LONDON -- (Marketwire) -- 02/28/13 -- MKTG INC (OTCBB: MKTG) has been honoured as a global winner at Diageo's Marketing Brilliance Awards. MKTG INC, in partnership with Anomaly, Taylor PR, Carat, Colangelo and Landor Associates, won in the category of Best Integrated Campaign for the launch of Captain Morgan's 'Life, Love & Loot' campaign. Now in its fourth year, the Marketing Brilliance Awards celebrate the outstanding work created and executed by the marketing agencies Diageo works with across its global network.
This year's winning work was as diverse as it was exciting, from truly engaging responsible drinking campaigns to awe inspiring voyages across the oceans. Each of these 'gold standard' campaigns helped Diageo connect with consumers in increasingly innovative ways, providing stimulating content across a wide variety of media channels.
For the 'Live, Love & Loot' campaign, MKTG INC worked with several agency partners to create a multichannel campaign that told the story of the real Captain Henry Morgan. By focusing on the aspect of storytelling through an integrated 12-month program that spanned broadcast, interactive, social and gaming platforms and leveraging unique brand assets, this campaign successfully reinvented Captain Morgan for the drinker of today and increased momentum in brand perception which carried through to sales.
"The Captain had been a fixture in the on-premise for years but to truly integrate the campaign and maintain the integrity of the real Captain that was now being depicted in advertising we agreed that we had to make a bold move and remove him from our in-bar consumer activation," said Tom Tromba, SVP Client Services, East at MKTG INC. "The new storytelling approach has been well received across a broader range of accounts and consumers and we look forward to the continued success of the Life, Love & Loot campaign."
Andy Fennell, Chief Marketing Officer Diageo, commented, "Congratulations to all of our Marketing Brilliance Award winners. I want to thank the agency teams for pushing hard to deliver brilliant work. The quality of the winning submissions shows that we have raised the bar, both in terms of core creative ideas and in particular with standards of execution. I hope to see more and more of our campaigns, people and agencies shooting for a ten as we aim for faster growth."

Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...

Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
