But....this is a topic that i feel really strongly about. Check out these photos
So this is a local bus shelter near my apartment that Virgin are sending a direct 'personal' message to the local Upper East Side residents (I also saw a similar massive billboard for the LWS when I was out on the weekend but I didn't have my camera).
How much more do you think it cost them to implement this localised marketing campaign? 10% 20% maybe?
How much higher do you think the response rates are? And even if they didn't get a direct call to action (eg I cant swap to virgin because I require data on my cell not just voice so I'm not a target candidate) did this type of localised advertising catch my attention hell yeh.
Who else reading this blog post that has run a localised campaign? email me to let me know what it was and your thoughts.
