In April, 12snap signed a contract to bring its expertise to “mobilize” the help a leading global airline’s cross-media communication of its involvement in German soccer. The airline wanted to leverage its partnership with the German Football (Soccer) Association (DFB) and record-holding champion club FC Bayern Munich (FCB) by placing increased emphasis on its mobile strategy, working with 12snap to bring fans comprehensive mobile entertainment packages including soccer-themed content and games, competitions, and video clips.
In July, 12snap signed a contract to extend its service agreement with an international chocolate company, providing a mobile marketing component for the client’s multi-channel marketing strategy, which involved a long-running DFB Team Sticker Campaign for two of its leading candy brands. Nokia, a world leader in mobile communications, is also involved as a campaign partner in the program, which delivered collectable pictures of the national soccer team via purchases of products, and included creation of a soccer Collector’s Album for mobile phones.
