Nordic lifestyle and mainstream PR campaign

Denon HEOS is a wireless music system that allows users to control music effortlessly from anywhere in the home. Denon’s award-winning multi-room speakers were previously sold under HEOS as a sub-brand, but with all Denon products now offering HEOS built-in, the company decided to shift HEOS to a technology rather than its own brand.


Spotlight Denon Home as the go-to brand in the Nordic multi-room speaker landscape

The core goal of the campaign was to deliver awareness of the Denon Home 150, Home 250, and Home 350 multi-room speakers across a wide media landscape. This included core hi-fi media, but also consumer electronics and lifestyle media, and other publications catering to families looking for high-quality, easy-to-use home audio products.

We planned, managed, and executed a three-month Nordic PR campaign that maintained a strong presence in core hi-fi and consumer tech publications, but focused heavily on conquering mindshare in the mass-market lifestyle and mainstream media.


A highly granular PR strategy tailored to each country and to each type of media

We embarked on a wide-ranging communication strategy, including a Stockholm-based press event, localized press releases for each country, and direct pitching efforts. However, given the broad range of publications we were required to target, digitalPR employed an innovative, tailored approach that focused on the needs of the different media.

For example, while product reviews were a key strategy for technology and hi-fi publications, lifestyle and consumer publications in the Nordic regions required a different approach. Thanks to our journalistic experience and close relationships with media, we were able to successfully pitch feature articles, gift guides and other editorial pieces in publications where review opportunities were not available.

Conveying the core benefits of Denon Home products also required a similarly tactical approach. For example, while tech publications require a detailed understanding of specifications, consumer and lifestyle publications were more focused on benefits. These included the stylish design, water- and stain-resistant fabrics, which allow for greater flexibility of placement in modern homes, and the elegant touch panel, making it possible to play music without needing to use a smartphone.

By understanding the needs of the media, we were able to ensure that the key messages and benefits of the products were included in the coverage. This strategy was only possible because of digitalPR’s wide-ranging knowledge of the whole media landscape, coupled with our in-house journalistic expertise.


Campaign in numbers

Overall, digital PR succeeded in raising awareness of Denon Home amongst a wide consumer audience base, ensuring the brand was front-of-mind in families looking to invest in multi-room audio.

Over the course of the three-month campaign, digitalPR secured more than 146 press clippings, including eighty-two reviews or product placements. Over half of the placements were in media categories such as lifestyle, interior design, DIY, local newspapers, and national dailies. The coverage we achieved was unanimously positive.
