1. CAMPAIGN BACKGROUND
In the context of reaching the goal of making Vietnamese lives better
with sustainable living, Unilever has committed to reduce its
environmental impact by 2020, in this case is reducing water use in
laundry process by easy rinse product (Comfort 1 rinse).
In 2012, Comfort 1 rinse was launched but the awareness of using it due
to its positive environmental impact has not been raised yet.
In 2013, Unilever want to do a big campaign to raise the awareness of
saving clean water by simple action of using Comfort 1 rinse.

somehow hidden) problem of water

3/ BRAND/CONSUMER/COMMUNICATION CONTEXT
2/ Consumer Context:
- Current customers understand about the benefit of product but they do not realize
the water shortage. They will feel motivated if they know that their daily usage can
help solve a macro/national problem.
- Non-users: they will have 1 more (impactful, meaningful) reason beside functional
benefit to use Comfort.
1/ Brand Context: Comfort need a way to help raise voice and hand in dealing with water
scarcity problem in Vietnam. This will help the community and at the same time differentiate
them with other competitors
3/ Communication Context:
-Young generations (students) are the one who willing to spread the message without
hesitation if it is meaningful and impactful.
- Others will feel motivated, especially adults (mom, young grand-mom), and act when
they see their children act with passion.

7. CAMPAIGN OUTCOME/RESULT
1/ Brand Love: in this age, owning good functional benefit is not enough. Bringing
the benefit onto whole new emotive level (which is relevant with individual,
customers can feel and see their own reflection in the brand) or even aspirational
level (a common point, spirit in macroscope) is the key that lead to brand success.
2/ PR: now is the time for PR as customers gradually don’t believe in advertising
anymore. PR create a story where brand and customers connected, understand
each other, feel the beauty within and finally, attach without conditions. Let the
customers build brand is becoming the trend.
3/ Content: only when your Brand is confident and feel “amazed” by your own
content then it can be escalated to engage customers.
Garbage in – Garbage out, do not imagine that with one silly/irrelevant/out-trend
idea that you can make customers inspired and follow.
8/ KEY LEARNINGS:
