To mark the transition to its new customer facing brand, Ford Retail, the world’s largest dedicated Ford dealership group, has launched a major marketing campaign that includes online, print, outdoor and radio advertising, PR and social media engagement.
The new customer facing name, TrustFord, reflects the company’s philosophy of excellent customer service and transparency; traits that have always been at the very heart of the business and which have been instrumental in informing the new identity.
The TrustFord advertising campaign, created by branding agency Good,@thisisgoodnews which also handled the rebrand, features colleagues from the company’s national network of 65 dealership sites, including a Sales Executive, a General Manager and a Technician.
The ‘Be A Great Westerner’ campaign will run across the South West including activity in London, Bristol, Bath, Cardiff, Swansea, Devon and Cornwall.
The 10 week campaign launches with a four page wrap of the London Metro as well as full page ads across the network. The campaign aims to inspire customers to ‘Be A Great Westerner’ with activity across OOH, radio, TV, digital, newspaper and paid search.
The campaign includes a media first, through a partnership with the Evening Standard/London Live. The partnership will launch on 3 June with a four page pullout, promotions across bill posters and an additional print run of 20,000 to be distributed across all trains leaving Paddington. [more…]
