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.

Who hasn’t asked for a late checkout?

on August 20, 2013 by Bridget Comments

It’s great to see a brand flip industry standards.  The Art Series Hotel in Melbourne turned the problem of low occupancy rates into a communication opportunity as well as an additional revenue stream.  Overstay Checkout is a very clever promo and activation idea that touches on product innovation.

Publicis Net is behind this campaign, which is supported by a nicely designed website localised in several European languages.

Word of mouth: love it or hate it

on February 3, 2005 by Martina Comments

You can love it, you can hate it. But surely you can’t stop it. It’s the word of mouth, the viral effect that can damage (or even destroy) your brand or can make you a star in a few days. I enjoyed reading a very good article about viral marketing on Le Monde (in French), which usually doesn’t cover this kind of issues. Entitled “Les gu

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.
