Big Snap was a Windows Live Search campaign to drive useage of Live Search and increase market share.


Users were invited to use 'Big Snap Search' as their everyday search engine, meaning every search they made gave them the opportunity to win. Prizes included John Lewis vouchers and a trip to Necker Island, supplied by Virgin.


A prize was given away every hour for 8 weeks.


The mechanic of the campaign involved 2 cards flipping over to reveal the faces. If the cards matched then you won the prizes shown on the cards.


The promotion was pushed further by the involvement of BBC's Dick & Dom, an extensive ad inventory, MSN homepage modules and a bespoke Big Snap landing page.


Big Snap was a hugely successful campaign, and as soon as it finished it switched over to Indy Search to promote the new Indiana Jones 4 movie.
