ISUZU LEVERAGED A RUGBY PARTNERSHIP TO
DRIVE HIGH IMPACT MARKETING MOMENTS

Nine x Isuzu

CHALLENGE: At the heart of every Isuzu lies a tried and tested DNA of a refined combination of power, efficiency and reliability. In 2022, Isuzu wanted to bring this to life through the launch of the latest Isuzu D-MAX and MU-X, and to ultimately connect their product with a male audience.

SOLUTION: Rugby on Nine was identified as the perfect sporting vehicle to support Isuzu, over the Super Rugby Pacific and Wallabies Season, through compelling storytelling across our Total TV offering—including Channel 9, 9Now and Stan Sport, alongside radio integrations and Sports Sunday extension.

RESULTS: Utilising Nine's Rugby Union coverage, Isuzu put their brand message at the heart of the action—with a campaign consisting of an integrated Half-Time key moment with verbal introduction, Live Break TVC, Billboards, Radio Integration and a Key Rugby Moment extension across Sports Sunday during the Wallabies season.

"From an IUA perspective, we engaged in a 2022 Rugby Partnership with Nine to deliver multiple messages over an extended period, and so 33 weeks of rugby with multiple spots and integration allowed us to run a variety of creative at high frequency to an engaged male audience."

EDMHEADER_RATINGS

The 9Network has ended the year as No.1 in all key demographics in the five major capital cities.

For the fifth year in a row, 9Network has once again asserted its dominance as the most watched network in the five major capital cities with the demographics that matter most to advertisers.

Across the calendar year, the 9Network has swept to an emphatic victory as the outright No. 1 in all of the key demographics with People 25-54, 16-39 and Grocery Shopper + Child. Furthermore, the 9Network recorded the highest ever commercial shares of any network with People 25-54 and 16-39.

are right here on Nine

200722_Nine_Executives_Michael_Healy_0736

Michael Healy, Nine's Director of Television, said: “Nine is proud to have delivered Australia’s best content yet again to engage our audiences. As a dominant force with all key demographics, we have increased our lead over our competitors.  Our continued success is a testament to a consistent programming slate featuring the biggest moments on television, including the nation’s most talked about programs in Married at First Sight and The Block. Our sports broadcasts wield immense cultural impact as evidenced by this year’s Ashes series and thrilling NRL Grand Final. Our news and current affairs output is world-class, underscored by our remarkable achievements at this year’s Walkley Awards. We are also proudly home to the country’s No. 1 BVOD player, with 9Now boasting almost half of the commercial share.”

200722_Nine_Executives_Michael_Stephenson_0054

Michael Stephenson, Nine’s Chief Sales Officer, said: “The future of TV is Total TV - a combination of  terrestrial, live streaming and on-demand. We license, create and curate our content schedule to maximise audiences across live, live streaming and on-demand. The growth of 9Now is critical to advertisers and reflective of changes in consumer behaviour.”

The network’s continued dominance in the key demographics is underpinned by an unrivalled content slate that began in January with the Australian Open and continued throughout the year with hit after hit - Married At First Sight, LegoMasters, Parental Guidance, The Summit, The Block, Love Island Australia, Travel Guides and The Hundred with 9News, A Current Affair and 60 Minutes, as well as sporting blockbusters State of Origin, the NRL and NRLW, The Ashes, and the ICC World Cup.

The Value Equation

Group 2
Value

Value is an elusive concept, that changes from one situation to the next. But the first thing to note is that value is most certainly in the eye of the beholder. In the context of consumer culture, value is the perception of what a product or service is worth to a customer versus the possible alternatives. Worth means whether the customer feels they received benefits and services over what they paid.

Value is inherent throughout our lives,

Australian's have gone from a pandemic mindset straight into a cost-of-living mindset. But disruptions such as bank crashes and data leaks have birthed greater appetite for security and privacy.

It's clear that no matter the category, value needs to deliver more than just lower prices

The instability of the economic, and geo-political climate has made consumers prioritise traditionally functional values such as reduced cost, quality, accessibility, and safety & reliability today.

To unlock the full potential of value is an exercise that isn't necessarily that straight forward … but when you get it right, you will reap the rewards.

The beauty of value comes with its complexity - value changes by mood, category, time of life, and it's extremely contextual, but also changes by point in time.

Value is relentlessly evolving. We shouldn’t be approaching value with a fixed point of view. The world around us isn’t fixed, therefore our approach to value shouldn’t be.

It is a delicate balance that requires rigor and science to optimize to its most full potential.

Often we throw around value as quite a flippant term, but the gravity it holds is game-changing and we want to help you unlock its full potential.

We live in an increasingly complicated world, where there are many ways of ‘being human’. At the same time, all people share some experiences in common: all learn, exchange and communicate beliefs, create and maintain social relationships, and adapt to different environments and situations.

Identity is made up of a broad variety of aspects, and not all of them are perceived to be in our control

It’s clear that the desire to have our lives reflect our identity is an enduring human need, and that the experiences of the past few years have accelerated and put greater focus on this need.

Australia's population is ageing

From 2016 to 2021* Australia’s population has increased by 2.02 million, with 13% of that growth coming from people aged 55-64.

Overall, the median age has increased from 35 to 38 over the past 20 years.

While people aged 25-44 represent the largest age cohort in terms of population (28%), the 45-64 year groups equate to 25%, of which around half are over 55.

Highest household income

45-54s record the highest household income and household consumption whilst 55-64s are on par with 35-44s, and increasing at the fastest rate.

Households headed by 55-64s recorded the highest real income growth, and their ability to draw down from their super further fuels consumption growth.

Growth in household consumption can be attributed to lifestyle changes:

  1. Stronger growth in their incomes, compared with other age groups.
  2. Household composition changes, such as children staying at home longer, or increased life expectancy.

In the past 6 months, 45-64s have been spending on a wide range of categories from dining out and beauty to gardening and technology.

Super Consumers are influencers

SuperConsumersAreInfluencers

"My mother bought a car. I recommended Toyota because of its reliability."

Male, 55-64

"Typically mobile phones and what is best for my parents."

Male, 55-64

"My dad has asked me if I knew anything about toasters so I described the toaster (I recently purchased) and where I purchased it from."

Female, 55-64

"I was asked by my parents what streaming products I recommend and I highly recommended Netflix as it is the best brand for streaming the latest movies."

Male, 45-54

Influencing generations before...

...and after them

"My daughter and her wife have just bought their first house. As part of setting up their new home, they have needed to buy new appliances and organise plumbers and electricians. My daughter has asked my opinion on both brands and contractors to help her make decisions on what to purchase and who from. I have been happy to help with that as I know she values my opinions gained from life experience."

Male, 55-64

"I have advised my adult daughters on recommendations for things like insurance, supermarket products like brands of tea and coffee to just name a couple...

Also, my experiences with my laptop brand and the store I bought it from."

Female, 55-64

"My daughter admired my coffee machine. I explained its features and what was needed for the average coffee buff. We discussed brands that she had been looking at in comparison to what I had."

Female, 45-54

"My son has wanted to purchase the same sort of fridge that I had just bought. So, I guided him on what to look for in a fridge and the companies/websites to look at or avoid."

Nine’s Q1 Ratings 2023

Q1Header_02

42.5% comm share
Linear TV People 25-54

56.5% comm share
BVOD People 25-54

With more hit programs than any other network, the 9Network has enjoyed its best ever start to the year since the inception of OzTAM in 2001, together with record streaming numbers on 9Now.

At the conclusion of Quarter One of 2023, the 9Network is a dominant No.1 on linear television with People 25-54, 16-39, Grocery Shopper + Child and Total People, while 9Now is trouncing the opposition as Australia’s outright No.1 CFTA BVOD platform with all key demos and Total People.

The unassailable combination of the 9Network’s market leading television network, coupled with the country’s favourite CFTA BVOD platform, make for a truly powerful Total TV proposition.

The bumper free-to-air and commercial shares achieved by the 9Network are the highest on record at this point of the year.

Across both the calendar year and the survey year, the 9Network has blitzed all opposition.

The 9Network and Nine’s primary channel have won every week of the ratings survey period with all key demographics and Total People.

Michael Healy, Nine's Director of Television, said: “These results are nothing short of phenomenal. To have achieved our best first quarter on record is a real credit to everyone at Nine and to our production partners for creating such engaging programming that has resonated so strongly with the Australian public. We don’t take the loyalty of our viewers for granted and look forward to providing even more compelling viewing moments in the coming months.”

200722_Nine_Executives_Michael_Stephenson_0054

Michael Stephenson, Nine’s Chief Sales Officer, said: “At the beginning of the year we said Nine would be the safest bet for Australian advertisers and after the first quarter there is absolutely no doubt that we have delivered the biggest audiences across our Total Television platforms. Married At First Sight has delivered year-on-year growth across Total Television, the NRL has got off to an absolute flyer delivering year-on-year growth across Total Television and we’ve still got Lego Masters, Parental Guidance and The Summit all to come over the course of the next three months, in addition to the NRL State of Origin, and news and current affairs. We are up to 10 points ahead of our nearest competitor in audience share – if you want consistency of audience, Nine is the only place to come.”
