Results and Effectiveness
After an initial trial of rotating 9 messages in areas frequented by shoppers, a nominal increase in market share was gained. This gain was not from traditional washing powder competitors, but from other washing pre-treaters, specifically bleach and soaps. These strategic findings focused the direction of our brand communication, and will now play a significant role in future activation and above-the-line activities.
In Bangkok, life is lived on the street. It is also where the majority of stains are picked up. What better place to make a detergent relevant to everyday stains than on the actual stained streets? ‘Advertising stains’ were replaced by ‘real stains’; and with transparent adhesive decals placed over existing stains, the medium became the message. Each stain tells a story and Breeze provides the solution. Stains on the street may last a long time, but the stains they cause won’t. The stories involve life-lessons learned by kids which is the global strategy of 'Dirt is Good'.
Insights, Strategy & the Idea
As a market leader, Breeze’s advertising must be as innovative as its product, to ensure that whenever consumers see a tough stain, their immediate, and only response should be “Breeze can remove this stain”. Reinforcing this promise to lapsed users meant that we had to make the cleaning credentials of Breeze real and relevant to them again.
The Promo / PR Ad titled EVERY STAIN TELLS A STORY was done by LOWE advertising agency for product: Breeze Excel Washing Detergent (brand: Breeze) in Thailand. It was released in the Mar 2010.
