Apple (and Macenstein) win Effie Award for “Get A Mac” Ad Campaign

Posted by Dr. Macenstein

Apple’s Get A Mac Ad campaign has won the Effie Award for “Most Successful Marketing Campaign of 2007“. The campaign has been credited for bringing about a 42 percent growth in market share for Apple, and we here at Macenstein couldn’t be more excited! So, on behalf of Apple and their ad agency TBWA, I would like to accept the award.

As most people know, I have been running a grassroots Get A Mac ad campaign since 2001 or so, having put the slogan on my car’s license plate many years ago.

Somehow my invitation to the awards got lost, so despite the ceremony being held just 20 minutes from Macenstein Labs (at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York), I was unable to attend. However I am very excited to be a part of the most successful ad campaign of the year, and just would like to send out our congratulations to Apple, TBWA, and to Us, (Macenstein).
