AUSTIN, TX – The Texas Beef Council (TBC) announces the launch of a new ad campaign as part of the ongoing Beef Loving Texans brand movement aimed at elevating Texans’ passion for beef. The 2017 “Only in Texas” campaign celebrates the nuances, pride and deeply-rooted values only found in this great state. Advertising for the campaign includes radio, billboards and digital television appearing in market for 16 weeks (May 15 - Labor Day).
“We’re proud and excited to launch the second year of the Beef Loving Texans advertising campaign,” said Jason Beyer, TBC board chairman and cattleman from Stephenville. “Only in Texas aims to tell Texans' stories through family, community and tradition, connecting Texan values, nostalgia, and pride to the passion Texans have for beef. I hope all beef producers in Texas will recognize the value and importance of checkoff-funded programs like this one.”
The Beef Loving Texans digital television ad is airing in Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio and Austin. Some of the streaming outlets include Hulu, Roku and Chromecast. The 30 second digital ad is expected to garner more than 26 million impressions.
“We know our target audience is consuming media online and we’ve been able to expand and innovate the digital advertising space to enhance our efforts in this medium,” said Rachel Chou, TBC senior manager of consumer communications. “Because of learnings and efficiencies from last year’s campaign, we’re able to be in the market six weeks longer and add the San Antonio market to digital TV with only a six percent increase in our advertising budget. The campaign is expected to achieve about 70 percent more total impressions.”
Texans will also see Beef Loving Texans ads on 159 billboards across the state with the expected reach of more than 337 million impressions. Radio ads will be featured on Pandora radio reaching more than 25 million Texans.
