Promote sign-ups and chat for the epic 10,000 mile Mongol Rally 2012. Drive bloggers to talk about the Mongol Rally, when they otherwise may not have had an obvious interest.
We wanted to approach bloggers directly and show them that we paid attention to what they were writing, and how the Mongol Rally was relevant to their interests.
What we did
We created a short trailer to promote the rally, and recorded personalised intros to send to key influencers. The intros were centred around recent news stories and articles.
The pay off
The generic trailer received over 85,000 views, and was featured on the front page in YouTube’s ʻPopular Videos Around The Webʼ section. It received more than 1,300 facebook shares and 160 tweets. The personalised intros resulted in the video being re-posted on sites such as Jalopnik, Jezebel, Trend Hunters and From Dusk 2 Dawn.
