Keys to success of Metro

The campaign “I beliebe in love was created in just three weeks, which is really short for an international campaign. Why did it get so good figures?

They thought a good prize, something that really move people to participate. Obviously the chances of Metro International are not the same as those of any company, but think of a good prize is important when making a contest.

They thought about their audience: If Justin Bieber is the prize, an international idol of teens, who also turns out to be the most followed person on social networks (he has 35 million followers on Twitter and 52 on Facebook), what better than launch the contest on Facebook to get the audience interested. The contest was inserted into the global Facebook page of Metro and was redirected to the local pages to achieve greater local impact. This idea of Metro campaign can be done in several ways with Cool Tabs, for example, inserting the same contest in different fan pages for the same price.

– A simple contest: What does it mean for “beliebers” upload a picture of where they would like to have a date with Justin? The photo could be the beach, London, a nice restaurant,… Probably everyone has a photo of their favorite place and probably many people choose their favorite place to take Justin on a date, so the contest was really very easy. Among the entrants, a jury had to choose between the 50 most voted and, to give you an idea, the winner had more than 9,000 votes and 5,000 likes.

Diffusion and tone appropriate to the audience: They included the campaign in the newspaper with an overwhelming success, but their promotional marketing focused on social media: They created ads that led to the contest and #tags to maximize their impact, both global and local Facebook pages were Bieber-branded, and pushed the news to Bieber fan pages, choosing the right tone to connect with the audience.
