Today, Zip Television unveils its Honda® Crazy Sensible interactive ad campaign, which will be aired on Sky, Channel 4, Channel 5 and IDS channels. The objective of the campaign is to encourage consumers to participate in, and have fun with, Honda’s advertising. Viewers are urged to e-mail in their Crazy Sensible stories and see them appear in the advert. Zip TV has improved accountability via requesting important vehicle ownership and reintention information, a ‘smart email’ function and postcode-driven dealer locator; all providing powerful data capture tools.

Honda’s Marketing Communications Manager, Matthew Coombe, says: “Working with Zip Television enables potential Honda customers to interact with the brand for a much longer period of time than they would have with a linear ad campaign. As a result, they can have some fun with the interactive content, and importantly, the Honda brand!”

The campaign, uniquely developed by Zip TV, extends the Honda brand experience from 60 seconds to one that lasts for several minutes through interactive creative that engenders a sense of fun and desire.

John Dalziel, Head of Client Services for Zip Television, adds: “In the ‘send us your stories’ section consumers can see the Crazy Sensible stories that have been e-mailed in or send in their own tales. A great example is running 26 miles wearing a chicken suit, which sounds like a crazy idea, but when it’s running a marathon for a cancer charity then this becomes a sensible one.”

Dalziel goes on to say: “In the past, capturing extended automotive data in iTV has been slow and difficult, but Zip TV’s simple ownership and reintention questions, smart e-mail function and dealer locator changes that dramatically.”

The additional ownership and reintention questions enable Honda to find out whether a company purchase is public or private, when they are thinking of changing their car and what type of car they will replace it with. The smart e-mail function, which is unique to Zip TV, is a first for Honda and unique to automotive advertising, provides an increasingly user-focused way of collecting e-mail addresses by using a predictive fill function.

This has proven highly successful in previous Zip campaigns with upwards of 40% of those who pressed the red button using the ‘smart email’ function to complete their details. Finally, the dealer locator function uses the postcode data, which has just been captured, to pinpoint the address of the nearest Honda dealership and passes this information on to the viewer in the connection screen.

As a way of increasing brand interaction Zip TV has, for the first time, incorporated mobile content into its campaign making ring tones and wallpaper available to consumers. This is further evidence of how the company is looking to push the boundaries and explore more converged markets. It is believed that Zip TV’s latest interactive content and innovative data capture tools will have a positive long-term affect on advertisers and agencies, as they look for greater efficiency and measurability from their campaigns.
