Peter Jørgensen, CMO at Varelotteriet commented, “The combination of leveraging our own data and the digital expertise provided by the strategy team at Ambition along with the amazing capabilities of Mapp Cloud, means that we have been able to gain a higher visibility than ever before on our consumer and dealer networks. By reaching this goal, Varelotteriet has turned insights into action, connecting with the right customer, at the right time, on the right channel with the right message – something we’ve never been able to achieve previously. The results speak for themselves, and we couldn’t have chosen a better partnership than Mapp and Ambition to help us on our journey.”

Michelle Ellicott-Taylor, UK Partner Director at Mapp commented, “It has been an absolute pleasure being a part of the journey with Ambition and Varelotteriet, starting from some initial email strategy two years ago, to seeing the advancement of the campaigns and resulting case study, award recognition and ongoing nominations. We are excited to be a part of the digital strategy that Varelotteriet is continuing to evolve and look forward to supporting the next exciting campaign in association with Ambition. We would like to extend our congratulations to the other finalists in Best Use of Marketing Automation category: McDonald’s with agency Armadillo, The Royal Mint, City University of London with agency Anything is Possible, and Formula 1 with agency Ogilvy UK.”

Matias Valentin, Contact & Automation Manager at Ambition commented, “It’s not an easy task to design and implement the perfect customer journey. This particular journey started with the use of AI to build display advertising audiences. Through a geo-targeted ad campaign and landing pages, the potential new customer was lead to the local retailer and all the digital touchpoints were connected after they made the purchase. It has been truly amazing to work with Mapp Cloud, an integrated platform that supports all the steps and touchpoints in this Journey, making our work as a partner so much easier.”
