Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) November 1, 2004
Imagine getting your advertisements into consumersÂ hands 260 billion times a year. For many marketers, the prospect is uncanny.
Advercan, a new can-top label for soda, power drink and beer cans, is the worldÂs first Can Top Media Campaign. The product, a 5 layer plastic label, debuts this week at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, with cans of Coca-Cola sporting the new ADVERCAN labels.
Five years in development, the six-layer plastic ADVERCAN label serves as both an advertising medium and a ÂCleancapÂÂ designed to keep the can top clean from the bottling plant to the store shelf. The protective seal can thwart the spread of dirt, germs and other contaminants.
With the ability to print a message on both sides of the label, marketers can create a variety of marketing strategies with this unique new media. Fountain Power Boats (http://www.fountain1.com), Boating Magazine, Rob Report and Mercury engines each have ADVERCAN ads being distributed at the show. The medium is helping market, brand, and build company awareness and traffic to the companiesÂ Web sites and toll-free numbers.
ÂAdvercan is a powerful marketing medium thatÂs a perfect fit for todayÂs health-conscious consumer,Â said Kenny Mac McClintock, ADVERCANÂs founder with mother Glenna Ann McClintock. With the guidance of befriended MBAs, the company received the Southern Methodist University Cox School of Business 2004 Business Plan Award for ADVERCANÂs business model, in part for its marketing focus, FDA approval and environmentally conscious anti-litter messaging.
ÂAdvertisers are always looking for ways to reach consumers with unique new messaging,Â McClintock said. ÂThis label double-delivers: It promotes the advertiser, and creates cleaner can.Â
The Advercan media concept has been discussed for Microsoft MSNÂs ÂSwitcher Campaign,Â with guidance from McCann-Erickson Advertising. The concept also was reviewed for implementation in Cott BottlingÂs San Antonio, Texas, plant for Wal-MartÂs SamÂs Choice brand beverages.
For bottlers, AdvercanÂs new media revenue stream can help lower the cost of canning beverages. Advercan is capable of labeling 200,000 cans daily at its facility in Dallas, Texas. The cost is comparable to imprinting a can with a marketerÂs message, McClintock said. The process offers a secure beverage solution, more attractive food packaging and delivery medium. It also assists marketers in sales, branding, and millions in potential advertising revenues, which could offset costs related to soda and syrup, thus driving profits straight to the bottom line.
With billions of dollars in advertising revenues looking for the next big marketing tool, team Advercan is contacting package goods companies, professional sports teams and leagues, and the advertising agencies that serve them.
ÂThis simple beverage solution serves bottlers, marketers and consumers alike. ADVERCAN now holds the first-place notice to have launched this new media,Â said Glenna McClintock. ÂNow that itÂs a go, just watch us grow.Â
Advercan has earned several copyrights claiming 128 can top art uses and animations; five patents pending; 1,200 can-top domain names, and more than 20 trademarks.
