  • JULIE/AARON Commercial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tMVE2MaLe8I Contributed to 5% of KFC’s sales Sold 10 million in first 6 weeks Social media KFC was able to create enough spin and Internet buzz to get everyone talking about KFC without them really having to spend a whole lot of money Free publicity through highly entertaining fan made twitter and facebook pages. Tons of people are talking about the Double Down on social media still. Virtually no negative feedback on either Twitter or Facebook by fans People posted videos of themselves eating the sandwich on sites like YouTube, and celebrities like Stephen Colbert gobbled it up. Logo advertised on the “buns” of female college students handing out coupons on college campuses Paid undergrads $500 to wear sweats and hand out $5 coupons National organization for women thought it was sexist, only giving double down more publicity The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine , a pro-vegetarian group, made the Double Down sound almost dangerous when it asked KFC to avoid marketing the sandwich to children and to keep ads for the sandwich from within 500 yards of schools. Most likely gave KFC more business because it intrigued people. Significant negative buzz on blogs and in articles about the nutritional value of the item. It sparked controversy, likely aiding its sales.
  • JULIE/AARON Commercial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8krUxWGnYo&feature=related Launched March, 2010 to “fit an unmet need” Slogan: “your hands are only as clean as the towel used to dry them” Commercials focused on exposing regular hand towels as filthy and the Kleenex Hand Towel as a huge relief for germ conscious people. Also focused on how stylish the towels are and how well they fit into your decorating. The commercials make reusable towels look disgusting by showing everything they can go through in a day, including being manhandled by a dog. Created “ Drying Song ,” a song for kids that lasts as long as they should wash their hands. The lyrics and song were downloadable on their website and bloggers encouraged consumers to share their thoughts about it on Twitter (#kleenexsong) or create a YouTube video with the song. Targeted busy, health-conscious moms with marketing of the hand towels by stressing the dirtiness of regular towels and the stylish nature of the packaging. Debuted on the QVC shopping channel in January, where Kimberley Clark sold approximately 3,000 cases of Kleenex Hand Towels during the first seven minutes on-air. Social Media K-C conducted outreach to bloggers, which resulted in a lot of buzz, particularly on mom blogs. Posts on mom blogs were more positive, while green blogs were understandably negative. No accounts specifically for hand towels Many posts on Kleenex Facebook are about hand towels, including many comments by fans about how terrible the towels are, to which Kleenex is very good at responding. Stress the fact that towels are clean and go well with décor. Buzz on Twitter mostly negative because the towel is not environmentally friendly. Kimberley Clark worked with the Center for Disease Control throughout the launch to stress the “dangers” of drying hands with a reusable towel. Significant backlash against product. Not environmentally friendly because single use. Not necessary because germs aren’t spread that easy, some say. Some say the box is ugly and they shouldn’t market it as flowing seamlessly with your décor. Many argue this is a case of lack of corporate social responsibility  
  • JULIE/AARON Commercial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TSX-mwWcPI4&feature=related Utilized the same tactics as a fashion brand Huggies is incorporating a mix of marketing elements that include fashion shows, celebrity partnerships, social media, public relations, digital and e-commerce partnerships, TV, mall and Internet advertising, as well as highly visible and unique in-store displays and cross promotions Popular commercials and print campaigns portrayed a baby as a model. Launch event in NYC on May 20 th babies modeling hosted by celeb and mom Rebecca Romijn Invited bloggers and their children to attend the event and take part in it. Led to many blog posts about the event and the product. Used celebrities like Kendra Wilkinson and Carnie Wilson to promote product on Facebook. Social media Most of the buzz on twitter is people thinking jean diapers are weird or silly, or commenting on the commercial, which most people love. Diaper event at select Toys R Us stores Promoted through Huggies Facebook as a Facebook event June 12 from 12pm to 3pm to celebrate the new diapers. Special giveaways, coupons, and more. Huggies Jean Diapers came to the US in 2010 after international success over the past few years first launched in Israel in 2007 Have been a success in more than 20 countries around the world including Russia, South Korea, Mexico, Singapore and many more. Huggies tagline: "The coolest you'll look pooping your pants." More toned down version for some networks: “When you gotta go, go in style.” Were only available for a limited time, so Huggies focused on getting the word out through mommy bloggers and Facebook pages for in-store events.

  • JULIE/AARON Starbucks Via taste challenge video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFvaXXFrg-E Single largest marketing push in company history.

Marketed as “magical” and “revolutionary” by Steve Jobs Launch event San Francisco January 27, 2010 Apple showed a video of people using the device, and a series of images of the iPad dominating the company's home page.

Media Placements in week prior to launch Apple lent out review units of the iPad to outlets that don’t typically receive pre-releases from Cupertino, such as BoingBoing and PC Mag.

Modern Family on ABC A large portion of the plot revolved around the father, Phil Dunphy, desperately wanting an iPad and his family’s bumbling attempts to actually land him one. And lest there be any confusion, the episode went full force in its description of the device Clever and strategic seamlessly integrated into the plot the show’s audience is the kind of people who Apple wants to target. Steven Colbert showcased an iPad and used it to cut up salsa David Letterman devoted an entire Top 10 list to the iPad titled, “Top 10 questions to ask yourself before waiting in line for the iPad.” Former SNL vet Jimmy Fallon and Engadget editor Joshua Topolsky   played with an iPad on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Friday night, the day before launch.

  • JULIE/AARON By Bruce Horovitz, USA TODAY A nation swimming in new products with sea salt is about to get the clincher: sea salt fries. On Thursday, November 10 th , Wendy's will unveil Natural-Cut Sea Salt Fries — revamped french fries of 100% russet potatoes, cut with the skin on, sprinkled with sea salt. The move comes as sea salt has set consumer hearts aflutter and invaded American pantries. In 2010, 1,350 new products with sea salt as an ingredient have been introduced, research giant Mintel says. The percentage of all foods and beverages with sea salt jumped from 5% in 2006 to more than 8% in 2010, Mintel says. "Sea salt has the potential to grow as fast as low-carb did," says Lynn Dornblaser, new products guru at Mintel. "Hopefully, it won't decline as fast." Wendy's, which continues to lose share to McDonald's, is in the midst of a companywide move to stress the wholesomeness of its food. It opted to fix the fries by using better potatoes cut a new way — and sprinkled with sea salt. "Wendy's has never had the best french fry," concedes marketing chief Ken Calwell. "If it's not your strength, you can start with a clean sheet." Why sea salt? "There's a halo that goes with it. People associate it with good, natural things." They also link it with flavor. The typically bigger salt granules can add more flavor with less salt. Others in the sea salt fest: • Campbell. In 2006, it was among the first to begin using sea salt. It now sells 200 reduced-sodium products made with sea salt, spokesman John Faulkner says. • Whole Foods. In the past year, its 365 Everyday Value house brand launched a wave of products with sea salt — from nuts to potato chips. It also encourages suppliers to use sea salt because its customers prefer it, spokeswoman Liz Burkhart says. • Target. The discounter uses sea salt in its Archer Farms store brand's Sea Salt, Caramel & Almond Indulgent Granola Bites. Nutritionist Marion Nestle is unimpressed, saying sea salt tastes the same as common table salt, costs more and has the same sodium. "The hype for sea salt is amazing. What a hoax." In Wendy's case, in fact, the new fries have more sodium: 270 milligrams per small order, up from 180. The large has 630, up from 460. "If Wendy's customers care," Nestle says, "they will have even more trouble reducing their sodium intake." But Calwell says the key point is that they taste better: "It's all about the food."
