AICO Launches Consumer Advertising Campaign

Furniture World News on

Casegoods and Upholstery manufacturer AICO has announced an aggressive consumer advertising campaign for 2012 that focuses on leading national magazines.

Chuck Reilly, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, reports,  “the Dec/Jan issue of House Beautiful contains a 2-page spread featuring the Hollywood Swank collection; a product of the Michael Amini and Jane Seymour design collaboration.   This will be followed up with a full-page ad in the Jan/Feb issue of Elle Décor and the February issue of Architectural Digest.  We have made a commitment to all three publications and their digital counterparts for 2012.” 

“Most of AICO’s advertising efforts have been trade related.  The goal was, and continues to be, building successful symbiotic partnerships with our dealers.  What better way to ensure the success of our partners than to deliver our brand directly to millions of consumers?  All of our efforts will drive traffic to our website and then to our partners through our Dealer Locator,” stated Mike Yarbrough, AICO’s Director of Creative Arts.

Added Reilly, “in a business climate where most companies are cutting back, AICO has been fortunate as our business is up and we want to take advantage of our momentum in the marketplace. We look at consumer advertising as an investment in the future of the Michael Amini brand, which will ultimately have a positive effect on our retail partners”.

Chairman and Founder, Michael Amini said  “I am very pleased with the efforts our team has made in executing this important initiative. I look forward to the continued success of AICO as our Michael Amini brand is formally introduced to today’s consumer.”
