Print, Digital Opps: Blue Bunny ice cream scoops up new AOR


Subject: spot TV, national magazine, digital, social media, experiential 

Company: here).

Opportunity: Blue Bunny ice cream has named MDC’s Colle + McVoy as its AOR. In this capacity, C+M will handle all strategic planning, creative and media buying duties. Blue Bunny’s measured media spend skews heavily to national magazines, so those sellers should have a leg up here. Keep in mind, too, that there is probably opportunity for digital, social media and spot TV, as well. 

Additional Insight

Incumbent:    

Competitors:  iSpot.tv‘s top spenders in the ice cream and frozen treat category includes: Klondike, Magnum, Haagen-Dazs, Breyers, Baskin-Robbins, Iskream, Graeter’s. Popsicle, Dreyers, and Chill Factor.

Media Spend: According to Kantar Media, Blue Bunny spent $10.4 million on measured media in 2014 – an 11.1% decrease from 2013. Most of this – $8.5 million – was allocated to national magazine ads. The remainder was split between spot TV ($1.3 million), display ads ($480,000) and OOH ($27,000).

Digtial Breakdown: Per Moat, Blue Bunny has run 21 standard display ads on five publishers so far this year (40% mobile). Top publishers include utsports.com, thekrazycouponlady.com, siouxcityjournal.com, 961kiss.com and empoweredsustencance.com. This is a significant decrease from the same period in 2014, when 29 creatives were run on 29 publishers (note, however, that mobile is up from only 3%).
