Rise + Shine wins content marketing budget for Honda Benelux
Rise + Shine beat out eight other agencies to win the Honda Benelux pitch. In the final round, where only Emakina and Duke & Grace remained, Rise + Shine won with an approach that combines all of the Springbok Group's expertise including: strategy, content creation, platform building and performance marketing.
Emotional experiences, data-driven performance
For Jean Durand, Managing Partner of Rise + Shine, winning the Honda pitch is proof that customers see the added value of Springbok Group's broad, integrated approach: "With our specialists in the various agencies, we excel in many communication fields. But we also succeed in bringing them together in the right way. This enabled us to develop customer journeys for Honda that offer strong emotional experiences for the target group, and at the same time, helps Honda realise concrete marketing objectives in a data-driven way. Honda also choose for Salesforce Marketing Cloud and saw our added value as a certified partner. "
One of those objectives is to give Honda back the place it deserves in the minds of consumers.
"Honda is a superbrand," says Kim Verhaeghen, co-CEO of Springbok Group. "It has dominated Cannes for years with its Power Of Dreams campaigns. Even today, the Honda name stands for quality, innovation and top performance. Just think of F1, where Honda engines are the power source of the Red Bull team, among others. In motorbikes, the Honda Goldwing is the reference par excellence. And in lawnmower and outboard engines, the Honda name is also the reference.”
In continuous interaction with the international campaigns, Rise + Shine's content marketing programme will reload the Honda brand in the automotive segment with its unique values. At the same time, the platform will also become a place where people can discover Honda's vision for the future. "People are too little aware that Honda is an important pioneer in a lot of areas," explains Kim Verhaeghen. "Research and development have a prominent place in the brand's philosophy that have for decades resulted in groundbreaking ideas and solutions for the mobility needs of tomorrow, in terms of design, technology and use."
A choice with conviction
Magali Joyeux, Marketing Manager Automobile, is looking forward to the collaboration. "Our choice for Rise + Shine was one with conviction and enthusiasm. The team demonstrated in the pitch that they really understand our brand. Moreover, Rise + Shine's strategy and creation were a perfect match for what we had in mind."
The first results of the collaboration between Honda Benelux and Rise + Shine will be seen in the second half of the year.
