CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EGO, the leading manufacturer of battery-powered outdoor power equipment, today announced the launch of a new integrated advertising campaign for its revolutionary line of patented Arc Lithium™ battery-powered snow blowers. The new campaign touts the superior strength and reliability of EGO Power+ Snow Blowers through sweeping footage of the product blowing snow under the most extreme weather conditions imaginable: Antarctica.
Breaking through the Category with a Battery-powered Snow Blower
“There are so many hassles with gas powered equipment, especially snow blowers but until now, consumers were never presented with a serious alternative. Failure to start, regular maintenance and pulling a cord over and over have simply been accepted, even when buying from a premium brand,” said Joe Turoff, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Chervon, EGO’s parent company. “We’re constantly thinking from the consumer’s perspective and working to address category challenges in new and unique ways. The problem we face is convincing consumers that EGO’s battery powered products actually have the power and performance of gas without the noise, fuss and fumes and are perfect for you, no matter what state you live in,” Turoff added.
“Antarctica”: Proving Ego’s brand promise of “Power Beyond Belief”
EGO’s new advertising campaign aims to convince consumers that the 56 Volt Lithium battery-operated EGO Power+ Snow Blower is a better alternative to gas snow blowers because it starts the first time, every time, anywhere in the world—without sacrificing power.
“EGO’s brand promise is ‘Power Beyond Belief.’ Rather than simply telling consumers about the product benefits, our goal was to prove it, showing the snow blower in action in the coldest, windiest, most hostile environment on Earth: Antarctica,” said Vinny Warren, Executive Creative Director, The Escape Pod.
Authenticity was a key aspect of the campaign, so demonstrating the snow blower performing with ease in -30 degree temperatures and extreme weather conditions was a powerful proof point for the product’s efficacy.
“A lot of brands talk big, but what it comes down to is what real consumers experience when they bring the product home. What I love about the campaign is that it shows our product in a real situation that's so insanely extreme. The notion that this works in Antarctica should allow consumers to get over their misconceptions and be inspired by a product that is designed so well, they gain the confidence that it won’t let them down when they need it most,” said Joe Turoff.
The integrated campaign includes broadcast, digital, social, experiential and collateral elements.
The EGO product line includes lawnmowers, trimmers, blowers and chainsaws that all use a patented Arc Lithium™ battery technology compatible across the line to deliver long-lasting, quick-charging, clean-energy power. EGO Power+ equipment is available exclusively at The Home Depot.
