Some key China Clients
Case Study: Chivas
In their quest for success Chinese consumers are losing control over their personal lives. Life has become a struggle and a strain. They need to be inspired to get more from their lives (to enjoy a fuller life).
Premium bai jiu appeals to older, more conservative Chinese consumers.
These consumers are focused on heritage and successful brands are able to deliver high ‘face value’. And thus bai jiu is drunk at traditional events and used for business entertainment.
Chivas realised that in order to succeed in China the brand had to become relevant for a more international and experimental consumer.
The strategy was therefore to deliver “this is the Chivas life” experientially and build relevance around the ATL campaign
In addition to increasing market share, key success indicators for Chivas in China were expanding distribution in the on-trade market while reinforcing trade loyalty within existing distribution
This is not surprising given that over the party period same outlets sales increased by an average of 433%

Beer Brand Communication Competition Analysis
Refreshing the common characters which all beer brands share in common The copy of “Refreshing” by competitors themselves has strengthened these concept, however,on the other hand, reduced the emotional impact to consumers . Would it be called beer if it’s not refreshing?
Refreshing as a brand personality cannot be owned by any one of the brand Refreshing is not just for beer. Any products which contains peppermint or thirsty-relief are all refreshing. Refreshing itself cannot touch consumers’ heart anymore. Every products which can be refreshing are all focus on communicate it’s refreshing .
All beer brands seeks a different personality to represent a group or situation in communication Snowbeer - listeners to citizens’ words of hearts. Snowbeer knows your words of hearts and cheers up for you. Reeb - Shanghainese Reeb know well about Shanghai and Shanghainese. Reeb knows why you like Shanghai. Budweiser - happy time celebrators Chinese like to get together with friends and relatives. Budweiser is a good choice which gives you face. A FMCG brand which fractionize the market segmentation by specific target and situation will only have a smaller market share.
Beer brands ranked by price and distribution channels price image Every brand positioning itself by it’s price and distribution channels. The higher price, more premier it is. Vise versa. Those 3 brands who face mass consumers (Suntory, Reeb, Snow)all have a series of products which could meet the needs of different price and market demand. From consumers’ perspective, it add the difficult of make choice, thus lost the brand loyalty.
This is a seriously assimilated and fractionized market…
Refreshing becomes the common character
Smiliar products and prices confused the consumers
Different product image set a limitation to certain target market and drinking situation.
Price and distribution channels has further departed the market segmentation.
