Ignition One: Digital marketing Suite (Site Analytics Engine)

iButterfly: Originally developed by Dentsu Inc., Japan, Dentsu Digital was the first to bring this technology to the Indian market in 2013.


This mobile application works through a combination of three technologies: Augmented Reality, Motion Sensing and GPS  – by creating a virtual environment where marketers can push branded messages or promotional information to their target audience by transforming content into virtual butterflies that can be caught on mobile devices and stored through a swipe action. Once these butterflies are caught, they can be collected and redeemed or traded for exciting offers. These virtual butterflies can also be exchanged amongst friends and family. iButterfly is also integrated into social media via Facebook where consumers can keep track of new offers and information on various brands by signing up and following the iButterfly conversation.

Why we do it?

  • We wouldn’t look nice in suits and ties and would get disoriented if we were to come home where it’s still daylight.
  •  We can go a day without food but not the internet
  •  We love telling stories –we want the world to hear them.

How we evolve?

By listening intently:  to the need of the hour, to consumers, to brand sentiment, to experts, to trends and learning from all of it.

Social responsibility in social media

We don’t believe in cheap and quick, we believe in delivering honest solutions that help us retain and acquire more clients.  Our ideas are ground-breaking without breaking the rules of the Internet and our code of ethics.

Need of the hour

Sound Strategy: Whether it is traditional or digital advertising, without identifying the objective, understanding your brand and consumers and then chalking out a proper strategy, execution is fruitless. We are here to deliver solutions not just tactical ideas. This shift is needed in digital to deliver effective campaigns.

Storytelling: More than ever, a brand can no longer be an inanimate object, it needs to be a living, breathing thing, it needs to have a voice, evoke emotions by effective storytelling that has become the key to effective digital marketing.

We learned the hard way:

Without proper strategy, ideas are meaningless.

Did we just share that?

We time travel frequently to know how we will be faring in future. Watch out for year 2015 – Dentsu Digital will be bigger than ever!
