During Serious request, an initiative of radio 3FM in order to collect money for a good cause by have people pay for song requests, Coca Cola was sponsor. However, Just giving money does not generate a lot of publicity or likability if you are one of many.
We had to make sure that Coca Cola would stand out and join the mission rather than just support it.
What did we do?
We had popular artist Dennis record a Christmas song with the Coca Cola theme woven in there. However, the chorus required a choir. And you could be in it. Simply call a phone number, do a practice run and record! This way you did not only contribute to the song but also to the cause, since the money it cost to make the call was your donation.
Furthermore you could request the song to be played, with your voice on it, on the radio and purchase it on iTunes.
It even went gold! And Coca cola doubled the amount.
How did it work?
