Entered in Telecom


In Q3 2013, T-Mobile launched JUMP!, shaking up the wireless industry by allowing people to upgrade their phones when they want, not when they are told. Social listening was used at the beginning of the campaign to tap into consumer pain points around not being able to upgrade their phones, leading to creative storylines featured in the broadcast executions, with the branded hashtag #Hate2Wait To capitalize on the consumer truths and help create a movement, we asked people to share their #hate2wait stories via Facebook, Twitter, Vine and Instagram for a chance to win one of 730 new Samsung GS4 phones. Stories were aggregated into an interactive hub on T-mobile’s FB page The campaign was promoted via T-Mobile’s social channels. Paid digital media was leveraged during the submission portion of the program.
