Seattle, WA (PRWEB) April 1, 2011
Meteor Solutions, provider of the leading social audience marketing suite, today announced it has been named a silver winner in the Advertising Research Foundation’s (ARF) 2011 David Ogilvy Awards. Meteor was recognized in the consumer electronics category for its work as the research partner on the “Posted” social media campaign from MTV and AT&T.
- The “Posted” digital campaign, a collaboration of MTV Networks Digital, BBDO, MEC and AT&T, ran in the Fall and Winter of 2010, and was aimed at music lovers of all ages. Appearing on MTV.com, VH1.com, CMT.com and each site's mobile properties, "Posted" featured exclusive content from top artists, such as Sara Bareilles, Adam Lambert, Paramore, Leann Rimes, All Time Low, Maroon 5, Jewel, We the Kings and more.
- The featured musicians delivered original content to their individual "Posted" sites on a daily basis in the form of social media updates, videos, news and photos, which they were able to submit via their AT&T Motorola BACKFLIP™ phones.
- Meteor Solutions worked with AT&T and MTV Networks to create a social sharing element that increased the performance of the campaign. Meteor’s powerful technology platform identified the most important influencers in the campaign, recognized and rewarded them with special incentives and measured the overall impact.
- The ARF David Ogilvy Award for Excellence in Advertising Research is an annual award to celebrate his spirited advocacy of research in making good advertising better, recognizing the role of consumer research in creating successful advertising.
“The ‘Posted’ campaign had all the elements that we have found create online sharing success – entertaining and engaging content, incentives to share, a built-in active fan base, and a way to monitor and analyze success in real-time,” said Ben Straley, CEO of Meteor Solutions. “By engaging Meteor Solutions, these leading brands not only made activating sharing and generating word of mouth predictable, repeatable, and scalable, they were able to be more strategic about how they used social media to expand the reach and impact of their campaign.”
