Panasonic launches major brand awareness campaign
SECAUCUS, N.J. — Panasonic Corporation of North America has launched a new communication campaign designed to bring attention to the brand's broad scope of products and solutions designed to meet consumer, business-to-business, and industrial needs. The campaign will also underscore Panasonic's global commitment to becoming the electronics industry's leader in green innovation by its 100th anniversary in 2018.
The multi-faceted campaign will showcase a series of print, on-line advertising and TV commercials featuring the theme, "Just another way we're engineering a better world for you." The combined marketing effort, which began July 27, represents Panasonic's highest advertising investment in a sports event in its history. At the center of the campaign are three TV commercials – 30- and 60-second spots -- including an anthemic commercial highlighting the brand's extensive range of products and solutions for consumers and business, as well as a commercial spotlighting Panasonic's comprehensive business solutions and a Smart VIERA HDTV commercial featuring US Women's National Soccer Team player Alex Morgan.
The anthemic commercial will spotlight both products the company is well known for, including Viera flat-panel internet and 3D-enabled TV's, and Toughbook computers, as well as its Lithium Ion batteries to power electric and hybrid vehicles, in-flight entertainment and communications systems and energy-saving solar panel arrays at stadiums and other sports centers. It also profiles an entire planned eco-smart community called Fujisawa Sustainable Smart Town, which Panasonic is developing in Japan to demonstrate a model for sustainable living.
"Surprisingly, even today many people are not aware of the broad scope of the Panasonic products and solutions that touch literally every part of our daily lives," said Betty Noonan, VP marketing and brand management, Panasonic Corporation of North America. "Panasonic's founder, Konosuke Matsushita, was deeply committed to contributing to society and improving people's lives. This is where our long-time brand promise 'Ideas for Life' comes from. The new campaign is designed to complement and be true to that legacy by communicating Panasonic's intention to engineer ways for people to enjoy better and more sustainable lives around the world."
