Thomas Cook’s Club 18-30 is what summer should be all about: Best mates together, no responsibilities, sunshine, great tunes and great parties.
THAT’S the ultimate holiday experience.
We were tasked to deliver an end-to-end Youth Marketing solution for the Club 18-30 brand, making sure that the right message was delivered at the right time, to the right audience. And that’s exactly what we did.
By running a holistic sentiment analysis on social media we found that people associated their summer holidays with legendary moments and legendary experiences.
These findings are what led us to #LegendaryHolidays - a campaign that heroes the moments and experiences friends share on the unforgettable club 18-30 holidays
Starting with a brand refresh, content and channel strategy we set out to build a yearlong youth marketing plan. It included social content production, influencer marketing and activation across media partners (as well as paid channels) around the concept of #LegendaryHolidays
Results: AN INTERNET TAKEOVER
Club 18-30 was officially repositioned as the leaders of youth holidays with the #LegendaryHolidays campaign. We rolled this out to all the destinations, 500 UK stores and an online campaign that reached the masses. From chatbots and influencers, to media partnerships and activation across multiple channels, we took over the Internet. Literally.
