Marketing Syndie’s ‘Office’

May 30, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Affiliates airing NBC Universal’s “The Office” are rolling out the show’s syndication advertising campaign, ahead of the customary July pushes.
NBC, without a new first-run program to advertise this year, is focusing its promotional energy on “The Office,” which is entering broadcast syndication in September.
Under the banner “The Office is Branching Out,” NBC Universal is planning a multi-phase approach to get viewers up to speed about “Office” in broadcast syndication, Donna Mills, NBC Universal vice president of marketing and affiliate relations, said.
The first phase contains mostly clip-driven spots from the show that are currently airing in some markets, Ms. Mills said.
“The Office” promos launched early in part because Fox affiliates airing “The Office” wanted a spot to air during the finale of “American Idol” on May 20.
Stations are also receiving custom promos from NBC Universal, with cast members discussing specific markets. The promo package includes call-letter jingles and behind-the-scenes clips.
Subsequent phases of the advertising push include character-specific spots and highlighting the fact that “The Office” in syndication allows viewers to enjoy episodes from the beginning of the series, Ms. Mills said.
Stations will also have access in August to a video content-management system developed by DG Entertainment that will allow affiliates to search clips of the show by keyword, giving them the ability to cut station-specific promos.
For instance, stations can search for every instance the word “five” is said on “The Office” and use those clips to create a custom promo highlighting that “The Office” is airing five times a week.
Ms. Mills said a Tampa station that is airing “The Office,” the independent WMOR-TV, started its promo push in March. The station has already requested talent to appear at a Tampa Bay Rays baseball game, and is pitching contest ideas to NBC Universal.
“That just shows the excitement around this show, and how exciting stations are to have it, and how excited we are to push it,” she said.

  1. Fucking awesome, TV Week.
    Fucking awesome.

  2. Being shorter is no sin, if everyone else around you is taller, it is obvious you would like to to look taller as well.

  3. Shoe lifts also known as shoe inserts. Shoe lifts originated as “elevator shoes”. The early manufacturers of elevator shoes found it difficult to create as complete a range of styles as those available in normal footwear. Customers needed for anything a little less obtrusive like an insole to put in normal shoes to make them appear taller.

  4. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  5. very good article,thans for your sharing

  6. Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little homework on that. And he in fact bought me lunch because I found it for him

  7. The office is a classic show and deserves all the acclaim it receives. I am very pleased to hear that it will be coming soon.

  8. very good article,thans for your sharing

  9. Very good text. I’ve found your site via Google and I’m really glad about the information you provide in your articles.

  10. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  11. Great information that is much appreciated. Thank you for providing such interesting content in my quest to lose the flab.

  44. Bonjour, You might want to know this specific blog post is not displaying properly on the BlackBerry Browser (I have a Pearl). Anyway, I’m now browsing this page on my laptop, Thanks…

  45. This is an extremely great site you have going here. The matter is very informative and straight to the point. Excited to read more about your blog next time.

  46. Hello you because i absolutely enjoy your special site, I would enjoy if you allow me to publish a review on this site in my small would you allow me to? FNMA.OB is my main interest.

  47. Thank you for a great post

  48. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  49. Thank you for a great post

  50. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers,

  51. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  52. The actual show sister wives is actually sickening. Its sad what people think about adore these days.

  53. I like this sport. You like it? what you think of it? If you have some time, it may wish to continue your article to share with you the happiness.
