MONTREAL, Nov. 25, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - With winter fast approaching, Bell Media Mix has partnered with ZenithOptimedia to maximize the brand awareness of HELIXIA™ in the highly-competitive cough remedy market. HELIXIA™ is a brand composed of products made from only naturally-sourced medicinal ingredients clinically proven to relieve the symptoms of coughs and colds and that are available over the counter. Targeting mothers with children under 12, the six-week campaign launched November 18 is executed via Astral Out-of-Home properties as well as Bell Media television channels.
"We are pleased to put our team's excellence and Bell Media's multiple platforms and brands to the service of HELIXIA™ for yet another Bell Media Mix campaign that is as targeted as it is creative," said Michelle LaBarre, Vice-President, Bell Media Mix.
For HELIXIA™'s first appearance on TV, two 30-second messages were developed and produced as "health capsules", featuring Katrine Paradis, mom and host of new show UN PETIT GÂTEAU À LA FOIS on Canal Vie. She was chosen for her boundless energy and community involvement, particularly with the Sainte-Justine Hospital for more than 10 years.
These messages will air on Canal Vie, Canal D, Séries+, and Musimax, as well as on the youth channels VRAK TV, TÉLÉTOON, and TÉLÉTOON Rétro, which garner excellent mother-child ratings. The campaign also includes a sponsorship comprising of 15-second opening banners to announce the start of a show, as well as innovative programming schedules.
The OOH component will feature a variety of executions on eight digital faces across the Greater Montréal Area. MARK − Astral Out-of-Home's exclusive visual optimization service − was utilized to measure and maximize the visual attraction of the ads' key elements.
