Microsoft Advertising successfully increases brand awareness for Canon EOS Digital Cameras in Singapore Canon, the Japanese imaging and optical products manufacturer, wanted to generate brand awareness for its Electro-Optical System (EOS) range of digital cameras through the use of online media channels. Targeting young adults with an interest in the technology, lifestyle and entertainment space, Canon Singapore worked with Microsoft Advertising to run a series of banner advertisements on the XinMSN homepage and Windows Live Messenger successfully generating over 2.9 million impressions. Objective: With a focus on 18-39 year olds, Canon Singapore looked to improve brand awareness of its EOS range of digital cameras in Singapore by running an online advertising campaign. Canon wanted to emphasise the EOS Camera system as the most complete single lens reflex (SLR) camera system in the world. To establish this, Canon wanted to convey three core brand attributes to potential consumers: 1.Personal fulfilment 2.Strong product performance 3.EOS Community Solution: Canon wanted to be seen at the forefront of technology and innovative ideas. Leading with the tagline ‘Whatever your vision, Canon EOS makes it possible’, Canon developed a range of rich media flash advertisements in the form of an IAB filmstrip, expandable showcase and half banner ad to be shown across a number of MSN properties.
Canon become the first advertiser in Singapore to successfully rollout the IAB filmstrip format from Microsoft Advertising The IAB filmstrip advertisement, which uses multiple advertisement creatives, which are rotated sequentially without imposing on the users online experience, were positioned on Singapore’s popular XinMSN homepage for maximum exposure with the target audience. Simultaneously an expandable showcase creative was then placed on the ‘Technology’, ‘Lifestyle’ and ‘Entertainment’ channels of the portal in order to reach those users visiting the site with a particular interest. Canon Singapore also decided to use the highly popular Windows Live Messenger platform to host flash-based half banners linking to the corporate website http://www.canon.com.sg/eos.http://www.canon.com.sg/eos The campaign ran over a three week period, aimed at users aged between 18-39 with a household income over $4,000 per month. The goal was to establish the EOS Camera system as the most complete single lens reflex (SLR) camera system in the world and create a sense of community between EOS users in Singapore. Canon also ran similar campaigns offline through TV, radio and print to complement the digital marketing efforts. “We were impressed by the number of unique impressions we achieved through Microsoft Advertising.
