The BeMe campaign will launch on 3 February and run until June. It will
include poster and press work, and aims to appeal to modern women.
The campaign’s strapline is ’be whatever you want to be@BEME.COM’. Each
execution features two or more shots of women in a variety of poses.
One shows an older woman, whose legs are covered in varicose veins,
wearing a glamorous pair of heels, with the caption, ’beglam’. Another
is a picture of a nun with the caption, ’becelibate’. A third is of a
woman with a scarred face and the line, ’bebrave’.
The press ads will appear in IPC titles. The campaign will also include
CD-Rom covermounts, which offer free internet access to readers and an
interview with the editorial team at BeMe.
The campaign was written by Malcolm Green and art directed by Gary
The media planning and buying are by Walker Media.

Tom Knox, a partner at Delaney Lund, said: ’Under Sly Bailey, IPC is
going to be very dynamic, so we are delighted to be working on BeMe and
unmissabletv.com. BeMe is entering a competitive market, but we are
confident that the content outperforms what’s out there and will quickly
establish itself as the definitive place for women on the web.’
The BeMe site aims to secure 500,000 registered users in the first year
and to be the number one destination site for UK women.
