The first activity starts this week, using the strapline “Get the power of PriceRunner on your mobile”. The radio execution features a man at speaker’s corner encouraging listeners to join the price comparison revolution. Radio activity will be supported by a micro-site at mobile plus banner ads. marketing director Gary Goodman says: “Our mobile application takes price comparison to a new type of consumer who wishes to compare prices anywhere, anytime. “Creative has been developed by Bray Leino, and media buying is through Media Planning Group.

PriceRunner launched in the UK in 1999 and faces competition from and uSwitch, which embarked on its first above-the-line ad brand building campaign last year (MW December 21, 2006).
