AMP Agency Sweeps Marketing Awards in Q1 Awards Season

by

BOSTON, MA – July 22nd, 2016— AMP Agency, a full service  integrated marketing agency specializing in digital and experiential activations, announced its final award acceptance for the Q1 2016 award show season. AMP Agency is honored to have been nominated for 1 MITX award for their work with the LifeStyles/ SKYN brand, and to have won 1 MITX award for their work with L’Oreal’s Garnier brand, as well as 2 Reggie awards, 1 EX award and 1 PRO award.

In partnership with Lifestyles/ SKYN, AMP developed a 360 degree campaign designed specifically for Millennial men through a mix of digital, events, and partnerships. To get into the hearts and minds of the Millennial audience, AMP developed a custom, nationally distributed survey that served as the backbone for the campaign, driving everything from the places the brand showed up in, to the content served, to the time of day the audience saw the message, to the ambassadors who embraced the brand. Through gaining a deep understanding of the audience, SKYN and AMP were able to create a conversation with Millennials in a way that set the brand apart from the competition.

Awards won for this work included:

  • MITX Awards- Finalist- Best Marketing to Millennials Campaign

“On behalf of the entire team at Ansell Healthcare, we are honored to be recognized by MITX for our work connecting with Millennials across both the SKYN and LifeStyles brands,” said Matt Jacobs, GM, AMP Agency. “We’re committed to engaging young people in conversations around sex and sexual wellness – and sometimes that just happens to take the form of a safe sexting emoji keyboard.”

Together, Garnier and AMP executed a campaign with traditional experiential marketing at its core, targeting 18-24 year old Millennials. The campaign,  #GarnierMusic, made a giant splash at the nation’s hottest music festivals, and focused on providing millennials with one of the things they want most during festival season: style. To do this, AMP created the Garnier Salon, a custom-built hair washing and styling activation that had influencer integrations and on-site sampling at five of the nation’s top music festivals. The #GarnierMusic program was named the most popular destination at all festivals it visited, and a “not to miss” by numerous notable blogs and publications, generating over 121M impression over the course of the summer.

Awards won for the #GarnierMusic campaign included:

  • Reggie Silver Award – Best Age-Specific Campaign
  • Reggie Silver Award – Best Experiential Marketing Campaign (Budget Over $1M
  • EX Gold Award – Best Sampling Campaign
  • MITX Award – Winner, Best Marketing to Millennials Campaign
  • PRO Award – Winner, Best Sampling Campaign

“These announcements are especially humbling, as these awards are extremely competitive and this year’s competition was fierce,” says AMP’s CEO, Gary Colen.
