Out-Of-The-Box Advertising Helps Bolster Storytelling

Cisco Webex created its “Work Smarter with Webex” campaign to tell an authentic story of how collaboration tools change the way people work together around the world. The campaign showed how Webex is a platform based on a simple truth: “When we get to know each other and the world around us, we can lean into our best strengths and enable our best thinking to come to life.” 

The campaign, which debuted in June 2019, launched in five U.S. markets, seven international markets and 14 cities. It was first revealed at Cisco’s customer event, which hosted more than 30,000 attendees. Cisco Webex used a variety of “out-of-home” marketing tactics such as hotel key cards, pedicabs, electric cars, traditional airports, billboards and signage locations. The campaign was also promoted via a digital omnichannel strategy that combined paid, owned and organic media, nurture emails and social media.

Because of low awareness and high competition, the company turned to The Mx Group to help it promote the app with a multi-touch campaign.  

To generate awareness and boost app downloads, The Mx Group and Manheim crafted the “Cut the Waste, Keep Your Margins” campaign, which was launched during the week leading up to NADA, the nation’s largest tradeshow for the auto industry. The campaign featured a near take-over of the event, with messaging appearing on everything from building and car wraps to coffee sleeves. Other touch points included:
