TV, Digital, Print Opps: Blue Bunny launches brand refresh with new creative, media agencies


Subject: TV, print, digital, social media, experiential, outdoor

Company: here).

Opportunity: After shuffling agency relationships around a few times last year (more iSpot, the spot has run 376 times in the one weeks it has been on air, adding up to $1.4 million spent already.

In addition to national TV, the Blue Bunny campaign will feature local TV, magazine, OOH, digital and search elements. Therefore, continue reaching out for summer revenue – when ice cream advertising is at its peak. 

Last summer, Blue Bunny moved media to Omnicom's GSD&M, Chicago  and, earlier this year, the brand reportedly moved creative to Bolder Brands.

Additional Information

Media Spend: According to Kantar Media, Blue Bunny spent $4.2 million on measured media in 2014 – mostly allocated to print ads (87.6%). The remainder went to digital display, OOH and search ads. 

National TV Spend: For 2015, Blue Bunny did not spend any money on national TV ads, per iSpot. In fact, the ice cream brand has not run any national TV spot since 2013, when $3.2 million was spent to air two spots during shows such as “Law & Order: SVU,” “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,” “Chopped,” “House Hunters International” and “Mystery Diners.” 2013 spots ran from June 16 to August 4 (roughly eight weeks). 

For the new spot, top show targeting (seen in charts) is markedly different from three years ago. The spot has run for only a week and Blue Bunny has already spent $1.4 million to air it (compare with the $3.2 million spent to air 2013 spots for eight weeks.)

Since the new campaign has debuted much earlier in the year than is typical for ice cream/popsicles, etc., sellers can expect spend to be higher than Blue Bunny has traditionally spent. 

Digital Breakdown: Moat reports that Blue Bunny tan 27 display ads on 14 publishers in 2015 (14% mobile). Sellers, much like national TV ads, these digital display ads were deployed mostly in the summer (from late June to early Sept). Top ad destinations included: thekrazycouponlady.com, utsports.com, siuoxcityjournal.com and mysavings.com (99% placed site direct).  This is actually a decrease from 2014, when 47 display and 126 high impact ads were run on 38 publishers (3% mobile; 95% placed site direct). 

Most of Blue Bunny’s display ads for 2015 were run on arts & entertainment sites, but sellers should note that the two display ads Blue Bunny has run in 2016 were run on news sites.
