  2. To use mobile media in an innovative way to inform the target audience about the four main perks that the account includes.
  3. To make at least 15 000* South African youths aware of the Absa Mega U Account, through digital channels between 1 July- 15 Aug 2016.

*This figure is based on at least achieving the global expansion rate of 0,76% for the 1,9 Million bought impressions.

CONCEPT & STRATEGY

Use mobile rich media to gamify the user’s brand experience and learning phase, to get the younger target audience engaging with the brand.

Create an interface that resembles an app so it is comfortable and familiar for young people to engage with. 

We then opted to serve majority of the ads (70%), in an app environment instead of on mobile web, to continue the familiarity.

EXECUTION

A rich media ad unit, utilizing cutting edge HTML5, that loads quickly in low bandwidth regions and features an innovative stack of 10 second videos. Each high- lighting a different perk of the account, which the user can swipe away on completion in order to watch the next video. 

Furthermore, programmatically using geo-location and historical data, we were able to accurately reach the right audience.
