Glen aims to be monarch of London

Glen will be a man about town this week with the launch of red meat promotion body Quality Meat Scotland's latest Scotch Beef advertising campaign in London.

Aimed at conquering the lucrative London market, the new adverts featuring the hunky new Glen will be seen on billboards, bus stops and underground stations throughout the city.

QMS Marketing Manager Suzie Carlaw, said: "Gaining maximum exposure among the people most likely to buy your product is the chief aim of this kind of marketing.

"We estimate that more than 3m people will see the new London advertisements during the next four months."

Complementing the campaign is in intensive in-store promotional campaign in two major retailers. Poster sites at store entrances will prominently feature the Scotch Beef advertisements and more than 150 in-store visits, with a mixture of sampling activity and promotional staff dressed as Glen will aim to drive sales and awareness amongst shoppers.

As well as targeting the major supermarkets, members of the Scotch Butchers Club, an exclusive group of independent retailers that specialise in and promote Scotch Beef, will also be taking part in the promotion.

QMS has bought the available advertising space within 400 yards of these stores and is encouraging butchers to display their Scotch Beef products prominently.

Carlaw said: "The new 'Glen' has had great coverage up in Scotland, and it's now his turn to charm shoppers down south too. The new adverts, combined with the huge amount of in-store work we're doing will hopefully make this a great summer for Scotch Beef."
