Marketing Campaign Leverages Shazam Technology for Unprecedented Car Giveaway

TORRANCE, Calif. (February 1, 2012) – Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. has announced the debut of an integrated marketingshazam mobile app campaign that enables viewers to use the Shazam mobile app to enter for a chance to win one new 2012 Camry for themselves and one for a friend, during a live NBC television broadcast on Sunday, Feb. 5.

Beginning with the “Connections” commercial, currently available online at Toyota’s YouTube page, the campaign encourages people to enter the giveaway, and will allow the winner to start a new Camry Effect by giving him or her the ability to gift an actual Camry in addition to receiving one. The campaign is the first and biggest giveaway of its kind to utilize Shazam technology.

The “Connections” spot marks the first major outreach effort for the Camry Effect (, a social media initiative developed to unite the nearly seven million Camry owners in this country through an interactive, online experience. The Camry Effect provides past and present Camry owners a platform to share their stories, moments and memories from over the past 30 years, since the vehicle was first introduced in America.

“The Camry Effect is one of the most ambitious social media campaigns we’ve ever implemented,” said Dave Nordstrom, vice president of digital marketing at Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc.. “Partnering with Shazam allows us to increase awareness of this effort on the national stage and give one lucky winner the opportunity to positively affect a friend and start writing his or her own Camry story.”

The “Connections” spot is part of an innovative approach aimed at increasing viewer engagement with the Camry Effect A fully integrated experience across multiple platforms is created by connecting television, online, mobile and social media activities together. The campaign is supported by broadcast and digital media, as well as a robust web portal, mobile experience and targeted social media efforts.

“Connections” allows for daily sweepstakes entry by one of two methods: by viewing the spot online and using Shazam with the ad when prompted or by filling out an entry form online. The sweepstakes will culminate with a winner notified on the night of Feb. 5, and a public announcement soon following. Participants can enter for a chance to win once a day leading up to the debut of the broadcast commercial, as well as enter again by using Shazam or entering online when the commercial airs live on Sunday. Following the broadcast premiere, people can go online and “stretch the story,” or dig deeper, by expanding the commercial to view more Camry stories via a unique, interactive video timeline.

“Toyota is one of America’s most trusted brands and we are thrilled to work with them on this exciting campaign,” said Evan Krauss, Shazam’s executive vice president of advertising. “There are more than 130 million smartphones and tablets in the US and 86 percent of their owners use them while watching TV, which is why more and more Fortune 100 brands like Toyota see the importance of implementing a mobile strategy in their commercials. They choose Shazam because we make it easy for their millions of consumers to engage with their products.”

January 30, 2012 1 comment

As previously posted HERE, on our Facebook Fan Page, we have 3 wonderful local charities that are being voted on by our customers, staff, fans & friends. Become our fan at Toyota of Manhattan and pick a charity from our list of three. Humane Society of New York, Variety the Children’s Charity of New York or Nourishing NYC. We will donate $2,500 to the one with the most votes by February 28, 2012! Vote for your Favorite Charity

We thought it would be a good idea if you knew a little more about each organization. With this in mind we decided to do a weekly “Charity Profile” for the next 3 weeks so you can understand what each organization specifically does, why the organization feels they should win the contest and what they would do with the money, should the organization win. Our last but not least organization to be profiled is: Nourishing NYC

Organization: Nourishing NYCI am thankful for Turkey food girl

Phone: (646) 524-7627

Address: 419 Lafayette St. 2nd Floor New York, NY 10003

Nourishing NYC Logo

Company Overview:

Nourishing operates throughout the 5 boroughs, to provide “Nutrition For All.” Nourishing opened in 2008 to address poor nutrition and health while simultaneously addressing the issue of food scarcity and hunger issues afflicting the poverty-stricken East Harlem community of New York City.


Nourishing NYC’s mission is to alleviate the strong correlation between low-income status and poor dietary health. We provide nutritious meals and nutritional education without question and without criticism. Anyone is welcome regardless of age, sex, race, financial qualifications, or religious beliefs. We achieve our mission through a three-pronged approach to feed, educate and advocate for those in need throughout New York City.

Why should Nourishing NYC win Toyota of Manhattan’s “Vote for your Favorite Charity” contest:

Nourishing NYC should win Toyota of Manhattan’s “Vote for your Favorite Charity” contest because we need funding to be able to provide citizen’s with need throughout New York City with a quality free urban produce garden, Junior Chef Program as well as through our advocacy campaign. In addition to maintaining the programs we have that help thousands of New Yorkers each year we are always striving to expand our programs and community-based anti-hunger initiatives.

What would you do with the $2,500 should Nourishing NYC win Toyota of Manhattan’s “Vote for your Favorite Charity” contest:

$2,500 will help us in our Thanksgiving Giveback campaign for the 2012 season. With the winnings from the contest we will be able to purchase hundreds of turkeys to give to in-need and impoverished families throughout NYC. Last year we gave out 1,000 turkeys and fed 10,000 people this year we would like to be able to feed even more people. In addition to the turkeys, we also provide urban nutrition classes from our V.A.N (Vehicle Advocating Nutrition), we bring health and nutrition classes to the street. With the $2,500 we could expand this program into even more neighborhoods and help win the battle between high levels of obesity and diabetes in low-income neighborhoods, by providing Nutrition For All.
