Q2-Q3 Media Opps: Havaianas hikes marketing efforts, increases digital, sponsorship activity

Subject: Digital, social media, sponsorship, events

Brand:  USA Inc.

Opportunity: After being named the official flip-flops of Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort last year, Havaianas' marketing efforts have been on the rise. Specifically, digital spend has been the highest its ever been, having more than doubled since last year, per Pathmatics. This year also marks the first time the brand has ever run video display ads. This recent hike in digital is a big change from last year, when Kantar Media reports that print made up the largest portion of Havaianas' budget.

In addition to digital and print, the brand has also relied on sponsorship. For example, it recently partnered with Disney to celebrate its new film "Moana," in which the brand made a special line of flip-flops and will sponsor the world premiere on Nov. 14. Keep in mind that this partnership is the first of its kind for the brand, and will likely only position Havaianas for more like this one in the future. 

 Digital and sponsorship sellers should reach out to start securing deals for 2017. Specifically, look for digital ad dollars tied to Q2, as this is the brand's top buying period. Omnicom's PHD, NY handles media planning and buying.
