The Sun: Page 3 — The Woman You’d Love Your Woman to Be Like

Last year, during July 2010 to be more specific, we analyzed Old Spice’s social media campaign – The Man You Could Smell Like – and it was a huge hit that attracted attention and praise, and left an ever lasting impression. Here’s one of the clips as a reminder:

I recently came across the following imitation of that campaign, designed for The Sun’s Page 3. The campaign is an exact copy of the Old Spice campaign with the only exception of having a woman  posing as the main attraction instead of the handsome hunk!

Augmented Reality Campaigns — Learn Social Media by Example

There is a new marketing landscape that is starting to form with internet ads and campaigns. According to data from the Pew Research center, 40% of internet users claim to have “never” clicked an ad on the web, and 77% of them totally ignore those ads. Given the reluctance of internet users to click on online ads, as well as their habitual ignorance of their mere existence, marketers have been trying to find out new ways and tricks to make their ads more appealing and engaging for internet users.

One of those exciting new technologies is augmented reality adverts that allow the audience to utilize elements from their environment and engage with the ads; adding an element of excitement and fun to marketing. There are several examples for ads that utilize augmented reality and they are all quite innovative in their own way.
