Know The Signs
Client: Heineken International
More than 5 million people were captured
in 150.000 hours of brand engagement.
MetrixLab showed a lift in prompt awareness
Our challenge was to create awareness for alcohol over-consumption and to position Heineken as a socially responsible brand in a lighthearted way, among a male target audience in 12 markets.
Insights: our targets drink one too many during their nights out with friends. Friends do not like to discuss this topic so we need to create a conversation starter. Social networks are the place where our targets plan their night out, and share their photos afterwards.
In Know The Signs we created an entertainment concept in which 5 crazy archetypes starred in a viral video and a social network widget. Next we created social network pages as platform to ignite engagement, participation, user interactions and peer advocacy. The concept was created by Ruby.
4. Use of media
The viral video and widget were unleashed by both natural and paid seeding into blogs, over 100 video sharing portals and social networks like Facebook, Netlog and MySpace. In phase 2 we launched a MSN page take-over in 12 markets.
Know The Signs was a big hit. The campaign reached over 5 million targets online, attracted over 1 million site visitors and created 150.000 hours of active brand engagement and over 5.000 positive consumer reviews. MetrixLab brand tracking study showed a lift in prompt awareness and likeablity of 11%, within the exposed target audience.
