Brand Awareness

With the goal of driving awareness of finding the perfect Vodafone gift, the Apester user-centric campaign showed increases in overall brand awareness measures, outperforming UK forced exposure norms. Improving salience like this is key to driving brand consideration at point of purchase.

Customer Profiling

The campaign performed especially well amongst female audiences and those who are looking to spend 50-250 GBP, with both functional and emotional brand attributes seeing a significant increase across the board. This was largely due to the conversational tone of the ad and its focus on emotional relationships.

Brand Perceptions

Perception increases were likely linked to the interactive nature of the creative. The ease of the interactive, multiple- choice quiz was also noted as ‘a good way of narrowing down options that may have been a little overwhelming’, highlighting how this possibly helped the overall brand perception of simplicity.

Message Association

Messaging for ‘perfect present’ ad was largely conveyed implicitly through the focus on providing Christmas gifts tailored to different individuals such as friends or family members. There was an 8X increase in message associate in “perfect present”.
