TORONTO, May 18, 2016 /CNW/ - The Canadian Safe School Network wanted people to feel just how inescapable cyberbullying is for kids today. So they replaced those repetitive ads, the same ones that normally follow you everywhere online, with ads that bully you everywhere instead. That feeling of no escape is the same horrible feeling that bullied kids have online nowadays.
Roehl Sanchez, the ad agency's Chief Creative Officer, adds, "We took those relentless, inescapable retargeting ads, and turned them into something for good. Because of the small budget, we targeted bloggers, influencers and media to spread the word. Essentially, we used the mass programmatic ad banners and turned them into one-to-one marketing." They targeted key online influencers so they could feel cyberbullying firsthand, and encouraged influencers to share their experience online.
