Ideal Brand Plan Format

  1. 1. Brand plan includes the vision, purpose, goals, analysis, key issues, strategies, execution plans and measurements Brand Plan format
  2. 2. Case Study: Gray’s Cookies Gray’s Cookies is a 40-year-old family recipe, used for years in a local coffee shop in Stowe Vermont. Gray’s was a local favorite and even among tourists, famous for it’s Chocolate Chip and Peanut Butter flavors. No one realized it was also a healthy treat—low fat, low calories. With the growing health trend, the Gray family decided to capitalize and launched Gray’s on a regional basis in New England and received moderate success. In 2005, one of Boston’s internationally known health experts came out with a glowing review of Gray’s. Other nutritionists backed Gray’s. The brand was now receiving national attention and demand. Using the regional sales results, Gray’s gained a national listing at Whole Foods in 2006. Other food retailers took notice and Gray’s secured listings at Safeway, Kroger, Tops and A&P. Gray has a strong listing base at food, but limited in other channels. Gray’s launched one new product every 2 years, with Oatmeal in 2009, Peanut Butter in 2011 and Cranberry in 2013. Only Peanut Butter is meeting current sales thresholds. Gray’s success came from “proactive preventer” consumers, who claim to work out 3+ times per week and ‘read labels before eating’. Gray’s is loved among the very tight niche, but has yet to be embraced by mainstream consumers. The brand’s awareness is soft, trial is fair, and conversion to purchase is very strong because of the taste. Gray’s recently conducted a blind taste study shows Gray’s is as good as the market leaders. On top of that, watching what Special K was doing, they did a study that showed if you used Gray’s as a Desert replacement, consumers could lose 5lbs over 12 weeks. The current customer value proposition is targeting Healthy Proactive Preventers. Arguably, Gray’s is a beloved brand already among that niche target. Where else can they go, in order to get a broader mainstream audience? Main benefit is balance of taste and health. Emotional connection is the guilt-free zone; allowing consumers to cheat, yet stay in control of their diet. Reason to believe is one backing up of the taste and the other the health. Natural ingredient is a bit of a throw away re-enforcement, maybe for the packaging. The big question for Gray’s is how do you gain a broader audience for Gray’s? Or do we try to get current users to use more. How do we use Advertising to drive more awareness? What role does gaining a broader distribution play? And while there’s been mixed success using innovation, what’s the plan going forward?

  7. 7. Brand Plan Drivers • Taste drives a high conversion of Trial to Purchase (65% vs. norm of 50%). • Strong Listings has driven strong Distribution in Food Channels (95%) • Exceptional brand health scores among Early Adopters (“Proactive Preventers”) making it a highly Beloved Brand among the niche. Inhibitors • Brand Funnel scores show that we are still a niche player (low familiar), but have yet to turn our sales into strong following (low loyalty) • Awareness among mainstream target (20%) held back due to weak Advertising scores. Low Attention scores and Brand Link scores. • Low distribution at specialty stores at only 16%. Poor sales coverage. • Low Purchase Frequency (2.2 boxes per year vs. norm of 7.3) even among the most loyal early adopters. Drivers and Inhibitors
  8. 8. Brand Plan Risks • Mainstream cookie brands could enter the ‘health’ segment through R&D or Acquisition. Rumors that Pepperidge Farms will launch in Q1 2014, and Nabisco Q3 2014. • De-listing of our 2 weakest skus (Oatmeal and Cranberry) because of POS thresholds, could weaken our in-store presence down to 3 skus. • Legal Challenge to “tastes as good as your favorite cookie”. Opportunities • R&D has 5 new flavors in development. Could launch Peanut Butter in Q4 of 2013 (top 15% in testing), Chocolate Chunks in Q2 of 2014 (top 50%) • Specialty Sales Broker could specifically target Specialty Stores, which are in high growth mode (+15% per year) • Explore social media options as a vehicle for converting strong loyal following into a more mainstream mass appeal. Risks and Opportunities
  9. 9. Brand Plan Key Issues and Strategies What’s the priority for growth: driving new users or driving frequency among current users? How do we fix the distribution gaps to add to Gray’s momentum? 1 2 How will we defend Gray’s against the proposed Q1 2014 ‘healthy cookie’ launch from Nabisco? 3 Key Issues Strategies Attack Nabisco’s ‘healthy’ credibility by having 60% higher calories Drive trial by advertising Gray’s “stay in control” positioning Fix Gray’s distribution gaps with a sales force blitz at food and drug
  10. 10. Brand Plan Strategy #1: Drive trial by advertising Gray’s “stay in control” positioning Strategic Objective: • Advertise Gray’s “stay in control” positioning to new “proactive preventers” to move consumers from consideration to trial and steal competitive users. Goals: • Increase penetration from 10% to 12%, specifically up from 15% to 20% with the core target. Monitor usage frequency among the most loyal to ensure it stays steady. Tactical Program: • Ensure all programs target the “Proactive Preventer” target, who is 35-40 female, who work out 3x a week. • Use “guilt free treat” message across advertising, packaging, in-store and events, which has tested as the most motivating and own-able message for Gray’s. • Recommend a balanced consumer marketing mix of advertising to drive positioning and sampling to drive trial. More details are outlined on the next strategy. Watch out: • At this point, we believe the product taste and consumer habits around healthy eating can help drive frequency of use.
  11. 11. Brand Plan Strategy #2: Fix Gray’s distribution gaps with a sales force blitz at food and drug Strategic Objective: • Sales force blitz to fix Gray’s distribution gaps at drug and mass to continue Gray’s momentum and strengthen Gray’s market share. Goal: • Focus for sales is to close distribution gaps going from 62% to 72%. Increase distribution up to 90% at food and 70% at national drug stores. Gain fair share of merchandising in all channels.

  12. 12.

Goal: • Hold dollar share during competitive launches and continue to grow 11% post launch gaining up to 1.2% share. Target zero losses at shelf.
