  3. 3. ADVERTISING & MARKETING RESEARCH - 2011-2012 OLAYIntroductionOlay is an American skin care line. It is one of the top skin careretail brands in the world, except for Japan, and is oneof Procter & Gambles multi-billion dollar brands. For the 2009fiscal year ended June 30, Olay accounted for an estimated$2.8 billion of P&Gs $79 billion in revenue.Olay originated in South Africa as Oil of Olay. Graham Wuff(1916-2008), an ex-Unilever chemist from Durban, started it in1949. The name "Oil of Olay" was chosen by Wuff as a spin onthe word "lanolin", a key ingredient.Olay is a product truly born from love, as it was created by aman as a gift for his wife. Graham Wuff saw his wife Dinah’sfrustration with thick, waxy beauty creams that came in shoe-polish tins. They left her skin looking greasy, and they certainlydidn’t fit with her feminine sensibility. Graham wanted tocreate a new beauty product for her- one that could not onlymoisturize her skin, but also leave her feeling beautiful andfeminine.Together, Graham and Dinah fine-tuned everything fromabsorption and texture to the delicate pink shade and instantly 3
  4. 4. ADVERTISING & MARKETING RESEARCH - 2011-2012 OLAYrecognizable fragrance. At last, legendary oil of Olay BeautyFluid was born.With this formula complete and first batch mixed by hand,Graham enlisted the help of an advertising agency that hefounded in the yellow pages. Account Executive Jack Lowequickly became Graham’s lifelong friend and business partner,and the two soon created a company to produce and marketOil of Olay.Olays marketing was also unique, since it was never describedas a moisturizer, or even as beauty fluid. Nowhere on thepackaging did it say what the product actually did. Printadverts used copy such as “Share the secret of a youngerlooking you” and talked about the ‘beauty secret’ of oil ofOlay. Other adverts were written as personal messages to thereader from a fictitious advice columnist named MargaretMerrill. They ran in Readers’ Digest and newspapers and oftenlooked like editorials.Wuff and Lowe, who ran the company under the banner ofAdams National Industries (ANI), did not sell the product tothe trade, but waited for pharmacies to ask for it based onconsumer requests.As the company began to market the product internationally,it was decided to modify the name of the product in eachcountry so it would sound pleasing and realistic to consumers. 4
  5. 5. ADVERTISING & MARKETING RESEARCH - 2011-2012 OLAYThis led to the introduction of Oil of Ulay (UK and Ireland), Oilof Ulan (Australia) and Oil of Olaz (France, Italy,the Netherlands and Germany). In 1970, ANI opened a testmarket in USA (Chicago), and was expanding into northernGermany.Within five years, Olay was phenomenal success in SouthAfrica, and in 1959 expanded into England, the United States,the Netherlands, Canada and Germany. Needless to say, theOlay business flourished. Eventually, Olay was sold toRichardson Merrill, which later became Richardson-Vicks Inc.RVI capitalized the "Oil" and added the sub-name "BeautyFluid" to help protect the trade mark. They further added asales force and created TV advertising. The company extendedthe product range to include items such as Night of Ulay andBeauty Cleanser, and expanded into more countries (Spain,France, Germany).The result of Richardson Merrell’s effortswas a dramatic increase in sales. However, as with manybrands, the business was not managed uniformly so therewere differences in performance between the countries. Olayproduces best results. In 1985, Procter & Gamble bought Richardson Vicks andgained the Olay brand. P&G greatly expanded Olay both inline-up and internationally. Olay became one of P&G’s billiondollar brands in 2003. Since then, the range has beenexpanded to include a full range of hypoallergenic variants, 5
  6. 6. ADVERTISING & MARKETING RESEARCH - 2011-2012 OLAYcleansers and creams with the aim of meeting the full range ofskincare needs, whatever the users age or skin type. Thebrand also includes soap, and body wash. Olay Cosmetics waslaunched in 1996 but discontinued in 2001.Name changeIn 1999, it was decided to unify the brand under a globalname. Thus, Oil of Ulan and Ulay became Olay on a worldwidebasis, except in German-speaking regions and Italy, where itremained Oil of Olaz. In the Netherlands and Belgium, it wasrenamed just Olaz.In 2000, Procter & Gamble decided to shorten the brand nameto Olay. The formula had evolved over the years, and theoriginal name no longer fit with what women have to expectfrom Olay- a light, greaseless formula that absorbs quickly intothe skin.Today, Olay is one of the most recognizable brands in theworld. Yet through all the changes and innovations, thephilosophy upheld by Graham Wuff remains as relevant asever: Help women look and feel beautiful. That’s a potentformula for success.The Olay brand has expanded into a range of other productsgrouped in “boutiques” including Complete, Total Effects,Professional, Regenerist, Quench (North America), White 6
  7. 7. ADVERTISING & MARKETING RESEARCH - 2011-2012 OLAYRadiance (Asia) and Olay Vitamins (USA). Olay is the marketleader in many countries including USA, UK, and China. Olayhas extended its heritage as a moisturizer to stay lookingyoung, to formally creating the “anti-aging” category in massstores with the launch of Total Effects in 1999. ActiveHydrating Formula, generally the least expensive variety, bearsthe closest resemblance to the pink "Oil of Olay" marketed inthe US before the P&G acquisition. The launch was almostdouble the typical price of a mass market moisturizer at thetime. Today, there are numerous products in market moreexpensive than Olay.The Indian skincare market is constantly growing as can beseen in the figure: 7
  8. 8. ADVERTISING & MARKETING RESEARCH - 2011-2012 OLAYOlay Regenerist was the best performing anti-aging cream in a2006 test done by a consumer association. In August 2007,Olay was launched in India.Olay’s current slogan is "Challenge whats possible", which waschanged from "Love the skin youre in".Since 2010, "Oil of OLAZ" is called only "OLAZ" in German-speaking countries. Slogan: "Olaz läßt Sie strahlen." (lit: "Olazlets you shine.")The Olay/Olaz brand is known for animal testing, according toa list published by PETA. 8

The premium rangeincludes a cream and gel moisturizer along with an eye gel,cream, and a gel facial cleanser and a toner.The new age men are extremely active not only professionallybut even socially and hence, they are more consciousregarding their appearance. A well-groomed man comesacross as more confident, which in turn, escalates his overallperformance and professional growth. It is no more restrictedto merely, wearing stylish clothes coordinated with exclusivedesigner shoes and watches. Men are now, waking up to the 26
  27. 27. ADVERTISING & MARKETING RESEARCH - 2011-2012 OLAYdire requisite of personal grooming and thus, devotedlydedicating more time for skin care. A prominently defined skincare regime is an absolutely unique facet for men and it’s hightime indeed, they compulsively stopped using their wives ortheir girlfriend’s skin care products.The male skin is completely different from that of the femaleand therefore, they require specified products, which suit andcomplement their skin tones perfectly. Their skin is muchthicker in texture and owing to regular shaving; the pores areperennially exposed to dust and dirt. Their skin also looks oilierdue to the excess secretion of sebum and sweat. So it isessential for them to use such products that will address all ofthese concerns.The products are priced as under: Product Price Multi-Solution Revitalizing Cream (50g) Rs. 699 Cream Foaming Cleanser (100g) Rs. 399 Multi-Solution Eye Gel (15ml) Rs. 699 Balancing Gel Moisturizer (50g) Rs. 699 Oil Control Cleanser (100g) Rs. 399 Multi-Solution Refreshing Hydrating Toner (150ml) Rs. 699 27
  28. 28. ADVERTISING & MARKETING RESEARCH - 2011-2012 OLAY "Mens fairness creams constitute just a tenth of the segment. While it is an area which has potential, there are already a lot of options. The launch of another brand may not create any breakthroughs," commented an analyst. He compared the mens fairness segment with the deodorant market, which has seen many launchesafter the success of Axe, but have fragmented the sector,eating into each others revenues.P&Gs product has found its way to India after China. Thecompany also owns Gillette, which is a mens only brand, andit plans to add more products to its portfolio. Olay MensSolutions will see high-end marketing, as the products are inthe premium category.Emami was the first to target the metrosexual with "Fair andhandsome" five years ago. As the brand took off, there were 28
  29. 29. ADVERTISING & MARKETING RESEARCH - 2011-2012 OLAYback-to-back launches. Hindustan Unilever (HUL) went to themarket with "Fair and Lovely Menz Active", and then therewas "Nivea for Men", "Garnier Powerlight for Men" and"Vaseline Men". All of them have had significant sales, butEmami has stayed the leader.Emami reported sales of Rs125 Crore till December 2010,proof of its pioneering position and strength as an exclusivelymens brand, unlike the others who derive their strength fromtheir fairness products for women. "The brand is looking for asignificant value growth on its present base (26%- MAT onDecember 2010)," says an Emami spokesperson.The mens fairness cream market is estimated to be valued atRs300 Crore, but has seen a robust growth for most brands at25%-30%. By contrast, the huge Rs3, 000 Crore womensfairness cream market is growing at 10%-15% annually.The mens fairness sector is yet to realise its full potential, asmany men still use womens fairness creams. Emami says thatthere is a huge demographic to be tapped, with an estimatedsix to seven times more males using womens fairness creamthan males using mens only fairness creams."This is a lucrative area, but it really depends on the brandplacement," said an advertising company spokesperson. "Each 29
  30. 30. ADVERTISING & MARKETING RESEARCH - 2011-2012 OLAYbrand is appealing to a section of men and a new brand has tocreate its own niche to succeed. Pricing, too, becomesimportant because a majority of the customers go for productswhich offer value for money."Placing the brand under Saatchi and Saatchi:P&G has launched ‘Olay Total Effects’ with VitaNiacin thathelp fight the seven signs of skin ageing. The new product willsee Saatchi & Saatchi work on the creatives. Former MissUniverse and actress Sushmita Sen has been roped in asbrand ambassador for the newly launched ‘Olay Total Effects’in India. There will be two media agencies handling the mediaduties – Madison Media and Starcom MediaVest for mediabuying and planning, respectively.Vaishali Bhat, Associate Director, P&G India, commented,“Olay is a known skincare brand in the world’s fashioncapitals. With the launch of ‘Olay Total Effects’ withbreakthrough VitaNiacin complex, we are delighted toprovide every Indian woman with one product that helpsfight the seven signs of ageing. Hundreds of real consumersacross the world who put ‘Total Effects’ to the test havefallen in love with it. We are very excited about ‘Olay TotalEffects’ because we believe this product not only offers a 30
  31. 31. ADVERTISING & MARKETING RESEARCH - 2011-2012 OLAYnew equation of beauty by helping fight the seven signs ofageing, but also provides practical benefits like ease ofapplication and easy to carry.”Along with Sen as the brand ambassador, India’s otherleading beauty icons who have tried ‘Olay Total Effects’ andhave seen a visible difference in their skin, launched thebeauty product. They are celebrity hair stylists and beautyexperts Dilshad Pastakia and Coleen Khan Affonso, TV anchorand actor Tisca Chopra, health and wellness expert ShikhaSharma, economist and head of Future Trends (Future Group)Roopa Purshottaman, and fashion designer Anita Dongre. TheTVC of the new product will be soon released.Commenting on how the need for a one-stop skin careproduct has led her to endorsing ‘Olay Total Effects’, Sensaid, “Firstly, like Olay, I too believe that looking beautiful isone thing, but feeling beautiful is everything. This in-depthunderstanding of a woman inspired me to associate with‘Olay Total Effects’. Secondly, hectic schedules andcontinuous exposure to sunlight, air conditioned vans,pollution, HMI lights, heavy make-up, etc. had taken a toll onmy skin. Unfortunately, I do not have the luxury of lengthyskin care regimes. But thanks to regular usage of ‘Olay TotalEffects’, I can now fight the signs of ageing and get youngerlooking skin, all in one tiny bottle.” 31
  32. 32. ADVERTISING & MARKETING RESEARCH - 2011-2012 OLAYConsumer research conducted by P&G revealed that womentend to perceive only ‘fine lines and wrinkles’ as a sign of skinageing. But, the fact is that there are seven such signsincluding appearance of pores, age spots and uneven skintone, among others. The research also disclosed that veryfew women knew that the skin ageing process starts in theirmid-20s, and not in the late 30s, as most perceive it.The banned Olay commercial:A TV ad in which Eve Cameron, the beauty director of Shemagazine, promotes the "pent peptides" in Olay anti-ageingskin cream as "effective in reducing the appearance of linesand wrinkles" has been banned for being misleading. In the commercial, created by ad agency Saatchi & Saatchi, Cameron promotes Procter & Gambles Olay Regenerist skin care cream. She cites a study presented at the World Congress ofDermatology that she claims showed that pent peptidesreduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. 32
  33. 33. ADVERTISING & MARKETING RESEARCH - 2011-2012 OLAYHowever, the Advertising Standards Authority, which received46 complaints about the ad, ruled that viewers would beunfamiliar with the way scientific data was validated.So Camerons statement – that the study presented at theWCD showed pent peptides were effective – wouldmisleadingly encourage them to believe that the findings weresupported by "a large scientific meeting", the regulator added.The ASA said the ad must not be broadcast again in its currentform.Cameron, who has published five books and appeared on TVshows including How to Look Good Naked, took over frontingthe Olay ads last year from Nadine Baggott, a health andbeauty editor for Hello! Magazine.In the ad Cameron says: "So if youre not ready for cosmeticinjections, but want dramatically younger-looking skin, tryOlay Regenerist with pent peptides. Women who arent readyfor cosmetic injections constantly ask me to recommend a skincream that really works. So I was excited when this study,revealed at the World Congress of Dermatology, showed thatpent peptides are effective in reducing the appearance of linesand wrinkles."The ASA received complaints about the ad over four issues.Two viewers complained that it implied Olay could deliver thesame benefits as injections. The watchdog upheld this 33
  34. 34. ADVERTISING & MARKETING RESEARCH - 2011-2012 OLAYcomplaint, stating that lines delivered by Cameron, such as"women who arent ready for cosmetic injections constantlyask me to recommend a skin cream that really works", weremisleading. P&G said it would include in future ads the line"results not equal to medical procedures".The regulator said that "many viewers" had complained the adwas misleading and offensive because it implied that cosmeticinjections were a "natural or inevitable step" for women asthey got older. The ASA rejected these complaints.Another viewer, a doctor, challenged whether there really wasscientific evidence that pentapeptides reduced lines andwrinkles. The doctor also argued that the ad misleadinglyimplied that the scientific community supported the paperpresented at the WCD.P&G said it had carried out two studies into Olay Regenerist,which showed that the level of pentapeptides in the product"significantly reduced the appearance of lines and wrinkles".One of the studies was published in the International Journalof Cosmetic Science in 2005. The paper on pentapeptides wasalso presented at the WCD and was "entirely factual," P&Gadded.However, the ASA upheld the doctors two complaints. Anexpert asked by the ASA to look at the claims made by theOlay ad said there were "methodological gaps in the 34

In the self-evaluationpart of the study, test subjects reported no effect for thepentapeptide-containing product.A second study "in some respects contradicted the results inthe published paper" and had also not proved that thepentapeptide product was likely to produce results "visuallysignificant to the consumer", the ASA said."Although we acknowledged that, as a moisturising product,Regenerist was likely to temporarily reduce the appearance oflines and wrinkles, we considered that, to substantiate thistype of claim the results from the studies should be ingredientspecific, perceptible to the consumer and consistently infavour of that claim," said the ASA."We concluded that P&G had not provided evidence sufficientto support the claim."The Animal Testing Controversy in 2005:P&G is engineering ultra-tiny ‘nano’particles that canpenetrate skin and hair in ways that naturally occurring 35
  36. 36. ADVERTISING & MARKETING RESEARCH - 2011-2012 OLAYmolecules don’t. Their intention is to produce new types ofcosmetics and hair products. Inside every bottle of Oil of OlayComplete UV Protection moisturizer is a little bit of nanotech.Not surprisingly P&G are involved in animal testing ofnanoparticles.A study published in Dec 2005 reveals how one thousandhamsters, mice and rats were killed in a test where they wereplaced in sealed boxes and forced to breath air contaminatedwith nanosoot particles. The idea being to see how muchdamage was caused to the animals’ lungs. When the animalsgiven the highest doses were killed and dissected their lungswere found to have doubled in weight. During the tests theysuffered severe and persistent lung injury, which was leftuntreated - for several months in some cases.Several animals died before the end of the experiment due toa lack of basic care, such as nine rats that were not givenwater. Hamsters became ill and died because they weremoved into plastic cages, despite the scientists knowing thatthis could harm them.P&G are also pushing for a massive new animal testingprogramme to assess how poisonous different nanoparticlesare. Despite this they continue to claim that animal testing is alast resort. 36
  37. 37. ADVERTISING & MARKETING RESEARCH - 2011-2012 OLAYGenetic EngineeringP&G are involved in genetically engineering mice to createnew ways of testing ingredients for use in products such aslaundry liquids, Fairy liquid, Flash cleaner, skin care, hairproducts and other cosmetics.Genetic engineering is known to cause serious animal welfareproblems due to the fact that large numbers of animals areinvolved, surgery and other invasive procedures are used intheir creation, and that genetic modification is likely to causeharmful deformities.Mice have been genetically engineered to be more vulnerableto asthma and lung damage in order to test a P&G detergentenzyme called ‘subtilisin’. The substance was repeatedlyinjected into the bodies and up the noses of the mice, causingtheir lungs to become damaged and filled with blood, followedby pneumonia.Skin Irritancy TestsEighteen rats suffered liver damage in skin irritancy tests forchemicals to be used in hair care products and fabricsoftener. The chemical was applied to the rats that were thenwrapped to prevent them from trying to lick themselves clean.It is believed that the injuries occurred both as a result ofbeing wrapped too tightly and during unwrapping, one rat 37
  38. 38. ADVERTISING & MARKETING RESEARCH - 2011-2012 OLAYdied from such injuries before the end of the test. Thishappened despite an earlier P&G paper that highlights this asa potential problem.Washing Powder IngredientsP&G have repeatedly tested an ingredient called ‘NOBS’ onanimals even though the chemical had been found safe in amassive trial on human volunteers and has been in use forseveral years. Painful and lethal skin allergy tests were carriedout on guinea pigs as well as lethal tests on mice. These testswere not a legal requirement and once again undermineP&G’s claims that testing on animals is a ‘last resort’.Other P&G Animal Testing. An acute toxicity test where dogs were force-fed largeamounts of a cleaning chemical by stomach tube Cancer and toxicity tests on rats and mice of opticalbrighteners and other washing powder ingredients Long-term poisoning tests in animals for colouring agents Mice have been repeatedly force-fed a synthetic muskfragrance.P&G are often quoted as stating: “Sometimes, but only as alast resort, we must conduct research involving animals toensure materials are safe and effective” and “We arepassionate about continuing our progress in developingalternatives to research involving animals.”Of course these kinds of statements are standard industry 38
  39. 39. ADVERTISING & MARKETING RESEARCH - 2011-2012 OLAYspin. As these few examples show, thousands of animals die atthe hands of P&G every year in tests for trivial and totallyunnecessary ingredients aimed at improving their profitmargin.Olay brand Experience:Procter & Gamble calls it “the first moment of truth.” It’s thatpoint at which the shopper evaluates the brand and decides tobuy. Or not to buy.Even a brilliant international brand marketer like P&Gacknowledges that it cannot gain enough access to thatmoment. So the Cincinnati-based company has set up afreestanding “brand experience” counter in a local mall for itsOlay skin care line on a three-month trial run. It’s designed togather intelligence and spread information – but not to sell.The freestanding Olay “brand experience” that it has installedat the Kenwood Towne Centre in Cincinnati, Procter’s backyard, is strictly a learning experience.“We need to find out how the consumer reacts to our brand,”says John Brownlee, the Olay brand manager.Olay is a “mass-tige” brand, the higher end of the skin careproducts sold off the shelves of mass market destinations like 39
  40. 40. ADVERTISING & MARKETING RESEARCH - 2011-2012 OLAYWal-Mart, Target, CVS and Kroger. Naturally, P&G has donetons of market research on customer preferences andreactions, but Brownlee acknowledges that that’s not alwaysreliable. “Focus groups tend to be a bit artificial,” he concedes.“People are not in a buying situation. And they sometimes tellyou what they think you want to hear.”The freestanding counter, conceptualized and designed byBenchmark (Cincinnati), clearly states the Olay name andbrand position and is set up to engage shoppers inconversation. It’s also located where the Olay market shops.Kenwood Towne Centre is the area’s premier fashion mall.And the 130-square-foot booth is in an aisle populated byAveda, Guess, Express and Abercrombie & Fitch leading to aParisian store.Stanchions at all six mall entrances announce Olay’s presencewith large model photography and a simple copy line:“Experience Olay like never before.”“It’s a different environment for a familiar brand,” says CamillePopplewell, vp and market leader of Benchmark’s beauty andfashion group. “We think the unexpected – coming upon Olayin such an unfamiliar setting – will stop shoppers andencourage curiosity.” 40
  41. 41. ADVERTISING & MARKETING RESEARCH - 2011-2012 OLAY“It also had to have strong brand identity,” says Maria Deacon,Benchmark’s senior environmental designer. “So the Olay logois large and clear and backlit on all four sides of the space. It’svery Chanel-esque, and shoppers will identify with it.”The space is open, with room for movement and counterspacefor consultations and information. But it won’t be only trainedbeauty consultants having those conversations.“This is primarily a learning opportunity for us,” Brownleeinsists, “so we’ll have P&G marketing people there andproduct development people and even finance people. Forthree months, we’ll be finding out how well we’ve read themarket, how much explaining our Olay products require andhow well we create impact at the point of sale. You never getto control this kind of real estate in the store.”And if a shopper wants to buy product? “We’ll sell it to her,”he says, “or we’ll give her a coupon for the nearest Kroger orCVS or Wal-Mart, or wherever she shops for Olay.”Saatchi & Saatchi won “silver lion” at Cannes forOlay:A print entry for Procter & Gambles Oil of Olay (in the Health& Beauty category) was awarded a Silver Lion in the Print 41
  42. 42. ADVERTISING & MARKETING RESEARCH - 2011-2012 OLAYcategory. The winning entry is a press ad, with just the words‘0 to 60 in 100 years on it, and a bottle of Oil of Olay at thebottom right-hand corner. The entry being from Saatchi &Saatchi Hong Kong, the Lion has been awarded to the agencysHong Kong office.However, Saatchi & Saatchi India can also take credit for thisSilver Lion - for the simple reason that the idea came out ofSaatchi Indias Bangalore office. Speaking to agencyfaqs! FromCannes, Ramesh Ramanathan, national creative director,Saatchi & Saatchi India, explains this in detail. "We had comeup with this idea, and we presented it to the Saatchi network.The network liked the idea immensely, and as there was aclear requirement for an idea on Oil of Olay in Hong Kong, andas our idea was relevant to that brand, it was executed there. I 42
  43. 43. ADVERTISING & MARKETING RESEARCH - 2011-2012 OLAYthink this is a demonstration of how strong and how creative-focused the Saatchi network is."Interestingly, although Cannes has awarded the Lion to theHong Kong office, in the record books, the creative credits goto Ramanathan, Ryan Menezes, Vinod Lal Heera Eshwer andDinesh TP, apart from Tiffany Huang. "Yes, our Hong Kongoffice gets its name into the Cannes record books, but for us inSaatchi India, this is as good as getting the metal," saysRamanathan. "Within the Saatchi network, we get the credit. Iam happy that my boys in Bangalore have proved themselvesin Cannes as well."Brand Ambassadors: Sushmita Sen- Olay, the No 1 skin care brand in the worlds fashion capitals, has now come to India.

And we can’t wait to watch her strut her stuff! Madhuri Dixit-Nene, the Dhak dhak girl of B-town, recently came back to settle in Mumbai with her family. There was much buzz about what she will do once she is back to home and B-town turf, what her priorities will be, et al. It was said that she wanted to take it easy and get back into the working girl groove slowly and steadily, concentrating on home and hearth before stepping into the studios, but we heard something that kind of contradicts that whole happy tale. Madhuri has apparently been approached by big- name cosmetics brand Olay to be a brand ambassador. As our sources revealed, she has accepted the offer and is all set to be the face of the product chain. Olay is apparently trolling Farmville for the right set of ambassadors for the 49

  68. 68. ADVERTISING & MARKETING RESEARCH - 2011-2012 OLAY ConclusionOlay which is very successful in abroad among the leadingskincare brands is making its hold in India but on a slowerpace. People tend to use the products they are used torather than trying new ones. But advertising can dowonders to change the buying decision of people. Itmakes them aware of the product and at the same timesgives a 3D picture of the product. People buy on the basisof what they see and hear from their surroundings.But sometimes, advertising can be misleading and canraise issues in the society (the animal test controversy ofOlay). This can prove to be harmful for the Brand Image.Thus, advertising should be for the people to buy theproduct without affecting their beliefs.Olay is doing a great work by inventing new products andadvertising them by taking endorsers with whom peoplecan relate to very well. The brand would soon establishthe same spot in India as it has in foreign countries. 68
