London, 27th September, 2011

In what is believed to be a mobile “first”, leading mobile marketing and technology company, Incentivated, has created a mobile internet petition site for the British Heart Foundation (BHF). The site (http://lifesaving.bhf.org.uk), which goes live next week (beginning of October), is being used to support the campaign to lobby Government to get every young person knowing how to save a life before they leave school. By adding a mobile-optimised site to the campaign, the BHF are hoping to capitalise on the increasing trend for people to access information from their phones, and not wait until they get to a desktop computer, when prompted by seeing posters or other advertising.

Nationwide advertising in support of the campaign will use their dedicated short code to allow people to text in and receive a link back to the website (text LIFESAVERS to 62233), or they will be able to click on a QR code that will also re-direct them to the website.

The campaign is lobbying to get Emergency Life support skills taught to children in school in order to raise the number of people able to provide simple medical assistance in an emergency situation.

Jonathan Bass, Managing Director, added: “It’s testament to the recognition that mobile is increasingly the response medium of choice for the British public that the British Heart Foundation has optimised their mobile petition site for this campaign. We are delighted to be assisting the British Heart Foundation to create a public debate on the importance of everyone knowing the necessary skills to save a life. Acquiring Emergency Life Support (ELS) skills when we are young should be as important as learning to read and write.”
