SPH Is On!

Fizz, Brew and UltraFresh – Three cross-media packages from SPH to cater to advertisers´ diverse needs

Singapore, 11 Dec 2008 - Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) has put together three cross-media packages for advertisers to reach their target audience across a variety of media platforms, including print and online advertising.

Created by SPH’s Strategic Marketing Department, these packages will allow advertisers to pick a pre-determined basket of media owned by SPH, and select one which will best reach out to their target segments.

Across Singapore´s ever-increasingly dynamic advertising scene, media buying is not as straight forward as it used to be. The savvy advertiser is now constantly on the lookout for multi-touchpoint media solutions to address their communication needs.

Besides being the market leader in print advertising, SPH is a multi-media powerhouse with a large array of media platforms in its arsenal. With this strategic advantage, SPH is able to offer advertisers cross-media marketing solutions from print, radio, online including Internet TV, mobile and even outdoor. SPH has also recently ventured into the exhibition market through its subsidiary Sphere Exhibits Pte Ltd.

SPH Is On! is the name of the current campaign which highlights the multiplier effect and impact advertisers will get to enjoy when they buy any one of the three 3-in-1 integrated advertising packages which feature best-in-class media, such as:

  • On Print – SPH publishes 17 newspaper titles and more than 100 magazines titles.

  • On-the-Go – SPH´s mobile platforms include ZapCode, Location-Based Services (sms push), Rednano Mobile, and more.

  • On Air – SPH runs two radio stations, Chinese station Radio 100.3FM & English station Radio 91.3FM.

  • On-the-Ground – Event and exhibition management services are offered by SPH´s subsidiaries Sphere Exhibits and SPH MediaBoxOffice Pte Ltd´s (SPHMBO) events arm.

  • Online – SPH´s extensive array of online platforms include news portal AsiaOne, e-marketplace ST701, citizen journalism portal STOMP, and The Straits Times Razor TV, a new Internet TV by SPH.

  • On Screen – Refers to SPHMBO´s network of more than 500 digital screens, including 5 large outdoor LED screens.

The packages have been strategically put together to help advertisers maximise their reach of three distinct target groups:

  • Fizz Package – For advertisers who want to reach out to YOUTHS:

    The New Paper (On Print), STOMP (Online) and location-based sms at youth zones (On-the-Go)

  • Brew Package – For advertisers whose target audience are PMEBs

  • UltraFresh Package – For advertisers targeting HEARTLANDERS:

Mr Leslie Fong, SPH´s Senior Executive Vice-President for Marketing, said: “SPH is always on the lookout for ways to serve our advertisers better. With this latest offering, they will be able to zero in on the exact target groups they wish to reach, do it across different media and enjoy cost efficiencies."

As an incentive, advertisers who invest in one or more of these packages for campaigns scheduled between January and March 2009 will enjoy attractive discounts.

Mr Fong added: "This is also part of our way to help advertisers keep marketing costs manageable and cost-efficient in light of the current economic climate. At the same time, SPH is helping them to maximise the benefits from utilising the targeted marketing tools that we offer."
