Survey, 2013.

Brand Equity Survey, 2013
BRAND PORTFOLIO
• Its portfolio of brands included „Lux‟, „Lifebuoy‟, „Liril‟, „Surf‟, „Ponds‟, „Vaseline‟, „Vim‟,
„Clinic All Clear‟ and „Axe‟. Most of these brands remained market leaders for several
years in their respective product categories & by early 2003 HLL had launched a number
of brand extensions with varying degree of success. Its flagship brands „Ponds‟ & „Clinic
All Clear‟ made a smooth transition from a cold cream to ‘Age defying creams’, soap,
facewash, talc, towelettes & from anti-dandruff shampoo to hair oil
category respectively was somewhat successful.
MARKETING FAILURE OF UNILEVER
LIMITED
PONDS

• Mostly skin care
products, positioned
as an all purpose
skin care.
• Brand that celebrate
women's
courage
and personality.
PONDS TOOTHPASTE

Ponds extended to toothpaste category.
But the „Ponds toothpaste‟ extension “failed miserably”.
It was not accepted as Ponds was associated to freshness, fragrance and clean skin.
• „Ponds‟, the popular brand of face cream, didn‟t prove to
be quite so popular when it applied its name to
toothpaste. In a blind test environment, people were not
able to differentiate „Ponds‟ toothpaste from that of
„Colgate‟. The real problem was that no one seemed to
be interested when Ponds label was attached to the
toothpaste;
• Although Ponds had successfully extended its brand
before to soaps & shampoo, but the attributes required
in toothpaste case were simply missing.
• Brands need to be careful to choose the territory in
which they tread.
• Lack of proper research before entry into a new market
or segment can lead to catastrophic results which
include wasting of big sum of money on product
development and marketing.
To consumers the brand Ponds was nothing but
fragrance & a consumer product for external
application only; this did work brilliantly with soaps &
creams however the attributes for toothpaste are
taste. This mis-match between the attribute of
toothpaste & the soap created a disillusionment in the
mind of consumers thus when Ponds ventured into
oral health care, it was ignored. Consumers simply
refused to acknowledge its presence leading to a
sudden but painful death of a brand.
CONCLUSION
• Extensions have more chance of being successful when their functional benefits remain alike or the same.

• Extensions must strengthen the core and the core must remain unchanged.
• HUL brand Ponds successfully moved from cold cream to other extensions such as Age defying creams, soap,
shampoo & talc, because the basic premise of protection for the skin and freedom from wear and tear
remained the same, while as in case of Ponds toothpaste its failed even though both the product are also to
be used for cleanness and freshness.
• With toothpaste we clean & then spit it out, whereas with cream, soap or shampoo we apply it externally. Thus
perception of cleanness and freshness is taken so differently in different products. Even-though the attributes
are same, soap & toothpaste yet the market does not perceive it to be same.
• A wrong choice in brand extension without proper market research & without proper product attribute
knowledge is what led to failure of the Ponds Toothpaste.

  • 4. BRAND RECOGNITION • HUL is No. 1 in most of the categories it operates (laundry, soaps, hair care, BRAND CLOUD home care, skin care, deodorants). • Two out of three Indians use HUL‟s products, making its brands a part of every day life. • Offer more than 1000 products under 42 brands . • 7 brands > Rs. 1000 crs ; 13 brands > Rs. 500 crs . • 17 out of top 100 most trusted brands in India Nelson Survey, 2013. Brand Equity Survey, 2013
  • 5. BRAND PORTFOLIO • Its portfolio of brands included „Lux‟, „Lifebuoy‟, „Liril‟, „Surf‟, „Ponds‟, „Vaseline‟, „Vim‟, „Clinic All Clear‟ and „Axe‟. Most of these brands remained market leaders for several years in their respective product categories & by early 2003 HLL had launched a number of brand extensions with varying degree of success. Its flagship brands „Ponds‟ & „Clinic All Clear‟ made a smooth transition from a cold cream to ‘Age defying creams’, soap, facewash, talc, towelettes & from anti-dandruff shampoo to hair oil category respectively was somewhat successful.
  • 6. MARKETING FAILURE OF UNILEVER LIMITED
  • 7. PONDS • Mostly skin care products, positioned as an all purpose skin care. • Brand that celebrate women's courage and personality.
  • 8. PONDS TOOTHPASTE Ponds extended to toothpaste category. But the „Ponds toothpaste‟ extension “failed miserably”. It was not accepted as Ponds was associated to freshness, fragrance and clean skin.
  • 9. • „Ponds‟, the popular brand of face cream, didn‟t prove to be quite so popular when it applied its name to toothpaste. In a blind test environment, people were not able to differentiate „Ponds‟ toothpaste from that of „Colgate‟. The real problem was that no one seemed to be interested when Ponds label was attached to the toothpaste; • Although Ponds had successfully extended its brand before to soaps & shampoo, but the attributes required in toothpaste case were simply missing. • Brands need to be careful to choose the territory in which they tread. • Lack of proper research before entry into a new market or segment can lead to catastrophic results which include wasting of big sum of money on product development and marketing.
  • 10. To consumers the brand Ponds was nothing but fragrance & a consumer product for external application only; this did work brilliantly with soaps & creams however the attributes for toothpaste are taste. This mis-match between the attribute of toothpaste & the soap created a disillusionment in the mind of consumers thus when Ponds ventured into oral health care, it was ignored. Consumers simply refused to acknowledge its presence leading to a sudden but painful death of a brand.
  • 11. CONCLUSION • Extensions have more chance of being successful when their functional benefits remain alike or the same. • Extensions must strengthen the core and the core must remain unchanged. • HUL brand Ponds successfully moved from cold cream to other extensions such as Age defying creams, soap, shampoo & talc, because the basic premise of protection for the skin and freedom from wear and tear remained the same, while as in case of Ponds toothpaste its failed even though both the product are also to be used for cleanness and freshness. • With toothpaste we clean & then spit it out, whereas with cream, soap or shampoo we apply it externally. Thus perception of cleanness and freshness is taken so differently in different products. Even-though the attributes are same, soap & toothpaste yet the market does not perceive it to be same. • A wrong choice in brand extension without proper market research & without proper product attribute knowledge is what led to failure of the Ponds Toothpaste.
