  • Innovative… but not all innocent! | Writing, life and other animals
    the original sentence before writing their own and so on until the conclusion of the story The web version Innocent has come up with is much simpler and all the more ingenious for that They asked children s author Francesca Simon of Horrid Henry fame to write the first sentence of 26 consequences stories one for each letter of the alphabet Every day from the 19th of October to the 12th of November anyone between the ages of 4 and 18 can go to www innocentkids com and add a line to any or all of the 26 stories At 4pm a winning line is chosen for each letter and the story moves on with everyone s free to enter again The daily winner for each letter receives a set of Innocent alphabet fridge magnets and vouchers to buy innocent smoothies At the end of the competition the writer of the overall winning line wins a book containing all of the stories and a Horrid Henry goody bag The twins are hooked Every day after doing their homework they scan the entries and come up with new lines for a selection of stories They spend ages at it all the time on the heavily branded Innocent website It s a clever bit of marketing by Innocent tapping in to children s natural tendency to connect with stories and keeping them coming back to the site and engaging with the Innocent brand day after day As a marketing concept it s brilliant even if the online execution could perhaps have been better On one level it s a bit of fun with some cool prizes that exercises children s brains and nurtures their budding creativity that s the good part On a more cynical level I can t help thinking that this is a highly targeted marketing campaign designed to build brand awareness and encourage consumption of innocent s range of drinks by children and by association their parents who do the shopping I m always a bit wary of marketing that s targeted specifically at young children Kids don t have the same filters in place as adults when it comes to making sense of advertising in all its many guises They re much more inclined to believe what they see hear and read As adults we can look objectively at the message being peddled by marketers identify the motive behind it and process it in the relevant context Children on the other hand are much more accepting and therein lies the danger The Innocent campaign while not necessarily innocent does stay on the right side of the line in terms of responsible marketing for children Other brands may not Be Sociable Share Tweet Share this Click to share on Twitter Opens in new window Share on Facebook Opens in new window Click to share on Google Opens in new window Related Posted by Calvin at 18 40 Tagged with Children evening echo Marketing online marketing Parenting Writing 2 Responses
