As Gabrielle Coco Chanel once mentioned: “Luxury is a necessity that begins where necessity ends”
This study concentrates on the integrated marketing communications plan of the Greek company Folli Follie (personal luxury products retailer) and how it is implemented across international culture: the expansion in China.
This report was created to point out the mixed marketing communications plan for Folli Follie, in order to strengthen the FF Group reputation and motivate the end-user confidence.
Key factors for this communication are International Culture and Access to Global Market. We choose to focus on these two topics, because international employees and customers need more guidelines on these specifics.
International Culture: raise awareness upon cultural differences and increase diversification rates.
Access to Global Market: to expand the awareness of the impact of the Global Environment in new emerging markets.
The guidelines include:
- Branding: create & use consistent message and image
- Efficiency: create re-usable content & high impact channels,such as a multimedia website and social media
- Data metrics: plan activity measurements & future decision making data.
The Goals of this plan form from three levels:
1) Strengthen the reputation of Folli Follie
2) Attract new customers and enhance satisfaction
3) Create engagement and positive industry buzz (word of mouth)
The purpose of this plan is to support the practices, policies and the action plan of the Folly Follies Group and relate them with the business goals and vision, in order to raise awareness, loyalty and customer relationship.
