What best describes you?

Fairfax Media’s Christmas-themed ‘Conversations that Matter’ trade marketing promotion has achieved more than 7,000 entries – a great result for a campaign targeting advertisers in the holiday season.

Drawing on the publisher’s ‘Conversations that Matter’ corporate positioning, advertisers and media agencies received a 12-day Advent calendar that encouraged discussion around 12 of Fairfax Media’s leading brands.

Behind each of the 12 calendar doors was an interesting fact or statistic about one of the featured brands as well as a Lindt chocolate ball – and beneath that, the featured brand’s logo.

Advertisers and media agencies then received 12 branded EDMs between December 1st and 16th (one for each business day) highlighting a different Fairfax Media brand and including a short quiz question about the brand. Those who answered correctly went into the draw to win an ultimate prize – one per day over the promotion period (12 prizes in all).

Fairfax Media national trade marketing director Chelsea Wymer said: “Fairfax Media creates conversations that matter every minute of every day of the year. We wanted to extend that message through a client Christmas gift that was practical, imaginative and promoted our signature brands.

“Our Advent calendars were extremely well received, prompting more than 600 entries per day – which just goes to prove that intelligent, thought-provoking conversation can absolutely cut through silly season distractions.

Does Your Christmas Marketing Suck?

Remember the old Palmolive soap ad that asked, "Don't wait to be told"? This is sort of similar, albeit sans any suds.
