Interactive Internet ad for common productsA new research by Dynamic Logic MarketNorms confirms that interactive ads increase brand awareness to a greater extent than non-interactive ones. Consumers exposed to interactive ads felt more favourably towards the brand than when exposed to a non-interactive ad, and intent to purchase was significantly higher.
We found an excellent example of an interactive ad on the Internet for such a common product as tomato ketchup is. The ad banner entices visitors to grow up their own virtual tomato plant and win various prizes if they succeed.
The ad is in fact an online game that requires users to login regularly to take care of their virtual tomato plant.
The users have to:
-> water and fertilize their plant regularly. Too little or too much is bad.
-> show their affection playing music and writing nice words to the their tomato plant.
-> provide magic grow codes that can be found on Beauvais tomato ketchup bottles. (Of course the users have to buy the bottles to get the code).
-> harvest the big and nice tomatoes at right time to allow other tomatoes to grow up.
The winners are those who harvest most tomatoes per week, month and a whole promotion period. The participants can win a prize up to 700EUR.
The tomato game is an excellent simple tool how to increase awareness of the product in a funny natural way. The same concept can be applied to many other common products that can be found on the shells of supermarkets around the world.

Integrated solar roof tilesUntil recently generating electricity by solar energy meant covering a roof by ugly panels that were usually not seamlessly integrated into the roof surface.
USA based SRS Energy is one of the first companies that develops and manufactures solar roofing tiles designed to seamlessly integrate with traditional roofing products. The result is a stylish and simple solution for sustainable residential and commercial roofing that is undistinguishable from classical clay tiles.
The dark blue tiles, manufactured by SRS Energy, are jointly branded and distributed by US Tile and specifically designed to be compatible with the clay roof tiles manufactured by US Tile. Customers who purchase clay tiles will be given the option to upgrade a section of their roof to Solé Power Tiles. When installed, the system can offset a large proportion of a homeowner's energy costs—not to mention cleaning their carbon conscience. The system makes it easy for consumers to make a green choice, without having to settle for an unattractive product. There will be more tile styles and colours available making the product even more appealing to customers.
The tiles are made from a high-performance polymer that is lightweight, unbreakable and recyclable. Flexible solar technology by United Solar Ovonic is embedded inside each tile, allowing them to function independently of each other. The system performance is monitored remotely by SRS Energy and US Tile.
Sole Power Tile claims that they produce more energy that other building integrated photovoltaic solutions for the same system capacity. Higher rate of return, which in California ranges between 5-10 percent makes the monthly cost of an upgrade cheaper than monthly savings. The ROI calculations are based on pricing and eco incentives in California, US. So far more technical data like efficiency of electrical generation, real output in watt per tile for given light conditions are not available. This information would help to confirm ROI calculated for California as well as to estimate ROI for other countries as well.
It will be only matter of time when this kind of products will be available world wide allowing many small entrepreneurs and dealers be a part of the new business opportunity.
