Those of you who know me well would know why this new campaign has touched me - I confess I am addicted to my Blackberry – so much so that I actually have two! (strange but true).
Blackberry is doing a pretty major media blitz with their new campaign, "Ask Someone Why They Love Their Blackberry." http://www.blackberry.com/select/ask/
The campaign is a good demonstration of the use of storytelling to promote a product.
Other than the early adopters of technology, many people - especially, perhaps, women look for the full spectrum of practical and emotional reasons for such a purchase – so it will be interesting to see if the power of storytelling will generate increased sales for Blackberry.
Due to the broad range of stories told, these Blackberry "Ask" stories appeal to a wider variety of people, many of whom might not otherwise identify with what could seem like same-old, same-old technology.
Has anyone else seen any great campaigns lately? Please share them with us.
Until next time
