Tombola Keep Making Bingo Player Based Adverts
The news that Tombola Bingo was in the hunt for a new marketing company came as a surprise to many because of the success that the company had obtained with their previous campaigns. Everyone knew the fact that the Tombola Bingo adverts featured genuine Tombola Bingo players, which really helped the fun of the site to come through. Many people look for the social aspect of an online bingo site and the fact that these adverts focused on the players as opposed to the games was a great twist on the classic. However, there is always a time for a change when it comes to marketing and promotion with Tombola deciding to ring the changes. However, they haven’t run the changes that much because even though it is a new company pulling the adverts together, it is still the same style of advert that will be promoting the company.
Bingo brings people together
Chris McGill, an EDF Energy employee was thrilled to be given the chance to star in the adverts. He told a local newspaper, “It’s all a bit surreal to think my face will be appearing on TV screens up and down the country. It’s so exciting to have been a part of it. The filming was amazing and it was so much fun to do. I’m not actually sure I’ll be able to watch the TV ads though, but my friends and family have all insisted we gather round the TV together. It all feels a bit surreal to think my face will be on TV.”
Chris isn’t the only one to be delighted about a starring role on TV with single mum Joanne Drysdale also getting her shot of fame in the adverts. She spoke after the shooting of the advert, saying; ““My 13-year-old boy is probably more excited than I am. He told me he’s really proud. I’ve never really done anything like this, but am always game for a laugh.”
The bingo playing group got to take part in a large number of events and activities that were filmed to be chopped down into the advert. Some of the activities include cake decorating, karaoke, dancing, beach games and touring around on an open top bus. As you’ll see, none of these activities have anything to do with bingo but they show bingo players having fun, which is probably something that is very important when promoting an online bingo site.
