Old Spice: A Powerful Example of an Effective YouTube Campaign
Posted by Pamela
We’ve all seen the Old Spice commercials featuring Isaiah Mustafa (and if you have been living under a rock and somehow managed to miss it, stop what you are doing and immediately watch them because you have been missing out!). What is amazing is how Old Spice was able to take a simple commercial and turn it into a viral online campaign that has increased their revenue and made Old Spice a household name again. They did this through the use of their own YouTube Channel where they posted a sequence of internet responses from the Old Spice guy to the hundreds of comments and parodies from customers and Old Spice guy fans. Check out this video from CNN Money and hear what Bob McDonald, CEO of Proctor and Gamble has to say about the success of their campaign and the importance of engaging customers through social media.
