Magazine Cover Wrap Campaigns – Affluent Examples

These two examples below illustrate campaign targeting affluent targets.  The WIRED example targets CXO (affluent) execs for private aircraft, and the Robb Report example illustrates a local auto dealer targeting affluent households in their sales region.  Several dealers have orchestrated similar campaigns, and not always focused on affluent only.  This campaign delivered on-going touch points over the course of 6-months, sharing a gifted magazine subscription with their exact affluent-targeted buyers, and then, cultivated with their co-branded messages, delivered a creative series of bold 4- or 6-page creative units.

The results you get: top-line details ...


No matter what target, the results are very similar in reach, awareness, readership.  Call-to-action scores vary depending on the product/service and target, though a +3% lift to some is big, and others excite over 50%+.

As a real-life example, an automotive client achieved $145MM in sales from a $450K investment.  As a result, they continued their campaigns consecutively for 7+ years, and spent $1MM+ annually, after the initial campaign's sales match results were confirmed by their internal sources.  Their sales match was 16%, direct attribution.  They were targeting affluent business owners for their personal vehicle, as well as their work vehicle/s.


Another example, a very high-end retailer who targeted 3,000 affluent males in the San Francisco Bay area, all within a 5-mile radius of their retail store.  They were specifically focused on custom-made suits, of which their San Francisco location was selling far less than other stores nationwide.  Within 6 months, their sales were back to par with other stores, and the campaign was deemed very successful by clients.

Simple Analogy is the bottom line ... 

Clients target successfully for both retention and/or acquisition objectives, to create the most effective results.  Campaigns include turn-key activation, database development, announcement letter, continuous service, zero-waste and in-market post stats.

What if you could attach your company's brochure to the exterior of a well-known magazine, and reaching only your precise affluent customers and/or prospects (any target) and as a result, 80%+ of your target reads your 'magalog' (vs. 98% in the trash) ... ?  Would that be a valuable investment for your message deliver goals this year? ... (not even counting ROI stats).  If so, let's talk targets/ideas.
