Kirshenbaum Bond & Partners


kb&p''s media folks consider themselves media anthropologists. We are part of the new breed of media people: media planners + brand planners. kb&p''s Media Department specializes in reaching people in unique and surprising ways. It''s very easy to reach lots of people—just buy a spot on prime time TV—but it''s very difficult to reach people in a way which really strikes a chord for a specific brand situation. Before we schedule media for a client, we ask ourselves how does the target use media? What do they do during the day that affects their media consumption? Are they never home because they''re working? Are they attending PTA meetings? Once we completely understand the target, we focus on consumers'' interaction with the brand. We ask ourselves and the target, how do they interact with the product and where do they find information regarding using and purchasing the brand or similar products? Once we understand the target''s media consumption and the target''s relationship with the brand, we look for the intersection point and really try to influence the dynamic. For instance, for Snapple we developed an iron-on to reach teenage boys. At the time, iron-ons were trendy and retro. Our target was teenage boys, notoriously difficult to reach. Teenage boys do a lot of skateboarding, raving and snowboarding. During each of those leisure activities, iron-ons are considered fashionable. We developed an iron-on and ran it in skateboarding, snowboarding and clubbing magazines. The kb&p media crew know how to plan and buy "big" media; but what sets them apart is their ability to think small all the way down to individual projects and the best way to influence them.
