Purina® Pro Plan® Unveils New Integrated Marketing Campaign Focused on Unleashing Greatness in Every Dog
ST. LOUIS, Feb. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Greatness lies in every dog, but it takes a motivated pet owner to bring it out. This is the key insight behind the new Purina® Pro Plan® integrated marketing campaign, “Inside Every Good Dog is a Great Dog.” Created by Leo Burnett and Arc Worldwide, the campaign includes a full complement of television, social, mobile and out-of-home components.
The campaign launches during the prestigious 136th Westminster Kennel Club All Breed Dog Show in New York City, where Nestle Purina is the official pet food sponsor of this year’s show.
Purina Portfolio Director of Specialty, Breeder and Pet Acquisition Candy Caciolo believes the campaign will resonate with involved pet owners, saying, “We believe in unleashing greatness in every dog. Our campaign clearly conveys this message and champions our premium Purina Pro Plan brand as a key ingredient for pet owners to uncover greatness in their dogs.”
The “Inside Every Good Dog is a Great Dog” campaign includes:
- A television commercial titled “Great” airing during the Westminster Kennel Club All Breed Dog Show on Feb. 13 and 14 on USA Network. The commercial is also accessible online. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6D3rwe-386c)
- An interactive mobile website (http://www.ProPlan.com/great) available for dog lovers near and far to learn more about their four-legged friend. The application is comprised of more than 180 different breed profiles outlining specific interests, unique and sometimes little-known qualities, or even a breed’s ability to learn new tasks and tricks. This application is also accessible on Facebook.
- A Facebook application titled “Great Video” allowing users to upload photos of their own dog to the Purina Pro Plan’s “Great” TV spot and share on their Facebook page. (http://www.facebook.com/ProPlan)
- Out-of-home advertising consisting of a wrapped New York City bus touting the “Inside Every Good Dog is a Great Dog” tagline and campaign visuals. The bus will be wrapped to complement the Westminster Kennel Club All Breed Dog Show taking place at Madison Square Garden.
According to Tony Rogers, singer/songwriter of the television commercial “Great” and VP, Creative Director of Leo Burnett and Arc Worldwide, “We hope this campaign inspires people to take the joy and pride of owning a pet to a new level. We believe that inside every good dog is a great dog, no matter what the shape or size, and we encourage dog owners to help their dogs realize greatness, every day.”
