Insertion into the Super Bowl

Aflac is an instantly recognizable brand through the use of their iconic duck commercials.

My Special Duck Campaign

 With ProRelevant’s MarketSim technology, we determined that the most important brand imagery attribute for Aflac was corporate social responsibility.  As a result, the company developed a robotic comfort duck for children with cancer. Through this program the company was able to help victims of childhood cancer, enhance its CSR initiatives, and improve its brand  image among millennials. The robotic duck won industry awards for corporate social responsibility.

Financial Services

Building a Marketing Machine

A Fortune 500 company was spinning off one of their key product units under a new brand. The company needed to know if their current marketing  tactics were working, and how they could improve their strategic and tactical marketing.  The CMO wanted to  prove that marketing had a material impact on sales. 

ProRelevant built a Marketing Machine where the brand tracked media investments and measured success as the brand launched.  The company continues to use this model improve their marketing machine over 4 years after the brand launch.  They continue to see sales growth and exceed category growth rates with the help of their marketing machine.
