The “Readly for the Reader” campaign - creatives that will elevate French editorial
To create buzz for the European category leader, and introduce users to the new service, Readly has teamed up with event agency UNEXPECTED to do a series of guerilla PR and marketing activities. Based on data and analysis of French readers and their habits, the campaign aims to highlight the diverse needs, for example the need to be informed, creative and inspired, as well as the value and consumption of content in France. The insights include that 48% of French consumers read to learn and educate themselves and 33% read to keep updated and informed.
A number of street marketing and PR activations are planned over the coming months, inviting French subscribers to explore what type of reader they are and to connect with the content on the platform. The campaign starts with four activations going live in the first stage of the consumer launch;
