LG: unveils £4m marketing drive for its L-Series range

The South Korean electronics giant is running a £4m integrated marketing campaign that features the "Lifes good when…" tagline, which will showcase standout features of the brand's L-Series smartphones.

Steve Gater, consumer electronics consumer marketing director, said: "There is a space in the market for attractive, affordable smartphones, and we believe the L-Series is perfectly placed to fill it."

The launch of the "style-conscious" drive follows revelations in Marketing that claimed LG's home entertainment division was switching its focus away from families to the design-savvy, "uncompromising seeker".

Activity will comprise out-of-home, print and online advertising, which has been delivered in the UK by brand activation agency MWorks.

Korea-based HS Ad is LG's global creative agency and is responsible for advertising strategy.

LG will also leverage its sponsorship of Birmingham's LG Arena by giving away tickets to "sold-out" events to LG customers, through promotions in-store, online, on radio and in press.

The company's L-Series consists of the Optimus L3, Optimus L5 and Optimus L7.
