Travel - Influencer Campaign

the what

One of our favourite campaigns has to be the
eBucks Travel Launch:


Business Objectives:

  • Launch eBucks Travel platform
  • Clearly articulate and create an understanding and buy-in for eBucks as a complementary payment solution to cash for FNB customers
  • Integrate messaging so that it resonates across a variety of audiences
  • Increase eBucks Travel platform usage

We conceptualised and developed an integrated campaign, driven by influencers. We gave x3 influencers R20 000 and R20 000 in eBucks and challenged them to book the most interesting itinerary on the new platform.  Then it was, GO GO GO, all while being accompanied by our camera crew. Followers voted on social for their favourite, for the chance of winning the itinerary. The entire challenge was supported and boosted through a Social Campaign, PR Launch and Internalisation Drive.

This case study illustrates our big thinking, full-service capability and unprecedented delivery for every touchpoint,  far exceeding our clients’ expectations, time and again.

Where creativity
meets purpose

I started JAW in 2010 as my main ‘before I’m 30’ goal. The vision was to create a design agency that wasn’t ‘cool.’ Where you don’t wear sunglasses indoors, hobnob with pretentious crowds or only take on CSI projects to win awards instead of actually making a difference! A place where slippers and a sense of humour are a must, happy hearts fill the space, and design is seen as a tool for change.
