WORLD ONLINE APPOINT PROPAGANDA FOR UK B2B ACCOUNT Wednesday 31 January 2001 PDF Print Marketing strategists Propaganda continue to go from strength to strength as they announce a seven figure account win for the business services division of ISP World Online UK. The Northern-based agency, which only recently relaunched into the strategic market from a design-led background, is responsible for the UK B2B account worth, initially, up to £1.8million. Work is already underway for a major campaign to be unveiled later this year, positioning the World Online business brand. The account also includes development of separate branding strategies for five key product areas of World Online’s business. Propaganda is ultimately aiming to position World Online as an innovative and thought-provoking brand, appealing to those involved in e-media and online technologies as the sector continues to expand. Steve Dixon, Propaganda’s Creative Director, said: "It’s a major win and we’re delighted to be working on such a high profile account, one that allows us to explore both online and traditional marketing strategies." "We are focusing on World Online’s B2B branding, researching and pre-testing to find a key insight and the all important point of differentiation. It’s a complex and volatile market but if we can strip away the unimportant and concentrate on a clear single-minded positioning, we’ll help World Online to achieve its business goals. " "It’s about understanding a client’s business needs," says Andy Matko, World Online Business Marketing Director. "We work hard to understand our customers’ needs and we chose an agency that showed could communicate our proposition most clearly to our customers."
