Why: after doing our own reaserch we found out that TOMS has succeded into attracting its desired taget marketWhy this particular group? Generation Y is a socially conscious bunch: volunteerism went up 25% from 2002 to 2005 and feelings of civic responsibility is the highest in 25 years. Socially conscious brands have seen a steady growth over the last decade, as Generation Y graduates from allowance to income.ALSO since TOMS is doing most of their advertising and PR through Facebook and that’s the age group which uses it the mostALSO young peoplelike their individuality and want to show it= they paint their plain white canvas Toms as they desire
Found in main retail stores like nordstrom and neimanmarcus and journey’s. Smaller retail chain stores in western Europe
http://www.joinred.com/Toms main competitor is converseshoesbecuasetheyhavebeenaround for generations and fromoursurvyeaboutwhichcharitywasmorerecongonizable, converse (red) had the mostvotes. Continuing with the converse brand, it is popular with the same market as Toms and they can be found in almost every store. (PRODUCT) RED Chuck Taylor All Star Hi Top Shoe Converse will contribute a portion of the profits from the purchase of every red-colored Chuck Taylor All Star shoe to the Global Fund to help eliminate AIDS.
Points of Differentation: What makes toms unique is the fact that they do not partner with any other charitable organization, that they have their own charity. All purchases goes towards charity, that is why the shoes are priced quit high, to cover the cost of a pair that is going to be given out. When you search toms on google, their charity and what they are doing to rise awareness of their cause is not far from the name. What also makes them diferent is becuase they advertise as a community, in their pictures, print ads, vedios, getting the retailers involdedPoints of Parity: They are also confertable and in the same price range of their competetor, converse and as the same as converes, the ability to find shoes that express your own individualilaty.

Not your typical product placement, as you don’t see a LABEL. As TOMS is quite unique in the design they are, this is the only way to view the shoes as a product placement. Unfortunately, TOMS does not have much in the way of product placement but many stars are seen wearing them. http://coolspotters.com/brands/toms-shoes/and/tv-shows/pretty-little-liars#medium-1647107
