Seattle, WA – October 21, 2013 PlayNetwork, the leading innovator in branded music and entertainment media experiences, has strengthened its leading Alpha Moms digital out-of-home advertising network with the addition of Justice and Animals Inc. venues across the United States. These additions further solidify the network as one of the most targeted ways brands can reach influential moms as they shop and spend time with their children.
The Alpha Moms network connects with 30 million moms and kids ages 1-14 each month in ideal environments where families are social and receptive to brand messages. Brands such as Disney, Saban Brands, and Stride Rite advertise on the network through integrated campaigns utilizing sponsored TV segments, in-store signage, collateral, samples, digital, social media, mobile, and more.
Justice, the #1 tween girl specialty apparel retailer in the US with 900 locations, and Animals Inc., which represents all 221 AZA accredited zoos and aquariums in the United States, join nine other network partners that include Journeys Kidz, My Gym, and Pump It Up. Combined, the network has more than 4,700 screens and an awareness level of 63%.
“PlayNetwork’s Alpha Moms Network just makes sense for the Justice customer,” said Leslie Armour of Tween Brands. “With our core audience consisting of tween girls and their mothers who have significant spending authority, we can offer substantial value through integrated campaigns executed by PlayNetwork. It’s an opportunity to align ourselves with complementary brands in our space and connect with our customer on a lifestyle level.”
“Over 181 million people visit our accredited zoos and aquariums each year, more than the NBA, MLB, NFL, and NHL combined,” said Steve Kennedy of Animals Inc. “Our venues offer integrated promotional opportunities through video and audio mediums that support the targeted delivery of branded content. The Alpha Moms Network is an ideal place for brands looking to connect with our audience.” “With the addition of the Animals Inc. and Justice we now offer unparalleled access to active moms and their kids in the out-of-home space,” said Steve Lovell Director, Advertising Networks at PlayNetwork. “Brands looking to reach this audience during purchase decision cycles have an outstanding opportunity to target this demographic with our Alpha Moms Network. We look forward to further developing our relationship with these venues and providing an increased level of reach for our clients.”
