Last week, Jun Group was asked to deliver a case study presentation at the iMedia iMoms Summit in Orlando, Florida.
Mitchell Reichgut, founder and CEO of Jun Group and Brandi Unchester, senior brand manager, frozen and refrigerated breakfast at Aunt Jemima Frozen Breakfast, a Pinnacle Foods Group brand, teamed up to present: “Just Like Homemade” Social Video Recipe for Success.”
The case study showcased Aunt Jemima Frozen Breakfast’s plant in Tennessee, and the brand’s “just like homemade” story. Jun Group’s social video program was at the heart of a hugely successful online advertising campaign that delivered millions of highly targeted video views, over 150,000 coupon downloads, and more than 238,000 Facebook likes.
The videos ran on social games and mobile devices, driving an unprecedented number of opt-in video views and social interactions. The campaign was so successful that Aunt Jemima went on to use the videos for the brand’s first TV campaign since 2006.

We’re excited to announce the promotion of Lina Sinishtaj to director of client services!
Lina joined Jun Group about a year ago as senior account manager. She’s been responsible for enhancing the company’s account management and customer service capabilities, while managing day-to-day needs of clients and optimization of social video campaigns from launch through completion.
According to Jun Group’s COO Corey Weiner, “Lina has consistently delivered an outstanding level of customer service for our clients, while helping to shape her department, improve our products, and our internal processes. We’re delighted to name her as our company’s newest director.”
Way to go Lina and congratulations on a well-deserved promotion!
Recently, we completed a social video campaign for Powerade. The campaign, which ran during the final weekend of March Madness, drove more than half-a-million views and tens-of-thousands of earned-media actions, most notably, replays of “The Time-Out” video. You can watch it below.
The deal will enable King.com’s players to earn virtual rewards by choosing to watch social video ads from Jun Group’s roster of Fortune 500 brands.
In the press release, King.com’s Mark Charkin summed up the partnership best, “Jun Group’s non-interruptive model is the perfect fit for us because it allows our players to participate when they want to. They remain in control the whole time.”
We are delighted to be working with Mark and King.com!
