  66. 81. RESULTS Dove sales increased by 700% in the first 4 months of the campaign, 800 stories in the media The campaign won awards as most effective
  67. 83. Lessons learned By dissecting Dove’s pro•age program, you can discover the DNA of a successful marketing campaign for the age 50-plus market. Here are seven lessons you might apply to your marketing: 1. Do your homework. Get to know your clients and their needs, so you can better understand what to communicate to these adults and how.
  68. 84. Lessons learned 2. Realize that your marketing needs to “capture the spirit” of the viewers, readers or users by featuring real people, with real stories. How would your clients react to your offerings if they captured their spirit? Ask your clients to share their successes online and to encourage others to share theirs.
  69. 86. <ul><li>Create a community feeling among your clients from the start. </li></ul><ul><li>For example, host gatherings in your juice bar or </li></ul><ul><li>dining area after classes. Program support groups, </li></ul><ul><li>and invite them to get involved with your center or </li></ul><ul><li>community. You’ll know you’ve achieved that </li></ul><ul><li>community feeling when your clients express a </li></ul><ul><li>sense of ownership about your business. Pride is </li></ul><ul><li>priceless. </li></ul>
  70. 87. . 4. Demonstrate that you’re an advocate for your clients. Engage in community events that support mature women or men—from the Red Hat Society, to raising funds for breast or prostate cancer, to hosting postmenopausal education workshops.
  71. 89. 5. Create a debate in your community around your offerings.
  72. 91. <ul><li>Use your website as an interactive marketing tool for storytelling, and not just as an online brochure. </li></ul><ul><li>(Seventy percent of adults ages 50–64 use the Internet, as do 82% of those 30–49, and 33% of those over 65, according to a 2006 Pew Internet and American Life Project study.) </li></ul>
  73. 93. 7. Be pro-age! Like Dove, promote “affirmative and hope-driven” attitudes toward aging.
  74. 94. 10. Demonstrate your credibility and commitment
  75. 95. <ul><li>Over the course of the last 8 years ICAA has received millions </li></ul><ul><li>of dollars of free exposure, to millions of people worldwide </li></ul><ul><li>Tools: Newspapers, television, radio, the internet, </li></ul><ul><li>newsletters, brochures, presentations, word of mouth, etc. </li></ul>
