PUMA has launched three new products in Argentina; evoSPEEDSL soccer cleats and IGNITE XT running shoes, using Usain Bolt and Rihanna as their ambassadors. A mobile strategy for Argentina was added to its global advertising campaign, developed by Optimedia and with Kickads as its mobile partner, which achieved great results and provided some insights on mobile advertising. The afternoon is the “prime time” for mobile, and while 80% of page views are from Android, iOS has the highest CTR.There were three product launch campaigns with targets 100% focused on Branding. They developed a media strategy, creative process as well as formats especially designed for mobile devices, using the full potential of this medium to reach the youth target as is well as to appeal to three senses (visual, auditory and tactile), in order to employ higher levels of segmentation and interaction.At the launch of the evoSPEED SL soccer cleats, Kickads developed a mobile ad based on the concept of “levitation” and managed to highlight the product’s main attribute: it’s the most light-weight soccer cleat the market. The evoSPEED SL soccer cleat ad was on for 14 days as part of a group of quality soccer mobile apps and web mobile apps targeting male soccer/sport lovers older than 18 years of age. This action had 50% engagement (half of those who were exposed to the ad interacted with the piece) and with 15,000 clicks it reached almost 200,000 Argentine males.
