Cloudveil, maker of inspired mountain apparel, has launched a new interactive media campaign for Winter 09 that ties in humorous product offerings with integrated social web initiatives.
The ad campaign, designed by TDA Advertising, of Boulder, takes an honest look at outdoor â€œprioritiesâ€ and supports the old adage â€œbetter to beg forgiveness than ask permission.â€
For a sneak peek, go to www.cloudveil.com/powder.
â€œThis campaign is a true representation of the Cloudveil brand’s sense of humor, and our innate understanding of the active mountain lifestyle,â€ states Founder/President Stephen Sullivan. â€œSometimes being outside comes first, no matter that those choices can land you in the doghouse.”
Synchronizing the print campaign with online fulfillment, customers will be able to actually purchase the three humorous apology gifts from the website through vendor partnerships with 1-800 flowers, Zazzle, and Kool Dog Kafe, and via a social media web application launching October 1st, users will also be able to share these gifts with their friends through social web outlets.
Cloudveil also launched a new website this week, designed to enhance the customer experience and increase engagement. Alongside an increased pixel layout, the site will include new partner links to Altrec, Backcountry.com, KL Sport and Moosejaw, giving customers the ability to purchase products directly from the site, or from one of Cloudveil’s online partners.
â€œThe new site is a significant update,â€ stated Cloudveil Marketing Director Suzie Hultman. â€œNot only is it easier to navigate visually, but also optimized to increase engagement with our loyal customer base both on the website and on social media platforms.â€
Customers will be able to post comments and reviews online easily, to enhance the buying experience, and promote feedback for future product development. A â€œShare Itâ€ option will also be added to each product page, allowing users to post, share, and comment to their friends on Cloudveil product via Facebook and Twitter, among others.
The Cloudveil Winter 2009 product collection also debuts with a slew of new athlete in-field video product reviews and new zoom functionality, allowing users to get up close and personal with the innovative product lineup that includes headliners like the Koven Plus Down Jacket and the FirsTurn softshell. To see the entire line and the new re-designed website, go to www.cloudveil.com.
