The omni-channel campaign, led by Chicago-based creative agency Highdive Advertising, and directed by Ian Kibbey and Corey Creasey of Terri Timely, consists of multiple :15 and :30 second spots and will include cable TV, connective TV/Video, audio, social media, experiential, custom content, mobile rich media and influencer relations.
“We’re so excited for this partnership with Stella & Chewy’s,” said Mark Gross, CCO and co-founder of Highdive Advertising. “As many of us at Highdive are pet parents or lovers ourselves, we appreciate Stella & Chewy’s commitment to providing pets with healthier, less processed foods. For their first-ever national brand campaign, we knew we had to go bold and candid with these spots to show exactly how raw pets can be — and why we simply love them for it. We thoroughly enjoyed collaborating with the Stella & Chewy’s team to bring this campaign to life and can’t wait for what’s to come.”
The paid media strategy, developed and implemented by the award-winning Exverus Media, employs advanced data and analytics to measure brand awareness, sales performance and online conversions of each media element. The holistic media strategy and approach was designed to rapidly grow household penetration and bring new consumers into Stella & Chewy’s family of growing products of raw dog and cat food and treats.
“Our consumer insight is that pet parents want shared experiences with their pets. So the media placements had to support ‘co-viewing’ opportunities: think Animal Planet and Bravo, pet music playlists on Spotify and pet Reddit communities,” said Tasha Day, VP of Media at Exverus Media.
