Current brand + Needs of new target ------------------------ Competitive white spaceInstructors: Eric Solomon (Venables Bell & Partners) Elisha Greenwell (Wieden + Kennedy)
Brand Strategy: Jack Link’s Portion ControlStrategic Challenge Jack Link’s Portion Control is a healthy beef jerky snack that contains only 100 calo- ries in each package. Jack Link’s is doing a great job with their current Sasquatch campaign and is in the current leader in the beef jerky market. According to the survey, people recognized Jack Link’s simply because of their Sasquatch campaign. Problem: However the meat snack has a small market share in comparison with other snacks, making up only 2% of the total market. Although Jack Link’s Sasquatch campaign is extremely successful, their commercials mainly market to young males. To increase their market share, Jack Link’s should also market to other audiences.Who is the new audience and what are they like? What is the roleof the brand in their lives?The audience should be moms with children between the ages of 5 and 16.They value convenience, price and health, all of which are strong equities thatJack Link’s can leverage in order to communicate to this new market. However,most moms have a misconception about beef jerky snacks being unhealthy. Too Unhealthy Much Sodium <Moms incorrectly view Beef Jerky as unhealthy>
Moms’ Top Priorities “ Convenience “ Parents typically look to themselves when it comes down to the ultimate responsibility for their children’s health. 29 Convenience “ Health 47 Price 24 Health targeted as never before by marketing and “ Childhood obesity is a serious and escalat- ing public health concern, yet children are high-calorie, nutritionally deficient foods. PriceWhy should people believe it?Promoting Jack Link’s (JL) beef jerky as a healthy snack is not going to be enough toseparate them from their market competitors. What JL can leverage in their marketingcampaign is “portion control’, which no other competitors in the market are doing. Ofall the things moms’ value most in a snack, portion control is the most credible for us.• The product is affordable• The product is pre-packaged, which makes it very easy to pack in a kid’s lunch.• Portion Control packs contain only 100 calories.• Jack Link’s Beef Jerky is a leaner form of protein.• Jack Link’s is a healthier, longer-lasting alternative to other salty snacks like chips, which don’t fill you up the way beef jerky can.• Jack Link’s Beef Jerky is low is carbs, unlike other salty snacks.• Sodium provides a good source of electrolytes, which all active kids need.
If Jack Link’s was a car... Too Manly Just Right: Too Mom-ish cool and edge but also safeSo, Jack Link’s is... Too Unhealthy Just Right: Too Healthy cool packaging and good taste but also healthy
Big Idea “ “ Jack Link’s Portion Control is a new revolutionary snack that toughen up your kid’s health.How and where are we going to bring this to life? • The product should undergo a packaging change that appeals more to moms but also maintains the edginess of the current packaging/ marketing so as not to loose appeal to current market and to gain appeal with kids. • The product should be re-positioned in the grocery aisles near healthier snacks such as nuts, protein bars, etc. • TV, print, and Internet are all valid media through which we can reach moms. Consider mom blogs when targeting the online audience.What does success look like?1. Moms start buying Jack Link’s for their kids.2. Kids start asking moms to buy Jack Link’s.3. Moms start buying it for themselves.4. An overall shift in consumer perception of beef jerky occurs, causing other companies to follow suit.ToneThe campaign should communicate to moms by educating them about beef jerky’s assets but it should not takeon a typical “mom” tone. We need to find a balance between the edginess of the current campaign/consumerperception and the mom commercial so that we effectively communicate to moms without turning kids off to theproduct or alienating the current market.
