Frederick's of Hollywood is leading the charge for a number of fashion brands seeking vehicles to help them forge more engaging relationships with their consumers
SAN DIEGO (PRWEB) August 1, 2007
"For the first time a consumer's piece will be showcased on the same runway as creations by A-list celebrities because the Brickfish platform allows us to tap into talent in an incredibly engaging way," said Yolanda Dunbar, senior vice president of brand and marketing for Frederick's of Hollywood. "This campaign offers value on many levels, from integrating our consumers into the judging process to sharing our brand with a highly targeted Web audience. We are confident that using the Brickfish platform will help us forge a more intimate relationship with our consumers in addition to adding a unique element to our revered charity event."
According to Dunbar, Frederick's of Hollywood chose to partner with Brickfish to drive deeper brand interaction through User Generated Content (UGC). The Brickfish platform enables campaign participants to submit corset designs, review and vote for their favorite, and to share the concepts through email, Instant Messaging and hundreds of Internet sites, enabling multiple points of contact. The Brickfish approach drives true consumer-to-consumer viral behavior resulting in more consumers spending time with and talking about the brand. And because recommendations from peers typically carry more weight than many forms of advertising, the ability for viewers to easily share the entrant's designs converts the campaign into a powerful viral machine.
"Frederick's of Hollywood is leading the charge for a number of fashion brands seeking vehicles to help them forge more engaging relationships with their consumers," said Shahi Ghanem, CEO of Brickfish. "Our UGC campaigns are a perfect compliment to advertising and marketing campaigns, and using this campaign to highlight promotional efforts for their annual charity event helps the consumer feel connected and involved with the company on a whole new level."
The "From Your Design to Hollywood & Vine" contest ends September 14. For more information visit http://www.Brickfish.com.
