  • 3. SITUATION Research In Motion, maker of the BlackBerry® smartphone, identified its Instant Messaging app, BlackBerry® MessengerTM (BBMTM), as a key contributor to the buying decision for BlackBerry smartphones. BBM is also a major reason why customers stay with BlackBerry during the device switch/upgrade phase (i.e., end of contract). Objective Our objective was to increase the visibility and desirability of BBM as a social media channel in order to retain and delight existing BlackBerry owners and acquire net new customers.© 2012 MCI.

  • 4. Solution Our approach was based on a deep understanding of the enthusiasm youth have for messaging services and music festivals. BBM users collect in large numbers for concerts coast-to-coast, especially in summer. Our program, "Make Friends with BlackBerry," was designed to provide a unique, intimate experience for BBM users—in their Make environment, right at their fingertips. Done in real time, in a way that demonstrated friends with us. product truth, we deployed engagement marketing strategies at concerts across the country and used digitally savvy, BlackBerry- toting Brand Ambassadors, along with interactive signage, to promote onsite offers. How? By connecting over BBM, of course. After scanning BBM bar codes on signage, or on the reps’ devices themselves, simple BBM conversations led to benefits such as sitting side-stage, meeting the band, cold water bottles, post-concert content, exclusive access and more.© 2012 MCI.

  • 5. Our strategy centred on using BlackBerry loyalists to conquest friends within their communities and personally endorse BBM. We were able to turn BBM users into heroes among their immediate friends by providing a series of exclusive, concert- enriching benefits. This digital and social approach focused on reaching BlackBerry owners (and potential owners) at the right time, using the right channel, and put the smart use of technology right What’cha at the heart of our social CRM strategy. Make Friends with BlackBerry was an imaginative what’cha mobile program that fuelled consideration and eased conversion to retail.
