The advertising campaign was held in Colombia from August 20-26, 2012.
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.
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.
Juan Camilo Villegas, head of Marketing for Ariadna Colombia, told Portada that there was no additional investment in media ads “because it was a viral “guerrilla”, plus “Bigital” (BTL + Digital) campaign. Total dollar investment in the campaign was $11,282. 12, according to data provided by Ariadna to Portada.
