How do you define innovation?
Most innovative PR/comms campaign you’ve seen in the last 12 months?
This year a campaign that really stood out to me was the Airbnb campaign that renewed its unusual nights saga last April (#NightAt). It had a twofold objective: to attract curiosity, which is a strong acquisition vehicle for new registered members on the website, and to generate buzz. It was a PR operation that was completely integrated – the strength of the concept generated large press coverage with, in addition, strong international influence.
What brands and/or agencies are most innovative when it comes to marketing/PR?
I find that fast food brands, and food brands in general, are very talented in this area. Creativity, humor, intelligence, audacity, an integrated management of the contact points with their consumers – no ingredient is missing in their communication recipes. Burger King is a perfect example in terms of social marketing, between buzz and hoax. The brand perfectly takes advantage of its social networks to generate engagement. In addition, it also implements a very unique display strategy for each restaurant opening, that celebrates one of the best tweets it receives: it’s a great way to feed their brand platform while valuing their community.
Describe a moment in your career that you would consider ‘innovative.’
The vitaminwater launch campaign in France in 2009 was, for me, completely symbolic of the evolution of PR towards a new, freer and more ambitious expression of the profession: Coca-Cola, who had bought the US brand vitaminwater for a high price to make it truly international, chose a communication strategy based on influence for its launch, which was completely contrary to the classic policy of massive media buy. It was a true turning point in the history of PR for brands and products.
