Lyst wanted a campaign that would engage real sneakerheads who could provide unique insights into the international sneaker market. The main objectives of this campaign was to build credibility, authority and visibility in this fast-moving area of the fashion industry.
A highly complex platform that enabled fashion search engine Lyst to recruit experts for its Sneaker Intelligence Unit – a community of sneakerheads to provide unique insights into the sneaker market. By creating a 16-question interactive test instead of a traditional job listing, 72Point helped Lyst to attract 24,000 website visitors in just one day.
The campaign’s innovation and creativity secured 125 pieces of media coverage across 15 countries, generated 80 follow links and 1.93K social shares, exceeding all KPIs.
“Our main aim from this digital campaign was to find the best talent within the sneaker community, to join our Sneaker Intelligence Unit. We wanted to create an innovative and engaging piece of content that challenged the very best in the sneaker world.”
