Advil: The Road Less Traveled – GSK-Advil partnered with One Solution to create custom digital content that authentically connected with the AA audience to increase consumer engagement and cultural relevance. By highlighting an underrepresented niche of the AA community and sharing relatable stories, the brand was able to foster engagement and establish a larger brand presence within the Black “outdoor enthusiast”-community. The Road Less Traveled is a mini, vlog-style series that showcases Black adventurists who are determined to live their best outdoor life. Covering everything from where to buy equipment, to preventing injuries, adventurists spoke about what it takes to maintain their physical stamina and ultimately provided real advice for other black adventurists looking to break into their respective fields. Our adventurist showcased the essentials that they bring on every adventure and how certain brands help them in their preparation or recovery of their day-to-day activities.

Walmart aligned with the One Solution team to create custom digital content that authentically connected with the Black audience and organically aligned with the HBCU experience. The HBCU CONNECTION content series profiled an HBCU student, an alumni entrepreneur and an HBCU grad influencer who each shared their personal experience and how their network of supporters help them achieve their success. Leveraging the power of Urban One’s digital/social platforms and influencer relationships, the series was a prime vehicle to message Walmart’s recognition of the unlimited abilities of the Black audience during the marquee Black culture moment of Homecoming season and acknowledge the importance of paying support forward.

One Solution partnered with Paramount Pictures to create an all-encompassing digital program – inclusive of a thematically aligned custom video experience to drive awareness, excitement and tune-in among target audiences.
