Compare the meerkat: Part 2

I’ve been surprised by how many people are still viewing my thoughts on the Compare The Meerkat campaign by compare the market.com.

Launched just after Christmas the brave brand marketeers went for memorability using a fluffy persona (cadbury’s gorilla anyone?!) and went on to take the campaign through every medium possible. This is the part that interested me. Working for a full service digital agency I know how difficult it is to get absolute integration. Having multiple agencies and stakeholders all buying into one idea and being able to execute cross channel is a challenge for the marketing manager and ensuring all are on board but its something that VCCP managed to spearhead and achieve.

So its full offerings:

Spoof website

TV ads

PPC search

meerkat

Facebook

Twitter

 

Had to just update this to include the bloopers!
