Recognized as one of the fastest growing global brands, Samsung Electronics is a leading producer of digital TVs, memory chips, mobile phones, TFT-LCDs, printers and more. Samsung has a wealth of leading digital products across multiple categories and wanted to leverage that breadth in its campaign promoting leadership in digital convergence. CNET was up for the challenge to create a unique solution that would dynamically showcase Samsung 9s multiple products across many categories, while also contributing to significant sales leads growth.
Samsung worked with CNET to build The SamsungStore to consolidate multiple category and product messaging to further extend its brand. The SamsungStore is a branded product environment showcasing Samsung 9s breadth of products across multiple categories and segments. The program included key integration points, such as front-door take-overs, ad units, and integrated button placements used to drive shoppers to The SamsungStore to search through reviews, pricing, offerings, and accessories.
This kind of integration enabled Samsung to present products in an exclusive environment that reinforces its brand positioning, strongly aligns the brand with CNET 9s editorial voice, and provide more relevant context to its product listings.
