Counting down with Sunweb
A Sunweb campaign that brings perspective to our customer
Introducing ‘Counting Down’
We all need something to look forward to in life, a perspective. In fact, a healthy sense of â€œanticipationâ€ can often help energize our lives, and even help us get through tough times. While living in the present is a very beneficial thing â€“ sometimes the present can feel a bit annoying, frustrating, tedious, or intolerable. Like these Covid-19 times, we are living in. Â When we find ourselves in those less-than-ideal present moments, having something to look forward to in the future can give us the motivation and persistence to keep moving forward even during those difficult times.
The longer the virus is here, the longer we are caring about our freedom. We can live with the temporary pause button. To hold the button, we are in the need of a perspective. We deserve a holiday. We need a holiday.
Everybody is waiting
Now that all over the world vaccination starts people are already a bit more positive. Customers might not be booking already but they start or are orientating. They are looking forward to again having those typical holiday moments they had to miss in 2020. People are counting down the days until that the lights are green (or destinations are yellow) to go on holiday.
2. Creative strategy
Starting the campaign with a call to action with a hard sales message will fall flat and might backfire, damaging the brand. We need to tap into the current sentiment of the customer. For now: having fun planning, looking forward and especiallyâ€¦counting down.
