Espresso FINAL

  1. 1. Case Study: The Bluetooth Earmuff: Defy and Unleash the Cold Presented November 24, 2010
  2. 2. What is the Bluetooth Earmuff? It's uniquely Canadian: stylish, classic with a modern use. Available in classic Canadian plaid and classic black.
  3. 3. The marketing design concept... Incorporating the classic Canadian look that is trending now (think: Hudson Bay coats and classic Sorel boots) with a modern use. Boldly show your style and stay connected despite the cold.
  4. 4. The Goal: Establish the Bluetooth Earmuff as Canada’s newest must-have winter necessity for the stylish, tech- saavy, sporty Canadian woman via an integrated launch campaign just in time for the holidays…
  5. 5. Market Research... Bluetooth technology and applications have shown amazing growth in recent years. What do the numbers say? According to tech market research statistics: Bluetooth continues to be the most successful wireless interface technology EVER. One BILLION Classic Bluetooth devices shipped in 2010, led by its over 65% penetration of the mobile phone market.
  6. 6. The Challenge… Distinguish a new addition to the Bluetooth accessory landscape in a very cluttered market. How: Establish the product as the most stylish way to stay connected this winter in a market with big competitors like Apple accessories and tech active wear.
  7. 7. Distinguishable from our competitors? You betcha.... And who are "they"? Stylish tech accessories through Lululemon and Bonfire. Non-tech winter accessories like the Burberry earmuff. Why will we overcome our competition? • Price point • Multiple use • Style AND substance • Active AND fashionable
  8. 8. Who represents our target market?
  9. 9. This woman: Who is she? Style conscious, tech- savvy, urban, cost- conscious active,18-40
  10. 10. Why her? Women are responsible for 83% of all consumer purchases. Bluetooth technology and applications have shown exceptional growth in recent years, however the market has not spoken directly to women to engage them through a smart, stylish device application. Especially Canadian women. The product's low price point and design aesthetic (the classic earmuff) are more strategically competitive with stylish, winter accessories than traditional tech gear. While men may use the product for its value, the look and feel is more reliant on the active, style-conscious winter warrior woman.
  11. 11. The concept... Defy and Unleash the Cold.
  12. 12. To Defy.... Boldly defy winter and stay connected to your friends, your music and your style.
  13. 13. To Unleash... To break ties from the binds of clumsy cords into a wireless world of fashion... To break the mold... To show your style and stay connected despite the cold Canadian winter...
