Philips Sonicare wanted to encourage people to improve their oral health by switching to Sonicare toothbrushes. To create this change and show that brushing can be fun and hassle-free, we partnered with a team of influencers. Together, we crafted compelling and relevant content to highlight the DiamondClean toothbrush’s features, benefits, and practical usage.
Philips Sonicare wanted to create high-quality, engaging content to promote their DiamondClean toothbrush for the brand’s online channels. Their content needed to both encourage people to trade their manual brush for a Sonicare toothbrush and boost their oral health.
Changing brushing routines through content

To maximize the impact of the influencer marketing campaign, we aspired to partner with a diverse group of creators across various interests and expertise, including health, lifestyle, travel, and parenting. Catering to target audiences from different niches helped us showcase the diverse features and benefits of the DiamondClean toothbrush in a way that would resonate. Through high-quality content, creators showed the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean toothbrush, its advanced technology and superior cleaning performance in authentic ways.
