Apache is leading the media buying of the consumer division of Olympus cameras and lenses on South and West EMEA areas (6 countries) within the global Olympus brand. We are currently facing two major challenges
- Mirrorless market, it faces resistance to change. The brand is competing with large leading brands such as Canon and Nikon.
- For the hobbyist and lifestyle sector, due to the smartphone effect.
In addition, main marketing plans are decided on their Head Quarters, however they require a deep adaptation to each market. There are no solution that work in the same way at country, action or product level.
Apache teams work hand by in hand with the local Olympus teams to develop different digital actions, adapted to each market reality and giving a local approach to each campaign.
With a deep knowledge of the behavior of each market, an adaptation of messages and creatives has been developed for each campaign, reaching potential Olympus users with the message, the sector and in the appropriate medium to reach potencial Olympus clients.
Variations of actions have been carried out in markets such as West EMEA with a focus on synchronizing pull campaigns with influencer networks. South EMEA however has pivoted to programmatic campaigns supported by 1st party data and specialized media buying.
