A brand is a promise to customers, partners and prospects that sets expectations on products/ services and differentiation from competitors. It is the total of their experience and perceptions – some which can be influenced and some that cannot. Cisco’s brand promise is “We make amazing things happen when we connect the unconnected.”

Cisco’s new Internet of Everything Brand Campaign that launched last week capitalizes on ‘firsts and lasts’ and how IoE is providing the opportunity for many firsts while at the same time, leading to lasts (like the last traffic jam, the last product recall, or the last long line). The campaign itself had some digital firsts including:

  • First campaign to successfully integrate campaign story telling from brand to demand
  • First responsive web experience for desktop, tablet and mobile
  • First promotion of registered offers which are embedded directly into the experience
  • First direct connection to chat live with Cisco throughout the whole experience
  • First to leverage the new Cisco tag management system
