ThinkNewsBrands has launched a campaign to showcase the power of advertising in news featuring top Australian marketers.
An extension of the ThinkNewsBrands brand platform, The Whole Story, the campaign highlights how news advertising has helped to solve key marketing challenges in a range of brand categories including automotive, finance, e-commerce and electronics.
Featuring bold portraiture of some of Australia’s most accomplished Chief Marketing Officers (CMOs) and a series of testimonial style videos, the campaign will run across the print and digital assets of ThinkNewsBrands shareholders including The Australian Financial Review, The West Australian and The Australian in addition to trade media placement.
ThinkNewsBrands General Manager Vanessa Lyons said: “Despite research proving the contrary, misconceptions linger around the power and effectiveness of advertising in news. This campaign uses the voice of esteemed peers and colleagues to drive reappraisal of news brands within our most important audience: marketers.”
Created by Edge for ThinkNewsBrands, the first instalment sees Nissan Marketing Director Geraldine Davys explaining how news does the heavy lifting allowing the brand to target the right customer, at the right time and with the right message.
In the coming months, the campaign will feature high-profile CMOs including Marley Spoon chief marketing and growth officer Kate Whitney, former Samsung chief marketing officer Josh Grace and former ANZ Bank head of personalisation, group marketing Trisca Scott-Branagan.
Edge executive director, account management Nicole Gardner said: “It’s been an honour to hero the rockstars of our industry – CMOs – and hearing how they are using news to support their businesses in creative and strategic ways. Advertising in news works and this campaign shows us how.”
