When Lithonia Lighting – the industry leader in standard commercial and architectural lighting – launched its first volumetric LED system, it represented a dramatic shift and opportunity for the company to lead the marketplace into the smart lighting industry.
Sweeney strategized and executed a yearlong brand and product launch campaign integrating advertising, publicity, trade show marketing, email marketing, social media and speaking opportunities. Beyond the 5 million trade media impressions and 50,000 website visits generated, Lithonia Lighting quickly became recognized as the “go to” expert in the lighting industry for commercial smart lighting.
Juno® was entering the smart home tech market with an innovative family of smart downlights featuring speakers and Alexa built-in. It was the company’s first true tech product targeting consumers and home builders.
Sweeney launched Juno AI Speaker Light at the Consumer Electronics Show in January and the International Builders Show in February with a comprehensive integrated marketing campaign that secured 54 million earned media impressions, 80,000+ video views, 1 million paid impressions, 24,000 website pageviews, 150,000 social media impressions and 350,000 influencer impressions.
Enlighted, a Siemen’s company, provides the world’s most advanced smart building platform, launched two new sensor products designed to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and similar diseases in the workplace.
Sweeney made an immediate shift to the company’s launch strategy, evolved its messaging and executed a fully integrated marketing campaign for the new products – social listening, earned media, podcasts, social media, awards, speaking opportunities – resulting in over 2 billion impressions.
LSI Industries, a leading player in the lighting, controls and graphic solutions industries, planned the introduction of its newest integrated technology solution – SmartVision. The new business unit brought IoT and connectivity expertise to the retail marketplace. But the brand needed an identity and a portfolio of marketing and sales content to support brand building and sales.
Sweeney created a SmartVision brand identity and campaign designed to capture the attention of the marketplace. Within three months, the new logo and messaging was unveiled through signage, video, brochures, a new website and promotional items at the National Association of Convenience Stores trade show in Las Vegas.
