"Working together with Kokku was pleasant, and we knew we would like to work with them again. As we have already done. Their accountability really impressed us."

Website highlighting the diversity of entrepreneurship

 

The campaign was implemented on the campaign website, social media and online event. The aim of the campaign was to reach the widest possible audience through multiple channels. As the starting point of the campaign was breaking stereotypes and updating the image of entrepreneurship to the present day, the website was also implemented with a modern touch and colorful look. The campaign page was playful with interactive elements, such as Can you do it? – questionnaire.

Visual identity of the campaign

 

We designed a memorable visual identity for the  I Started This – campaign that stands out from the crowd. The eye-catching colour scheme and the implementation of the front-page carousel in keeping with the magazine were a bold strategic choice. The campaign’s 47 partner companies were showcased on the site using pop-up elements.

Brand & visual guidelines

 

We defined the tone of voice for the communication of the campaign in all the channels used. The aim of the campaign was above all being relatable source of information. The brand attributes of the campaign were authenticity, diversity, curiosity and community. The tones of communication were described by the following adjectives: encouraging, open, inspiring and clear.

"The campaign’s visual design was on point. It delivered everything we had hoped for: it was inclusive, fresh and spoke well with the target audience. We loved it and so did many others according to the feedback we have received."

Custom-made illustrations and icons

 

The entrepreneurship data was turnedinto concise and easily digestible infographics for social media and the campaign page.

"The help we got from Kokku to the campaign marketing, was really valuable and we couldn’t have done it without Kokku to the extent that it was now carried out. Cooperation was smooth, flexible and helped us to map campaign success."

Digital Marketing: Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn and Google Ads Campaign

 

The active phase of the advertising campaign took place 14.9-2.10.2020. After that the campaign continued with after marketing phase 3.10-26.10.2020 focusing on brand awareness. The content of the campaign consisted of role model posts in social media, blog articles and event advertisements which were produced by Inklusiiv and advertised by Kokku.

The online event Updating Entrepreneurship to 2020 was at the heart of the campaign and event Advertising reached 50,000+ users interested in entrepreneurship on Facebook and 11,000+ on LinkedIn. Livestream’s global attendance was 300+.
