Campaign objectives

LAN’s goal was to generate WOM (word-of-mouth) for its brand among Twitter followers, along with content that would give it visibility on YouTube.

Media Mix

LAN COMETAS was launched through outdoor ads in Simon Bolivar Park, in Bogota, on social media (Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube), and also included a BTL advertising element: kites for delivery, and kites with giant messages and lettering for sky greetings.
