SANTA MONICA, Calif., Feb. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Sabio Mobile won the prestigious 2017 Reed Award for Best Use of Technology to Get Out The Vote. The winning GOTV campaign focused on Southern California's Latino voters.
Held this year at the Aria Resort in Las Vegas on February 18-19, the Reed Awards is an annual award show that recognizes the best U.S. and International political campaign ads. With entries representing local, state, and national campaigns from the United States, Europe, Australia, and Latin America, it was an impressive win for Sabio Mobile. "We're really proud of the win and our entire team," said Joe Camacho, Sabio Mobile's CMO, "but even prouder of the collaborative effort between Sabio and our client, Grassroots Lab."
Tasked by the Latino Victory Fund to strategize on how to persuade newly registered Latino voters to get out and vote during the Presidential Election, Grassroots Lab reached out to Sabio Mobile for help. "Our research revealed that many of the newly registered voters were younger and potential first time Latino voters, and that the best way to reach them was on their smartphone. So we reached out to Sabio Mobile and together, we developed a unique message that resonated with voters and was a huge success," said Mike Madrid, Co-Founder of Grassroots Lab.
Sabio Mobile's winning entry used a rich media "shake" ad that pictured a wall with an image of Donald Trump and the caption, "There are people building walls to hold our community back," and prompted users to shake their phones to "break down barriers with us." When their phone is shaken, the wall falls down and reveals the Latino Victory Fund's landing page, encouraging people to get out and vote for their endorsed Latino candidates. Click here to see ad.
