Deloitte and BDO launch high-profile ad campaigns

Firms splash out on wide-ranging ad campaigns across the UK

Deloitte and
BDO
Stoy Hayward
have both launched high-profile advertising campaigns
across the UK.

It is rare for firms to invest in mass market advertising in favour of
targeted, face-to-face events. Generally, only when an issue is seen as of
particular importance to a firm will it launch a broad-brush campaign. 

BDO Stoy Hayward campaign pushes the firm’s credentials as a business capable
of advising and auditing FTSE 350 companies. The advertising push follows
intense lobbying from BDO Stoy Hayward on this issue.

On his blog BDO
managing partner Jeremy Newman
said the advertising investment was
part of BDO’s campaign to ‘raise awareness of BDO Stoy Hayward and our
capabilities’.

The campaign will see adverts placed on the front page of the FT
and other newspapers, as well as ‘branded’ taxis and adverts at airports and
stations.

Deloitte, meanwhile, has bought out the entire advertising space around the
top of the London IMAX
Cinema
near Waterloo station.

The wrap-around the top of the cinema will push Deloitte’s ‘360 degrees’
campaign, which will run for six months and feature adverts in print and online
media.

The campaign will focus on building understanding of ‘the breadth and depth’
of Deloitte’s services and ‘the unique position it holds in the marketplace’.

‘We anticipate strong growth over the coming years, and investing in our
brand and building our eminence is going to be important in communicating the
unique offering we provide, both to businesses and to the people that work with
us,’ said Richard Buck,
Deloitte
Partner and head of brand and business development.
