Harlequin, the leading publisher of romance novels, has produced a romance report for 20 years. This magazine was the basis for a North American media relations campaign. In early 2010, Harlequin expressed interest in getting a younger audience engaged with its brand. Harlequin announced it had submitted a patent application for the “Essential Romantic Kiss” to the United States Patent and Trademark Office, “Harlequin Office for the Preservation of the Kiss” was born. Visitors to PatentYourKiss.com could review the official patent application, use the Kiss Creation tool, enter their kiss to win a trip to Las Vegas, and share their kiss directly from the site to Twitter/Facebook. The site featured an extensive section where users could learn more about select Harlequin bestsellers and upcoming releases.
NATIONAL Public Relations targeted a younger demographic for this online interactive campaign in an attempt to attain a new generation of Harlequin readers.
- Prove Harlequin owns romance by generating awareness of the patent application;
- Garner and the interest of target demographic by starting a social media conversation;
- Encourage consumers to engage with the brand in an unprecedented, interactive way.
