We knew if Mom could just see the features of Windows 7 first hand, then love would quickly follow. So we focused on Photo Fuse and Photo Mail, which makes the editing and sharing of family photos simple.
The big idea was to take boring downtime for passengers waiting at airport gates across the country and turn it into a fun opportunity to get free holiday photos—with good ole’ St. Nick.
After the enthusiastic passengers enjoyed their moment with the jolly one, Windows elves provided a short demo featuring easy elements from Windows to edit and share their photos. And of course, a free print was given on the spot.
The results in year 1 were impressive: more than 300,000 photos were taken, delivering 91,692 consumer trials of Photo Fuse and Photo Mail. We even won the PROMO Award for "Best Campaign with a Holiday Theme". A "Happy Holidays" it was for all involved.
