A Mystery Sales or Marketing Promotion can be created for any product, anywhere, for any duration, on any budget. Our professional team can take your requirements, audience profile, budget and target dates and develop a tasteful, effective mystery-based contest or promotion to get the word out.
Whether it is for your staff, customers or the general public, and whether it lasts three days or three years, we can deliver, local, statewide or national.
Here are some examples of work done for several of our satisfied clients:
Hollywood's legendary studio, Paramount Pictures along with Hyatt Hotels teamed up with Keith & Margo's Murder Mystery Weekend to promote the release of Clue: The Movie by offering Murder Mystery Weekends in the top 18 markets nationwide.
We developed a series of scripts and produced all 18 Murder Mystery Weekends over a 2 month period at the Hyatt properties with winners from each weekend going to a playoff weekend in the famed Atlanta Peachtree Hyatt and the winner from that weekend ultimately going to London, England for a week of mystery related activities.
MCA Records, an American-based record company, now Universal Music Group approached us to help increase traffic in their retail outlets and promote sales of Country and Western artists recording under the Universal/MCA label.
We developed a multi-level sales promotion which included print, broadcast media and in-store Point of Purchase displays. Customers were encouraged to listen to lyrics of Universal/MCA Music Country and Western artists to find clues to solve a mail-in mystery. The Prize? A chance to attend a Murder Mystery Weekend at the Universal Sheraton hosted by Waylon Jennings!
Ingram Micro Inc, the worldwide IT distributor, sales, marketing and logistics company and ViewSonic Corporation a world leader and manufacturer of visual technology came to us for help to create any awareness and promote sales of ViewSonic products among the Ingram Micro sales force.
We wrote and developed a total of four quarterly online mysteries available exclusively to the Ingram Micro sales force. To win, the salespeople earned points for solving the actual mysteries which were added to points awarded from sales of ViewSonic products. Prizes were awarded from a multi-level prize structure with grand prize winners attending Murder Mystery Weekends at world-class resorts.
TNT's "Armchair Detective Sweepstakes"
Two high-profile shows teamed up on the "Armchair Detective Mystery Weekend," and a Keith & Margo's Murder Mystery Weekend experience which we produced for TNT at two Hyatt Resorts. 50 fans spent a weekend trying to solve crimes just like The Closer's Brenda Leigh Johnson and Rizzoli & Isles' Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles.
In a twist on popular murder-mystery parties, the Armchair Detective Mystery Weekend experience began with a nationwide sweepstakes to choose the participants. The winners and a guest won all expense paid trips to either the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort & Spa in California or the Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort & Spa in Santa Ana, NM-- A huge success for TNT, Keith & Margo's Murder Mystery Weekend and Hyatt Hotels!
Steven King's "Storm of the Century"
We worked with The ABC TV Network to help increase awareness and audiences for Steven King's mega Movie "Storm of The Century."
We created a month-long nationwide radio promotion where listeners could call in and answer questions about Steve King's novels and movies. Winners then qualified to attend a Murder Mystery Weekend in Bangor, Maine, site of the Steven King House.
To increase awareness and audiences for PAX TV's broadcast of a series of Mary Higgins Clark made-for-television movies they came to us for a three-month nationwide promotion.
PAX TV viewers entered a contest to win a Murder Mystery Weekend hosted by Mary Higgins Clark, best-selling suspense novelist.
Murder Mystery USA was approached by The Town of Riverhead to develop a plan to attract customers to the downtown area and increase awareness of local merchants, services and attractions.
We created a three-day event, (which is now an annual tradition), whereby residents and visitors were invited to solve a mystery by going door-to-door at participating stores gathering clues and interviewing suspects in order to solve a crime.
The result? Prizes and a memorable time that will keep them talking for months.
The British Columbia Pharmacy Association wanted to do something that would accomplish two things for their annual trade show - first to be very different and unusual and second, to encourage the attendees to stop by as many of the exhibitors' booths as possible.
Murder Mystery Promotions developed and created an interactive mystery based on the classic Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express, turning the entire exhibit floor into a period adventure where a detective headed an investigation that challenged the attendees to visit as many booths as time would allow and help solve a cold case mystery. The result? - The greatest number of attendee visits to exhibitor booths in their history.
Since 1985, Keith & Margo's Mystery Events has been responsible for more excitement and skulduggery around the country than any other group event planner producing more than 6,000 murder mysteries around the world, for large and small organizations including almost every company listed in The Fortune 500!
