Pairing Campus Advertising and Experiential

As an award-winning experiential marketing agency, Newbridge also pairs campus advertising with customized, high-impact live marketing programs for some of the nation’s biggest and hottest brands—among them, Apple, Chevrolet, HBO, L.L.Bean, DirecTV, Microsoft and Verizon.

Take the campaign we developed for Verizon FiOS at colleges in the Northeast. To hit every key touchpoint, we began with email blasts to new and returning students and ads on campus bookstore websites, and included signage at high-traffic locations, collateral distribution inside campus bookstores, a brand ambassador program, and broadcast spots on colleges’ in-house TV network.
