12/2/2017 Radio Captures Local Hispanic Flavor for Clamato

"The U.S. Hispanic population, according to research from Mott’s North America, is growing five times faster than the general market. But all Hispanics aren’t alike. Buying habits and taste preferences may differ among Hispanics from Mexican, Dominican or Puerto Rican origins. That’s why local radio is a key ingredient in Mott’s new Spanish-language campaign for Clamato tomato cocktail juice. "Radio," says Omar Garcia, brand manager, "allows us to specifically target different segments within the Hispanic market and to attain frequency."
Radio in 14 markets, including New York, will supplement Hispanic network television because of this targeting ability. "Different Hispanics use Clamato in different ways," says Garcia. Some Hispanic consumers, he explains, drink Clamato with un toque de limon ("a touch of lemon"), while others prefer salsa picante ("hot sauce").
"The Hispanic market is different throughout the U.S.," he points out. "Radio spots in New York and Miami, for example, are more neutral, while those west of the Mississippi tend to be more targeted toward Mexican Hispanics." The radio campaign, which is airing on three New York area stations, began in April, will intensify during the warmer summer months and will run through September. The radio, as well as TV and outdoor advertising, was created by Dallas-based ad agency, Dieste & Partners.
All of the Clamato advertising employs a new tagline, "clamato le pone sabor al momento" ("Clamato adds flavor to the moment."). Mike Judlow, Mott’s vice president of marketing, reiterating that, "our research shows Latino consumers use Clamato in a variety of ways," adds that,"we want to position our product as a delicious-tasting drink that enhances the time you share with family and friends."
The core target for the campaign, according to Warren Harmel, managing partner of Dieste & Partners, consists of "Spanish-language Clamato users who are married with children.""

12/2/2017 NY Radio Only Ad Medium for NuVim

"NuVim, a new ready-to-drink beverage designed to enhance the human immune system and help maintain healthy joints and muscles will be launched June 5 in the New York Market via a radio-only advertising campaign targeting adults, 35+.
The drink, a result of 35 years of clinical research and development by Cincinnati-based Stolle Milk Biologies Inc., contains the micro-nutrients, LactoMune and LactoActin, and will be available in the dairy departments of major area supermarkets in four flavors -- fruit symphony, orange tangerine, pink grapefruit & berry and strawberry vanilla
Because of the somewhat complex history of NuVim’s development, Richard P. Kundrat, chairman and CEO, says, "We needed radio’s 60 seconds. Radio gives us the ability to tell the story." Pointing out that there is "no TV and no print," Kundrat emphasizes that, "radio is more conversational. This is a conversation, not a hard sell." And research, Kundrat adds, showed that "people are going to drink the product in the morning and after they come home from work, so morning and afternoon drive is perfect."
Chief conversationalist is Dick Clark, who will be the spokesman for the campaign. "Dick," says Kundrat, "has a great radio voice, and he personifies what this product is about. He’s 70 and looks 55." Using the slogan, "Be Healthy & Energetic", the advertising will accentuate the benefits of the drink, while also stressing that it is "great-tasting".
The campaign, created by The Wolf Group New York, will air continuously through the end of the year -- from 75-120 commercials a week on about eight New York area stations reaching adults, 35+, with a female skew. The media buying is being handled by R.J. Palmer , Inc. Unlike many food and beverage products that are tested in smaller markets, NuVim is getting its debut in New York. "We spent $700,000 in research," Kundrat explains, "and we wanted to come into a market that’s tough and highly visible. If it can work here, it can work anywhere." The brand will probably go national in the first quarter of next year.
New York market radio stations, he explains, are acting as marketing partners with NuVim by creating special events such as an American Bandstand revival, including the product in existing events such as station sponsorship at the AP/Waldbaum’s Tennis Tournament or giving the beverage high visibility at a station-sponsored health expo."

12/2/2017 Radio Helps Siperstein's Stand Out

A husband and wife are shopping for wallpaper in one of those huge home centers when she realizes, "I don’t need big. I need someone who knows wallpaper." That’s one of the scenarios in a new radio commercial from Siperstein’s, a New Jersey-based home decorating chain that has shifted much of its advertising budget from newspapers to radio in order to distinguish itself from the large, multi-purpose home centers such as Home Depot.
"Radio is giving Siperstein’s a personality," says Ernie Fossa, partner at The GFS/Levinson Group, Siperstein’s ad agency. "It’s something they couldn’t get in newspaper ads." The target customer, Fossa adds, is adults, 25-54, with a male skew. In another of the creative executions, a husband tells a home center salesperson he’s looking for paint, and, "my wife wants it to be the same blue as this cup..." The store employee responds, "What do you think this is, Siperstein’s?"
The retailer had recently added some Connecticut locations to its New Jersey base, and this made the move to radio, combined with outdoor advertising, even more opportune. Siperstein’s, says Fossa, is only using newspapers on an insert basis, "to supplement heavy radio and outdoor. They’re 12 to 15 stations deep, taking advantage of weekend radio -- Friday thru Sunday.
"We looked at their competition in the market," Fossa continues, "and decided they could create awareness in radio." The campaign started the last week in March and will run through October. By early April, the creative was already breaking through with the message that, "If it has anything to do with wallpaper [not lawn mowers], paint [not plumbing] and window treatments [not the treatment], you’ll find it at Siperstein’s."
