. A few minutes later AMF sent back a picture showing how the person might look when they are 70 years old.

The QR dilemma

on November 4, 2008 by Martina Comments

I’ve been fascinated by QR codes since the very beginning, a couple of years ago. And I’ve always asked myself the same questions: how many people have the QR reader software installed on his/her mobile phone? How many people really understand there is something they can do and access to through that barcode? Is it really worth and cost effective to launch an action with QR codes (outside of Japan, of course…)?

The disappointing thing is that I’m still looking for relevant answers to the questions above. I keep reading about QR actions but it’s impossible to get any number on the spread of QR enabled phones nor on the results of QR campaigns. To give you an idea of the lack of information in the industry and among consumers, I think it’s interesting to read an article Ralph Lauren has published on its online magazine. A fashion brand that explains its consumers a technology… let me say that this is a bit curious, unless you have realized nobody has interacted with your QR code…
