AWARDS SPECIAL

Effectively Brilliant MOST EFFECTIVE ADVERTISING NETWORK

I

f our Awards program is any sort of guide, 2016 was another stellar year for mobile marketing. All around the world, brands are waking up to the power of mobile in all its guises, from smartphones and tablets to connected cars and smart homes. And the quality of the entries in this year’s Awards was once again of the highest order. From Africa to America and from Europe to China, we saw some of the world’s biggest brands and their agencies putting their best foot – and work – forward for the consideration of our judging panel. Our judges’ task was as daunting as ever, sifting through more than 200 entries to filter the excellent, from the merely very good. Thanks to all of them for their efforts. When you look at the breadth of the entries, and the different sectors now turning to mobile to meet their business objectives – fashion, food and drink, travel, movies, finance, publishing, music automotive, hotels, healthcare – all human life is here. And that’s just the winners.

This year, we handed out Awards in 33 categories, including four People’s Choice Awards, where the winners were chosen by an industry vote, plus an additional Grand Prix Award, for the best piece of work overall, out of all those entries. Our winners ranged from the small and new, like Dice, which took our People’s Choice Startup of the Year Award, to big, well-established brands like Barclays, Lynx, Levi’s, Jaguar and Unilever. All shared one thing in common – a desire to harness the potential of mobile to create effective, meaningful engagements with consumers that can help build their brand and their business. Congratulations to all our winners, and to the companies who walked away from the Awards Ceremony with a Highly Commended trophy, in the seven categories where the result was almost too close to call. We can’t wait to see what next year’s Awards Program brings.

MOST EFFECTIVE CONSUMER SMARTPHONE APP

WINNER Sliide Airtime – Sliide Airtime Africa

S

liide Airtime provides people with ad-funded access to the internet through their mobile phone in emerging economies, where the average cost of mobile data is disproportionately high compared to people’s incomes. The company launched Africa’s first lock screen content discovery platform in Nigeria in March 2016. The app provides people with a new way of accessing content from their mobile devices, while simultaneously earning free airtime. After entering information about their interests, users receive personalised content, including news and entertainment hand-picked from local and international media sources, as well as branded content and ads, as

soon as they wake their phone. Sliide uses some of the revenue it earns from showing ads on the lock screen to buy mobile data from mobile operators. It then gives this mobile data back to its users, allowing them to access the internet for free, while providing advertisers with a new and unique platform to reach consumers through their most prized and most frequently used device. After seeing the numbers, which were shared with our FINALISTS judging panel in confidence, Cricket Wireless, SessionM and HackerAgency – Cricket Rewards App the judges John Lewis – John Lewis iPhone App decided that Lloyds Banking Group – Lloyds Banking Group Mobile App Sliide was a Santander and Nimbletank – KiTTi: An Account for Groups clear winner.

he Kobalt app enables music creators and artists to see where their money is being made, down to the performance of individual songs, type of song, rights or country, all in real time. Since its launch, the app has smashed all its KPIs, and received rave reviews, both from the music press, and the artists themselves, with Jonny Quinn of Snow Patrol and Gary Go, producer and songwriter for Rihanna and other artists, among those heaping praise on it. And despite the huge amount of data it allows artists to access, it’s very easy to use, with an intuitive user interface that makes it just as easy to get a top-line overview or drill down deep into the data. A worthy winner.

Politico, Urban Airship and DigitasLBi – Politico’s EU Referendum Tracker

I

n the run-up to the EU Referendum, Politico created the EU Referendum Tracker, which delivered content and notifications to iPhones via an Apple Wallet pass. The front of the pass featured graphics displaying polling results leading up to the vote on 23 June. After the vote, the pass switched to display live results as they came in from 382 voting districts. The back of

the pass provided summaries and links to Politico’s latest coverage. Politico’s European newsroom, working with Urban Airship, sent real-time content and notification alerts, informing passholders of key breaking news as it happened, and driving them back to the pass and updated story links. In a single week between launch and the

referendum vote, Politico surpassed its goal of gaining 10,000 pass-holders, representing 104 countries. Almost three quarters of registered pass users were new to the organization’s database. FINALIST The Times, Sunday Times and SapientNitro – The Times & Sunday Times app for iOS

app has been so well received by the artists, songwriters and producers who use it.

MOST EFFECTIVE INTERNET OF THINGS SOLUTION

WINNER

Ampersand & Ampersand – Ogilvy Lab Day Live

O

gilvy hosts 250 clients in its private Lab Day Live event each year. The theme of its latest event was the Internet of Things, and Ampersand & Ampersand was invited to create an app to enrich the audience experience. It used a network of beacons to deliver exhibitor information and real-time speaker notifications. As delegates were navigating the exhibition space, the list of exhibitors

would reshuffle based on the visitor’s proximity to the exhibitor stands. Delegates were also notified whenever a new speaker was on stage. Ampersand also gifted a ‘connected cactus’ to each willing visitor to take home. This triggered the delivery of relevant app content when users approached the cactus, delivering hand-picked, personalised content via the app, long after the day of the event.

It speaks volumes that in this category the app was up against stiff

competition from John Lewis and another Nimbeltank production, the Forscene touch video editing app, but still emerged triumphant.

Unilever, Mindshare UK and TMW Unlimited – Lynx CALM

M

ale suicide is the biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK, yet the subject is rarely discussed. Lynx teamed up with UK charity CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably) to surface the issue and get people talking about it. For its creative, the campaign used real-time social listening to pick out comparatively trivial topics that were

6

being discussed more than suicide, and then made this point across mobile, social and high-impact, out-of-home sites like London’s Piccadilly One, using the hashtag, #BiggerIssues. Finally, supporters were asked for permission to send out a synchronised ‘thunderclap’ message on International Men’s Day, to increase awareness of the issue. CALM CEO Jane Powell said: “I’ve seen

MOST EFFECTIVE RICH MEDIA CAMPAIGN

WINNER

Knorr, Joule, PHD, Mindshare, Edelman and Mullen Lowe – Knorr Love At First Taste

R

eaching the millennial audience isn’t the easiest challenge for a food brand best known for its stock pots, but this campaign did just that with a viral video showing couples sharing food on a first date. The video itself racked up 112m views across channels, but it was also supported across

social media, with an accompanying ‘flavour profiler’ web app. This garnered over 2.7m social actions taking place in the first two weeks of the campaign, including 400,000 likes and 200,000 shares of the main film and associated assets, with 1.87m people clicking through to find out their own flavour profile.

WINNER

Virgin Media & RAPP – Wi-fi Buddy

V

irgin doesn’t operate its own mobile network – it uses EE’s, and has to pay for every megabyte of data its customers use. Wi-fi Buddy was conceived as a way of keeping data costs down for both subscribers and Virgin itself. Via email, SMS and owned media, RAPP reached out to customers with a fixed monthly allowance and those on an

unlimited data tariff alike, showing a benefit message appropriate to their situation: respectively focusing on the cost savings, or the ease of using the app. The campaign drove 377,000 downloads, and reduced total data consumption by 10 per cent. It also clocked up an average SMS response rate of 6 per cent. Impressive figures and a welldeserved winner.

Leveraging location, it was able to accurately identify its premium 25-44 male audience via their real-world behaviour, and then reach them at the optimum point to drive footfall and sales to Tesco, its key retail partner.

The campaign saw great results, with a 19.7 per cent increase in sales of the featured Amstel products, and a 27.8 per cent increase in sales of all Amstel-branded products for the duration of the campaign period. Amstel also outperformed its competitors both during the campaign and in the weeks beyond. A terrific piece of work.

MOST EFFECTIVE PROGRAMMATIC CAMPAIGN

WINNER

Strongbow, Blis and Mediavest – Strongbow Cloudy Apple

M

ediavest turned to mobile to launch Strongbow Cloudy Apple. Location was used in three ways. Firstly, the target audience was hit with a rich media ad when they were close to Cloudy Apple OOH (Out of Home) sites, effectively delivering a double impression. In addition, devices that had visited supermarkets and pubs selling Cloudy Apple twice over the last month were

sent an ad when they were at home with time to engage with the content. Finally, an ad, including directions, was served to people in the target audience when they were within a 10-minute walk of a Cloudy Apple pub or supermarket. The campaign delivered a 19 per cent uplift in consideration for Strongbow Cloudy Apple, and an 18 per cent uplift in purchase

intent. Additionally, a footfall study revealed a 1.05x uplift in footfall to store, and a 1.35x uplift into pubs versus the control group.

Over 2.6m Levi’s ads were created by Millennials in just two weeks, and the campaign achieved an additional 2.9m consumer engagements in the form of likes, forwards, comments and shares.

relevant audience segments based on location history, and used tracking pixels for visibility on footfall numbers, meaning that Mindshare could work out exactly which creative executions, audiences and even publishers were delivering the results. The results are confidential, but the judges agreed with Mindshare’s assessment: “Our most successful mobile campaign to date”.

U

nilever, Mindshare and TMW collected their second award for Unilever’s Lynx brand, for this campaign to raise awareness of male suicide. By monitoring the trending conversations on social media, Lynx, in partnership with UK charity CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably), was able to highlight some of the extremely trivial things being discussed, while the issue of mail suicide continued to be ignored. It then

made this point across mobile, social and high impact out-of-home sites, using the hashtag #BiggerIssues. The campaign was so successful that it even led to the issue of male suicide being debated in parliament. Given the largely, and deliberately, frivolous nature of much of Lynx’s previous advertising, this was a tremendous achievement, deserving of the Charity category Award.

GRAND PRIX WINNER Levi’s and OMD China – The Levi’s Campaign That Levi’s Didn’t Create

A

fter much deliberation, the Grand Prix Award went to this outstanding Levi’s campaign that also picked up the Winner’s trophy in the Brand, Social and Fashion & Luxury categories. Levi’s was facing a huge perception problem among its target Millennials audience in China. To overcome it, rather than trying to convince consumers that it was original, it invited them to create original Levi’s content, by coming up with their own versions of Levi’s ‘We Are Original’ ad campaign. Through a partnership with TenCent’s QQ music app, consumers could create their

16

ad by combining an original Levi’s image – unlocked when they played popular songs in the QQ app – with their own strapline. Once the ad had been created, they could share it on WeChat, TenCent’s messaging platform. Meanwhile offline, the campaign invited China’s youths to star in their own Levi’s poster, striking a pose to show their originality, and then scanning a QR code to share these posters on social media. The results were probably beyond what even Levi’s and its agency, OMD China, could have hoped for – over 2.6m Levi’s

www.mobilemarketingmagazine.com

ads were created by Millennials in just two weeks, and the campaign achieved an additional 2.9m consumer engagements in the form of likes, forwards, comments and shares. This was a campaign which took a problem, and through the application of some lateral thinking that tapped into the current trend for user-generated content, turned it into an opportunity to engage with the brand’s target audience in new and unexpected ways, with great success. For that, it’s a richly deserved winner of the 2016 Grand Prix Award.
