We offered local businesses a one-of-a-kind occasion to give them some visibility and present their savoir-faire to the consumers : the official music video of « my toy », the new track by Breakbot, the famous electro band from label Ed Banger (Justice, Laurent Garnier).We made the first music video entirely produced with the help of small businesses referenced on Yellow Pages. With an interactive version to enable the internet user to click and discover the forty small businesses that are behind every single detail of the music video. Through short videos in which Breakbot introduces the small businesses to the users in person. And that enables the user to book appointments with the professionnals.
Created as a digital experience, the launch of the official clip has been synchronized with the promotion of Breakbot’s new album, so that the interactive video was the avant-premie?re broadcast of the clip worldwide. We used own channels, both from Ed Banger’s & from the local professional to promote the experience, creating a sense of conversation with the audience. The making of the interactive video was pushed with media buy on youtube to ensure mainstream coverage 2 weeks after the launch.
Seen in the press, online and on TV The track My Toy has been performed on most of the biggest French talk shows and has been in the French top 5. The content linked to My Toy has been seen over 1,2M times on Youtube. 2,5M on Facebook and 4,6M on Twitter. 8,3M view total, the equivalent of a media campaign for a big company.
This case shows is about a shift from a classic media brand (PagesJaunes.fr was purely TV campaign oriented) to a human centered platform, meant to create experiences, conversation & relationships.
Brand tracker study shows that 67% of users of PagesJaunes.fr consider the service only from a functional view : accurate, trustworthy, efficient. We sum it up into a consumer quote : PagesJaunes is like a toothbrush : "we use it every day, but you never think of it". To challenge the main competitors : google, airbnb, Yelp we decided to : 1- get rid of the functionalities in communication. 2- focus on the people who develop small independant businesses. 3- be truly generous with them. 4- focus on young adults
