360° campaigns are one of the most effective ways to reach the biggest possible audience. All available media are used to create interaction that makes sense and reaches all the target groups. What should be considered during the planning stage? And what do successful campaigns look like?
In the context of this two-day event organised by Eyes & Ears of Europe and ARTE in Strasbourg, experts present their projects and illustrate both the opportunities and risks of 360° communication.
The following questions will be discussed:
- 360° campaigns – How to get started? Strategies for 360° campaigns from the idea to implementation and production to the finished campaign
- When does promotion on all channels make sense?
- Reaching young target groups: How, if they aren't watching TV anymore?
- It's the idea that counts – Is the story the only key to a good 360° campaign?
- Using one's own brand image as framework – To what extent can innovative ideas thrive in it?
- Challenges for the design, between on-air, off-air, online and mobile?
- Audio design and composition – How important is sound for 360° promotion?

Brand position at the heart of holistic communication
Elmar Rugevics, Consultant at GMK Markenberatung, Cologne
The art of successful brand management is mastering the fine line between continuity and brand development. The brand positioning marks the starting point for subsequent action. At this Academy event, options for the comprehensive implementation of brand positioning will be presented in a variety of touchpoints and communication channels and illustrated with examples from consulting practice. Particular attention is given to the importance of brand-specific codes in the establishment of a consistent, clearly recognizable brand identity, as well as to the role of brand positioning as the "creative playing field" for communication development.
How to integrate all marketing channels?
Examples of NBCUniversal
Elmar Krick, Marketing & Creative Director of NBCUniversal International Networks, Munich
Elmar Krick, Marketing & Creative Director of NBCUniversal International Networks, presents two 360° campaigns from his recent work. Both are real life examples that were implemented earlier this year. They show how to integrate all marketing communication channels from classic to digital and social as well as PR and viral. Viral? Yes, viral! When you get more than one million video views with a media investment of less than 1000 €, that's what you call "viral"!
Multi-Platform Storytelling – more stories, more touchpoints, more buzz
Sabine Eckhardt, Managing Director SevenOne Media GmbH, Munich
Magic lives off the imagination – and this creates stories that inspire and enchant us and therefore attract our attention. The bottom line is, as always, the content. Then comes the packaging and the presentation. But in recent years, consumers have come to expect considerably more from storytellers. In today's flood of topics and information, it has become difficult to get through to individuals. Each of us is linked to the outside world via computer, smartphone, tablet or even wearables. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The key to breaching the medial overkill barrier is relevance. The messages that we send out to consumers have to interest the individual and bind him. You have to give them something that stands out from the mass of constant noise.
From the heart of your brand – Development of 360º campaigns based on a clear visual strategy
Marco-Paul de Jeu, Strategy Director Cape Rock, Amsterdam
In today's media clutter it is very difficult to stand out and to reach your audience. Creating a clear visual strategy enables you to develop campaigns and promotions that make you stand out, connect with your audience and grow your brand in the long term. The creation and production of coherent media identities is what we call visual strategy. To create a visual strategy, we bring clarity and emotion to a brand. We do this by creating a 'frame of mind' – the emotional state and visual framework through which the audience can connect with your brand across all touchpoints. It's the brand that covers all experiences that your audience gains in interaction with your product or service. Therefore, the brand essence should be at the centre of your campaign development.
This presentation explores the process of creating a clear visual strategy, the benefits and starting points it delivers for the development of remarkable and relevant campaigns.

Music and Soundeffects – the best possible soundtrack regarding 360º promotion: less audio is more impact
Maximilian Kock, Professor for Audio production in the course of Media Production and Media Technology, Amberg-Weiden
How effective can sound design be in a 360º campaign? What are the main aspects in its design and its production? An ongoing study with 200 test persons is investigating the impact of sound effects with or without music. What triggers an emotional reaction and suspense in the viewer and listener more intensely? Can an audio track be "overloaded" with sound? Prof. Maximilian Kock presents the initial results of this study, which may well change the use of audio design in advertising campaigns in the future.
|10.30||Reaching the young target groups:
How, if they don't watch TV anymore?|
Carlos Zamorano, Direktor Marketing & Communication RTL 2, Grünwald
The young target group encompassing 14-29 year-olds is harder to reach than ever with linear TV. Media content is available anywhere, anytime and competes with the traditional television event.
Nevertheless, Generations Y and Z can be inspired with innovative formats and a cross-media approach for the first as well as second screen. As a digital media company, RTL II reaches their target groups on all relevant platforms and devices: TV, online, mobile and social media. Moreover, RTL II reaches their target groups with licensed products and at live events. The lasting success of brands like "Berlin Tag & Nacht" or "RTL II News" especially in the young target groups are just two examples of many. RTL II shows how to cater to these target groups and how to produce TV programmes on all communication channels using an integrated brand strategy.
|12.00||Brand Perception in a Digital World
– Development and 360° control of a brand|
Sascha Weisshaupt, Head of Brand Strategy & Management Swisscom, Bern
Tim Alexander, Head of Marketing & Brand Communication
In an increasingly digital world, the major challenge for brands and marketers is to strategically position the brand, to design it and to let it be experienced, so that the desired perception in the target groups and stakeholders is achieved. This can only be accomplished through teamwork. Branding and marketing work hand-in-hand and in iterative, collaborative processes. Sascha Weisshaupt, Head of Brand Strategy & Management, and Tim Alexander, Head of Marketing and Brand Communication, show how this is done at Swisscom.
Case Studies – Current Examples of 360°-Campaigns
Yaroslava Antipina, Head of New Media Division, TV-channels Ukraine, Football1/2, NLO-TV, Indigo-TV, Kiev
In the Ukraine, TV and internet audiences overlap less than in other European countries. Internet advertising does not work as well as outdoor campaigns and advertising in other media. In this case, a 360° campaign helped to attract the internet audience to television.
