  17. 17. BlogHer Coverage: Mommy Got Swag “ This month I happened to meet the PUR team at BlogHer 10 in New York City and they gave me a PUR water filtration system to test out that attached directly to my sink. PUR was an amazing partner at BlogHer, supplying clean drinking water stations all around and their amazingly generous donation of clean drinking water packets to underdeveloped countries.” Double click to view
  18. 18. BlogHer Coverage: Totally Her “ I put up with the Brita pitcher for a while but began asking for recommendations on a better option. I switched to PUR. Right away it was clear that PUR is the superior brand. I’ve been much happier with my PUR water filtration pitcher and will be sticking with it long term.”
  19. 19. BlogHer Coverage: Pineapple Babble “ I had an extensive conversation with the rep from PUR. She was very kind – even when I told her I couldn’t stand on-the-faucet filters because for whatever reason they have NEVER worked for me. Guess what? IT WORKED. It’s easy, it clips off so I can wash my dishes. The water tastes REALLY clean and the filters last 3 months!”
  20. 20. Sustaining Coverage: National Coffee Day <ul><li>DVPR leveraged National Coffee Day on September 29 th as a new opportunity to engage bloggers in the water conversation </li></ul><ul><li>Using PUR key messaging, bloggers were informed that the freshest cup of coffee starts with great tasting, clean drinking water </li></ul><ul><li>Many bloggers eagerly: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Reviewed the PUR one-click faucet mount, posting about the easy installation process </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hosted a reader giveaway contest, asking readers to comment on their thoughts regarding the importance of filtered water </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Posted about the improved taste of their coffee after using a PUR water filtration system </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Encouraged readers to “like” PUR on Facebook </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>and linked to the PUR website </li></ul></ul>
  21. 21. <ul><li>National Coffee Day coverage alone has generated more than 70K media impressions to date </li></ul>Sustaining Coverage: National Coffee Day “ Living on Long Island, I have always been scared of the water since the rumors are that the very high breast cancer rate here comes from drinking the water. (who knows but better safe than sorry right?) Therefore, I have been using a PUR filter on our faucet for the last few years.” “ The PUR One Click Faucet Mount is an easy way to remove 99% of lead, trace levels of pharmaceuticals and microbial cysts. In addition to great coffee, this is a feature that is important to me for my family. My three girls deserve the cleanest best tasting water.” “ How to make the best cup of coffee: Always use cold fresh, clean water.  Using filtered water is best.  The PUR one-click faucet mount makes getting clean water right from your tap and into your coffee cup a breeze!”
  22. 22. Sustaining Coverage : Blog Action Day <ul><li>On Friday, October 15th thousands of bloggers from around the world came together to discuss a broad range of water issues, from river conservation to the water crisis in Africa </li></ul><ul><li>DVPR reached out to new BlogHer contacts as well as our database of influential bloggers to encourage them to voice their thoughts on water quality on Blog Action Day </li></ul>
  23. 23. Sustaining Coverage: Blog Action Day “ PUR’s YouTube videos, describe the urgent need for clean drinking water and the daily efforts PUR makes. Though many think we are too far from the developing world to lend a helping hand, there are several ways we can improve the situation.” “ PUR siempre dona 10 litros de agua limpia por cada nuevo fan de su página de Facebook, pero por Blog Action Day ha decidido doblar esta cantidad.” Translation: “PUR always donates 10 liters of clean drinking water for each new Facebook Fan; however, the donation will be doubled for Blog Action Day.” “ They only time I feel helpless, is when I'm without water (try an hour to an entire day without water when a storm hits in Puerto Rico when you're there on vacation). And I'm never without it for that long. I cannot imagine not having access to clean water.  The message was crystal clear when I saw the PUR water demonstration at BlogHer. It had me floored. I was amazed at the ability to bring clean water to places, countries, and people that do not have that luxury with a small packet. How's that for trying ?
  24. 24. Next Steps <ul><li>Continue to forge new relationships with bloggers who opted-in at BlogHer and drive content development around PUR – as well, continue building current blogger relationships </li></ul><ul><li>Look for moments-in-time, such as the recent National Coffee Day and Blog Action Day, to rally immediate and relevant PUR content </li></ul><ul><li>Report ongoing coverage within the Weekly Media Summary </li></ul>
  25. 25. Key Wins <ul><li>One-Click FM: Overall, the one-click message we sought out to deliver was well-received. The bloggers were thrilled with the ability to easily install and remove the device. Although many asked if this now allowed the device to work on a pull-out faucet, they were clear that this was something that their readers would nevertheless find interesting. </li></ul><ul><li>PUR Flavor Options: It was surprising that three years after launch, many bloggers still did not know about this product.  They were very pleased with the ease, taste and nutritional benefit of the product and asked many questions.  This product remains a discussion opportunity for the brand and may be a great way into other conversations with interested bloggers. </li></ul>
  26. 26. Key Wins <ul><li>Contaminant Removal:  With Filtrete only a few booths away, we talked to bloggers extensively about the need for certification and the value of having larger numbers of certified contaminants.  Most did not know about the quality of removal claims on FMs and the extra gallons that were being filtered versus the leading pitcher. </li></ul><ul><li>PUR Water Stations:  The stations were a high-profile and unique branding opportunity for PUR that really resonated with attendees. Additionally, as the water bottles continue to be used post-BlogHer, they can reinforce the PUR connection with bloggers even after the show. </li></ul>
  27. 27. Opportunities <ul><li>Scale vs. Brand Sponsorship: While the P&G scale sponsorship made it possible for PUR to participate at BlogHer in a highly visible way at a reduced cost, there was less control over the activation – signage, demo location, design, etc. were planned and implemented by the P&G scale team </li></ul><ul><ul><li>It may be worth the investment for PUR to own a brand-only sponsorship for more control over execution during future blogger events </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Amplification: To maximize future blogger sponsorships, DVPR recommends creating a PUR “Blogger Brigade,” in which members could help advocate and drive traffic to PUR’s event activation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Blogger Brigade members can also help maintain momentum throughout the year with their thousands of loyal readers/followers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Beyond events, Blogger Brigade relationships can help strengthen yearlong ER efforts and extend the reach of PUR content or coverage from traditional media outlets </li></ul></ul>
  28. 28. Looking Ahead
  29. 29. Looking Ahead to 11/12 and Beyond <ul><li>Organic and DVPR are continuing to develop PUR’s official social engagement strategy in lock-step with a new brand strategy </li></ul><ul><li>During initial social engagement strategy development sessions, two ER tactics have continuously risen to the top as necessary activities in order for PUR to engage with Prime Prospect users: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>PUR Blogger Brigade </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ Making it Right” Social Media Outreach </li></ul></ul>
  30. 30. PUR Blogger Brigade <ul><ul><ul><li>Enlist a dedicated group of PUR social media influencers to: </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Represent PUR within conversations/forums where the Brand cannot speak for itself </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Educate readers/followers about why they should care about filtering their tap water </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Engage readers in relevant conversations and incentivize them to spread the word </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Push out traditional coverage for further reach and impact </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
