  • And here it is broken down.

  • We started with the right packaging.

  • And we teased out the newest mobile device with unbranded advertising that got the whole country talking.

  • Our microsite counted down to the device’s official unboxing. We livestreamed the event from Toronto’s Eaton Centre using key technology influencers, Amber Mac and Marc Saltzman.

  • That same day, we flipped the switch on all the teaser ads.

  • We even partnered with Best Buy, and put Spark beside a few other mobile devices.

  • And when people actually bought Spark, it only made sense that they picked up their keys in a phone box, not on a keychain.

  • In five short months, Spark’s sales skyrocketed, with an increase of up to 1,342%. All because we found an unexpected way to connect with millennials, and showed them a reason to want a car.
