Marketing Strategy with Vivo

With the famous names included in its Vivo Family, Vivo has a surefire spot in positive brand presence. They have dominated the smartphone limelight for some time now and with the impressive names in the Vivo Family, the brand should very well expect a meteoric rise to greater heights. As such, Vivo leveraged on this benefit by launching several events involving their endorsers.

Kisses Delavin

One of the most successful is Popssss, an online music program that is part of the roster of shows of ABS-CBN’s One Music PH. Popssss, powered by Vivo Philippines, featured fresh and seasoned talents in the local music scene. Popssss, which launched in February of 2017, featured former child star and now soap opera star and recording artist Alexa Ilacad in its successful pilot episode with Vivo endorser Inigo Pascual hosting the program.

Another one of the biggest collaboration work Vivo Philippines entered into was the Mega Fashion Week in October 2017 with Mega Magazine. As co-sponsor of the event, Vivo bagged the spotlight for some of its brand endorsers in the glitzy fashion affair. Part of the pre-event gala of the Mega Fashion Week was Verniece Enciso, fashion and lifestyle blogger.

At the launch night, Vivo as co-sponsor presented a MEGA Fashion Film on Vivo Family headliner and Mega Magazine cover girl Kathryn Bernardo. The trendy opening party, with the biggest names in the fashion industry in attendance, plus a reunion of the MakingMEGA stars will all be captured using no less than the Vivo V7+ clearer-selfie, perfect shot smartphone. At the Fashion Show event in October 28, Vivo endorser Kisses Delavin graced the MEGA Fashion Week catwalk.

McCoy De Leon answered “kilig” questions “fished” from a fish bowl to the delight of fans which garnered 76,000 views to date.
