MOBO is a trailblazing global brand. They wanted a way to build their social base in the most organic way possible and were open to new and exciting ways to do it. Testify created the worlds first television award decided entirely via social media for the MOBO’s best newcomer category.
ED SHEERAN BATTLES JESSIE J IN (FRIENDLY) SOCIAL MEDIA WAR
Testify created a PR pack for each Best Newcomer nominee, making them aware of the award and explaining how to win. Each nominee could use all means at their disposal to drive their fanbase to vote. Fans and viewers could vote for their favorite artist in the two week run up to the live ceremony via an app which was embedded within the MOBO Facebook page. In a clever twist the voting race was entirely open, so each nominee could see how close they were to winning at any time. The environment of open competition led to artis ts rallying the troops on a daily basis to push organic fans through the voting system.
