New Jersey Launches New Ad Campaign in Wake of Superstorm Sandy

'State of Resilience' Ads to Reach Corporate Decision-Makers in High-Impact Markets

PRINCETON, N.J., Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, New Jersey wants the world to know the state may have been knocked down, but they're definitely not out. A new advertising campaign set to launch in Washington, D.C., during the Presidential Inauguration aims to do just that with more than 150 city buses wrapped in "New Jersey. A State of Resilience" ads and massive banners emblazoned with the ad flying in the main hall of the capital's Union Station.

Spearheaded by privately funded and operated nonprofit Choose New Jersey, Inc., the ads are part of an integrated marketing campaign designed to reinforce the message that New Jersey has shown exceptional fortitude and resilience despite the $36.9 billion in damage inflicted on the state.  

"We want people to know that we are standing strong and that most of our companies are open for business. New Jersey is a state that stands strong in the face of adversity," said Tracye McDaniel, president and CEO, Choose New Jersey, Inc. "Home to 21 Fortune 500 companies, 17 of the top 20 pharmaceutical companies and countless other financial, technology and manufacturing firms, we are one of America's best business locations. Superstorm Sandy didn't change that."

Through Choose New Jersey, not only was the campaign funded entirely by private industry, but strategic partnerships are allowing those funds to go a long way. Through partnership with the New Jersey Ad Club, the nonprofit group mobilized the advertising and marketing industry to donate design, production and advertising space to deliver a highly cost-effective campaign. As of today, for every dollar invested in the campaign, Choose New Jersey is receiving $37 in advertising value due to this mobilization.  

The ads will continue to run throughout the year in the top MSAs based on growth potential and alignment with New Jersey's target industry sectors. To make an even greater impact, Choose New Jersey is looking for market opportunities in which a large group of CEOs, decision-makers and power-brokers are gathered. In fact, anyone attending the Super Bowl or Mardi Gras in New Orleans in February will see the same strong New Jersey image reinforced in the vicinity. To reinforce the Partnership for Action's business retention, expansion and foreign direct investment efforts, the ads will be appearing on billboards in New Jersey, as 15-second television spots both in and out of the state, in business magazines and newspapers and on social media platforms.

"The 'State of Resilience' campaign was designed to pack a punch without costing the state's taxpayers a penny," McDaniel commented, "and we're grateful for the support from the New Jersey Advertising Club and other partners that stepped up to the plate to make the campaign happen so quickly and cost-effectively."

"We are thrilled to be a part of this marketing campaign that is bringing together New Jersey's business and advertising communities," said Sandra Schler, president, New Jersey Advertising Club. "This is giving us the opportunity to work together and give back to our state by sharing messages about its positive business climate."

HarrisonRand Advertising, a Guttenberg, N.J., advertising firm, partnered with Choose New Jersey to develop a strategic and targeted multi-market campaign, which features strong imagery of construction workers to underscore the rebuilding and new building that is under way to make New Jersey stronger than ever. The Premier Tourist and Landmark Association, a media company based in New York City that represents iconic, high-traffic venues across the United States, donated placement of the four 17-foot-high banners in Union Station.

Other companies that donated services or space include: Business Facilities magazine, CBS Outdoor, Clear Channel Outdoor, Comcast, Commerce & Industry Magazine, Development Counsellors International, Gellman Images, The Jersey Journal, New Jersey Business magazine, New Jersey Law Journal, NJBIZ, NJM Insurance Group, Verizon and The Star Ledger (Advance Publications). Choose New Jersey would welcome any other companies or organizations that would like to contribute advertising space or services.

"New Jersey has really pulled together to launch this campaign to herald our business climate to corporate decision-makers," Choose New Jersey's McDaniel concluded. "I am proud that a disaster like Superstorm Sandy didn't get us down, but got us up and running as a state with a strong story to tell."

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly in the process of breaking from its heretofore relatively obscure enterprise applications (such as plant floor control and supply chain management) and going mainstream into the consumer space. More and more creative folks are interconnecting everyday products such as household items, mobile devices, appliances and cars, and unleashing new and imaginative scenarios. We are seeing a lot of excitement around applications in home automation, personal fitness, and in-car entertainment and this excitement will bleed into other areas. On the commercial side, m...
Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) are increasing at an unprecedented rate. The threat landscape of today is drastically different than just a few years ago. Attacks are much more organized and sophisticated. They are harder to detect and even harder to anticipate. In the foreseeable future it's going to get a whole lot harder. Everything you know today will change. Keeping up with this changing landscape is already a daunting task. Your organization needs to use the latest tools, methods and expertise to guard against those threats. But will that be enough? In the foreseeable future attacks w...

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation.

Cloud data governance was previously an avoided function when cloud deployments were relatively small. With the rapid adoption in public cloud – both rogue and sanctioned, it’s not uncommon to find regulated data dumped into public cloud and unprotected. This is why enterprises and cloud providers alike need to embrace a cloud data governance function and map policies, processes and technology controls accordingly. In her session at 15th Cloud Expo, Evelyn de Souza, Data Privacy and Compliance Strategy Leader at Cisco Systems, will focus on how to set up a cloud data governance program and s...

The industrial software market has treated data with the mentality of “collect everything now, worry about how to use it later.” We now find ourselves buried in data, with the pervasive connectivity of the (Industrial) Internet of Things only piling on more numbers. There’s too much data and not enough information. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Bob Gates, Global Marketing Director, GE’s Intelligent Platforms business, to discuss how realizing the power of IoT, software developers are now focused on understanding how industrial data can create intelligence for industrial operations.

Every innovation or invention was originally a daydream. You like to imagine a “what-if” scenario. And with all the attention being paid to the so-called Internet of Things (IoT) you don’t have to stretch the imagination too much to see how this may impact commercial and homeowners insurance. We’re beyond the point of accepting this as a leap of faith. The groundwork is laid. Now it’s just a matter of time. We can thank the inventors of smart thermostats for developing a practical business application that everyone can relate to. Gone are the salad days of smart home apps, the early chalkb...
We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity.
