Sponsorship of an editorial feature 'a Portfolio' - exploring one subject in depth over 10 pages. Featured e.g. Women & Careers.
The client was looking for a way to communicate with readers over and above advertorial pages. They wanted a creative idea that ensured they engaged with readers and worked in partnership with editorial by focusing in depth on one topic that concerned our readers - in this case women and careers. Other subjects that would be key for Portfolios include, anti-ageing, self-esteem, travel, fashion and communications.
To raise awareness of Nivea amongst the readership in a unique way.
To work closely with Psychologies editorial to create compelling and engaging content for readers.
To promote Nivea beauty products to readers in an editorial environment
Unique 10 page feature written by Psychologies editorial in a format that reflects editorial style. By approaching beauty in a different way, Nivea was associated with a fresh and imaginative feature. To increase interactivity with readers, Psychologies reader panel were asked to fill out an online questionnaire and results provided key insights into the views of the audience and the information was used to support the feature. Editorial provided up to the minute research giving the feature sincerity and authority.
The Nivea client's testimonial says it all - "We were really impressed with the thought and creativity that went into both proposals and were equally happy to see the results look even better than we had imagined. Strong, but subtly integrated branding and most importantly for us, a totally editorial feel that was a close fit with rest of the content of the publication." Luci McQuitty, Senior Press Officer, Beiersdorf UK Ltd
