Canadian Blood Services

It's difficult to ask someone to donate something, especially when you also have to ask him or her to visit a clinic, fill out forms, get pricked with needle, and then spend 15 minutes being drained of fluids. For Marketing Chef Mark, it was a gratifying challenge, as chief writer for the "Blood. It's in you to give" campaign for three years.

This award-winning, multi-media direct-response campaign contributed to a 25% increase in blood donations over the period, and wins a silver CASSIES for effective advertising in the not-for-profit category.

Ocean Nutrition Canada (ONC)

Ocean Nutrition Canada is a nutri-pharmaceutical company that uses crushed lobster shells as a capsule ingredient for some of their vitamin supplements. To introduce its products to generic supplement producers, Mark and Bernard developed a DM campaign that involved sending two live lobsters to each of their 10 highly targeted prospects. Accompanying the lobsters was a water-proof sales piece that invited recipients to “Feel free to take our sales reps home for Thanksgiving Dinner.” Result: a 90 per cent response rate and $850,000 worth of new business.

Medieval Times

Toronto has hundreds of fascinating destinations to entice tourists and locals. How do you compete with such a rich smorgasbord of attractions? That was the marketing challenge faced by Medieval Times, whose dinner theatre was losing its lustre and its market share. That's when Marketing Chefs Mark and Bernard accepted the task to re-launch the show. Through integrated radio, newspaper and DRTV ads based on the theme Spectator Sport. As it was 1000 years ago, the long-running campaign reversed losses and became the most successful re-launch for the franchise.

Not only a marketing award winner, overall attendance gained 25% over the previous year.
