CINCINNATI—On June 19, 2013 in New York City, Procter & Gamble (P&G) launched an event that will share the power and meaning of its brands as part of its new campaign, The Everyday Effect.
Through what it is calling the largest consumer event in its 175-year history, P&G will serve the daily needs of New Yorkers and demonstrate how P&G products make everyday life better. The results will be broadcast to the rest of the country, live, through on-the-ground reports, social media updates and content featured across PGEveryday.com/EverydayEffect, Twitter (#EverydayEffect) and Facebook.com/PGEveryday.
P&G brands participating in the #EverydayEffect Live From New York event include Cover Girl, Gillette, Duracell, Pampers, Old Spice, Febreze and Crest. More than 40,000 products representing 25 P&G brands have been distributed throughout Manhattan at the moments people need them most, including Scope mouthwash for coffee drinkers, Febreze car vent clips for taxis and Iams dog treats for pet lovers. These city-wide events will enable people to directly experience the everyday effect, benefits and superiority of P&G products, including:
“We’re making a deliberate effort to demonstrate to consumers how our brands improve their everyday life in small yet meaningful ways,” says P&G North America Group president Melanie Healey, P&G North America Group President.
She continues: “Regardless of a person’s unique challenge or need, P&G products provide daily benefits that improve quality of life – whether it’s helping newborns and their parents get a good night’s sleep or getting college students ready for life away from home, or simply getting that boost of confidence because of a clean shave, beautiful skin or a beautiful white smile. By providing innovative solutions to the challenges and needs faced in everyday life, P&G brands can help consumers in so many different but important ways. That’s what we call the P&G ‘Everyday Effect’.”
The New York event is part of a series of activities, programming and social media videos supporting the roll out of P&G’s Everyday Effect campaign.
Activities taking shape around the world include consumer events, retail partnerships, in-store displays and brand-focused ‘experiment’ videos showcasing the everyday effect of using P&G products. Social media assets will be distributed and available across P&G social media channels in the U.S., Japan, China, Mexico, Germany and Brazil.
“For more than 175 years P&G has been innovating for the seemingly ordinary and we can’t wait to demonstrate the true power of P&G products on the streets of Manhattan,” adds Jodi Allen, P&G’s vice-president of North America marketing and brand operations. “Those outside New York will also have the ability to experience the superiority and benefits of P&G products through social media opportunities on June 19.”
To support The #Everyday Effect Live event in New York, followers of the @PGEveryday Twitter handle have random opportunities on June 19 to win $100 worth of product from the P&G eStore.
