  • 26. Examples
  • 27. American Red Cross •  The American Red ross encouraged donors to text HAITI to 90999 to give $10 to the Haiti Earthquake relief efforts. •  The campaign raised more than $32 million from 3 million unique donors, 95% of whom were first time donors. •  Takeaway: Mobile can be used as both a marketing tool and an operational tool which can streamline your processes. Taking advantage of both aspects increases your likelihood of success.
  • 28. Heineken •  In 2010, Heineken launched a mobile game to coincide with the Champion League soccer games. •  The game, which could only be accessed while the UEFA game was being broadcast, challenged players to predict what would happen next in the live game. •  Takeaway: people are usually multitasking while on their phones, if you embrace this fact instead of trying to fight it, you will drive higher engagement.
  • 29. True Blood •  Prior to launching the third season of HBO’s True Blood, the show ran a mobile ad campaign to drive buzz. •  While on sites that featured the ad, finger taps would appear bloody on the screen, followed by a stream of blood coming down the screen and a pop up banner ad for the show. •  Takeaway: Mobile banners can be hard to see, so break through the clutter with innovative and mobile-specific creative.
  • 30. The Westin •  The Westin launched geo-enabled ads on the Weather Channel. •  When in a chilly location, ads would appear that prompted the user to wipe off the virtual frost to reveal 8 warm weather Westin destinations. •  Takeaway: Take advantage of the fact that you can receive geographical information about your users on mobile. Geo-enabled ads perform 4-5X better than ads that don’t take geography into account.
  • 31. Brisk •  Brisk used popular photo sharing app, Instagram to run a promotion where users could submit photos through the app for the chance to have their photo on limited edition cans at 2011 SXSW. •  Takeaway: You don't have to spend millions to get into mobile. Sites and apps like Instagram, Foursquare and Gowalla are free and can be used to get your foot in the door of mobile marketing.
