Millennial Media Opps: 7UP launches campaign with new messaging, reintroduces brand image
Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, recently launched its newest campaign "Mix It Up a Little," in order to reintroduce the brand as one of the most versatile beverages in its category. To do this, the new campaign will focus on encouraging consumers to "mix up" their uses of 7UP, whether that's drinking it straight, using it as a mixer or even cooking with it. The creative is set to run across national media channels, including TV, digital and social media, as well as strong shopper marketing and retail activation programming through out the year.
Already, the campaign kicked off with a new national TV spot titled "Mix It Up a Little: Yacht," which aired for the first time on Feb. 13 and has cost $6.3 million thus far, iSpot reports. The spot features rapper 2 Chainz, and takes a comedic approach to demonstrating the different ways to use 7UP as a drink mixer. While the ad clearly demonstrates that the brand is taking a millennial-focused approach to its new marketing, this spot in particular seems to demonstrate that the brand plans on targeting legal drinking age (LDA) millennials in particular.
Therefore, sellers with high ROI LDA millennial engagement strategies should begin reaching out now to secure current campaign dollars as they become available. Be sure to seek revenue tied to earned media, TV and digital. Note that digital display spend this year is more than double what it was for all of 2016, according to Initiative NY.
Media Spend: Kantar Media reports that for the first three quarters of 2016, 7UP spent $16.3 million on measured media, in comparison to the $34.5 million spent for all of 2015. Since 2014, broadcast has continued to make up the largest portion of media spend.
Digital Breakdown: According to Pathmatics, so far this year, 7UP has spent $348,700 on digital display ads, more than half of which were placed site direct on top ad destination topix.com.
