Stardoll.com Offers Brands like Disney the Perfect Way to Target Girls
AD2ONE, the global digital group that provides exclusive advertising access to the world’s largest online entertainment destination for young women, Stardoll.com, is thrilled that top brands including Disney are using Stardoll to target teen girls in Australia. Stardoll has recently surpassed an incredible 50 million members worldwide; with nearly one million of those dedicated followers in Australia, mostly girls between the ages of seven and seventeen. Disney is currently using the Stardoll tween girl site to promote Miley Cyrus’ latest movie, The Last Song, which just came out in cinemas across Australia.
The Stardoll virtual paper doll community for young girls who enjoy fashion, design and making friends allows its members to choose from a collection of celebrity dolls, including the latest Miley Cyrus sponsored doll for her new Disney movie. Visitors to the site can watch the movie trailer and then they receive a virtual promotional t-shirt as a gift in their Stardoll online wardrobe. Every celebrity doll has a wardrobe full of unique clothes and there are new dolls released every week.
Stardoll was recommended by AD2ONE and Carat Victoria as the perfect location for Disney to run its online campaign for The Last Song movie due to its strong tween girl demographics. The premium tween site has loyal female members in an amazing 230 territories that go to the site to experience the site’s unique “social play” approach to celebrity and fashion in 17 languages. In less than four years, the Swedish site has grown to exceed 12.25 million unique visitors per month, 219,000 of which are from Australia with over 45,000 new members signing up daily.
“Due to its tween demographic, Stardoll is the absolute perfect medium to promote Miley’s much anticipated new movie The Last Song. Her fans know and love her for her Hannah Montana character, so they will be very excited to see this new movie,” said Nicole Ryan, Digital Executive, Carat Australia.
“The choice of the amazingly successful Stardoll site by brands like Disney, who want to target teen girls clearly demonstrates the value of premium sites for branding campaigns, which always deliver an outstanding response from the sites’ young member community,” said Phil Duffield, Managing Director, AD2ONE.
