  • 12. © 2013, Internet Marketing, Professor Janghyuk Lee 1212 Internet Marketing Activities Recent Interest – Bohae Moon  As described at market situation-Soju, Sales of bohae soju is limited at Jeolla-Do.  Channels for alcohol sales are 1)Supply to pub or bar, and 2) to small-middle size or supermarket.  To extend its business, Bohae started to have Interest in soju sales in capital area And Seoul.  For this reason, Bohae launched Bohae Moon and Bohae Gang at DEC/2011, which are made with Single spirit - Sugar cane.  Unique Selling Proposition of those products are „Easy to drink and less hangover‟.  But with only competitiveness of product, Bohae cannot compete with other competitors because its products are not well known to people who live in capital area.

  • 14. © 2013, Internet Marketing, Professor Janghyuk Lee 14 Bohae Moon After healing campaign was launched, Visitors over 120M. Diffused efficiently through web in spite of strict regulation for alcohol ad. Campaign Results • Start: June 14, 2012 • Via Web platform – www.bohaemoon.com • Provide interactive experience and healing service Through simulation game with top actress Han Ga-In • Website + SNS link + QR code + Phone number Approximately 2 months in: • Website Visitors : over 55M after 1 month, and Over 120M after approximately 2 months • The frequency of Daum search : Over market leader‟s product search, and its main product Search
  • 15. © 2013, Internet Marketing, Professor Janghyuk Lee 1515 Bohae Moon Key Idea 1: Experience – Interaction To give users special experience, Bohae implemented 1)Interactive marketing.  Bohae built up Bohae moon‟s own website separated from company‟s website.  By visiting this website, users can play simulation game with Korea‟s top actress Han Ga-In.  While playing this simulation, users can talk with Ga-In, and drink „Moon‟ together. Ga-in‟s reaction can be different depending on users‟ answer to question.  This is called interactive marketing, because delivering information is not one- way any more, instead users can feel as they are interacting with Ga-In.
  • 16. © 2013, Internet Marketing, Professor Janghyuk Lee 1616 Bohae Moon Key Idea 2: Experience - Healing The concept of this special experience is 2)Healing.  „Healing‟ process consists of three parts, 1)Alcohol for healing „Moon‟, 2)Place for healing „Web platform- Virtual Bar‟, and 3)Human for healing „Ga-In‟.  During the whole process of this program, healing person „Ga-In‟ is concerned about users‟ feeling and tries to treat users‟ worry by recommending „Moon‟ in virtual bar.  Additionally, Ga-In also recommends music sets, which are good for healing mind.  Furthermore, if users click the button „I feel good today‟, Ga-In is going to recommend music set which is appropriate for good mood.
  • 17. © 2013, Internet Marketing, Professor Janghyuk Lee 1717 Bohae Moon Key Idea 3: Experience - Fun In addition to Healing experience, Bohae moon offers 3)fun experience.  While playing this simulation, users can write down their own words on virtual bar‟s wall.  While writing down on the wall, users can read what other people have wrote and can communicate with them.  Bohae moon also offers tarot card readings through its web platform to maximize users‟ utility.  Through those services, users can be immersed in this simulation and enjoy this.
  • 18. © 2013, Internet Marketing, Professor Janghyuk Lee 1818 Bohae Moon Key Idea 4: Ubiquitous Users can connect with Bohae Moon by using diverse platforms- 1)Youtube.  Bohae Moon made Busker-Busker‟s music video to advertise it‟s product „Moon‟.  Busker-Busker‟s „Yeosu Night Sea‟ was one of popular music and Yeosu was the center of attention because of Yeosu Expo when they started this advertisement, and this was good match to Bohae, because Bohae originated in Jeolla-Do.  To distribute this music video, Bohae used Youtube as a platform to overcome regulation for alcohol advertisement and make self-diffusion.  This music video can be exposed to cinema screen and karaoke in spite of regulation, because this is classified as an Music contents.
  • 19. © 2013, Internet Marketing, Professor Janghyuk Lee 1919 Bohae Moon Key Idea 4: Ubiquitous Users can connect with Bohae Moon by using diverse platforms- 2)Facebook and 3)Twitter. 1 1  Bohae Moon is actively using SNS such as Facebook and Twitter to communicate with potential customers.  Bohae keeps doing various events to make people recognize „Moon‟ through SNS.  Even though people can find „Moon‟ in major supermarkets, have difficulty in finding „Moon‟ at pubs. To improve this situation, Bohae collects information about customers‟ needs through SNS, and put its products at customers‟ hangouts at first.
  • 20. © 2013, Internet Marketing, Professor Janghyuk Lee 2020 Bohae Moon Key Idea 4&5: Ubiquitous and easy to use Bohae Moon‟s web platform can be accessed through 4)Mobile platform, so overcome locational constraint, and secure 30-45 segment.  Bohae Moon not only uses QR code or color code, but also uses mobile phone number to offer their program to customer everywhere.  Traditional target customer segment for So-ju is 30-45 years old male customer. But this hybrid marketing way such as QR code is hard to use for this segment.  To overcome this constraint, Bohae Moon uses phone number. By calling this number, users can talk with Ga-In and automatically be connected to Bohae Moon‟s web platform by touching SMS from Ga-In after talking.
  • 21. © 2013, Internet Marketing, Professor Janghyuk Lee 2121 Bohae Moon Key Idea 6: Collecting data Bohae Moon‟s web platform can collect customer base data naturally.  While playing this simulation, users are going to be asked their personal information naturally.  Ga-In wants to know users‟ phone number, so Bohae can secure customer base Information through this process.  To write down your own words on virtual bar, users are required to put their personal information or make connection to their own FB page.
  • 22. © 2013, Internet Marketing, Professor Janghyuk Lee 2222 Bohae Moon Indicators for ripple effect of Bohae Moon web platform Just after its campaign, the number of visitors to its web platform and frequency of search „Bohae Moon‟ dramatically increased.  According to press and Bohae, the number of visitors to its web platform during 6/14 – 7/25 was over 120M, and visitors per day was approximately 3M.  The frequency of search „Bohae Moon‟ through search engine „Daum‟ exceeded market leader‟s product-Chameesul‟s search frequency and Bohae‟s other main product-Bokbunzaju‟s search frequency just after its campaign started even though Moon was new product.
  • 23. © 2013, Internet Marketing, Professor Janghyuk Lee 2323 Bohae Moon Indicators for ripple effect of Bohae moon‟s FB and Twitter Bohae Moon actively uses SNS such as FB and Twitter and keep in touch with heavy users.  According to Facebook Statistics, the number of people who like Bohae Moon‟s FB page is 982, and talk about this is 144.

  • 25. © 2013, Internet Marketing, Professor Janghyuk Lee 2525 Bohae Moon To be & Introspection Bohae Moon should keep using SNS actively to secure their loyal customers and keep trying to be exposed to them.  To wrap up, Bohae Moon did not only use website platform, but also tried to combine different types of channels. For example, Bohae Moon made an effort to use its website for main service and archiving, and also use twitter and facebook to diffuse information.  However, as described above, the frequency of Bohae moon‟s interaction through FB is dramatically decreasing.  In order to secure their loyal customers and their market share in Seoul, Bohae moon should keep in touch with their customers, keep creating and maintaining profitable relationship and actively use SNS pages to be exposed to them.  Even though Bohae Moon used the popularity of „Yeosu Night Sea‟ and Ga-In, the number of hit of this video is lower than the number of hit of live video of same singer. Bohae Moon should have done more active promotion!

  • 188. © 2013, Internet Marketing, Professor Janghyuk Lee 188 An eye on the market : France French Hairdressing Market The hairdressing sector in France is very comp etitive. Hairdresser franchises represent the s mallest share of the market with only 10%. Eac h salons must invest in marketing strategy to di fferentiate from the concurrence. Hairdressing market is estimated at 5,35 billio n € per year. 1 million peoples go to a hairdr esser by day in France. Although independent hairdressers dominate t he market by the number, consumers need to be reassured and he or she prefers to go to a s alon which he or she recognizes the brand. It i s an undeniable advantage for franchises. For 10 years now, independents are under pressur e to become franchisee. The new issue of major franchises such as De ssange, Franck Provost and Jean Louis David is to control the market. Their marketing strate gy is essential to retain consumers who are jus t waiting to be convinced.

It is clear the USA is the place to be for t he French hairdressing brand. According a recent report, it is exactly th e Dessange International strategy. The group led by Benjamin Dessange, the fo under's son, has acquired the investme nt fund Pouschine Cook Capital Manage ment hairdressers Fantastic Sams, for u ndisclosed amount.

  • 190. © 2013, Internet Marketing, Professor Janghyuk Lee 190 Company Introduction What is Dessange? Dessange is an hairdresser french brand, one of the most luxurious. It is addressed t o an high incomes population, or people w ho gives a big importance to hair care. We can qualify it as a prestigious brand on the French market. Jacques Dessange opened his first salon in 1954, on the Champs-Elysée Avenue, i n Paris. He offered to women revolutionary haircutting techniques and reinvented the i mage of the modern woman, in the post-w ar atmosphere. The professionalism and the pioneering sp irit explained the fulgurating success of De ssange House. Jacques Dessange opened its first salon a broad in 1962 and launched his affiliate fra nchise in 1975. Now, Dessange group count 500 salons in 45 countries around the world. Others french hairdresser companies ta ke their inspiration in Dessange‟s collec tions and follow the Dessange trend. It has a really important part in the fashio n world. The brand has kept its innovative spirit and has imposed its own style with som e essential techniques like the famous “ coiffé-décoiffé” Dessange or the blond Dessange, used now by the concurrenc e. The brand takes care of the biggest sta rs and it is the official partner, among ot hers, of Cannes Film Festival for more t han 25 years, now. It could be interesting to see how a fam ous and innovative brand like Dessang e, consider as trendsetter by its compet itor, uses internet to manage its marketi ng strategy. Especially for a sector whic h is not really represented yet on Intern et, that of the hair. Coiffé-Décoiffé DESSANGE
  • 191. © 2013, Internet Marketing, Professor Janghyuk Lee 191 Dessange‟s Business Units Haircut experience The first activity of Dessange is to provide a qualitative hairdresser service. Customers go into a Dessange‟s salon because they want have professional advices for their hair, a new haircut they will love and they expect a professional team to take care of them. First of all, Dessange sells its haircut how-know and techniques, its trendy vision and its prestige. Dessange created an atmosphere in its salons. It is the same in every salon around the world, specific t o the brand, sober, class and elegant with black and white colors. I ts volunteer is to offer a real consumption experience to its clients and no just an haircut. Professional quality at home To expand the brand and achieve more consumers, Dessange devel oped a series of products for hair care which are available in all salons and also in supermarket (shampoo, hair care, hair brush …). This is the way for the brand to diversify its customer. It is th e means to customers to replicate the Dessange‟s experience k nown in salon and the Dessange‟s professional quality at home. We find this idea even in Dessange‟s slogan : “All the Dessan ge‟s professional quality at home”. Dessange’s training ant haircut techniques Last Dessange activity, it sells training for professionals. It promotes its innovative spirit and its trendy vision. The objective is to increase professional’s number who use Dessange’s technique and open more Dessange’s salons.

  • 193. © 2013, Internet Marketing, Professor Janghyuk Lee 193 Marketing Activities What kind of communication? It is very common to see a Dessange‟s advertise ment on the French television. These ads show Dessange‟s hair products and through its, Dessa nge‟s quality and technique that everybody can fi nd in a salon. It is not uncommon either to see a dvertising posters in the street, introducing news products. But Dessange is an international group, with 500 salons in 45 countries. The group needs to have a global marketing strategy. The best way to har monize its communication around the world and become as famous as in France abroad is to hav e a strong internet marketing strategy. After some basic researches on the web, we can do an initial inventory is as follows : Dessange ha s 4 different websites, a presence on social netw orks and video websites and an application for iP hone and iPad.
  • 194. © 2013, Internet Marketing, Professor Janghyuk Lee 194194 www.dessange.com We find all informations about the history, vision and what kind of brand it believes to be. We also find the new collection, applications to have a personal hair diagnostic and its partnerships. But it is especially possible to make the newsletter registration to receive it by email, complete an employment's application, buy some hair products and find the address of a salon on line! The problem is all website is in French and any translation is proposed. Second problem, we do not find some links to be redirected to Dessange’s pages on social networks like Facebook or Twitter. In addition, we can say that the site is long at startup The site’s appearance is entirely in the style of the brand: sober, class and elegant. After surfing on the different pages during 5 minutes, we can admit the site is developed.
  • 195. © 2013, Internet Marketing, Professor Janghyuk Lee 195195 www.dessange-international.com The second website is for an international audience, with English and French version. As the first one, the appearance is a good reflect of the brand. There is more information about the brand, the group, its internal organization, its international presence, its training, its franchisees, its products, its press articles or its salons around the world. This site is clearly aimed at an audience who does not know the brand yet. It is dedicated to an more professional audience too (future potential international franchisees). As the first website, we can buy hair products on line but Dessange’s collections are not presented. In the site, we can not find some links to be redirected to social networks neither.
  • 196. © 2013, Internet Marketing, Professor Janghyuk Lee 196196 www.secrets-dessange.com This website targets French females (the website is just in French) and is designed to present the brand but mainly its range of products and give some advices in hair care. The site’s name evokes we will learn Dessange’s secrets to sublime our hair. A form is available to establish an hair diagnostic. It is really complete and at the end, the site proposes to buy directly on line the different products necessary to follow all advices given before. The site proposes also some videos where professional hairdressers show how execute classical and famous haircuts and it is possible to watch some advertising movies. This web site is a complement of www.dessange.com and www.dessange-international.com .
  • 197. © 2013, Internet Marketing, Professor Janghyuk Lee 197197 www.e-dessange.com This website is the Dessange’s online store. Once again, it is just in French and any translation in English is available. It’s possible to find and buy all products of the brand : shampoo, hair care, hairdryer and even Dessange’ make-up. All purchase proposals on the tree others sites are just a link to be redirected to this one. The customer can find all promotions and create his or her personal count. The site even propose to be in the “club Dessange” and thus benefit some advantages (promotions, exclusive products, news about hair trend and the brand by email…).
  • 198. © 2013, Internet Marketing, Professor Janghyuk Lee 198198 iPhone & iPad Application Dessange is the official partner of Cannes Film Festival for more than 25 years now. On the occasion of the 64th Edition, in 2011, Dessange launched its new application for iPhone and iPad. It is the way for all beauty and fashion fans to be aware of new trends. Thanks to this application, it is possible to know the new collection Dessange, find a salon and follow stars activities during the Festival. This application is free and was really successful since its inception. It was a good opportunities for Dessange to assert itself again like an essential brand in the beauty and fashion field. This application is also a good way for Dessange to keep its trendy brand’s image. Especially now, where all trendsetter share fashion news and informations on the web (fashion blogs example).
  • 199. © 2013, Internet Marketing, Professor Janghyuk Lee 199199 YouTube Dessange has a YouTube channel where it posts group’s videos. It is DessangeParisTV. Just 5 videos are online and the most number of views are on the last collection making of on one of : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7t84km4b2Y4&feature=channel&list=UL (we can also find it in the website www.dessange.com). This video has just 1259 views, so in others words, almost nothing. The first one was posted in September 2012, really recently, so it can explain this number. The Dessange YouTube TV can be find thanks to videos shared on Facebook, but not just with the keyword “Dessange” in the YouTube search bar. Some others videos Dessange are on YouTube too but they are not posted by the group itself. Among them, some advertising videos and other customer testimonies or advices about Dessange hair products. It is a real referencing problem if we can find the official brand channel just by typing Dessange as a keyword in the search bar. And it is a real communication problem for the brand if the first image we have about Dessange on a website like YouTube is not under the group’s control. On the rest of the Web…In addition to its own websites, the brand Dessange is also represented in several others social networks or video sites.
  • 200. © 2013, Internet Marketing, Professor Janghyuk Lee 200200 On the rest of the Web… Facebook The group has an official “fan page” on Facebook, created in March 2010, where all Dessange’s activities, videos, partnerships, events or news are shared. A new activity is frequently posted (about 2 by week). But the page is not really elaborated and just 1918 peoples “like” it. Some fashion bloggers fan pages (not official brand) have more options (contests, animation…) and many more “likes”. At the same time, we can also find a lot of other fan pages with the keyword “Dessange”. After more investigation, the finding is simple : each franchisee creates its own page on Facebook. The fans number is less than the official page and often, very limited information are shared. It is really difficult for the brand to regroup all Dessange’s customers and create a real communities because they are dispersed between different pages created by salon or by country. In addition to its own websites, the brand Dessange is also represented in several others social networks or video sites.
  • 201. © 2013, Internet Marketing, Professor Janghyuk Lee 201201 On the rest of the Web…In addition to its own websites, the brand Dessange is also represented in several others social networks or video sites. Twitter Almost 10 different counts with the keyword “Dessange” and impossible to see, on the surface, which one is the “official”. In fact, for half of Dessange twitter counts, the description could be the one written by the group to present the brand. The only solution is to check which website is in reference and find www.dessange.com. After more investigation, which surprise when we can see the difference between the number of tweets, followers and followings. To better understand the situation, we have on the left side some example what can be found on Twitter with the keyword “Dessange”. The first one (DESSANGE Paris) is the official count, the second one (Dessange Paris) is the one of a salon in Vienna, the third one (Dessange Bahrain) is the one of a salon in Bahrain and the last one (쟈 고고 데 상 쥬) is for all salons in Korea (about 20). Counts which represent just one or few salons have more followers than the official one. In this case, it is totally impossible for the customer to know which he or she should follow and just give an unorganized image of the brand.
  • 202. © 2013, Internet Marketing, Professor Janghyuk Lee 202202 The hidden side of the iceber g After making the facebook and twitter counts inv entory, we can see all the website given in refer ence are totally different than “official” ones. Actually, each franchisee made and animate no w his or her own website. We can count on at least 10 other websites Des sange, in addition to the fourth official one anim ate by the headquarter of the company, seen be fore. It was impossible to find them with the keyword “ Dessange” in the Google search bar. The only w ay was thanks to Facebook and Twitter. It is just impossible for the customer to clearly fi nd what he or she is looking for. Dessange can not create a real customer community if all of th em are totally dispersed between different sites. On the rest of the Web…In addition to its own websites, the brand Dessange is also represented in several others social networks or video sites.
  • 203. © 2013, Internet Marketing, Professor Janghyuk Lee 203203 Against Direct Competition : Franck Provost To better understand what is possible in terms of internet marketing strategy, taking the ex ample of Franck Provost, one of the first direct competitor Dessange. It is also a famous Fr ench hairdresser who offers the same services and products than Dessange. They target t he same customer, and both are present in meditated events. Both ot them are popular wit h stars. Both brands were created at about the same time and both have an equivalent pre sence in France and abroad. Here is the graph showing the research done on Google from 2005 to 2012 Dessange and Franck Provost. The blue color represents those made for Dessange and the red one, thos e made​for Franck Provost. A wide range of keyword has been taken into account for both of them. We can see a significant difference between two of them. Franck Provost accumulated alm ost double the research done for Dessange.
  • 204. © 2013, Internet Marketing, Professor Janghyuk Lee 204204 Against Direct Competition : Franck Provost When we look closer to see who make the research, we can see in France, b oth brands are elbow to elbow. Everything plays abroad.
  • 205. © 2013, Internet Marketing, Professor Janghyuk Lee 205205 Against Direct Competition : Franck Provost Just one web site with the link to the Facebook page, the Twitter account, the Youtube channel and an English version. On Facebook and Twitter, we can find others pages and accounts Franck Provost than the official one but all under the control of the brand. All of them have the same design and the only distinction is made By the country (for example ”Franck Provost Spain” for all salons in Spain). It has more than 50000 ”likes” on Facebook (page created at the same time than Dessange’s one, 1000 followers on Twitter and 360 000 views on Youtube. It is organized and elaborated, the customer is guided, And it gives a professional image of the brand.
  • 206. © 2013, Internet Marketing, Professor Janghyuk Lee 206206 Against Direct Competition : Franck Provost The difference in financial results between the two brand is significant. This could explain the difference in marketing strategy investment. But when we know Dessange is able to put more than 50 000 € in a new collection shooting that will only last one season, we can still ask if the brand can make an effort in its internet strategy. We can also take the problem in the other way and wonder if it is in part thanks to its internet strategy that Franck Provost records this results.
  • 207. © 2013, Internet Marketing, Professor Janghyuk Lee 207207 Conclusions & Recommendations After have a look around the web to establish the Dessange‟s internet mark eting strategy diagnosis, the first thing to say is everything remains to be do ne. Some good ideas are there : site web's aspect (really class and elegant), sit e web's elaboration (opportunity to buy on line, to find a salon, to subscribe t o the newsletter and receive by mail, advice videos, forms to know what kin d of hair we have and which product we should buy), application for iPhone and iPad. But it is not enough to compensate the lack of organization in the web presence. First of all, 4 official websites is the best way to lose the customer from the s tart. Dessange should focus only on one site and organize differently to intro duce all the information it considers essential to represent the brand. Then, on its official website, Dessange should add an English version if it w ants to claim as an international group and achieve an international audienc e. The customers is lazy, he or she doesn‟t spend too many time to find wha t he or she wants. If he or she needs to check 3 different websites to finally f ind what exactly he or she was looking for, it will give a bad image of the bra nd and maybe influence the purchase decision.
  • 208. © 2013, Internet Marketing, Professor Janghyuk Lee 208208 Conclusions & Recommendations Dessange should also add links on the first page of its website to be redirected to Facebook, Twitter an d even Youtube. Now, it is easier to broaden its customer through social networks. Peoples go on Dess ange website if they are looking for this brand or something really close to. But they can fall on Faceboo k or Twitter pages by chance. It should organize Facebook and Twitter to be sure customers do not be confuse. One page on Facebo ok and one count on Twitter is the best, and with all information in English if they want achieve an intern ational audience. It can post all comments both in English and in French, it is not a problem. Social netw orks are the best to create a real community and widen new customers. Especially with the fulgurate em ergence of beauty, trend and fashion blogs. Today, fashion new trends begin in the street and are imme diately posted on the web. Dessange should do the same to keep this pioneering and trendsetter spirit. About Youtube, it should optimize the search engine like Youtube offers its videos in first choice. Finally, Dessange should establish a clear marketing policy with its franchisees to avoid each entity crea tes its own web presence with a website, a Facebook fanpage and a Twitter count. For this kind of bran d that sells beauty and appearance, it is essential to take care of its own image on the web. Dessange should need to pay attention as its presence on the web as its collections and its salon‟s atm osphere because internet is become the new customer showcase. If the Dessange Internet strategy was a collection picture, we could say about it, despite the make-up effort, the haircut has 3 years late and some strands of hair exceed.
