1. Here to Create Legend Adidas
Back in April after months of hard work and training30000 people took to the streets of Boston to complete the 2018 Boston Marathon. To congratulate and help make the experience even more memorable for the participants Adidas captured and sent a personalised inspirational video to every single runner. Just a mere few hours after they'd crossed the finish line! Why? Well the 2018 marathon also coincided with the 30th year of partnership between Adidas and the Boston Athletic Association. To celebrate the brand had developed the Adizero Boston Boost 7 running shoe and needed a way to promote its release. So they created the Here to Create Legend campaign. The campaign team set out to highlight individual runners for 2018's marathon. To make it happen Grow (Adidas' digital agency for the campaign) used RFID chips on race bibs to transmit data such as pace and split times to advanced cameras to capture footage of each runner throughout the race. Grow also developed a custom algorithm to enable videos to be edited and shared just hours after the race had ended. Race runners were so delighted with the videos that Adidas received more than 80000 visits to the campaign microsite. With more than 13000 visitors continuing on to Adidas.com. Social shares of the videos generated more than 64000 social engagements. The email open rate for the campaign was 113% over the brand's year-to-date baseline. While actual product sales garnered per email was up 1189% above the year-to-date baseline!
2. LaundROO Lounge by LG
Ah the music festival. A rite of passage for many and one of the highlights of summer. Anyone who's been to a festival will empathize with the fact that you're bound to get a little well dirty. Mud sweat face paint and food spills can all ruin a carefully crafted festival outfit! Which is why LG Electronics chose to erect the huge interactive 3600-square-foot pop-up LaundROO Lounge experience at the Bonnoroo Music & Arts Festival in June. This was created to help campers at the 4-day extravaganza refresh [their] mind spirit and clothes . Check out the youtube video here: https://youtu.be/G2_rdXRWDl0 The pop-up boasted 25 washing machines 25 dryers and an LG steamer where concert goers could drop off their dirty clothes for a free "wash'n'fold experience". And while they waited mobile phone charging stations games LG OLED TVs and relaxing hangout spots were all provided as well as the opportunity to swap vintage clothes with fellow festival goers. At this year's Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, we're demonstrating the power of LG washing machines and inviting festival goers to go ahead and have fun, be themselves and #GetDirty because no matter how dirty or busy life gets, LG can take care of them on the dance floor and at home, said Dave VanderWaal Senior Vice President of Marketing LG Electronics USA.
3. Paving for Pizzas by Dominos
In June Domino's partnered with several towns and cities in the U.S.A to fix � potholes. Confused? What's a pizza delivery company doing filling potholes? We care about our customers and how we can make their experience better we often try to focus on existing tensions that could impact their interaction with our brand Jenny Fouracre spokeswoman for the brand told American news website CNBC. Clearly we hit on a big one potholes and what they can do to your pizza. Yes in an effort to ensure customer's pizzas maintain their integrity during the delivery process Dominos has provided grants to a number of locations around the U.S. for a campaign called Paving for Pizzas. Still confused? Put it this way Dominos have recognised that the state of America's infrastructure (it's roads in particular) is a huge source of pain for thousands of commuters (and pizza lovers) all over the country. Paving for Pizzas aims to fill in potholes so Domino's delivery drivers have a smoother ride and as a result so do the wider public. Now that's inspirational. Locations that have benefited from Domino's grant say it's a unique way to help tackle a problem. Mark Whitfield Director of Public Works for Milford Delaware saysit has enabled us to stretch our pothole dollars and do 'more with less'. While Darren Tristano CEO of CHD-Expert (a food marketing research firm) says every consumer/customer can relate to potholes especially in the north where snow and ploughing erode the surfaces more aggressively. The program dovetails nicely into their pizza insurance promotion and continues to put the chain top-of-mind with consumers for being active caring and taking some social responsibility. To date Dominos have received thousands of nominations for towns throughout the country and promise to pave all 50 states .
