Social Media Award Winners

“This campaign was a tremendous success. We are highly appreciative of the outstanding results delivered by Sky Alphabet and the recognition from the BCAMA.”


David St Laurent, CEO of Western Media Group

The multi-network social campaign was highly successful in accomplishing the objective of telling the story of programmatic audio. Through more than eight hundred social media posts, Sky Alphabet deployed a massive array of content across Twitter while actively pursuing an audience development strategy to raise awareness of the campaign during its execution.

Campaign content also appeared on LinkedIn, Facebook, Medium, and Google Plus.

“This campaign was a challenge because few people had ever heard of programmatic audio. We worked to convey Western Media Group’s innovative thinking and the power of programmatic audio in a way that would add value to digital media buyers. This campaign was not about sending relentless sales messages. Instead we executed a disciplined and deliberate effort to educate our audience about a truly distinctive new opportunity.”


Steve Yanor, Managing Director, Sky Alphabet Social Media
