Fans Try Their Hands at Being the King of Pop

The new video game, Michael Jackson: The Experience, invites players to test their moonwalking skills and other Michael dance moves. But to give shoppers an even more authentic experience, Ubisoft, the publishers of the game, bundled the first shipments of the Wii versions of The Experience with a replica of The King of Pop’s iconic sequined glove.

Working with the Michael Jackson estate and Bravado, the company that creates much of the other licensed merchandise for the artist, Ubisoft developed a product that would appeal to gamers and die-hard King of Pop fans alike.

“There are MJ gloves available online, but this we wanted to make custom so the only way to get it is to buy the game,” says Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Ubisoft. “If they don’t have a Wii, a Michael fan might buy this anyway – though we’d hope this might get them to also start playing the Wii.”

Key declined to say how many gloves were produced for the promotion, but the giveaway attracted plenty of buzz. The effort was aimed at stoking pre-sales and first-week sales of The Experience, which was released on November 23 for Wii, Nintendo DS and Sony PSP, in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. The game will be available for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in early 2011, so the promotion helps encourage buyers to grab up the (more expensive) Wii version rather than the competitors.

Besides generating buzz for the Wii game, Key adds that the glove is also just a lot of fun for players to use. “People could use it as a prize for winning the game – if you beat your friend you can wear the glove around the house or something,” says Key. “It’s not Michael’s $20,000 tour glove, so that’s OK to do.”

Chocolate-covered sugar cookies

It should be no surprise that a direct mail marketing company like Mostad & Christensen Inc. (M&C) runs some effective campaigns promoting its own products and services. The company, which sells mailing lists of accountants to clients looking to market to the CPA market, promotes its “CPA-Accountants Hot List” through targeted – and hard-to-resist – direct mail campaigns.

“We’ve done mailers with smoked salmon, with taffy, with Brownie Points brownies – we try to make them kind of fun mailers and they seem to work really well,” says Kim Seldal, in-house list manager for M&C. Last year, mason jars full of chocolate coins were sent to 50 previous clients, resulting in some $24,000 in orders.

The most recent effort was a shipment of chocolate-covered sugar cookies – imprinted with the CPA-Accountants Hot List brand, logo and contact information – and a can of key lime lemonade mix, which went to 37 brokers and end-users who had ordered in the past. The orders were meant primarily as a thank-you for the customers’ previous orders, but also included a 15% discount on orders placed before the end of July (the packages were shipped on June 7).

As with other promotions M&C has done, this effort played on the theme of the treat being mailed, with a note saying, “What could be more refreshing than lemonade and cookies in the summertime? How about a great offer on a great mailing list?” In addition to the treats, which came in a box with a branded ribbon, Seldal included her business card, a tip sheet on marketing to accountants and an order form.

The goodies cost only $12.25 per package, but shipping chocolate in the middle of the summer cost an additional $14.85 for second-day mail and the inclusion of ice packs. Seldal considers this a great return on investment, since of the 37 packages sent, M&C received seven e-mail responses and one order (as well as two new prospects), which more than paid for the promotional gifts.

M&C also sees this effort as having a longer-term impact on the company’s relationships with the recipients. “It’s the goodwill it puts out there,” says Seldal. “It keeps our name out there, and that gives it value.”
