BRAND & CHARITY CASE STUDIES

Hundreds of brands have tapped into SVnetwork’s community of motivated users on SocialVibe, Causes, and other partner sites to amplify their marketing campaigns for social good. Here are just a few examples from brands that have used SocialVibe to make a difference:

GE’S Ecomagination Photo Project: Working in partnership with BBDO, SocialVibe and SpeedShape, GE launched an engagement for their Tag Your Green campaign that enabled people to submit photos of wind, light or water on Flickr in order to raise money for charities that use wind, water, or light to help make a difference. Practical Action (wind), charity:water (water), and the d.light Lighting Oecusse Project (light) will directly benefit from the photos uploaded in the project.

“GE is always looking for new and innovative ways to engage consumers at scale. Working with SVnetwork has exceeded our expectations,” said Judy Hu, Global Executive Director for Advertising and Branding for GE. “Their approach to delivering advertising is incredibly effective for us, and we look forward to continuing to work with them as a valued partner.”

L’Oreal’s Color of Hope Campaign: L'Oreal’s Color of Hope product line is aligned with the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund to find a cure for ovarian cancer. SocialVibe’s engagement for the campaign featured an informative video with Q&A asking users to share who the most important woman in their life is. SocialVibe’s engagement allowed users to share the campaign messaging with their friends on Facebook to drive awareness for the cause.

“SocialVibe exceeded expectations getting users to both share and engage with the L’Oreal Color of Hope messaging around Ovarian Cancer Awareness,” said Kristine Munsen, Media Director, Universal McCann Group. “SocialVibe’s innovative use of social advocacy was the perfect place for L’Oreal to promote its partnership with the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund and surpassed our expectations for user activity and engagement.”

Nestle Coffee Mate’s Campaign For Dress For Success: Nestle wanted to generate positive brand affinity and awareness by spurring consumer-generated conversations supporting their charity partner Dress for Success, a non-profit that provides interview suits, confidence boosts, and career development to low-income women around the world. The engagement allowed users to write notes of encouragement to the women of Dress for Success, and Coffee-Mate promised to donate $2.00 to the charity for every note sent.

Marriott’s Campaign For The American Red Cross: Marriott TownePlace Suites came to SocialVibe to create an engagement for their Make a Bed Program benefitting the American Red Cross Disaster Relief. The engagement allowed users to make a virtual bed to generate a $2.00 donation to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief.
