  • Hey welcome to the Levi’s team!
  • The facts
  • Current target
  • This definition really resonates with our target market, who are…
  • We originally took off because of those functional benefits, mainly durability.
  • And we’ve stuck around because of the emotional benefits
  • The brand identity communicates values and resonates as a personality
  • Which all define us to our audience. This is who we really are.
  • And our consumers find that we meet their expectations with competitive advantages
  • We have really diversified our product and prices over the years
  • And the price is right! We’ve got something for everyone and we’re not too cheap or too expensive.
  • There are also uncertainties in the market and many factors that can negatively influence sales.Sources: http://academic.mintel.com/display/640848/ http://www.cambodiadaily.com/news/despite-denials-levis-still-producing-at-sl-garment-factory-47389/ http://www.thenation.com/article/161057/wikileaks-haiti-let-them-live-3-day# http://blogs.sfweekly.com/thesnitch/2012/12/greenpeace_mannequins_protest.phphttp://www.intracen.org/itc/publications/publications-catalogue/?taxid=2270
  • We also have a lot of competition
  • And when Levi’s has previously thought about overcoming the competition by diversifying, it has lost sight of its brand, or it’s already been done.
  • Things we considered but didn’t go with
  • Additionally, as you can see, the denim market is very crowded
  • Very very crowded.
  • But Levi’s does have a huge opportunity in the urban market!
  • This consumer has been left out of the strategy for many brands of Levi’s size, but this is perfect for this all American brand.Sources: http://s3.amazonaws.com/thearf-org-aux-assets/downloads/cnc/multicultural/2007-02-07_ARF_Multicultural_OMobolade.pdfhttp://academic.mintel.com/display/637776/ http://academic.mintel.com/display/640861/
  • Urban target
  • So we recommend Levi’s build on their legacy by reaching a new market, which will double as a differentiation strategy for them. It’s a win win!
  • What do you think?

    10. 10. We are the embodiment of the energy and events of our time, inspiring people from all walks of life with a pioneering spirit. Generations have worn Levi’s® jeans, turning them into a symbol of freedom and self-expression in the face of adversity, challenge and social change. Our customers forged a new territory called the American West. They fought in wars for peace. They instigated counterculture revolutions. They tore down the Berlin Wall. Reverent, irreverent — they took a stand. It is our belief that American ingenuity never fades. That hard work, creativity, freedom, and self-expression never go out of style. This ingenuity and work ethic has changed society on a global scale, but also at the street level, helping our customers revolutionize the way that they are seen and heard. So every day we want to inspire creativity, to support all movements, and to make the American dream come true again, and again, and again.
