Campaign Website: Tullo Marshall Warren's campaign for UNILEVER/LYNX



Start and maintain an ongoing relationship with the target audience, using social media (with email and YouTube) to provide an ongoing hub for all tactical activities. Create a members-only area to reward the most loyal Lynx advocates.

Strategy and targeting

Our target was 15 to 25-year-old males, who we knew loved social media and sharing their views on the opposite sex. So we began on Facebook. We took the insights that they like to feel like more than passive observers in their digital world, and craved a feeling of belonging. The key word here was ‘social’ – everything was built around content they’d want to share. Because we didn’t use any advertising, social media was vital for generating interest and awareness, and getting them to the After Hours site, where excited young red-blooded males could discover what the Lynx girls got up to during their down-time.

‘Unofficial’ Lynx fan pages were migrated to the new Lynx Facebook page, and conversations were initiated about the mating game. We introduced eight casting videos for the After Hours babes, and invited the audience to vote for which should be the ‘Lynx Mynx’. When ‘After Hours’ went live, they could watch short films starring our eight lovelies. Finally, the Lynx Mynx was unveiled, with her own room where voters suggested things for her to do. We filmed her doing the funniest (or weirdest) within 24 hours of a suggestion, with new films going live the following week. We engendered strong involvement by showing the casting films, then letting the audience vote. ‘After Hours’ was a big deal for Lynx because it recognised the importance of social media in our audience’s world.


When we created the Lynx Lounge, we migrated 2,000 fans from unofficial Lynx fan pages to the new Facebook page. Those 2,000 fans became 20,000, all in place to receive further eCRM.


Even with no advertising, the results we achieved were in the thousands. 65,000 voted for the Lynx Mynx. With a strategy based on social media and word of mouth we grew 2,000 Facebook fans to 20,000 in just a few weeks, to over 100,000 fans today.
