LOS ANGELES, Feb. 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Hawthorne, the leader in accountable and analytics driven advertising, announced today it received two nominations from DMN, the leading provider of digital and data-driven marketing analysis, research, and content. CEO Jessica Hawthorne-Castro was honored as a 2017 "Woman to Watch" for the "Marketing Hall of Femme." In addition, Hawthorne earned a finalist award for the "Consumer" category for its creative campaign for Dexcom. The "Women to Watch" list includes the best and brightest female talent in the marketing industry. The Marketing Hall of Femme event on April 26, 2017 features a Summit & Awards Program, where attendees can meet the 2017 Breakthrough Women.
"I'm honored to receive this personal award from DMN which recognizes the great strides female executives are making in our industry," said Hawthorne-Castro. "I encourage women to take on leadership roles and I enjoy being a mentor to help foster personal and professional growth. I'm proud of the growth at Hawthorne as we've transitioned to a tech-focused agency that relies on accountability and analytics to provide our clients with measurable results."
The DMN Awards (previously the Marketing&Tech Innovation Awards), honors digital-savvy campaigns, from ace marketing tech platforms, and from the superstar individuals finding ways to shine in this complex, ever-changing marketing landscape. Award winners for the 2017 DMN Awards will be announced in New York City on March 1st, 2017 preceding the DMN Connect event.
Hawthorne's Dexcom campaign centered on promotion of the Dexcom G5® Mobile, an innovative Type 1 diabetes monitoring device. Hawthorne was tasked with generating broader awareness of the device among diabetes patients, the medical care community, and caregivers. After review of medical literature and Dexcom's social media engagement, Hawthorne concluded a targeted strategy towards the family members of diabetes sufferers was the right approach.
Hawthorne identified Dexcom brand evangelists through review of social media channels, and developed video creative showcasing these individuals' style and passion for the product benefits. Hawthorne utilized a :60 spot for television to establish Dexcom's credibility with the medical care community and to strengthen brand recognition with the social users. This was paired with :15 and :30 digital video spots. The campaign improved Dexcom's average daily qualified leads by nearly 75% and markedly increased web traffic metrics.
"Our Dexcom campaign is a great example of our data-driven approach," said Chief Creative Officer, John Pucci. "We looked at medical data and social media engagement on the front end of the campaign, and then carefully reviewed website and conversion metrics on the back end. The campaigns leveraged user testimonials set against a clean white background, so the messaging could focus on the real-world benefits of the product. I'm proud of the team for achieving a finalist award and look forward to the DMN awards on March 1st."
