Appletiser: The Appletiser Fountain

To celebrate Appletiser being an Official Sponsor of Ascot, we wowed racegoers by creating a beautiful fountain made of 1000 of its iconic green bottles.  We then teamed up with racing lover, Jodie Kidd, to be our brand ambassador and staged a photoshoot at the fountain.  Pictures and interviews were pitched to media, resulting in stand-out branded coverage including Express Online, Daily Star, Mail Online and Daily Telegraph.  Social buzz was generated on Twitter with users changing the fountain formation with hashtags. Almost 300 tweets were generated and a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot received over 6000 views.

Virgin Media: High Speed Selfie

To mark the start of Virgin Media’s £3bn ultrafast broadband rollout, which kicked off in Manchester earlier this month, we created the world’s first High Speed Selfie photo booth. To launch the High Speed Selfie photo booth to the media, we teamed up with Stockport born pop star and actress Sarah Harding for a photo shoot, making her the first person to trial the High Speed Selfie. Eye catching images of Sarah’s Selfie were released to the media, securing coverage in the Daily Star, Daily Mirror, Mail Online and a front page in the Manchester Evening News, amongst others. Following this, the booth, which gave visitors the opportunity to be photographed whilst feeling the force of a 270mph wind machine, was transported to Manchester’s iconic Piccadilly Gardens. Open to the public for two days, the booth saw 300 visitors, creating 300 High Speed Selfies, giving Manchester a taste of Virgin Media’s high speed broadband.

Epson’s Sensewear launch: breaking into a new sector

To support Epson’s break into the wearables market, we confirmed 23 national, lifestyle and tech journalists for the launch event, offering interviews with former Olympian Greg Whyte and an interactive training session.

We then used Epson ambassador Harry Judd, who had suffered from an ectopic heartbeat, to take Epson’s latest tech far and wide. Had Harry worn an Epson tracker, he believes he’d have spotted his heartbeat irregularity sooner – a message which featured in everything from the Daily Mail and Evening Standard to New! magazine.

Bolstered by a reviews programme, the campaign has achieved 30+ pieces of coverage to date.

The video, images from our photoshoot, interviews with Nadia and a release on the nation’s imperfections secured over twenty pieces of coverage including the Mail Online, Mirror Online, Daily Star, Reveal, New! and Love It!

EMC: Hybrid Cloud Twitter Chat Champions

Tasked with increasing EMC’s share of voice amongst social influencers around “hybrid cloud,” the Brands2Life team developed the #HybridCloudChat, an online panel discussion featuring a live illustrator and taking place via the Crowdchat platform.

Following extensive social media influencer research, two chats engaged online influencers, customers, partners and EMC spokespeople alike, delivering around 5,000 views with a potential reach of 3.9million. The content is being used globally by the sales team to engage with customers and prospects, and is the basis for new lead generation campaigns, delivering on the promise of an integrated marketing approach. Launch of AlphaBetty Saga with Susie Dent

To launch the first ever word play game, AlphaBetty Saga, from King Digital Entertainment (the creators of global phenomenon Candy Crush) we commissioned research into the nation’s spelling abilities. We tested the spelling abilities of 1,000 adults using words from previous Key Stage 2 spelling tests in exam-like conditions. To add gravitas to the findings we partnered with lexicographer and Countdown’s resident wordsmith Susie Dent who acted as a spokesperson and provided top tips on spelling. Coverage included, MailOnline and amongst others. Coverage was also secured in over 20 radio stations, including BBC 5 Live, BBC Scotland and BBC Radio Oxford.

Epson EcoTank’s Launch: Creating Some Print-speration

It’s not every day a company redefines the market it’s known for, so when Epson came to us with its EcoTank product, a printer with no ink cartridges, we had to cause a stir.

Tapping into the big debates surrounding the product (cost of genuine ink / revolution in the print industry / consumer cost savings), we secured briefings with the FT, Guardian, Sunday Times, Mail and Independent (front page). A consumer tech launch event and reviews programme bolstered outreach, helping drive 30+ pieces of coverage, including 12 nationals.

Nominet: Knowthenet’s Paparazzi Parents

Brands2Life developed a campaign for Nominet’s online advice site, tapping into a familiar concept – parents sharing images of their kids online. We worked with the Parent Zone to measure just how many photos were being uploaded by parents, finding that by age five the average child has almost 1,000 photos on the web. However, fewer than half of parents have checked their privacy settings. The campaign delivered blanket coverage, including a five minute segment on Good Morning Britain, as well as coverage with the Press Association, The Times, Daily Mirror, Daily Express and Daily Mail, regional radio and worldwide syndications with an estimated reach of over 100 million.
