The Only Bubbles Popping
In the midst of a shaky marketplace, we were tasked to “turn heads,” addressing the market’s concern about the “real estate bubble” in an aggressive and memorable way, while maintaining an upscale image.
To counter fears and negative news about the housing situation, DCA created a strategy to address these issues head-on and stake a strong positive position. Most unique campaign components were the “Bubble Insert” a magazine ad utilizing actual bubble wrap; the “Bubble Blast” a viral animated sales video that was distributed on the web and as a podcast; and a publicity stunt consisting of Segway riders dressed in a mix of business and social attire to emphasize the “Work/Play” aspects of the building, handing out postcards to drivers stuck in traffic.
- We achieved the best of worlds with this campaign. The “Bubble Insert” which ran in Ocean Drive, won a Gold ADDY, and a Silver District ADDY
- The campaign received press coverage in South Florida CEO, Miami Today and the Coral Gables Gazette, among others
- More importantly, there was a large increase in sales calls after the campaign launch and a 12% spike in sales over the week of Segway activity
