II. LAUNCHING A TV SHOW THROUGH BRAND INFLUENCERS (11:00-12:00)
A&E was preparing to launch their new show "Shipping Wars" and to drive buzz and anticipation leading up to the premier, they created a mobile tour that would drive engagement both offline and online, compelling viewers to watch the trailer, engage with the show's TUMBLR page, and become online advocates before the launch. The focus of the tour was a 10-day, cross-country trip of a 60-foot Gnome, but to amplify their reach and generate mass engagement, A+E embedded a group of highly powerful brand influencers into the program, including 1 who travelled with the gnome. Through a series of social media triggers, online and offline experiences and continued compelling commentary from the road, hundreds of thousands become transfixed with "the journey of the Gnome", and ultimately 3 million people tuned in to the premier of Shipping Wars.
