Tommy Hilfiger Finds e-Results with LEAP's e-Greetings

by: lfi in News

Tommy Hilfiger has hired LEAP to create interactive e-greetings that will be used for the promotion of Tommy's spring intimate collection. The Manhattan-based company has opted to use e-greetings again after the success of Beyonce Knowles True Star Fragrance Collection e-greeting that was released last year.

"We're excited that a prestigious national brand chose Louisville for their interactive services, especially one as notable as Tommy Hilfiger," said LEAP Creative Director, Alan Gilleo, "The impact interactive technology has on a national brand is colossal. Our project will have an extremely high level of exposure."

LEAP is designing and creating interactive e-greetings that will be included in Tommy's HTML Newsletter, website and other e-materials. The e-greeting will reach 600,000 email users. The functionality of the e-greeting allows end-users to mix and match Tommy's product, make purchases, as well as visit the main Tommy site. The end-users can also forward the e-greeting on to a friend. Tommy expects 500,000 people to return to their site after viewing the e-greeting.

"Tommy cares about their consumer base, so they try to stay in close touch with them. Interactive marketing, being a two-way medium, allows this to happen," said Gilleo, "By using the proper messaging and interactive tools, Tommy continues to build relationships with their customers and continues to be successful."

As an interactive agency, e-greetings are one of the many services LEAP offers clients. E-greetings are an efficient way of permissively communicating with customers in a timely and direct manner. Businesses may use the e-greetings to promote company products and/or inform customers of current company news. Also, customers may link back to the sending company's website. Other interactive services include: e-retailing, websites, e-promotions, rich media, permission email and search engine marketing.
