How Woolworths really operates!

What do you think about the new Woolies plagiarism debacle. Leave your comments below.

Touchee Feelee

Fair warning: This isn’t going to be a happy post, because what’s happened has left me very, very sad.

It’s not easy being a designer, and even less easy being a small, independent designer. You’re constantly having to find a balance between paying your bills, and being true to your art. For most designers, being approached by a big retail chain would sound like a dream come true. Right?

Wrong.

I was approached by the buying head of homeware at Woolworths at the beginning of 2013. (For those of you outside SA, Woolworths is the equivalent of Marks & Spencer or Macy’s.)

A meeting was set up to meet the buying head and another homeware buyer, to discuss having some of my Touchee Feelee range form part of Woolworth’s new “artisan” range. I took samples of all my work to the meeting, and was asked if they could hold on…

7 Great Examples of Experiential Marketing Campaigns (Video’s)

Engagement means that audience is able to engage with the content or the medium of delivery….engaged media is designed to create an individual experience for each person engaging the media or message. Call to action has to be instant and equally responsive to crowd input.

Following on from my last post on experiential marketing, I thought it would be good to pop up a short video rich post, showcasing what I think are 7 great examples of experiential marketing in action.

So, without further ado, here are the videos (in NO particular order!)… 

Experiential Video 1 – Live Augmented Reality-National Geographic

This campaign proved a great success with consumers at the UK shopping centre it was ran at. A brilliant example of a brand engaging with the public. 

 

Experiential Video 2 – Pepsi MAX & Jeff Gordon Present: “Test Drive”

Although this stunt only truly interacted with one individual (who appeared genuinely scared, but then if you’re going to scare someone, why NOT scare a used car salesman!), the actual reach of the stunt was amplified massively via social media, with over 36 million views on YouTube (at the time of writing).
