Think Starbucks: Mini Frappuccino; Coke: personalized cans/bottles; Target: ever-changing musical productions. These are welcomed, friendly brands whose advertising evokes “warm and fuzzy” at first sight or sound. But even ad campaigns have a shelf life (except for one of the longest-running: Wildfire Prevention, 1944–Present, “Only You Can Prevent Forest Fires”). Good marketing never overdoses on past success. Instead, they tweak in relevant ways, hoping to wow the tough crowd with — ahem — acceptable change/s.
Wix.com, a web development platform, knows how to do just that. Their unique knack for creatively telling their story was recently evident in the #ItsThatEasy Super Bowl campaign where five former NFL greats set up their new, “fake” (as credible as they seemed) business careers with Wix.com.
Created in true Wix wit, it was a big success — but there’s more! It looks like Wix.com has done it again. A new campaign has broken only four months later, on Thursday, May 14, with a continuation of the company’s meaningful hashtag, #ItsThatEasy, as part of their new cross-channel marketing campaign designed to go beyond TV audiences.
This time, although it’s still super, “bowl” has been replaced with “model” — a.k.a. Heidi Klum, and fake biz has morphed into square biz!
Funny man Rex Lee, of Entourage fame, is Ms. Klum’s wingman/agent featured in the delightful video. He listens to pitch after bubbly pitch until Ms. Klum reaches pitch perfect with the idea of Heidi-Whities for men.
In tongue and oh, so chic, (and oh-so-not-fair that anyone should have such deliciously long to-die-for legs), gorgeous Ms. Klum, also a judge on America’s Got Talent, displays her own talent. Known for her acumen in the entrepreneurial department, she beautifully exemplifies the endless possibilities of self-expression and creative preferences as she easily builds her business website via wix.com. It includes customer purchasing options at heidi-whities.com, of course.
Clearly Wix.com has made their point. Any business can have free website dazzle with easy-to-build presence at wix.com. That’s what keeping it super is all about!
