People, Partnerships, and Production: Three Routes To Creating Compelling Content

Creating content and creating good content that people want to share and evokes an emotional impact are two very different matters. Three major approaches have emerged through which brand marketers can develop compelling content. Whether it’s through partnerships with existing creative organizations, working with individual people – celebrities and customers alike – or by meeting the challenge head on and producing content in-house, the key is to create something that doesn’t feel like advertising, but is ‘advertainment,’ informative, or otherwise relevant to people’s lives and interests.

Galactic Thunder Pony

The battle for wireless customers is heading into the fantastical intergalactic realm. Via a new mobile interactive game, Galactic Thunder Pony, Boost Mobile encourages consumers to defeat the “evil mobile mega corps” and free intergalactic customers from their “devious contracts, throttled data and life-sucking fees.” As an extension of Boost’s Project Switch campaign this throwback 8-bit gamification effort was amplified across traditional OOH, Display, Snap Ads and non-traditional geo-fencing to create an immersive brand experience.
