LOOK WINS TWO 2016 NEPTUNE AWARDS
Miami, Florida – LOOK Marketing was honored by the Marine Marketers of America with two Neptune Awards for Best Video and Best Social Media of 2015 in the $50 billion marine industry. The Neptune Awards were presented to LOOK in front of the elite of the marine industry at the NMMA Industry Breakfast to begin the Miami International Boat Show. These are the second and third Neptune Awards won by LOOK marketing for their work with the Sea-Doo Watercraft brand.
LOOK, in collaboration with Fiction, brings ultra targeted creative to BRP that tells the Sea-Doo story in a manner that talks directly to the intended audience. This explains the science behind the NEXT LEVEL of performance watercraft riding fun.
We focused on key messages to build video assets that complimented the overall promotional effort. We looked at how we can produce videos that connect and drive launch and promotional efforts such as; press intro, dealer meeting, boat shows, special events, dealer showrooms, social channels, but most importantly to the online, video watching consumer.
The Science of Fun
From design, to testing, to production, to the on-water experience – this concept is motion graphics driven and tracks linearly from the concept phase through to the user experience – reading like a modern blueprint.
We focus on the people that bring their passion for product progression to the job everyday. We focus on the science behind their work and how the new technologies come to life for a better product experience.
The overlaying motion graphics evolve from the science to the user experience. There it highlights aspects of the fun being had in the same execution, with the same scientific look at the rider experience – like an objective study of the machine itself and the payoff, the fun.
This video series lays the foundation providing the PROOF of why to believe these new models are BETTER.
BEST SOCIAL MEDIA
This campaign was developed and executed in partnership with Cramer-Krasselt. We asked fans to, “Show Us How You #SPARKSOMEFUN” to win the Ultimate Sea-Doo Beach Party that would be filmed by YouTube star videographer Devin Super Tramp intended to create something to talk about and promote – a share-of-voice tool for the Sea-Doo SPARK and full line of Sea-Doo models leading into the selling season. The effort must have a “hook” element for media and consumers and should be integrated across multiple mediums to maximize limited budget.
The Spring Push campaign included a three tiered approach.
- Five week photo/video sweepstakes beginning on March 24th – Devin Supertramp asked fans to show how they would #SPARKSOMEFUN via uploading a photo or video to a dedicated aggregator app in hopes to become one of the top five finalists and win the grand prize. – Tier One Results – collected over 40K unique visitors and collected over 2500 leads.
- Five finalists were chosen and forwarded to the second level of the sweepstakes, to a five day fan vote to determine the winner. The winner received a new Sea-Doo SPARK and trailer, plus an all expense paid trip for he and two friends to be part of the filming of the Ultimate Sea-Doo Beach Party. – Tier Two Results – collected over 46K unique visitors
- LOOK produced an actual Ultimate Sea-Doo Beach Party with Devin Super Tramp video capturing the May day and launched June 15th to extend the effort, and reach his massive fan base as the next generation of boaters.
- Tier Three Results – Devin’s videos received over 700K views on YouTube with over 1600 shares, reach of 450K on Facebook, and in total generated content for over 100 posts over five months.
Among nearly 100 entires from the biggest brands and agencies in the marine industry, these two entries from Melbourne, Florida based LOOK Marketing were chosen as the best. #BESEEN
