This week, Charter Business rolls out its first fully integrated brand advertising campaign, titled “Everyday Victories.” [Links to 2 ad spots are below.] During its decade of offering commercial services, Charter Business has always focused its advertising on businesses of all sizes. However, the integrated “Everyday Victories” campaign aims to create more continuity, awareness, and consideration for the brand among business decision makers.

The campaign features affable spokesperson, Johnny Ray Meeks, a native of Charter’s home town of St. Louis, who visits Charter Business customers to hear their stories about how Charter Business helps them accomplish their goals. Produced in conjunction with The Richards Group of Dallas, Texas, these straightforward, lighthearted ads feature business owners talking about their everyday victories fueled by Charter Business Internet’s product superiority over DSL, reliable business phone service, and TV and digital music solutions.

“Today’s business owners understand that it’s the fundamentals of running a business – the everyday victories – that fuel success. And Charter Business is there to provide the essential communications services that are vital to making it all happen, for businesses small and large,” said Jim McGann, Charter Business Senior Vice President. “We’ve got great momentum and look forward to not only growing our business, but continuing to provide the communications tools our customers need to grow theirs.”
