Campaign Name: The dynamic blood appointment
To keep hospital blood stocks high, the service needed people to register and donate at their local clinic.
Out of home was identified as the most effective way to reach people who live or work close to permanent blood donor centres.
Recent data and digital innovations in OOH advertising enabled NHSBT to harness the real-time first party data required to drive urgency.
The combination of first-party data combined with the sheer volume of dynamic elements in the campaign was among the most complex ever.
Appointment data was collected and integrated into the campaign.
Showing recent bookings and donations normalised the process for people anxious about giving blood.
Revealing future appointment availability highlighted the need for new donors.
And featuring the walking distance to centres highlighted the ease of donating.
The creative featured real-life recipients of blood donations to motivate, inspire and create an emotional connection with potential donors.
With 3.5 million impressions awareness of the ease of, and need to, give blood was successfully raised.
The resulting 43% increase in registrations showed messages were successful.
It also proved that localised OOH advertising could drive new blood donor registrations.
