OOH: The ever-evolving medium with staying power
by Annette Bourdeau
Fairway puts your ad in their hands

Does your target group frequent cafés while going about their daily lives? You may want to enlist the services of Fairway Media Sales. The company provides branded coffee sleeves to a targeted network of independent and micro-chain cafes across the country.

“We can put your message in front of your target for 30 minutes or more with no competition,” says Nancy Green, Fairway’s president. Fairway can even attach samples to coffee sleeves, like mints, gum or shampoo. The sleeves are clean and small, so consumers can remove them and take them home to refer to later. Thermo ink applications reveal the message when hot liquid fills the cup.

Fairway hand-delivers the coffee sleeves to its network of cafes across the country. “We have one-on-one relationships with the cafes,” says Green. “They become brand ambassadors for your product.”

Beyond Billboards

Putting ads on everything from hot-drink cups to escalator handrails, OOH marketers find that mundane surfaces can have a major impact

Retailers are always looking for new ways to create buzz for store openings. This summer, beauty retailer Sephora did just that to promote the opening of two new locations, one in Vancouver and another in Coquitlam, B.C.

Sephora, through alternative outdoor media firm Fairway Media Sales, partnered with 61 cafés in the areas surrounding the new stores. When customers ordered a hot drink at the grand opening and for six weeks after, they received a message with–or rather, on–their coffee cup.

Second City's coffee sleeve-vertising buzz
by Melita Kuburas

After Erin Peirce, Second City sales and marketing manager, noticed a colleague's coffee sleeve promoting a local theatre in Toronto one morning, she found Fairway Media Sales, a Toronto and Vancouver-based alternative OOH company that works with local shops to place brands on coffee sleeves.

Currently, Second City is in the midst of a branding campaign on the “java jackets” of cups distributed throughout the downtown Toronto core. It's phase two of a three-fleet promo, the last of which will launch in September as a corporate branding campaign for the holiday season, says Peirce.

“When I walk through the PATH to get to work, and I see people carrying the sleeve around - that's successful to me,” Peirce says. But success can also be measured through the number of redemptions of a discount UPC promo on the sleeves, she adds, as well as the fact that the theatre's sales have been steady since last year.
