SVnetwork has delivered campaigns for the world's biggest brands including Visa, Microsoft, Apple, Sony, Disney, Lionsgate, Best Buy, Coca Cola, Kraft, Nestle, and Procter & Gamble.  This is the second engagement initiative that SVnetwork has run for Toyota this year, with the previous campaign for Toyota Sienna garnering one of the highest average time-spent–per-user rates to date.  SVnetwork's 100th engagement featuring Toyota Camry and Corolla began running on September 1, 2010.

"We are thrilled to partner with Toyota on this campaign," said Jay Samit, CEO of SVnetwork.  "Based on our proven track record, we are confident that we will generate increased consumer engagement and deliver a lift in overall brand perception."

The engagement for Toyota allows users to view short stories, or Auto-Biographies, detailing real owners' experiences with their Toyota Camry or Corolla.  From a "Camry Tree" chronicling one family's 19-year history of Toyota Camry ownership, to a young business owner's story of saving up to buy her own Toyota Corolla, users watch the videos and are asked to respond to the question, "Which car do you drive?"  Users who choose the Toyota Camry or Corolla are given a set of questions about their own Toyota Auto-Biography followed by an opportunity to click through to the Toyota Facebook page to share their stories with the community. Users who do not already drive a Toyota Camry or a Corolla can choose from three different Auto-Biography videos and vote for their favorites before clicking through to the Toyota Facebook page.
