3 gets smart and targets MSN Messenger users

on May 19, 2005 by Martina Comments

With a smart move 3 UK eventually starts targeting younger segments of the mobile market launching a series of Critters characters adapted by Meme Digital. 3 has also decided to start an online marketing push by sponsoring the latest release of MSN Messenger with these characters. The version has been already downloaded by 10.000 users. I very much appreciate Hutchinson move and I hope they will update their marketing approach in Italy also… Here they’re only able to run pathetic TV spots starring second class testimonials.

MSN has announced the 7.0 version of its IM application Messenger and a new service called MSN Spaces through which millions of consumers can share their stories with their friends and family or the entire world. The advertising opportunities offered by the application appear to be particularly attractive. MSN has announced Volvo Cars North America will be the first to run a campaign on MSN Spaces, trying to take advantage of a deeper brand integration through a rather unobtrusive channel. Also Adidas and Sprite have chosen MSN Messenger to make users experience their branded content. Sprite has created “The Scenario” a branded online entertainment experience designed for teens, while Adidas offers branded theme packs to promote its newly launched Adidas_1 Show.
