Avocados from Mexico Commercial and Multichannel Campaign
Avocados from Mexico (AFM), the U.S.-based promotional arm of the Mexican avocado industry, announced its return to the Super Bowl with the roll out of a brand-new multichannel marketing campaign in the run up to the Super Bowl, culminating in a 30-second TV advert during the final on February 13. Actions include the House of Goodness, where consumers can take a virtual tour of an avocado-themed home hosted by NFL star Drew Brees; in-store QR codes that drive directly to the brand’s website and a new partnership with eCommerce Acceleration platform MikMak. Through a strategic partnership with LiveRamp, a data connectivity platform, MikMak will enable the produce brand to both better understand its online shoppers and acquire, analyze and enrich its first-party data with a 360 view of the most valuable shoppers. These added capabilities will enable AFM to continue to build brand recognition while driving sales from branded assets. “We’ve built the AFM brand on a foundation of innovation – now, we’re back in the Big Game with not only an ad but another innovative, fully integrated campaign,” said Alvaro Luque, AFM’s president and CEO. “We’re leading into the future by combining best-in-class brand building with data- and technology-enabled shopper and digital strategies that will make the 2022 Big Game campaign the most effective we’ve had to date,” Luque added. Check out how Avocados from Mexico commercial promotion in the 2015 Super Bowl was supported and extended with technological innovations.
