Our Challenge

Back in 2017 (before GDPR), the conversation around our personal data was gaining pace.

  • How do we educate individuals on their rights with regard to electronic direct marketing?
  • How do we remind data controllers of their responsibilities? (and compel them to take it seriously).
  • And tell people clearly what they can do to take back control of their data (and lighten their inbox’s)?

Our Solution

For most people this topic is dry – Gobi desert dry – but we’re also driven to distraction by spammy emails and unwanted texts. So we made it simple, told a story of easy actions and multiple benefits, with a bit of humour.

Friday created a 60 second animated video piece that captured attention, engaged and informed our audience, then gave them a link where they could get detailed, targeted information pieces. The messages were aimed at consumers but any business watching would be in no doubt about their responsibilities. And the types of penalties that they maybe subject to.

The video was crafted, from messaging to structure, style and tone to optimise the impact and budget. We promoted it online with multiple tactics and platforms, ultimately delivering outstanding results.
