Q4 Media Opps: La Brea Bakery launches first national TV ad for Thanksgiving campaign

Subject: TV, digital, earned media, online

Brand: Aryzta, a leading manufacturer and distributor of bread, buns, cookies, pizza and other premium baked goods.

Opportunity: Sellers looking for last minute revenue to hit their EOY goals should go after La Brea. After running its "Thanksgiving Heroes" campaign for the first time last year, La Brea is ramping up advertising for this year's iteration. Although this is the brand's second year running the campaign, this marks the first year that the campaign will run on national TV. In fact, it marks the first year that the brand will ever run a national TV ad. 

The new spot, titled "Nominate Your Thanksgiving Hero" debuted for the first time on Nov. 1 and only ran through Nov. 6 costing the brand $55,841, per iSpot. The ad was created to say "Thank You" to the men and women working on Thanksgiving by encouraging people to nominate a hero in their community to receive a La Brea holiday meal. The reason it had such a short run period was because the contest only ran through Nov. 20; however, the fact that the brand is spending money on national TV ads, even if it is for a short period, means that marketing spend is on the way up. 

Additionally, Pathmatics reports that digital spend has almost doubled since last year, which means that marketing spend is increasing across multiple platforms. Therefore, sellers need to reach out now to pick up any last minute holiday dollars, as Q4 remains to be the brand's top advertising period. This means that sellers should also reach out through the first half of the year while planning for next Q4 will likely be underway. 

Currently it Matter Communications is handling PR.
