FiOS Upgrade

When consumers purchased an HDTV at participating Big Box stores, they received a coded coupon from Verizon FiOS. WSITS built a website that allowed a consumer to enter the code from the coupon and find out what discount or free service they were eligible for if they became a Verizon FiOS customer. Customers could sign up for FiOS service through the site. WSITS passed on the data to Verizon and the coupon credit would appear on future bills. Read More


WSITS modified the Taylor Swift karaoke contest platform for use in a Pittsburgh-focused Win a Man Cave contest. Contestants could upload a photo or video showing why they deserved to win a man cave makeover. Visitors could vote on each entry and forward the entries they liked best to friends. WSITS also filmed a video with Pittsburgh Steeler Ryan Clark and his family to introduce the contest. Read More

Small Business Spotlight

Verizon wanted to build awareness of its small business products, capture customer information and ultimately drive sales among SO/HO (single owner, home-owned) businesses in the nine-state Northeast and Mid-Atlantic region. WSITS designed and developed a microsite that focused on the hyper-local deals for products and services offered in the East Coast regions. Visitors are brought to the site through a number of methods, including a paid search campaign that uses zip code targeting to pre-sort business owners and direct them to custom URLs with specialized content focused on the products and packages available in their region.

Taylor Swift Sing to Win Karaoke

In order to promote Verizon FiOS and a Taylor Swift concert tour, WSITS created a contest platform that allowed users to upload a karaoke video of themselves singing a Taylor Swift song. Visitors to the site could view the videos, forward them to a friend and vote on the video they liked best. The videos shuffled randomly to give all contestants a fair shot at appearing on the first page of entrants. The videos auto-played when the site opened. Read More

TV Choice

Verizon wanted to offer its FiOS TV service to New Jersey residents, but the state’s laws required cable companies to negotiate with individual municipalities for the right to deliver TV service. The company approached Winning Strategies to develop a grassroots mobilizaiton effort to education consumers about the issue and provide them tools to support the cause of TV choice. Through a “Take Action” component on TVChoiceNJ.com, consumers were guided through simple steps to contact their state and local representatives regarding the issue. Registrants were kept up to date with a weekly e-newsletter. A password-protected section provided information customized for mayors and legislators. Read More

Ultimate Eye Candy

Verizon wanted to create a buzz before introducing its FiOS TV service to New Jersey consumers. WSITS presented the Ultimate Eye Candy online game show, a reality-based program that married elements of popular TV shows: homemade videos, celebrity judges and viewer participation through video upload and voting. Participants could upload videos describing their ultimate eye candy or attend an event where street teams filmed videos. On ultimateeyecandy.com, visitors could view the videos and vote for their favorites. “Survivor” contestant Stephenie Lagrossa was one of three celebrity judges who responded comically to each video. The contest ran for six weeks before the announcement that it was sponsored by Verizon. Read More
