This time round, with a Spotify-based content marketing campaign booked by OMD and managed by Pixels, Wyeth Nutrition has taken on the task to make its 'brand soundtrack' available to everyone on any device.
The latest campaign by Wyeth Nutrition's Illuma brand is aimed at "unleashing children’s potential with music", according to the press release.
While this sounds like a PR spin, Wyeth took the extra step of asking Bettina Wan (a music therapist registered in Australia) to curate the five playlists for Illuma from Spotify's music library of more than 30 million songs.
Wan's research, said the release, has found that a music-rich experience for children from an early age can "carry serious benefits" as they progress through their childhood.
According to Kevin Huang, CEO of Pixels, the recent 2015 Hong Kong Advertiser’s Association adspend report saw 80 per cent of local marketers ranking content marketing as the hottest trend.
"Music has been universally used for a long time as for child development," said Chung in an interview. "Also, the digital environment is an organic one for Hong Kong parents. They are already relying on digital from an information-seeking perspective to share tips on raising these small human beings."
Wyeth, he added, will continue to invest in content marketing. "Illuma is positioned not just as a product, but a partner for parents with music as a tool."
This strategy also ties in with Wyeth’s overall brand goal of helping parents as well as their children. For example, the integration with Spotify makes the music accessible anytime anywhere. "We understand the content provided must be useful for a parent and child."
The Illuma launch campaign is supported by ad placements on Spotify using formats like homepage takeover, display and audio ads. Facebook paid posts, EDMs and search marketing will drive traffic to the Spotify branded playlist.
