Greystripe, Inc. in conjunction with Grail Research
Yahoo! oneSearch
The purpose of the campaign was threefold:
·          Increase awareness of the Yahoo! oneSearch mobile search portal
·          Increase intention to try the Yahoo! oneSearch product
·          Demonstrate the effectiveness of the Greystripe in-game mobile ad format
The Yahoo! oneSearch campaign was launched in the Greystripe AdWRAP network, featuring full-screen ads in mobile games, up to 240x240 in size.   The advertising leveraged Greystripe’s creative services, which specialize in designing ads for handsets. 
To measure the brand-lift and intention to try, Greystripe and Grail Research designed an innovative mobile survey with the ability to observe control and exposed groups simultaneously. A random selection of U.S. users of ad-supported games in the AdWRAP network were served two ads before game play and then invited to take the survey after game play. The survey was accessed directly from the phone through web pages designed for mobile phones. In the test group, one of the pre-game ads was a Yahoo! oneSearch advertisement.
The survey was designed by Greystripe and Grail Research, with analysis provided by Grail Research. Users were limited to one survey, and recent players of ad-supported mobile games )other than the game used for the test) were excluded to avoid tainted results from previous exposure to oneSearch ads. The survey comprised ten questions, using both unaided and aided recall. 143 respondents completed the survey.
The results of the campaign and mobile survey included:
·          Exposed respondents were significantly more inclined to try the product compared to the control respondents.  The test group showed a relative increase of 18% for those who will “definitely try” and a 10% increase for a combination of those who will “probably” or “definitely” try. 
·          The exposed group clearly remembered the ad, with a jump of 127% recall over the control group. For a well-known brand like Yahoo, which was also running oneSearch ads in other mobile ad networks, the specific recall of where they saw the ad is significant.
·          Among those who recalled seeing the Yahoo! oneSearch advertisement, the message takeaway and recall of individual ad elements were strong, clearly above the control group.
·          Participant self-reporting indicated they were 64% female, and 81% in the 18 to 34 age group.

“ helped ZAGAT create consistent naming across its digital product line. Most other ways of referencing mobile web sites are long and convoluted like 'Zagat mobile web site' or '' These were not viable options for a product name.”
 – Dan Entin, Senior Product Manager - Internet & Wireless, ZAGAT Survey


Initially started as a hobby in 1979, ZAGAT Survey is now the world's leading provider of consumer survey-based dining, travel and leisure information. From its inception, ZAGAT Survey has remained committed to delivering the best content available for helping consumers decide where to "Eat, Drink, Stay & Play."
This content is especially useful to consumers when they are on the go and relying on their mobile device for information.
To address this consumer need, ZAGAT decided to utilize the .mobi domain and launch a universally accessible, ad-supported mobile web site as a way to make its content available to as many mobile consumers as possible.

Solution allowed ZAGAT to differentiate between its existing "ZAGAT TO GO" mobile software and create a consistent naming across its digital product line.
Also, according to Dan Entin, ZAGAT Survey's Senior Product Manager - Internet & Wireless, other ways of referencing mobile web sites are long and convoluted. Options like "ZAGAT mobile web site" or "" fail to demonstrate "ease of use" for a customer.
Like all .mobi sites, is accessible to and optimized for any web-enabled mobile device. Additionally, with a premium membership to, a consumer can use their same account information to log into and access the premium ZAGAT ratings and reviews.
Results was launched with a PR campaign that was widely covered, including the front cover of USA Today's "Life" section. This was combined with a marketing campaign to the user base. ZAGAT also ran "welcome box" ad on the homepage along with ads throughout the rest of the site.
The response to has been extremely positive, and traffic to has far exceeded ZAGAT's expectations.

Campaign:  PR Newswire

Background: PR Newswire is one of the foremost providers of news release services worldwide, delivering news to mainstream and industry trade media and to its media-only Web site  withmore than 80,000 registered journalists worldwide since 1954. A technologically-progressive organization, PR Newswire was aware that the mobile Web presented a faster, efficient means for connecting with their users and looked to interactive agency iCrossing for strategic insight on how to leverage this new technology.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />


Idea: When PR Newswire first approached iCrossing to address its mobile needs, the agency was in the process of implementing a proprietary tool, SEO, which performs on-the-fly optimization of PR Newswire’s news release content for the Web. Extending the tool to perform code optimization for mobile browsers was a logical step and would offer PR Newswire the ability to deliver its content to users in real-time, regardless of location.


Goals: The objective was simple: to use the real-time optimization capabilities of SEO to create mobile-friendly versions of PR Newswire releases that could be viewed on the average handheld device, enabling PR Newswire news feed recipients to get the content they needed regardless of time, place or location. This would benefit all PR Newswire clients, but especially journalists and other media professionals who travel constantly because of their job responsibilities.


The result:  A device agnostic website that presents users with search engine optimized press releases around-the-clock, regardless of time, place or location.


iCrossing’s SEO service runs 24-hours a day, taking news feeds from PR Newswire and rendering them into freshly-search optimized content that appears on the wireline Web at www.  At the same time, it takes select feeds from PR Newswire’s US1 service and renders WAP 1.0 and WAP 2.0 versions that are viewable from the same unique URL and accessible across the major U.S. carriers.
