Case studies

Toyota & I Am Team GB

Toyota needed to land the ethos of the Nation’s Biggest Sport Day and lead up ‘training’ period is a fun, modern update on the nostalgic, much-loved notion of sports days. As well as raising excitement around the Olympics themselves.

The Challenge

The aim was to:

  • GET families 35+ & the wider public

  • WHO were suffering from lock down fatigue, are missing people, feeling bored, lethargic, unfit, frustrated and need something to look forward to

  • TO get active and sign up to the activity Team GB and Toyota will be running in the summer

  • BY showing the benefits & fun getting active can bring, in an engaging and real way

 

This simple yet effective Autoventure radio campaign created full funnel impact, meeting these objectives:

  • Raise awareness of IATGB & the Festival of Sport & events
  • Shift perceptions of Toyota as a mobility company
  • Drive action in the form of signups at iatgb.com

The idea

Bauer assembled our own team of talent to get involved and drive excitement for the Olympic Games, as well as raise awareness of IATGB and the Festival of Sport.

From here they could encourage audiences to head online to sign up a join in.

The idea was simple: deliver the message in the right moments, in the right way, by the right people
