Clarity’s Challenge:

Break through Black Friday

ABOUT

Cutting through the noise during the stretch from Black Friday to Cyber Monday is almost as challenging and stressful as actually shopping during that weekend. But, when Loquate challenged the Clarity London team to do just that, we didn’t flinch. Over the course of 2 months leading into Black Friday, Clarity and Loquate developed what would be known as the award-winning “Golden Quarter” campaign. Understanding that media outlets would be cranking out retail analysis articles fast and furious during this weekend, Clarity turned Loquate into *the* go-to resource for any media outlet looking for shopping data and expert analysis.

In addition to creating a series of stories based on PCA’s real-time ecommerce data, the PCA Predict team actually spent Black Friday at the Clarity London offices, which were converted into a non-stop News Room, serving up live data to hundreds of journalists as Black Friday and Cyber Monday evolved.

To say that the Golden Quarter campaign was a success would be an understatement. The fantastic results the team achieved were recognised at group-level and several customers got in touch to request our bespoke data reports, which has supported our sales and customer delivery teams in strengthening key relationships. Not only did we generate wall-to-wall media coverage in the most influential media outlets in the country, but we also saw a 29% increase in new business between October and January when compared to the year before.

Citrix

Company Goal: Generate more social media interaction and build relationships with targeted groups

Clarity’s Challenge: Create tailored social media campaigns, nailing Citrix’s tone of voice and persona

We started the social media campaigns, using Twitter polls and for one of the campaigns (self-recorded) videos from one of the Citrix spokespersons. We have launched tailored campaigns for which we have posted almost 50 polls and recorded 20 videos. The result was astonishing: we achieved exceptional interaction rates (average: 3.31% for Twitter and 1.64% for LinkedIn). For comparison: an interaction ratio between 0.33% and 1% is considered high for Twitter (research by Scrunch) and a study by Forrester showed that the average interaction rate of the top 50 brands worldwide is 0.054% on LinkedIn. In total we realized over 925,000 impressions and almost 50,000 interactions on Twitter and LinkedIn.

This Girl Can

Company Goal: Launched in 2015, #TGC has successfully persuaded nearly three million women to get more active – but their work isn’t done yet. Clarity partnered with #TGC’s initiative, This Girl Can Swim to help them understand the messaging and imagery to use in their paid campaigns to best lead to women attending women’s only sessions at across 40 pools in the UK.

Clarity’s Challenge: Creating an effective paid strategy focused on converting a highly regionalized and specific demographic audience.

Clarity’s approach was to construct  test approach to determine the most successful strategy and one that would inform campaigns. We ran 1-week test phases across creative, brand messaging, and targeting and leveraged the learnings from each test phase to underpin optimisation throughout the wider project.

Tempow

Company Goal: Build the Dolby Labs of Bluetooth

Clarity’s Challenge: Paint a hardware vision using only software

Led by one of the most energetic, engaging, and hardest hustling young startup CEO’s in the world, Vincent Nallathamby, a small team of engineers out of Paris embarked on a mission tech giants long ago abandoned: unlocking the true potential of the Bluetooth protocol.

Few people think about it when pairing their phones to earbuds or a home speaker system, but Bluetooth is an incredibly powerful piece of software that can be used for so much more than “connect device A to device B”. Back in 2016, Vincent and the team at Tempow took this misunderstood piece of tech under their wing and built the Tempow Audio Protocol (TAP) with the initial application of allowing one phone create a surround sound system with any number of speakers from any 3rd party brand.

This test case proved incredibly fruitful when they caught the eye of Motorola and became one of the showstopping features for the Moto X4, unveiled at IFA 2017.
