Juno Launches Major Branding Campaign and 'Everybody's Getting It'
Business Wire - July 09, 1999 17:09
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 9, 1999--Juno Online Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: JWEB) today announced the launch of a major new brand advertising campaign--its largest ever, and the company's first in more than two years. Called "Everybody's Getting It," the campaign was conceived and designed by DDB Worldwide in New York, and reflects the history of intense pass-along activity that has helped Juno grow into one of the largest Internet audiences. Juno provides Internet-related services to millions of people throughout the United States, many of whom were first introduced to Juno by a friend or relative.

The new campaign, which began early last month, includes television, radio, and outdoor advertising. Total billings for 1999 are estimated to be in excess of $25 million. DDB, which was awarded the Juno account in December 1998, is responsible for Juno's external marketing communications including advertising, interactive marketing, and direct marketing.

"Extensive consumer research showed us that many potential Internet users suffer from something we call 'connection paralysis,'" said Patrick O'Hare, group planning director at DDB New York. "People want to go online, but they don't know how, or they're afraid to take the first step. Juno makes that first step unusually easy, and has already done so for millions of people. That's the key fact the campaign was designed to communicate."

"People look to other people they trust when deciding which Internet service to choose," said Steve Landsberg, co-chief creative officer at DDB New York. "The message in the 'Everybody's Getting It' ads that 'Doug gave it to Madeline' and 'Jeff gave it to his mom' and 'Dr. Marsh gave it to his patients' is a tongue-in-cheek way of letting people know Juno members like the service enough not only to use it themselves, but also to recommend it to friends and family."

"Ever since the service was launched, Juno has benefited hugely from word-of-mouth," said Bob Cherins, executive vice president of sales and marketing for Juno. "Our members are very vocal in expressing their positive feelings about the service: they tell their friends and family that Juno is simple to use, reliable, and uniquely user-friendly. This is exactly the message we are now spreading to a wider audience, through advertising on television, on radio, and through other media."
