Brand stories and you
The broadcaster Tele5 has launched two new advertising opportunities: “Today is your day” and “This is your week”. Advertisers are being given the option to sponsor whole days or entire weeks of Tele5's digital channels. Brands like Coca-Cola, Philips and Orange have already taken advantage of this facility.
Why it matters
Media saturation and fragmentation means that brands have to look for new techniques in old media to communicate their messages. What does exclusive domination of a channel mean for the type of message delivered through these media? Will we see more consecutive ads that create a real brand story? Perhaps such stories could even be linked to a webseries where consumers can influence content?
“Because I like you” is an unbranded spot that has reached almost 1.6 million views in a week. The video has been created by three young guys from Milan, who are now trying to offer it for sale.
Telecommunication company TMN launched a television Christmas campaign using QR codes. Once registered online, viewers can try to win several prizes (from smartphones to tablets) in an online advent calendar. The campaign is also promoted on three-dimensional billboards equipped with motion and sound detectors.
