Vodafone brings New Zealand into line, officially announces MEC as new media agency

After Vodafone made the decision to move its global media business to MEC earlier this year, it was expected that Vodafone New Zealand would eventually follow suit and, as reported last week in a story about the arrival of GroupM in this market, it was widely known that the handover had already begun.

Hercules mobile ad fights against fat fingers

As a study by Trademob in late 2012 showed, around 40 percent of mobile ad clicks are either fraudulent or accidental, with more than half of them a result of 'fat-finger syndrome'. That's obviously bad for conversions and one major reason why advertisers pay less for mobile impressions (Google added another click into the mix to ensure users really wanted to visit a site).

It's what inside that counts: Y&R and Curious raise the bar with HRV's new push—UPDATED

New Zealanders are well accustomed to seeing ads extolling the virtues of our country—and our character. And while the first piece of work for HRV by Y&R certainly shows its fair share of majestic landscapes and quintessentially Kiwi scenarios, there's a darker, more honest side to the new campaign that references the fact the quality of our housing stock leaves a lot to be desired and aims "to reinvent the New Zealand home invironment".
