Brand Connections, one of the largest marketing and media companies in the US, announced today that Aquaphor has selected the company as one of its partners in product sampling and brand marketing. This relationship marks the second time Aquaphor and Brand Connections have worked together in this exclusive network.
Beginning January 1, 2010, this three month program will allow for the distribution of over 500,000 product samples at participating mountain resorts throughout the United States. The Aquaphor Gift Pack samples will be distributed at hotel check in as well as hand-to-hand on the mountains.
"We are very pleased to partner once again with Aquaphor to help this brand reach their active consumer market while they are being active", said Brian Martin founder and chief executive of Brand Connections. "This represents an opportunity for a leading brand to connect with millions of its consumers through one category exclusive network. The marketing strategy focuses on a targeted audience in a manner that has proven to be extremely effective in increasing the sales of national name brands".
Brand Connections' clients benefit from increased brand recollection and intent to purchase. "We subsequently track the progress made by measuring the effects of this brand recall and submitting the statistical data to demonstrate the ad's success," says Martin.
"Based on the positive results we have seen in working with the Active Outdoor network in the past, we are pleased to extend the relationship with Brand Connections for the 2010 winter season," said Lisa Carnevale, Product Manager, Beiersdorf.
The advertising experts at Brand Connections integrate a multi-platform network specifically created for the individual brand through the use of product sampling at hotel check in, hand to hand on the mountains, and literature placement in room through the nation's largest outdoor network.
