RCN, New York City's favorite broadband provider, connects with people close to home
Engaging people living in particular buildings is always a challenge, and even more so during a pandemic
Street cart teams activated outside specific apartment buildings throughout NYC allowed RCN to engage their ideal customers
Brand ambassadors greeted people with offers of complimentary hand sanitizer, ice pops, and an irresistible offer to switch to RCN
Activated over six weeks, RCN street cart teams engaged people throughout the neighborhoods of Flushing, Astoria, Long Island City, Harlem, StuyTown, Financial District, and Corona
RCN brand specialists smartly integrated as part of the activation to answer highly specific brand questions about broadband and help people sign up on the spot
To provide more reach, RCN leveraged photos of the public interacting with the street marketing team on Instagram and other channels with neighborhood hashtags
RCN colorful umbrellas piqued attention from afar, and once people got closer, they were invited to take RCN swag along with questions about what they currently use for their home internet
What made this street marketing initiative unique?
1.) Focus on specific buildings to reach their ideal consumer
2.) Safely engaging the public during a pandemic
3.) Neighborhoods are friendly and familiar marketing environment
4.) Activating street teams in places where they are not often seen sparks more interest than normal
