Somersby has launched a campaign in partnership with Uncle Grey Agency, Copenhagen and adapted by TBWA\Melbourne for the Australian audience, called ‘Isn’t that wonderful’.
Rolling out through December, the new concept is based on today’s world becoming increasingly uncertain with people tending to miss the positive happenings around them.
‘Isn’t that wonderful’ instead aims to remain refreshingly optimistic with Somersby embodying the ‘glass half full’ philosophy.
To build their understanding of Australian optimism, Somersby, with the support of market research agency, T Garage, completed an extensive research process with their target audience of 18 to 39-year olds.
Asahi Premium Beverages general manager marketing Australia Michael Edmonds said: “On this next journey, we want to remind people to embrace the lighter side of life by becoming the champions of optimism through our light-hearted, playful and generous personality…and we wanted to ensure we knew exactly what that optimism looks like to Australians, specifically.”
With a digital mindset, Somersby has created premium content that showcases both the product, and comments on culturally relevant moments in the world through ‘Somersby-coloured goggles’.
Asahi Premium Beverages group marketing manager beer and cider Kym Bonollo said: “I believe we’ve built a really nice way of championing Somersby’s new brand positioning through relevant content-driven storytelling that will speak to our consumers in a new and refreshing way, especially over this key summer period.”
Somersby’s intention with media is to increase focus on the digital landscape, to land the campaign through video display, social media, digital and outdoor platforms from November 2018 to April 2019.
This rollout, via media agency Vizeum, will be backed by a solid media investment of more than $3 million across the summer period.
The introduction the campaign will also support the launch of Somersby’s Lower Carb cider and Watermelon to market in late 2018.
