In the perpetual struggle to drive more revenue and acquire new customers, campaign costs can rapidly escalate, adversely impacting ROI. That’s where the importance of reducing build and deployment costs comes in, while still delivering visually stunning interactive marketing campaigns.

Wayin were approached by a global media group to do just this. Cutting back the bucks shelled out to agencies for the same old campaign after campaign, and removing the need for expensive and timely ideation and build cycles every time they needed to connect with their audience. All-the-while, still hitting their data acquisition and ad revenue goals. Challenge accepted.

For a 2016 campaign, the global media group created a microsite to ramp up the excitement ahead of a major sporting event. The microsite boasted blogs, competitions and images, in a simple and user-friendly format. Delivering on the brief and hitting it’s data acquisition objectives.

But here’s the rub, the campaign took over 3 weeks to design, build and deploy, involving various stakeholders, with a four figure cost per day. Requiring the help of various back-end developers to get the campaign live, and once it had run its course, it was consigned to the dustbin like a takeaway coffee cup.
