Two fundraising campaigns win IPA Effectiveness Awards

first_imgDepaul UK: increasing homeless charity donors through iHobo mobile appAgency: PublicisFor a number of years Depaul UK has attempted to recruit younger donors to counteract its shrinking donor base. Previous press and radio campaigns yielded only modest results. In 2010 Depaul UK developed the iHobo iPhone application that designed to reach a younger audience. Despite no paid media coverage the app was downloaded 600,000 times, delivering 95 times more new donors than previous campaigns. It has added 1,021 young people to the Depaul UK database who have a potential combined lifetime donation value of as much as £1.5 million.Torsten Schuppe, Marketing Director, UK and Ireland, Google, commented: “This is a fascinating use of a mobile application with an amazing short-term effect. The lowest budget to ever enter the Awards, this paper is a brilliant example of how to deliver impressive results on small funds.”www.ipaeffectivenessawards.co.ukYou can follow the conversation about the awards on Twitter athttp://twitter.com/#!/search/%23IPAEff Marie Curie Cancer Care: recruiting cancer charity collectorsAgency: DLKW LoweMarie Curie devoted a small part of its 2010 advertising budget to ask people to collect money for their Great Daffodil Appeal, rather than simply give money. Celebrity supporters produced two radio adverts and online content, asking the public to sign up an hour of their time to collect. This resulted in 5,219 collectors being recruited, who then went on to generate an additional income of £634,583, delivering a payback of £2.45 for every £1 spent.Duncan MacCallum, Founder, MacC Comms, said: “The judges felt inspired by the fantastic new insight deployed in this paper turning givers into collectors. The return for Marie Curie was astounding, and even more impressive given the significant long-term value of the collectors for the charity. A deserved winner of the New Learning prize.”  79 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Two fundraising campaigns win IPA Effectiveness Awards Tagged with: Advertising Awards Marketing Campaigns by Marie Curie Cancer Care and Depaul UK won awards last night at the IPA Effectiveness Awards.The awards recognise marketing communications campaigns that have proved the commercial power of their ideas and demonstrated their marketing payback.
