“The ‘Make it Epic’ idea is a straight call to action to our key demographics. They want adventure. And they want to experience “the best” – to have a getaway that’s worth talking about,” said Rare Method Creative Director, Dave McKean. “We want them to know that they’ll find it all in the Canadian Rockies.”
The pinnacle of the campaign is a contest for a Rockies Epic Adventure for six. Participants build their teams by logging onto Facebook Connect from the contest page. They then assign friends and family to various personas like The Wingman, The Weatherperson, and The Princess.
“The talk value and pass on rate of this contest is exactly what is needed to break through the clutter and reach our target audience” said Wade Harper, Executive Director, The Americas, Travel Alberta.
The integrated campaign builds on previous success of SkiCanadianRockies.com, extending it to include event marketing, online video, online display, search, print, and the social web for the 2010 season. “In a “do more with less” kind of year, we think the contest will resonate with a passionate, snow seeking, fun loving audience. Travel should be nothing less than amazing, and people who take this trip - contest win or not - will have a truly epic vacation in one of the world’s iconic ski destinations.” said Geoff Plewes, Director of Client Marketing at Rare Method.
Contest entrants can build their epic winter team by visiting http://www.SkiCanadianRockies.com, starting November 19.
