PLYMOUTH, Minn. — Veritas Marketing, a full-service, international business-to-business marketing agency, received the Gold Award for Interactive Media in the 2018 Hermes Creative Awards. Veritas Marketing’s April Fools marketing-automation campaign was recognized as outstanding work in the industry. The award competition received over 6,000 entries from the United States, Canada and throughout the world.
The interactive April Fools campaign uses the company’s marketing automation platform. Headlined “rival remarketing”, the initial email describes a new service provided by Veritas Marketing that gives companies the ability to run banner and native advertising on most competitor websites, video sharing websites and virtual-reality demos. It also includes an option to place ads that cover up competitor digital advertising throughout a large digital advertising network. A link to the rival ad manager is provided to place an order.
“This was a fun example of a marketing-automation campaign,” says Holly Jo Anderson, CEO of Veritas Marketing. “In addition to sending out an email, it was posted on our social media channels. It had a minor viral following. Many people forwarded it to associates and friends.”
