The Approach

Our multi-phased “We Love That You Love That” campaign was designed to harness the passion of fans in order to expand social engagement, voting and ratings for E!’s People’s Choice Awards. The campaign was created to celebrate fans’ active role in the pop-culture they love, engaging them in the conversation early and getting them invested in the show’s outcome through socially driven CTAs.

The Work

"WHAT U LOVE" PROMO

An anthemic piece, leveraged across digital, social, and TV, that drove awareness, intent to vote, and set the overall tone of the campaign.

"YOU CAN CHOOSE" SOCIAL SERIES

This series of socially distributed content tapped into some of the most popular memes of the year, humorously reminding fans they were the ones determining the PCA’s winners while modernizing the 40-year-old awards franchise.

“DOUBLE VOTE TUESDAYS” CTA

The “Double Vote Tuesday” initiative drove urgency, fan evangelism, and FOMO across digital, social, and TV until the last week of voting.

The Results

The PCAs brought together a myriad of hyper-engaged fan communities, whose collective engagement helped make the PCA’s the biggest award show gain of the year across all of television and earned it 4.3 Million Total viewers, up 41% from the previous year. Social engagement and conversation around the show trended worldwide and it was the #1 most-social telecast of the night across all of TV. E!-produced digital and social content generated 51 million engagements, up 33% from previous year, and the exclusive “E! Stream” on Twitter delivered nearly 5 million live streams, making it the network’s biggest live digital video audience ever. In total, fans watched a whopping total of 336 million minutes of video content across linear, digital and social.
