Develop a campaign that owns the nitrogen stabiliser space via ENTEC, targeting the 4,000 sugar cane farms and auxiliary services that influence the industry.
Objectives included building the perception of IPF as authentic and farmer-focused, increasing the sales of ENTEC in Queensland and bolstering IPF’s grower database.
Speak to cane growers through a topic they all know and love – rugby league. We paralleled the staying power of ENTEC with unbreakable defence in a league game. This was the perfect match for our audience, with 73% of them avid game viewers. It allowed us to demonstrate the top-line benefits of the product in an engaging way, while avoiding getting into the details of a very technical product.
The media reflected the audience’s passion for league, with our hero 30-second TV spot being played through State of Origin and other big match-ups throughout the season. Other executions included radio, print and point of sale. A free rugby league ball was included as a sales incentive for all ENTEC purchases.
