LOS ANGELES, Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- SVnetwork, the Web's largest performance brand advertising network and technology platform, has been recognized in MediaPost's 2010 OMMA Awards nominations for its work with Deep Focus on the social media engagement for Microsoft Bing on Zynga's Farmville. The campaign is a finalist in the Online Advertising Creativity category, which recognizes campaigns that demonstrate outstanding strategic and creative execution for a client or brand.
SVnetwork, which reaches over 80 million consumers every month, developed an interactive engagement that drove unprecedented results for Bing's fan following by offering a unique value exchange for Farmville players who interacted with the Bing brand. The wildly successful promotion delivered over 425,000 Facebook fans for Bing in just one day. Even more impressive was the ROI of the campaign, with 70% of the newly acquired fans visiting the search engine in the month following the engagement. The campaign was also recently recognized as one of Forbes' "Best-Ever Social Media Campaigns" of all time.
"Collaborating with Deep Focus delivered incredible social media results for Bing," said SVnetwork CEO Jay Samit. "Having the OMMA Awards recognize the power of interactive brand engagements to create impact validates the experience of our 80 million consumers."
By developing the Web's most cost-effective solution for advertisers to engage a targeted audience of connected consumers, SVnetwork provides scalable distribution for performance brand marketing in digital media. SVnetwork's unique brand advertising platform charges advertisers only when a consumer has engaged with their brand, as opposed to per impression. Across millions of engagements, SVnetwork is proven to deliver campaigns with 100 times higher click rates than banner or display advertising.
