The Campaign

We created The Good Library Project an audio book donation program for the visually impaired that does not require money but just your good voice. The main platform is the 3-day voice audition where visually impaired judges pick the right and good voices to be heard to be the next voice donors. Once the audio book is made we upload it on our digital library app and donate digital contents to schools and organizations for the visually impaired.

Creative Execution

1. Launch (1 month): A promotional film launched to introduce each year's theme and drive traffic to the online hub site. The site is integrated to ARS phone service so users can record their voice and experience how voice donation works and apply for the audition. 2. Audition (4-days): Auditions are held for 3 days at an offline venue. We invited visually impaired community to be the judges to choose "good voices." There are 3-steps to become finalist. One - Read an audio script in front of the judges. Two - if you pass you go on to record another audio script. Three - after the audition the audio files are judged by the judges and voice actors to pick the finalist. 3. Recording & Donation (1 month): Once all finalist record the audio book. All audio files are distributed to schools for visually impaired. Smartphone app is also available.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service

The Good Library Project celebrated the sixth season in 2017, making us one of longest CSR campaigns by a brand. Every year, it addresses the low representation of visually impaired in the workforce and lack of information and audio books provided for blind children by opening The Good Voice Audition. It's an audition where visually impaired judges select finalist with suitable voice to record audio books for donation. Unlike others who focuses on financial/material amount of the donation, the essence of our campaign is putting tangible value to customer participation (act of donating voice) and donating it to good cause.

Our target audience was anyone who wants to volunteer including children and people with other disabilities. We created Korea's first "Voice Audition" a 3-day event where participants auditioned in front of visually impaired judges and voice actors to be chosen to read audio books. Due to the broad target, we communicated across multiple channels including TV, digital media, OOH, PR, SNS to drive traffic to the online hub site where people can apply for the audition. We also partnered with Korea Blind Union (for 6 years), Seoul Volunteer Group, Seoul Metropolitan Government and Korea Employment Information Service (under the Labor ministry) to use their platform to promote our campaign.
