Vodafone, the Cell Phone Carrier, Repositions Itself to be a Communications & Technology Platform
Client/Agency: Vodafone/Media Team OMD
Campaign: HD TV Launch: Context Everywhere
Campaign objective: Vodafone, one of the largest mobile phone providers in Europe, sought to reposition itself as the leading “all-in-one” supplier of consumer home connectivity and HDTV entertainment.
Contextual Strategy: With a new suite of products to release, Vodafone is using all four of Vibrant’s contextual products – Vibrant In-Text, Vibrant Display, Vibrant Bar and Vibrant Image – to deliver a German Media First “Context Everywhere” strategy. To help with repositioning, the brand owns the word “HDTV” wherever it appears within tech, entertainment and men’s lifestyle content.
Creative Execution: Each contextual product is leveraged differently to achieve overall campaign objectives: Vibrant In-Text features a humorous video that demonstrates Vodafone’s commitment to innovation; Vibrant Display targets entertainment content to encourage people to switch to Vodafone; Vibrant Ad Bar features search functionality to drive consumers to its HDTV website to learn more; Vibrant Image appears on relevant entertainment images to further align Vodafone with high def and entertainment.
