  15. 15. Brand content is not an editorial « wrap up » for an advertizing message: it is interesting per se.
  16. 16. Why is brand content so important for luxury communication ?
  17. 17. 1) Present and promote the brand’s universe <ul><li>The attraction of luxury brands lie in their capacity to create a « brand dream » </li></ul><ul><li>Rather than seeking to satisfy a consumer need, luxury brands have an attractive identity to promote. </li></ul><ul><li>The advertising message is sometimes restricting in regards to the brand’s universe (for instance, travels for Louis Vuitton) </li></ul><ul><li>Content can show the richness of the imaginary of luxury </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Mythical dimension of the brand </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Art de vivre, luxury as a whole experience </li></ul></ul>
  18. 20. 2) Brand content answers to a specific mecanism of desire <ul><li>The consumer never desires one single object only, but a whole ensemble around that object: a story, a way of life, other objects. </li></ul><ul><li>Gilles Deleuze : “desire is not filling a gap, but building an organized world.” ( L’anti-Oedipe , Editions de Minuit) </li></ul><ul><li>Editorial content allows to draw level with the consumer’s desire: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Create a story </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Locate the object in its universe of reference </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Prolong / precede the purchase </li></ul></ul>
  19. 23. 3) Initiate new clients : talk about the product <ul><li>Appreciating luxury requires to know its codes, culture and immaterial background. </li></ul><ul><li>The old advertisement for Twingo: “invent the life that goes with it” has its limits: content allows to initiate and guide the consumer in his practices and tastes. </li></ul><ul><li>Content helps to spread the immaterial culture of luxury </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The knowhow, the gesture of the craftsman </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The cultural background </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The history of the brand </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Why this product is a luxury product </li></ul></ul>
  20. 25. The whole difficulty for brands is to create a worthy editorial experience. Jean Claude Elena tells the secrets of the making of the Kelly Calèche perfume on the Hermès website.
  21. 26. 4) Be visible while remaining exclusive <ul><li>Videos of Chanel fashion shows: a show that everyone can see, but where most people do not have access to. </li></ul><ul><li>Content can reinforce this feeling of tension between openness and closure. </li></ul><ul><li>Editorial content allows the brand to have several cultural layers </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Explicit references, litteral meaning for the main stream. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Metaphores, hidden references for initiates </li></ul></ul>
  22. 28. 3 laws of Brand Content Bring value Communication is a product in itself, it is self-sufficient (entertaining, informative, practical) Think global, talk about the world around the product Instead of focusing on one specific aspect of the product, the brand tries to integrate it into a wider cultural ensemble. Talk to a person rather than to a consumer Content is presented as a gift to a person (not just to a consumer), from which is expected a counter gift (purchase / recommandation)
