H2 Media Opps: Clorox consolidates creative with FCB, McGarryBowen, Dentsu Aegis


Subject: digital, online, mobile, TV, print, multicultural, Hispanic, sponsorship

Company: Winmo), headquartered in Oakland, Calif., manufactures and markets products in eight categories: Laundry; Home Care; Bags, Wraps & Containers; Charcoal; Cat Litter; Food; Water Filtration; and Natural Personal Care.

Update (4/27): here). FCB, handling the account out of Chicago and San Francisco, is responsible for Glad trash/food protection, and Liquid-Plumr, along with global cleaning brands Clorox and Pine-sol. McGarryBowen is on specialty brands, including Kingsford, Brita, Fresh Step and  Burt’s Bees. Dentsu Aegis will handle the KC Masterpiece and Hidden Valley food brands out of its San Fran office because of McGarry’s conflict with Kraft.

Therefore, with new creative on the way, sellers should be on top of securing traditional and digital new campaign ad revenue across these brands. Burt’s Bees is particularly intriguing because its ad investments are going way up this year and beyond (research here).

Female head of household focused sellers, particularly digital readers offering high ROI mobile extensions, should have the edge since Clorox is moving more budget into digital advertising (more below).  Media planning and buying AOR OMD wasn’t affected by the review…yet.

Incumbents: DDB was creative AOR for about 20 years, according to the List, SF.  Omnicom sibling Critical Mass and WPP’s AKQA also assisted with digital creative.

Raleigh, NC-based Baldwin& handled creative for Burt's Bees, which is expanding globally and expanding further into beauty products (research here).

Below originally published 2/22

Opportunity: Clorox is growing its mobile presence, a move that comes shortly after it announced that 40% of its overall ad budget would be going to digital (more here). And by “growing,” the company means that mobile will comprise the biggest portion of its digital dollars, at least for the foreseeable future. Senior media director Ellen Liu told AdAge that the company does not, however, have a “standalone” mobile strategy, opting rather to have mobile integrated into its marketing, communication and media strategies, and that Clorox is “trying to embrace the utility and value that the channel brings.”

Part of this integrated strategy involves using responsive design for all brand websites that will work on mobile and embracing Google's “micro-moments” to drive mobile views. Per Liu, these “how-to or need-to” views that micro-moments facilitates will “inevitably” lead to search advertising. The final component of the strategy is the integration of mobile with TV buys. For example, Hidden Valley Ranch sponsors Bravo's “Top Chef,” and also the show's online and on-demand extension, “Last Chance Kitchen.” Additionally, Clorox brand Burt's Bees has done marketing with Snapchat and other Clorox brands are likely to follow suit with vertical video for the platform.

This is just the latest in a shift that WinmoEdge has been telling you about for about a year (more AKQA handles Clorox's digital planning and buying and we understand that most digital placements go through AKQA's trading desk.
