Yahoo’s “It’s You” Ad Campaign Begins Today
After giving a preview of its new “It’s You” marketing campaign last week, Yahoo formally begins the global push today. Yahoo says the campaign will cover “online, television, radio, print, and outdoor” advertising, all focused on selling the company’s focus on its users.

It’s Yahoo!, redesigned, refined, reinvented, tested, and optimized to create what we belive is the most personally relevant Internet experience ever. With a homepage you can shape, your way. An Inbox that delivers email, your way. Search that finds things, your way. And all of it now mobile, to take things on the go.
Visit Yahoo! today. It’s a destination you may be familiar with. But it’s a whole new place.
