Over 1.3 million views of new TENA campaign

Newsfeatures SCA - Thu, 2015-04-23 14:36

Within the underwear segment, TENA has distinguished itself as a global leader in terms of absorption and safety with the TENA Pants products.

Image..With the launch of TENA Discret in January this year, TENA in Mexico is now entering a new territory to strengthen its position as market leader and to gain market shares from our competitors by attending to the consumer needs. The product is positioned as a new option for women who are looking for protection without sacrificing femininity. This is achieved by giving the product unique attributes:

. New French cut
. Exclusive nude color
. Thinner design and lower waist cut

A 360° campaign was implemented in order to ensure success of the product launch. This also allows TENA to build a strong emotional bonding with their target group.   

The 360° campaign

  1. Digital campaign - TENA launched #SigueAdelante, a digital campaign based on a strong and relevant consumer insight: women can come through everything as they always have.  The purpose is to remind our consumers that they have no reason, including incontinence, to stop feeling feminine or secure about themselves. So far, with only one month since the launch, we have reached over 1.3 million views on Facebook.
  2. Internal launch - more than 200 employees from the Mexican organization had the opportunity to get to know, experiment and engage with our brand strategy.
  3. Point of Sale Campaign - unique POS materials and consumer experiences throughout the most important points of sale in Mexico.
  4. Media -presence and special activities in magazines and national TV.
  5. TENA out of home advertising - presence in important outdoor advertising channels such as billboards, buses, bus stops, theater restrooms and on Mexico City's subway; through which we reach more than 5.4 million people daily.
  6. Giveaways - handing out product samples in important areas with high concentration of the target group (point of sale, medical clinics, hospitals, parks, forums, etc).
  7. Press conference - more than 30 representatives from target media attended a press briefing where they were given insight to the emotional impact of incontinence for women as well as the benefits of TENA Discret.

See the campaign on TENAs Mexican Facebook page or learn more about TENA in Mexico.
