Campaign Imminent: Toro appoints Periscope as creative, media AOR ahead of spring


Subject: TV, B2B, radio, online, digital, sponsorship

Company: Winmo) Bloomington, MN-based maker of lawn care and snow removal equipment. 

Opportunity: Recently Periscope as creative and media AOR after a review. Male-focused sellers should seek dollars tied to a new campaign to launch in spring (Q2), when lawn care companies, including Toro, tend to run most of their advertising. In fact, last year all of Toro’s national TV ads, the majority of its ad budget, ran between April and the end of May. 

Additional Insight

Incumbent: Minneapolis-based 

Media Spend: Toro has spent about $5 million annually on measured media since 2013, according to Kantar Media. Over that span, at least $3 million has gone to broadcast, the majority of which supports cable TV ads.

The remaining budget is spent mostly on B2B magazines, display and national spot radio ads.

TV Breakdown: Last year, Toro spent $3.9 million on national TV ads (see targeting right), up from $2.6 million in 2014, according to iSpot.tv.

Digital Breakdown: Toro runs the vast majority of display with news sites (surprised that sports aren’t a bigger part of the mix?). Top targeted sites over the last year include weather.com, wunderground.com, sfgate.com, dailyherald.com, espn.com, thechive.com and dailykos.com. 

Most of Toro’s impressions the past year were bought via ad networks but site direct placements make up a substantial part of the mix too.
