Target Driven Sales Campaign

Client: The Telegraph

Brief and Objectives

The Telegraph wanted to bolster subscriptions to their online service around the time that Brexit was being debated. TED was to deliver a sales orientated pop up activation to raise awareness and sign up new users to the digital service. Our long term partner MKTG planned the media targeting commuter hotspots in major cities. Campaign needed to engage commuters in topical news conversations, such as Brexit, and land key messages of the service. Highly trained ambassadors would need to guide commuters through the Telegraph subscription service to the point of purchase, targeting specific key demographic.

Create an educational and informative experience which converts to sales
Gather feedback on the brand’s image from audiences

Ted Ambassadors to manage all payments and subscriptions on site


TED recruited a dedicated sales team across nationwide commuter hubs to upgrade a consumer experience and highlight the benefits of digital subscriptions over traditional paper media – ultimately to driving subscription sales. TED ambassadors were able to subscribe consumers onsite, using bespoke tech and provide a positive and informative brand conversation. TED also selected a range of incentives giveaways, such as branded water bottles, to help close sales and add value to the commuter journey.
