Their Goal

Increased brand preference leading to higher opt-ins

Intel vPro strives to increase brand preference leading to higher opt-ins. The primary objective is to reach out to top IT decision-makers, driving both familiarity and preference for Intel vPro, and establishing it as a platform of choice. Understanding that these IT decision-makers don’t spend much time thinking about PCs, but recognize that PCs are a critical tool for business, Intel vPro aimed to position its products as an integral part of the 'catalog' of end-user devices acceptable within a company. To achieve this, Intel vPro identified that despite the availability of multiple assets and materials to understand the product, there was a gap in knowledge and many related questions in the minds of their target audience. Leveraging Quora's platform, Intel vPro aimed to bridge this gap. They identified top questions posed by their target audience and provided them with appropriate and targeted information to increase their product understanding and preference.
Platforms such as Quora offer us an opportunity to drive thought leadership. More importantly these conversations are not one way conversations but two way which makes the entire process way more interactive.

Their Solution

Sharp dual-level targeting to ensure high brand consideration

Intel vPro utilized Quora's advanced targeting options to ensure a highly focused campaign. With a primary focus on IT decision-makers, all campaign assets were specifically targeted to this audience. Quora's behavior and topic targeting allowed Intel to reach users based on their activity and the topics they showed interest in, thereby increasing the likelihood of high engagement. Other IT Ops specialists, such as IT managers, directors of network infrastructure, directors of infrastructure services, IT operations managers, and VP/executive directors of IT, were also included in the targeting. These professionals were exposed to Intel’s vPro media campaign, ensuring a wide reach within the relevant professional community. This dual-level targeting approach, leveraging both behavioural and topic-based criteria, ensured high brand consideration and a targeted reach into the right audience segments.
