Samsung & Universal Music + Springleap



Samsung and Universal Music launched their
music streaming app, The Kleek with poor user
adoption. After a year only 10,000 fans had joined
their network and user activity was minimal.
Springleap’s mission: engage and grow The Kleek
user base with a headphone design competition.

VIEW BRIEF PAGE


The designs are breathtaking. Getting the public &
fans, who are actually part of our target market to
design the earphones was a fantastic idea. We grew
from 10k to over 1m active users from the campaign!

No. of Entries

Fans from across the web and the Springleap
community submitted 144 approved headphone
designs. Samsung bought 3 to go into production.

Reach

Thanks to Springleap’s proprietary embedding
technology, the campaign ran simultaneously on 8
different blog and media partners. The campaign was
exposed multiple times to each of the 8 communities
who shared the campaign – expanding reach
significantly.

Fan Engagement

Creatives could submit from each of the partners,
whilst fans could vote and share directly in partners’
sites and pages. Through Springleap’s “Bridge”
technology, fans could cross-communicate with each
other without leaving their communities.
