The answer was a 10 week global PR programme called World of Betters. A competition and series of events to find out what people would do with $1000 to make someone’s day better, giving 100 people the opportunity, through online voting, to make it happen. Using the power of the digital age and in partnership with 5 iconic musicians, we created a series of regional ‘betters’ events in which Western Union moved money into a local community for that communities benefit. To amplify this, we created a Livestream event around the ‘Betters’, activated local and regional PR media and the artists social media fanbases, both before and after, to create a powerful and wide reaching ACT that captured the imagination on both a local, regional and global level.
After 10 weeks and thousands of betters being uploaded we had 100 winning Betters, millions of hours of footage watched, nearly a billion media impressions and a program that had made a huge difference to the perception of the brand.
