Launches With Data-Driven, Personalised Video Campaigns For The Prince's Trust and Alzheimer's Society

LOS ANGELES and LONDON, Oct. 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- AdGreetz today announced the opening of its UK office to further expand its footprint and bring its "smart", hyper-relevant, data-driven, video and display ads and messages to brands and agencies in Europe and the rest of the world.

The office, comprised of six executives with experience in the advertising/personalisation technology space, has already sold and launched two innovative campaigns ? one for The Prince's Trust and one for Alzheimer's Society.

In aid of The Prince's Trust, Palace to Palace is a cycle ride from Buckingham Palace to Windsor Castle, which took place on Sunday, October 7th. The youth charity helps vulnerable young people aged 11 to 30 get their lives on track, empowering them to get into jobs, education and training. To view a sample, click here.

Alzheimer's Society is the UK's leading dementia charity. They provide information and support, improve care, fund research, and create lasting change for people affected by dementia. The Memory Walk campaign promotes over 40 walking events held throughout the country during the months of September and October. To view a sample, click here.

In both campaigns, thousands of participants receive personalised video messages via email prior to the walk or cycle ride. The messages include their name, event location, amount pledged, money raised to date and names of recent donors. Recipients can then share their personalised video via Facebook, Twitter and  WhatsApp and send to friends and family directly, reminding them of their participation ? generating more attention for their fundraising efforts and the respective charity. Donor pledges, money raised and names of recent donors are updated in real-time throughout the videos ? a first of its kind! To date, over 100,000 videos have been viewed for these charitable causes.

"We're thrilled to be opening our first transatlantic office," said Eric Frankel, CEO and Founder of AdGreetz, "and already proud of the work coming from the team assembled to represent the company in the UK and beyond. Every weekend, hundreds of charitable groups around the world host walks, cycle rides, marathons and other events to generate monies for great and deserving causes. AdGreetz' personalised video campaigns are next-generation marketing tactics to communicate with participants, participants' friends and families and spread their messages in a compelling, entertaining and engaging manner ? activating recipients to donate and raise more money for these important initiatives."
