Date: November 21, 2012
RALEIGH, N.C. … Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation today announced the company’s power quality division has been honored with a 2012 Eloqua Markie award for the Most Creative Marketing Campaign. Eloqua presented Eaton with the award at the sixth annual Markie Award Ceremony, on Nov. 7, in Orlando, Fla. during Eloqua’s annual user conference, Eloqua Experience.
The Markie Awards recognize exceptional marketing and revenue performance management innovation, vision, and execution. Eaton’s campaign, “Things Have Changed,” was selected from a competitive field of more than 200 submissions across 20 categories.
“Faced with challenges including growing awareness and improving brand perception, Eaton Corporation created a memorable, creative, and impactful marketing campaign,” said Joe Payne, CEO, Eloqua. “Eaton used marketing automation to drive an integrated campaign with elements such as e-mail, social media, direct marketing, and events. The campaign’s creativity and outstanding execution earned Eaton Corporation the 2012 Most Creative Marketing Campaign Markie award from Eloqua.”
The “Things Have Changed” marketing campaign underscores Eaton’s expertise in information technology (IT) and data center solutions while positioning Eaton as a company that “gets IT.” The campaign introduces a new perspective on the modern-day realities of IT power management through the voices of the loyal desk toys of the IT manager, and includes advertising, social media strategy, direct marketing, event components and a campaign website.
“The campaign’s creativity attracted attention, but to maintain that attention it was important to provide solid, supporting content that could be leveraged across all levels of the IT supply chain,” said Kristin Somers, marketing communications manager, Eaton. “Together, all elements of the campaign demonstrate that Eaton recognizes the tireless efforts of the typical IT professional, and can help them take control of their work and lives by empowering them to make the right choices, which will only continue to drive positive results.”
