  • THE CONTENTS01EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Purchasing a car is a big commitment. For most, it is one of the biggestfinancial commitments of their lives. When Central Edge began studying thepsychographics of our consumers, many things became clear. This is a brandloyal generation with high expectations from companies. When it comes tocars, it is not features, colors, or even price that drives them to purchase acar. They believe a company should do more than just provide products orservices. They also have an expectation of community involvement. They wantto know how that brand is going to benefit them in their everyday lives. Over the past seven months, we conducted extensive research andstrategized the most effective way to reach our target market. Central Edgeassociates spent a day in the life of numerous Multicultural Millennials to walkin their shoes. We crafted Cultural Analysis Maps to help guide us through thecampaign and uncovered barriers that were stopping them from purchasingNissan vehicles. On the following pages, we present the strategies and executions thatwill be effective in increasing market share among Multicultural Millennialswho are 18 - 29 years-old. Our campaign is not grounded in MulticulturalMarketing, but it is grounded in being culturally aware. Our campaign willreinforce that Nissan is the most innovative automotive company in the world.Central Edge is confident that we have met all your objectives and exceededNissan’s expectations. In short, we have been as innovative as Nissan.- Scott Whisenhunt, Account ManagerThe Summary………....................…………………..1Edge of Advertising…………......……….........…….1TheAnalysis….......……………......…………………..2The Research………...............…..………………3 - 4The Findings……....………………………………….…5The SWOT.................…………………........…………6The Insights……....……………………………………..7TheTarget.............…….............……………………..8The Competition….....………......……….........9 - 10The Decision........……………..……...............……11The Process……......….…….................…………..12The Objectives……....…………......………………..13TheStrategy………....….....…...…………………….14The Vision……...........................…………………..15The Creative.............…..….…………………. 16 - 18The Storyboard…................……………………….19The Relationships……….………..................20 - 24The Plan............................................................25The Tactics.............................………...…….26 - 28The Numbers………..........…….......……………….29The Chart…...……………………...…………....30 - 31The Follow Up...……………………………………….32Appendix and Team Roster.…………Back CoverWe are a diverse group of students with different majors, interests andideas, but we all have the same belief that our clients and their brandssuccess comes first.

  • Multicultural Millennials: Nissan:Nissan Campaign Driving Insight:THE ANALYSIS02• As much as they are separated and defined by their culture andheritage.They are joined by their pursuit of being a part of the whole.• They respect the past, but they look to the future fully confident thatthey can change it and correct the mistakes of those who wentbefore them. They believe they can change the world.• When it comes to buying a new car – they want style, features,speed and reliability… but their choice is driven by two factors:money and life-stage. These two factors will assist the consumer inmaking their final choice.• They do not trust companies – and they don’t trust the advertisingdone by most companies.• Consumers expect companies to pay a price for the right to dobusiness. They want to buy from companies that do more than justmake money.• Nissan does not have a distinctive or clearly defined personalitywith its prospects.• Nissan makes the Evoked Set list of most Multicultural Millennials,but it is so near the bottom that if they find a good deal on a higherranking competitor – they never even look at a Nissan.• Nissan really is an innovative company…that is not just advertisinglingo (although our prospects don’t really understand what Nissanmeans by Innovation, and they aren’t really sure why they shouldcare).• Nissan is a company that pays back on a global basis - althoughour prospects view “paying back” as a more localized response.• Nissan really does have a reason why it does what it does – beyondjust making money. Their mission and vision is defined as “enrichingpeople’s lives.”While we gathered and analyzed information, we discovered several key truths about MulticulturalMillennials and Nissan. These key findings drove the Central Edge response to the problems andopportunities identified in this challenge as well as our overall campaign strategy. Ultimately, these keytruths led to the insights that drove this campaign.“Everything we do, we do because we believe in innovation. We believe in building cars that are unique anddeliver superior value. The way we challenge the status quo is by building quality vehicles that are more efficient,more beautiful, and more innovative than ever. We believe all companies should be good citizens in the globalcommunity, and to that end, we focus on and contribute to humanitarian aid, support education, and care forthe environment. We just happen to make great vehicles.”
  • Understanding MulticulturalMillennials and Nissan.We executed six different types of research to understandand gain insight into the lifestyle of Multicultural Millennialsin the U.S. to shape our campaign and build a long-termrelationship between Multicultural Millennials and Nissan.ObjectivesUnderstand the purchasing habits of MulticulturalMillennials when purchasing a vehicle.{ {{ {{{} }} }}}Understand the commonalities among MulticulturalMillennials in the U.S.Explore/understand cultural influences.

  • THE SWOT06Our Central Edge campaigntackles these barriers andmisconceptions which include:• Lack of brand perception.• Cognitive resonance in today’soversaturated auto industry.• Creating new and reviving longlasting relationships and brandfavorability with MulticulturalMillennial Americans.• Always on the edge of Innovation.• Quality cars at reasonable prices.• Variety of styles and features tomeet most consumer expectations.• Company is already engaged inon-going innovative research.• Nissan has a strong andestablished corporate citizenshippolicy.• Strong environmental initiatives.• Create a brand identity thatdistinguishes Nissan from itscompetitors.• Develop an online and socialmedia relationship with MulticulturalMillennials.• Opportunity to alter the purchaseprocess.• Create brand loyalty by gaining thetrust of the Millennial generation.• Community involvementopportunities to put Nissan in theconsumer’s day-to-day lives.• Nissan has an inconsistentbrand identity.• Weak brand position amongconsumers.• No persona in the market.• Fragmented web presence.• No existing relationship withmulticultural sub-segments.• Innovation from their competitors.• Competition for Millennialmarket share.• The economy.BarriersStrengthsWeaknesses ThreatsOpportunities

Unified, they are the future. They area part of the first generation of true digital natives. Multicultural Millennials are born into aglobal culture and defined by unifying, not distinguishing attitudes.THE INSIGHTS07{{{}}}
  • THE TARGET08All multicultural segments are unique, and in many ways, that uniqueness influences their shopping and buying habits, butwhen it comes to buying new cars – our research confirms that their buying habits are minimally influenced by culturalheritage – it is driven instead by their life stage and economic status, factors which impact virtually all car buyers.When it comes to buying cars…despite theirdifferences…four factors rise to the top ofthe influence set for all three segments:style quality price life stage{ }These factors separatethem into two Primarybuying segments andone secondary market• Lower end of age category• Just finishing school; starting careers• Style and price driven• Feature desirous• First new car purchase• Usually single• Often a family assisted purchase• Competitively confused• Peer influence is high• Family input is important• Probable Nissan Purchase: Versa and Altima• Older end of age dynamic• Building career• Style and feature driven• Price sensitive• With a partner – often a family• Concerned about family and peerimpression• Influence buying decisions• Opinion leaders on purchase choice• Provide financial assistance for some buyersSTARTERSDRIVERSPARENTSWith younger elements of our target market parents are also a key sub-segment. Frequently Multicultural Millennial parentsare important purchase influencers and may also purchase or co-sign for their child’s first car. Central Edge addresses thiskey public through the development of special sales promotion plans, parent specific marketing materials and selectedmedia placements.The Third Sub-Segment/Tertiary:
  • THE COMPETITION09How to distinguish Nissan from its competition?Our research clearly told us that when our prospects think aboutcar brands and begin the car selection process, they have difficultyseparating one car’s features from another…and that they have NO CLEARperception of NISSAN as a BRAND and assign NO BRAND PERSONALITY to itscars.The Buying ProcessWhat consumers do first in the buying decision process is recall theperception of a brand. Once they have accessed their evoked set ofbrands, built on awareness and perception- only then do they begin tocontrast features.How do we expand saleswith Multicultural Millennialsbeyond 25 percent? Howdo we stand-out from ourcompetitors?By creating a distinctbrand personality andposition, not just bycreating awareness offeatures.Making it into the evoked set is in great part determined by howconsumers perceive our brand in comparison with its competitors.They know our name... but they don’t connect with us. Nissan lacks astrong brand identity or personality.It’s not about comparing features…it’sabout realizing what connects usand what makes us memorable.Automotive Industry Market ShareWall Street Journal - September 2011Nissan ranks 4th insales in the total carmarket and 3rd inMulticultural Millennialsmarket share with 25%of its sales comingfrom these prospects.NissanHyundaiOtherGMFordToyotaHonda8.8%4.9%30%19.7%16.6%11.5%8.5%{}
  • Central Edge used the Vehicle Innovation Strategy Framework to define the personalities of Nissan and its competitive set inorder to clarify brand personas. We have developed a campaign designed to distinguish and create a distinctive brandpersonality for Nissan to build stronger and specific brand recall…a true competitive difference. This concept is based on aspecialized application of Brand Archetypes and their ability to relate to car buyers.Our campaign is carefully designed to shift Nissan’s brand perception with Multicultural Millennials from the Fast Followerto the Architectural Revolutionizer. By strategically positioning Nissan’s Innovation and building new relationships withMulticultural Millennials, we will show them that Nissan does much more than make vehicles. They make vehicles to improvetheir lives and the way they move through the world.Create a distinctposition andbring the brandposition to life…The key to out performing our competition….THE COMPETITION10The Brand BuilderBrand-oriented, Product innovations, Mid-size volumes, High-end customersFast FollowerImproves innovations andbrings themtothemass-marketMass-Market AdapterAdapts andimproves existingproduct innovations, LowcostsArchitectural RevolutionizerFocuses largely on process innovation, Shifts from mass to niche-marketsHigh-End OptimizerPremium product, Innovations by systems and components enhancementCost and Process SpecialistInnovations based on new manufacturing processesVertical Kia Motors Logo 1/C - 100% Pantone 1807
  • It’s all about the brand.…it’s all about what Multicultural Millennials think about the brand.It’s about what happens when the decision to buy a new car is made.THE DECISIONWhy isn’t Nissan at the top of MulticulturalMillennials go to list?• Our prospects tell us they don’t have any perception ofNissan that makes it stand out from the crowd.• They tell us increasing features and claims haveblended into a muddle of confusion. They remind usthat once one company has a new feature it is quicklycopied.• It is true that all we can own is our consumer’s perceptionof our brand..• Our first challenge is to create a distinct personality thatdistinguishes Nissan from other brands…an identity withwhich our prospects can build a relationship and trust.Central Edge research made us reconsider whatwe thought we knew about buying a new car:• We discovered that Nissan is in the evoked set… but it isnear the bottom of that list.• Our prospects have a difficult time separating advertisingfor one brand of car from another.• Prospects are confused about the features offered byone brand compared to another.• Two factors determine our prospect’s final decision:1112Desire for style but mostimportant are money andfinancing options.Life stage needs…youngand single or settling downand starting a family.{ }
  • Central Edge looked at biology to understand how we process, understand, and respond to messages. Part of thebrain (the Neocortex) is responsible for rational and analytical thought and language. The other two sections areresponsible for all of our feelings of loyalty and trust, in addition to human behavior and decision making.• When we communicate from the Outside-In, we are talking to the neocortex - most car advertising that stresses a list of facts,features, and benefits is delivered there. People exposed to these messages can process complex advertisements, but thosemessages do not drive behavior.• Advertising that is Inside-Out talks directly to the part of the brain that controls behavior. Inside-Out advertising is based onan emotional relationship - this is where gut decisions come from - it means breaking through to change perceptions withperceptual impact... if we can communicate to prospects why Nissan is a different company - why they do what they do andhow that makes them distinct... that causes consumers to respond through positive behavior.12ProblemRecognitionThe NISSANBuying Decisionprocess“I know!”As the Multicultural Millennialnew car buyer goes through thedecision process and reachesthat final decision point… theywill be able to say…Our goal is not to sell to people who need a new car. Our goal is to sellto people who believe in what we are and why we do what we do.“I need anew car!”InformationSearchTalk to:FamilyFriendsDealers Look atOptions:GETCONFUSEDEvoked SetAsk “Whatbrand do Ilike & Why?”Look for acompany Ibelieve inand trustDiscover:“I knowwhat todo.”ReadReviewsTHE PROCESS{ }
  • OBJECTIVES13Marketing Objectives:• To increase enquiry to salesconversion rate from 4% to 7%.• To increase Nissan showroomand online enquiries amongMulticultural Millennials to1,457,914 units.• To increase Nissan’s share ofmarket with Multicultural Millennialsby 13% (15,187 units).Communication Objective:Our communication objective is to builda distinct and memorable persona amongMulticultural Millennials by generatinga carefully crafted relationship-orientedbrand identity.Positioning Statement:To Multicultural Millennials Nissan is theautomobile company that utilizes technologyand innovation not only to make great cars,but to connect people, and their communitieswhile enriching people’s lives and the waythey move through the world.Creative Objective:Our objective is to generate creativethat doesn’t add to the existing clutterof car advertising. We will generate abrand personality that reflects the voiceand attitude of Multicultural Millennialswith ads that lead them to search forinformation about Nissan and why it isan innovative company that’s workingto enrich peoples’ lives.
  • THE STRATEGY14Multicultural Millennial Americans are very complex.They are tech savvy, unique and know they are thefuture. Most importantly they don’t like advertisingand they don’t trust companies.In our research it became more evident that, in orderto break through and build a lasting relationshipwith them, we had to do two things:IN SHORT, we are working to beas Innovative as Nissan.12We had to break negative perceptions and create a newperception of Nissan as a car company that does muchmore than just build vehicles. A perception that we are acompany that enriches their lives by contributing to theircommunities, environment and their world.We have to move Nissan to the Top ofMulitcultural Millennials evoked set, which ultimately willincrease long lasting brand favorability for generationsto come.• In Today’s automotive market, consumers aresaturated with different styles, colors and messages.Our campaign strategy does much more thanadvertise cars to our target. It is carefully designedto forge a new relationship with them. By relatingINNOVATION for ALL to their everyday lives.• From the beginning, Central Edge planners were morethan convinced that adding “just another tag line”wouldn’t be successful.• Plain and simple, it would just confuse them.• Our campaign is carefully designed to impact andmake the Innovation for All thememeaningful to Multicultural Millennials.• Our campaign executions must reach Millennialswherever they are, whatever they see, whenever theysee it.• We are using a combination of traditional, non-traditional and inventive communications strategies.Why No Slogan?• Central Edge tested dozens of them…mostseemed trite and expected.• None of them strengthened the concept ofinnovation – and we wondered if they would cloudNissan’s existing use of two strong taglines: • Shift the Way You Move… • Innovation for All• Finally, we asked “Would a sub-campaigntucked under the overall Nissan advertisingumbrella be too different from its core?” and,most importantly – why diminish the strengthof an established campaign; an identifyingelement that continues to build brandawareness… Why not create a campaign themethat expands and blends for our prospect base?{{}}
  • THE VISION15HOW WE GOT THERECentral Edge Brand Idea:Big Idea:Creative Vision: Creative Executions:Creative Language Use:Multicultural Millennials seek to do business with trustworthy companies that contribute tothe world by enriching peoples’ lives.Innovation is more than a tagline - it’s what we do. It’s the driver of how MulticulturalMillennials think. Innovation is what they do, and how they choose to spend their money.They want to be a part of companies that do more than make a profit.• Central Edge creativefocuses on giving ourprospects a voice.• Our campaign willassist Nissan in buildinga dynamic interactiverelationship with Millennials,where they can express theirthoughts with a companythat’s striving to be a leaderof innovation.• We will create anenvironment whereprospects believe in ourcompany and brandbecause they understandwhy we do business andhow our innovations willenrich their lives.• Central Edge creative executions are from the point-of-view and in the voice of ourprospects. Print and broadcast feature members of our prospect base in moments andsituations in their lives. It conveys how their life choices relate to the cars that are a part oftheir world.• Campaign executions are designed to be distinct and stand out from other car advertising.Virtually all executions are interactive and are created to utilize distinct and engagingtechnology.• Central Edge research confirms that the majority of Multicultural Millennials are Englishlanguage fluent and may or may-not read and write in their cultural language. However,our research also confirmed that spending some of our budget on Multicultural languagespecific ad placements made sense. First of all, parents are of significant influence inthe decision to purchase a new car among the lower age range of our prospect base.Many of this groups parents are first generation American, utilize native language mediaand are most influenced by messages in their native language. Thus, most advertisingwill be placed in English and in English language media, however we will use selectedpublications and broadcast media to specifically target Hispanic language and Chineselanguage speaking prospects and their influences.• Specialized media will include magazines, newspapers, Hispanic language magazines andHispanic and Chinese language television with language specific out-of-home messageplacements.Nissan’s Vision Statement: Enriching peoples’ lives

  • • The challenge of public relations – building public relationships – demands that expenditure of PR efforts, time, and monies be focused onlyon things that bring positive attention to the organization and brand, contribute to fulfilling the organization’s commitments, and help to buildpublic awareness through positive publicity.• Nissan already has an established three-prong commitment to corporate citizenship involvement through humanitarian aid, education andenvironmental improvement – all with an on-going link to the corporate mindset of Innovation.• It is an essential mandate of Central Edge public relations programming that our campaign efforts maintain compatibility with that established focus.• All public relations efforts will function under the singlevoice umbrella of the Innovation Generation.

With new technology, 85% of buyers are doing researchonline before going to dealerships. Nissan must capitalize on thisby creating virtual showrooms online.Virtual Showrooms include:Central Edge recommends that Nissan initiate a one-year testrun of the Innovation Zone at two dealerships in each of our top 5DMAs. The Innovation Zone will be a section in showrooms that usestechnology to engage and empower consumers. It will include:• Information that will generate trust and transparency suchas photos, pricing, product features and inventory, as well asoutside links to car reviews by industry leaders.• Transparent Pricing: Consumers already have access towhat a car costs, so dealers with transparent pricing will beseen as responsible.• Scheduling Appointments: Consumers will feel as thoughthey are setting the terms for dealer interaction.• Corning Glass Walls: Corning makes tough, sleek touch-screen glass that will allow Nissan to show videos, point-of-purchase ads and information about vehicle options. Thesewalls will be used by consumers and sales associates tovirtually browse the dealerships.• Augmented Reality: Another component of the InnovationZone is the augmented reality section. Customers will usespecialized glasses to view a 3D version of any Nissanmodel. With assistance of sales associates consumers cancustomize a vehicle completely from colors to features. Thiswill allow customers to walk around the virtual vehicles andopen doors to see inside their personalized car.• QR Codes: We will place QR codes on vehicles alongsidethe traditional information sheets.

  • THE FOLLOW UP32EVALUATION• Success of Central Edge’s Innovation campaign for Nissan will be measured through the use of ON-GOING CAMPAIGN MONITORING.• The primary challenge for our evaluation is to measure an increase of Multicultural Millennial market share.• This will be measured by tracking the increase in sales for each sub-segment by quarter.• Monthly tracking studies will be done to measure impact of the campaign on the following: • Number of sales to 18- 29 year-old Multicultural Millennials • Retention rate of the target market • Brand awareness and perception of Nissan • Perception of dealership experienceDIGITAL EXPERIENCE• We will track campaign success via Facebook and Twitter Analytics.• Success of these social media vehicles will be measured monthly by employees.• Google Analytics will be used to track the success of our micro-sites.• Perception of digital aspects will be evaluated by surveys before, during, and after the campaign. Surveys will strictly be given to members of the designatedtarget market.CAMPAIGN METRICS• Metrics to be evaluated include: • IMAGE METRICS: the intangible elements of brand identity that include, Awareness, Recognition, Relevance, Preference, and Loyalty. • IMPACT METRICS which determine performance and are the most critical elements in determining brand equity. They include, Market Share, Profitability, Price Premium, Perceived Quality, and Brand Associations.• These will be evaluated utilizing online focus groups, real-time surveys, instant feedback, creative testing, consumer brand communities, Social Network analysis,and MTV Trendwatch partnership.CAMPAIGN EFFECTIVENESS• The campaign will also be measured against successful attainment of marketing, communications, and creative objectives generated by the campaign.THE PITCH:The perception may be that Millennials are hard to reach. But are they really?As a generation that prides themselves on being outspoken, they make it clear what they’re looking for in a company. They’ve told ussome things matter more than others, and that they won’t buy what you do until they buy why you do it.They want companies who believe what they believe and understand their values. What they value goes beyond great products andfeatures. They value the intangibles of life—things like a better world, a sense of purpose, and the endless pursuit of innovation. Theseare all things Nissan strives to achieve on a daily basis. They just happen to make great vehicles. Millennials need to be remindedthat Nissan is an extension of their own thoughts on innovation and the world.Millennials are changing the way business is done and the reasons products are bought. Thus, traditional ad campaigns aren’tregistering. These insights lead us to craft a brand campaign that showcases the relationship between Nissan and Millennialscentered around their ideas of innovation. Together, the ideas are limitless and ever-changing, which creates something that will lastfor generations to come—Innovation…for all.
