Samsung

S5 Launch

The challenge

 

When Samsung launched their new flagship smartphone, the GALAXY S5, we were asked to help get the word out. But how do you make yet another smartphone stand out in the clutter of smartphones already out there?

 

The approach

 

We realised that there are two things Samsung fans do – they will stand in insane queues to be the first to get their hands on the latest smartphone, and they love to try unlock their friends’ smartphone screens.  

 

 

The Samsung Be the First campaign asked fans to answer daily questions about the GALAXY S5’s features, ultimately unlocking a phone screen and giving fans the chance to own the very first Samsung GALAXY S5 in South Africa, without ever standing in

a queue.​

 

The impact

 

The campaign generated 1 500 000 online impressions, nearly 500 000 microsite views, and was shared 36 000 times on Facebook, Twitter and Google+ in just nine days. More importantly, the GALAXY S5 sold 80 000 units in the first month of its release in South Africa.
