Composing Your Life

Agency: Proximity
Client: Audi

Audi wanted to update its database without simply asking customers to fill out a form. To heighten engagement, members of the database who had given their e-mail received a message on their birthday saying they could visit the website to see their personal information transformed into variables, with each one forming a note in a musical sequence that became a downloadable song.

In 2009, the recession drove marketers to e-mail because of its cost efficiency and targeting capabilities. This year, expect growth to continue, along with additional investment and sophistication.

E-mail will emerge from the digital marketing department corner and capture the attention of marketing executives and CMOs.

“Since e-mail has good ROI, it is finally getting the respect it deserves at higher levels,” says John Rizzi, president and CEO of e-Dialog.

E-mail will continue to integrate with other new media channels, including social media and mobile, experts say.

“The lines between traditional e-mail inboxes and social and mobile inboxes are beginning to blur as channels and devices converge,” says Sean O’Neal, chief revenue officer at Datran Media.

While the channel is expected to grow, it will still be challenged. E-mail growth can lead to inbox overload. As volumes grow, deliverability is as crucial as ever. In addition, marketers that do well will focus on giving customers control.

“I think as volumes go up, savvy marketers will have to focus on customer preferences to compete,” Rizzi adds.

60 years of human rights/Consumer single






Agency: OgilvyOne Worldwide GmbH, Frankfurt
Client: ProAsyl

Sixty years ago, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was drafted. As history shows, rights only persevere if everyone is prepared to stand up for them. The charity ProAsyl tasked OgilvyOne Worldwide GmbH, Frankfurt with reminding consumers that they should not take these rights for granted. The e-mail was designed in a way that certain portions appeared censored, reminding recipients of the danger of vanishing rights. The average click-through rate on proasyl.de rose by 28%.

The upside down e-mail/Consumer single

Black or white?/Consumer single

Agency: Wunderman, Germany
Client: Land Rover

There are only two ways to buy Range Rover’s sport luxury vehicle: in black or in white. Everything else about the Land Rover is identical. Agency Wunderman sent two e-mails to prospects. The subject lines formed the question “Black… or white?” Each e-mail contained an offer for the vehicle, thus mimicking the experience of shopping for the vehicles — choosing black or white on the outside, knowing what the interior holds.  Ninety-six percent of recipients read both e-mails. The total open rate of 43% doubled Land Rover’s standard.
