Understanding your customers’ needs and desires, opens new doors to personalizing brand messages and adjusting product
Frontline documentary The Persuaders discusses the spiritual transcendence and emotional bonds brands can form with today’s consumers. A vast majority of brands use emotional branding as a way to attract consumers into purchasing their products. Emotional branding is an appeal to a consumer 's needs, desires and emotional state. Brands use emotional branding by presenting consumers with advertisements that will create meaning and identity. Emotional branding is not about what the product is, but what it means to consumers. Eyeshadow advertisements “The Blushed Nude” from Maybelline New York and “Colorstay” from Revlon present similar products that create distinct emotional bonds with consumers by presenting images of women with distinct emotional desires. Desires of love, independence, and strength give rise to consumers to find an identity and meaning within the advertisements.
This commercial presents a simple story, unlike a more common vehicle commercial that typically endorses the product by delivering facts and information. Chevrolet, nor anything about their vehicle, is verbally mentioned at all in this commercial. The idea of this commercial is obviously to advertise Chevrolet’s product, an Equinox in this case. However, the purpose is deeper than just to show off and market their vehicle. The clear purpose is to touch hearts through its warm story of a golden retriever named Maddie who has
Today, an expanding number of shoppers are utilizing at least one types of online networking to interface with loved ones. They are sharing EVERYTHING that goes ahead in their life. What an open door for brand mindfulness and item advertising! Future clients are shaping feelings about you at this moment and you have to comprehend what they are considering, and of more prominent significance, what they are stating to others.
"Chevy runs deep" is appeling to a sympatheic audience who views the value of an old chevy pick up as sentimental.The cost to fix the pick up is more than the entire truck, but the owner clearly wants to keep the nostalgia of the old pick up. If i had to label the commercial I would choose pathos. I feel it portrays more feeling than actual fact, and the only knowledgeable authority is the mechanic. The mechanic offers his opinion as to what condition the truck is in, and what the owner should do. To make an arguement for or against the value of the truck by owner is weak. The commercial is too short to form a real opinion. No
“As Audiences, platforms, channels and devices continue to fragment into ever-more-spe- cific niches, earning people’s attention has become ever more challenging. To find audi- ences and break through all the noise, brands must create content that seek out, love, and share with others” (Jarboe 2011, p.455)

Therefore, it is important to create a brand that individuals are able to engage with and also receive a unique experience. Engagement with consumers can be achieved through creating opportunities for involvement outside your brand. With the rise in technology and the changes in consumer behavior there has been a shift in values when it comes to choosing certain brands. People gravitate to brands in which are in line with their values. Authenticity, transparency, and quality are aspects that are of importance.

O.P.E.N. involves on-demand, personal, engaging and networked. Open branding is a brand shifts its communication platform from traditional to innovative. This novel platform allows customers to share their thoughts and ideas directly on the marketer’s website. With the increase number of new technologies, customers are no longer interested in traditional market because the traditional market lacks communication with their customers and this results in lower consumer loyalty for a brand. Open branding strategy gives the traditional market an opportunity to improve their relationships with customers. Consumers want to engage more on market today, and they want their voice to be heard, so many brands shift their strategies to keep their paces in the digital era.
Look around you in retail, you’ll see people googling reviews and hitting their Social networks to make sense of the retail options they face. For brands, marketing to respond to this new reality is vital, but it’s messy, often hit or miss, and often takes purchasing online and away from in-store. The struggle to digitally merchandise in ways that align with today’s digitally connected consumers and their need to buy with confidence from brands they trust, like and understand is a huge challenge. It’s a challenge that’s not just about physical environments, it’s also physiological, getting brands connected emotionally and intuitively through physical devices and digital media. So like any smart dad, I turned to my in-house marketing gurus; my 23- and 11-year old daughters for
So in order to change people's viewpoint and attitude on this not so pretty car, an advertising campaign was developed.
The commercial has admirable intentions, and the strategy makes sense. According to me this advertisement has led to interest not only fathers but women or girls who would be willing to drive car one day. Being the only daughter it was an emotional appeal for me to see the girl competing with boys; and the father thinking about the position she would be
Barez Brown mentions that “The best people I know who understand their personal brand demand feedback from every big interaction”. Sometimes it is hard to ask for people’s opinion or assessment about
Ford did not approach the question of redesigning the gas tank to make the car safer versus waiting another year allowing the foreign market to dominate subcompact vehicles. Their goal was only to maximize profits. They did not into account the interests of their share holders and when they did come into consideration, they were analyzed against profits. One has nothing to do with the other. Their goal should not have been a race to make the most affordable subcompact car. Their focus should have been to make a subcompact car that was not only most affordable but also the safest subcompact. They were aware of the dangers associated with the rush production. It would have made a difference if the $11 savings had been passed on to the customers because they would've kept their reputation and integrity in tact and possibly gain customers who were not considering the vehicle. Any rational customer would not have chosen to save $11 to drive a car at the risk of dying. It is never appropriate to knowingly jeopardize people's lives. That is a criminal act. Their actions were socially irresponsible, ethically and morally wrong. They did not consider their own reputation nor did they consider that they represented America in the industry.
There is no doubt that the customer is king because without customer, there is no business. Today, brand can easily attract or lose customers. With the increasing number of social platform and numbers of creating account, customers’ voices are raised among social media, web sites or forum. In fact, we can observe that, nowadays, customers don’t hesitate to question brands, to congratulate, to criticize and even to require that brand deliver them messages adapted to their profile and their interest.

The CEO planned poorly for the future, even when the product didn’t even hit the market yet. His goal on minimal costs was his backbone for the Nano and he relied heavily on this one feature. He should have undergone more market testing for his product instead of assuming that everyone was going to go crazy for his product. He needed to come up with the proper campaign that would attract customers for additional reasons other than cost. Everyone already knows the price is extremely low, so ads should stress other qualities of the vehicle.
