Sneak Peek at New Ads Nutrisystem has revealed it will launch a campaign featuring multiple creative streams during the peak diet season to reach different dieting segments with more targeted, relevant messaging. "We know there are different kinds of dieters and we know we have high brand recognition," explained Amburgey. "The challenge becomes how can we explain the Nutrisystem trifecta – efficacy, easy-of-use and value." The distinct advertising creative concepts will roll out beginning December 26 and will be complemented by direct marketing and social efforts on the Company's Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram pages where real customers have already started posting pictures declaring their readiness. Here are brief descriptions of the three creative platforms, along with sample video: "Now I Can" – A fresh take on the personal testimonial with "humanized" celebrities and real people in the same format. In this execution, the Nutrisystem® program is the hero, the individual's personal dieting struggle is solved and their success is celebrated.
