News Corp Australia-owned website has unveiled a new consumer campaign that aims to show the website is “the place to be if you want to be part of every conversation”.

Created in partnership with Bohemia Group, part of the M&C Saatchi Group, the campaign evolves the brand’s proposition with a new positioning and a call to action, to be on it. managing director Richard Skimin said: “Our previous consumer campaign, the news in colour, was really successful for the brand and ran for almost six years celebrating the breadth of’s content.

“With the launch of our new campaign today, the goal is to shift the focus from us to our audiences. We don’t just want to show what we offer, but rather we want to capture the role that can play in our readers’ lives.” editor-in-chief Lisa Muxworthy said the new brand campaign has a modern, fresh feel designed to reflect how the site talks to its audience every day.

“ has a loyal monthly audience of more than 10.6 million [according to Nielsen data],” she said.

“We have a strong focus on increasing our younger audience in 2021 with a lot planned for the year ahead, from new video and audio projects to campaigns and a financial planning series for young people.”

As part of the new positioning, a “vibrant” mnemonic has been created as a branding device that will be used across the brand platform which includes the site’s homepage, video and social content and across all elements of the brand campaign.

Bohemia Group CEO Brett Dawson said: “It’s a privilege to partner with such an iconic Australian brand with such influence and reach.

“We needed a big platform idea that imbued the breadth and distinctive tone of, one that attracted and retained audiences, and worked in consumer and trade contexts.

“Be on it. The new customer promise and call to action. It has endless scale and flexibility to work at a brand level and with the news cycle. It has a sense of urgency, a call to action towards the brand, for both audiences and advertisers. So all you need to do to be on it, is be on it.”
