Have a lovely holiday… and a tonic! ;)

My blog goes on vacation until September. I hope you’ll miss it! 😉 In the meantime, I wish you a marvellous summer and I leave you with a very unexpected tip for your holidays: as I discovered from the Thomas Henry’s advertising campaign, you can use tonic to avoid mosquitos bites. Have a look at their commercial if you don’t believe me 😉

Nivea: new need, new product

The aim of strategic marketing is being able to answer the new needs of an individual with new ideas and then new products. Nivea have discovered a new necessity behind the trend of sportsmen – and not just them – shaving almost all their bodies and the brand have answered this with a new product – launching it thanks to an appealing advertising campaign.

Bad days, healthy walks

Having a walk of at least 30 minutes per day is very important to stay fit and healthy: it alone can reduce the risk of heart attack by 20%. In order to stress and imprint this fundamental concept in people’s minds, FFC – French Federation of Cardiology have created and launched a social campaign targeted especially for women.

Appliances and cardboard furniture

Because of the recent recession, the increasing number of single households and the rise of house prices, in Korea more often young people are living in small studios of a maximum of 28 sqm. Those people need to optimise the use of space but also to avoid not being able to show their style, so Himade have had the idea to launch a line of appliances dedicated to them.

New media: the “Pax it” button [IKEA]

IKEA have had their umpteenth idea and have individuated the umpteenth new media to use for advertising. “Pax it” is one of the latest IKEA online campaigns, the one that has transformed the shopping cart button of WeAre ecommerce on the most clicked banner of all times. Don’t you believe me, continue reading, then! 🙂

People that match houses [Re/Max]

The real estate world is one that should be able to support people and companies in finding properties that can meet their needs and their work or life style. Re/Max have launched a multi-subject and multi-platform advertising campaign in order to underline their ability to find properties that are the right match for the potential buyer.

Cultivate bags

Recycling is fundamental and everybody is trying to find a solution especially for those occasions in which plastic is still used too much. Supermarkets should be the first concern because of all the plastic packaging still used there, in particular in the fruits and veggies area. FEEDitBaG is an alternative to the thin plastic bag used in that supermarket area.
