Each webisode will tell the unfolding story of our 6 characters. Embedded in each episode will be a â€˜treasure hunt clueâ€™, when discovered and redeemed in-store, will unlock an invitation to an exclusive experiential brand event.
A holistic cross-platform view of engagement across offline and online media is at the heart of this campaign. We need a total cross platform view of the relationship between engagement and in store sales. This is something we are actively working on for our client base. We will drive our cross platform audience back to the store time again through a ‘sticky’ treasure-hunt. Embedded in the webisodes will be coded opportunities to experience exclusive experiential events. The physical invitations can be redeemed in store, with a password or ‘digital key’. The exclusive brand events will be streamed live and following the #adlife hashtag on Instagram will show you an array of user-generated content. Tie Instagram into your Ecommerce site We can use fans Instagram shots to drive sales on your ECommerce site; anyone who attends an experiential event can be given an individual item, a unique hashtag and They then display these photos next to the product images on your ecommerce site so potentially buyers can see how the item look on ‘’non-models.’
