What binds us all together is the passion to develop and to coach fascinating brands. Brands that are economically successful and that evoke emotions in the minds of consumers – in other words, best brands. Innovative communication is the path to this goal. That means finding new ways to move the hearts of consumers: creatively, through media, technologically and by integrating all three. We live out this claim of turning brands into best brands every day at the "Haus der Kommunikation" (house of communication).
Serviceplan and Strellson create first online shop to accept likes as currency
The Strellson Like Shop" enabled online customers of the leading German men’s fashion brand to create a personalized look and purchase with likes
For brands navigating the digital age where the Bitcoin is becoming a credible currency, likes are the new social platform currency rapidly catching up with real money. Strellson and Serviceplan were ahead of the curve with ‚The Like Shop’, which enabled fashion lovers to purchase the Spring/ Summer 2017 collection with likes instead of money. By creating a personalised outfit via the online lookbook, and attracting likes on their facebook page, fans of the Strellson brand could purchase a complete outfit using likes. For example the price for a suit in the ‚Like Shop’ was 350 likes rather than 350 euro.
Within two weeks of the Like Shop launching it was a complete sellout, with men from around the world accumulating more than half a million likes. The eye-catching social media campaign created by Serviceplan captured the zeitgeist and appealed to digitally-savvy, fashion aware young consumers.
Thorsten Link, CEO Strellson, commented: “We enjoyed working with Serviceplan on The Strellson Like Shop, which was an innovative way of enabling our brand to reach a new generation of customers via social media, and an engaging way of people interacting digitally with our collection.
