Spring/Summer Media Opps: Lowe's begins media review, creative review to follow?
Subject: digital, TV, social media, mobile, omni-channel
The review is being handled by R3 and is reportedly in its early stages. While the review does not encompass creative, agency readers should keep in mind that creative and media were consolidated around the same time in 2005 - which could signal a creative review is on the horizon. Omnicom's BBDO currently handles Lowe's creative account.
Sellers - Lowe's has been ardently reaching out to millennials as of late - utilizing Facebook mobile video, Snapchat and other social platforms to push a series of videos targeted to first-time homebuyers. Therefore, keep social media and video extensions in mind when going after revenue, but don't forget tried-and-true channels such as digital and TV.
Note that Lowe's spends all year, but its highest spend period is Q2 - home improvement/home buying season. We'll keep you updated on the status of the media review so you can get in good with the new shop to secure spring/summer 2017 dollars.
