Kiwibank’s I AM HOPE – Insights into the Perfectly Executed CSR Campaign

Posted by Zavy on Mar 6, 2019 3:52:36 PM

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a key part of today’s corporate world, where businesses are encouraged to be aware of, and responsible for, the impact that they have on the wider community.

In our ROI study we found that over three quarters of revenue uplift is driven by shares and positive comments, with shares specifically having the highest correlation to ROI. Finding the perfect marketing campaign that marries these two, often opposing, ideas can seem like an insurmountable challenge. However, with a brilliant idea and a well-executed strategy, it can be achieved.

Gillette's latest ad: Political or Genius?

Posted by Zavy on Jan 25, 2019 2:00:00 PM

“I’m never buying Gillette again.' How reminiscent of the backlash Nike received towards their Colin Kaepernick campaign 6 months ago.

Brands capitalising on social movements isn't a new thing; it's not enough these days for companies to stand idly by on the sidelines. Increasingly we are witnessing big brands align themselves with political causes. Nike is the perfect example of this through their powerfully driven Nike Dream Crazy ad with Colin Kaepernick, a former Football Quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers. While closer to home, we see ripples of this with New World and Countdown initiating the ban of plastic bags in their supermarkets nationwide. They usually have one thing in common, however - controversy.

A seismic shift in behaviour from social media

The proliferation and growth of social media has been phenomenal and has created a seismic shift in how people communicate and act. In New Zealand, Facebook alone has achieved 80% market penetration of individuals.

We now spend more time on social media than we do watching TV. We use it not only to stay in touch with people, but as a means of information, entertainment and, perhaps most importantly to business, as a way to find out about and research products to buy[1].

We're heading into the Silly Season!

Posted by Zavy on Nov 21, 2018 1:24:42 PM


Have you noticed spring is in the air? Well, some days it's more like summer and then a gust of wind blows up, snow falls in the South and makes us feel like winter is coming.
