Sales Leads: Univision-Starcom, CVS, Kohl’s, Macy’s
Univision Communications has announced its largest single-agency Upfront deal, clinching a "video-neutral" pact with Starcom USA and its Tapestry multicultural division that will bring ad dollars from brands like Burger King, Mars/Wrigley and Kellogg to the Hispanic media company's broadcast, radio and online assets. The deal encompasses Univision's two network broadcast networks, three rated cable channels, local TV, radio stations, and online, mobile and social video destinations. “This deal emphasizes that the shift happening in the marketplace is real—one that mirrors the changing demographics of this country and the new American reality the Hispanic boom is driving,” said David Lawenda, the president of advertising sales and marketing at Univision Communications. Financial terms were not disclosed, but sources familiar with the negotiations peg its value in the nine-figures.
CVSpharmacy is taking a greater step toward targeting the Hispanic market with the launch of its new Spanish-language website.Like the English-language site, the Spanish version, located at http://es.cvs.com, enables shoppers to manage their prescription account, get health information, purchase products, access coupons, etc. According to a MediaPost article, Google indicated that the new CVS Spanish website consists of 67,000 pages, most of which are product SKUs. As previously reported by Drug Store News, CVS is working to take its digital program to new heights in the coming years. This move is clearly in line with that initiative, and represents a great opportunity for CVS to further reach its Hispanic shoppers. (Dawn Marie Gray, Senior Marketing Manager, Multicultural at CVS Caremark Corporation and Portada Editorial Board member, just confirmed her presence at Portada’s Hispanic Mobile Marketing Forum on Sept. 19th in New York City).
