IDG Unveils First Companywide Brand Campaign
New York, NY – March 17, 2016 – IDG, the world’s leading technology media, data and marketing services company, today unveiled its first-ever companywide branding initiative. IDG’s new branding unifies its corporate identity and showcases the full breadth of its global product portfolio to clients and consumers.
Historically known for its powerful global brands, including CIO, Computerworld, Macworld and PCWorld, IDG’s new branding reflects its evolution from a brand-driven publisher to a global media company that activates and engages the most influential technology buyers, offering premium brands and audiences on a worldwide scale.
IDG’s new tagline highlights the company’s ability to connect the world of tech buyers with “Insights, Intent & Engagement”. IDG bridges the worlds of art and science through its intimate knowledge of technology media, leveraging its 50 years of editorial expertise, creating engaging content that accelerates purchasing and deepens engagement, and reaching the best buyers at the optimal time with its data-driven approach.
“IDG is speaking to the market with a single, powerful voice that better reflects who we are today: the new model of a media company,” said Josh London, CMO, IDG. “By unifying our marketing globally, we’re making it easier for customers to understand IDG’s singular ability to influence and engage the most powerful audience of tech buyers in the world.”
As commerce has become increasingly borderless, marketers need to reach their best customers and prospects across brand and geographic boundaries. CMOs, tasked with driving growth in their organizations, need a partner that can deliver premium audiences with purchase intent across the world, whether that’s CIOs in Paris, Texas, or Paris, France. With a platform approach to services, IDG’s capabilities across media, data and marketing services and its deep domain expertise offers marketers incredibly specific targeting in a consistent manner across the globe.
“IDG has made the leap from traditional publisher to data-driven media and marketing machine, with nearly 90 percent of our revenues driven by our digital capabilities,” said Michael Friedenberg, CEO of IDG. “Our new brand campaign reflects how IDG’s relevance to its readers and customers only gets stronger.”
