Differentiation is key in marketing, and using the Irish language in the marketing mix can be a powerful way of standing out from the crowd. Many Irish businesses seek ways to emphasize their origin and brand values to build stronger connections with the audience. The judges are looking for examples of companies which have harnessed the marketing potential of the Irish language and bilingualism and used this to support branding and positioning in the marketplace. Entrants may be using Irish to attract new customers, increase customer loyalty, harness goodwill, gain a marketing edge over competitors, or enhance their public relations efforts.

Tá an t-idirdhealú ríthábhachtach sa mhargaíocht, agus is bealach an-láidir é úsáid na Gaeilge mar chuid den mhargaíocht le seasamh amach ón slua. Bíonn a lán comhlachtaí Éireannacha ag lorg bealaí le béim a chur ar a ndúchas agus ar luachanna a mbranda. Tá na moltóirí ag lorg samplaí de ghnólachtaí a bhain leas as an bhféidearthacht mhargaíochta a bhaineann leis an nGaeilge agus leis an dátheangachas, agus a d’úsáid seo le tacú le brandáil agus le suí a aimsiú sa mhargadh. Féadfaidh iontrálaithe a bheith ag úsáid na Gaeilge le custaiméirí nua a mhealladh, le cur le dílseacht custaiméirí, dea-thoil a fháil, buntáiste margaíochta a bhreith ar iomaitheoirí, nó a n-iarrachtaí maidir le caidreamh poiblí a fheabhsú.

Square

Marshall Kingston

Winner

Following a successful launch in Ireland, Square set out to expand its services, promoting economic empowerment to the 2.65 million SME’s in Spain. However, the landscape in Spain was vastly different to Square’s other markets, with 87% of in-person transactions being cash based. To penetrate this market, Square not only needed to build awareness of the ecosystem of products on offer, but also educate Spanish businesses on the benefits of utilising these products over their existing systems. Square tackled this with a combination of highimpact advertising, online campaigns, and putting existing Square Sellers front and centre of the marketing efforts.

Brian Curtin

Finalist

WHOOP is a wearable fitness and health coach that provides personalised, actionable insights via a wrist wearable and companion app. Created in Boston in 2012 the brand’s marketing had traditionally skewed towards the US, and because of this, WHOOP wasn’t resonating with global consumers.

WHOOP International was set up in Dublin in 2021, tasked with expanding the brand internationally. In 2022 the team executed a unique campaign around the Giro d’Italia cycling tour, and results exceeded expectations. Not only did WHOOP unlock international markets, but from a team perspective it was successful, as Global Marketing is now led from Ireland.
