PETA Presentation

  1. 1. Rebranding Strategy Submitted by Ujjwal Khullar(82) Lavanya Mandal (77) SIMC 2010
  2. 2. Brand PETA <ul><li>PETA as a brand is Pointed, outrageous, admired, and criticized. </li></ul><ul><li>PETA's messaging is the type that makes the audience sit up and take notice. </li></ul><ul><li>PETA is highly active. It has already explored most forms of marketing techniques- TVCs, gorilla marketing, campaigns, print ads, Celebrity endorsement. </li></ul><ul><li>It's also everywhere. PETA as an organization has jumped on the social media bandwagon in a big way, and is riding shotgun on blogs, YouTube, MySpace, Flickr, and lots of word-of-mouth initiatives. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>PETA focuses on four areas where animals suffer the most: </li></ul><ul><li>On factory farms </li></ul><ul><li>In laboratories </li></ul><ul><li>In clothing trade </li></ul><ul><li>In the entertainment industry </li></ul><ul><li>They also work on a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of beavers, birds and other &quot;pests,&quot; and the abuse of backyard dogs.  </li></ul>
  4. 4. Some of their promotional material for various campaigns are: <ul><li>Companion animals </li></ul><ul><li>Vegetarianism </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Animals used for clothing </li></ul><ul><li>Animal testing and dissection </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Animals used for entertainment </li></ul>
  7. 7. Present Marketing strategy <ul><li>For each of their projects PETA looks at two ways of reaching out to people </li></ul><ul><li>-one is through media, either from celebrity support or a creative demonstration, </li></ul><ul><li>- the other is through marketing (by putting video online, buying online ads, pitching it to bloggers, making an interesting Web feature, providing activists with tools to promote the idea, facilitating people taking action, emailing something to the supporters, sending a bulletin to their friends on MySpace, updating Wikipedia with relevant information, etc. </li></ul>
  8. 8. The outcome <ul><li>PETA has 26 years of campaign and media experience. </li></ul><ul><li>It grew from a network of 7,500 youth activists to over 100,000 energetic guerrilla marketers. </li></ul>
  9. 9. However there is a gap!!! <ul><li>A decade back with supermodels like Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss ready to stay naked rather than wear furs, fur clothing had gone out of fashion. However, today most fashion magazines feature top brands flaunting fur collection. </li></ul><ul><li>Its tactics are growing increasingly predictable and, therefore, ineffective.  </li></ul><ul><li>Shock advertising is failing to connect with the people and instead of being motivated to support the cause they end up criticizing the organization. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>PETA is getting branded as an extremist and its exclusionary marketing tactics is not helping the brand. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Problems <ul><li>Hiring B class celebrities </li></ul><ul><li>Using outrageous forms of advertising featuring women in vulgar poses. Invites criticism rather than attention to the cause. </li></ul><ul><li>Extreme negativity against non vegetarians. </li></ul><ul><li>Messaging doesn’t invite or motivate people to join the cause, rather they are just limited to creating a sensation. </li></ul><ul><li>Since following the same marketing strategy from decades, Predictable. So the message has become ineffective. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Solution <ul><li>People view PETA as a bit of a cult, “either you agree with us 100% or you’re out.” We need to change this and adopt an inclusive marketing strategy . </li></ul><ul><li>There many who feel very strongly for one cause of PETA but may not adhere to the other causes. For example, a person may feel strongly against the use of fur but may not be a vegetarian. PETA does not give an opportunity to these people. The idea is to identify these people and convert them into passion groups through the new media platform. </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>There are others who feel strongly for the causes that PETA supports but have never taken the initiative or got the opportunity to actively do anything for it. They are Pseudo players who feel good about the fact that there are animal rights activists who are fighting for the cause. We need to bring these pseudo players together through the social media platform. </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>Right now they have mostly youth activists. Our idea is to involve people from all age groups to project PETA as a thinking and supporting brand. For this we need to include prosumers in our new media campaign. They would not only consume the ongoing campaigns but would also add to their growth. </li></ul>
  15. 15. Disruptive Idea
  16. 16. Messaging <ul><li>Move from ‘Don’t’ messages to ‘Think and do’ messages. </li></ul><ul><li>Passion Groups: Support the cause that you strongly feel for. Your efforts count. </li></ul><ul><li>Pseudo players: Support in whichever way you can, don’t sit and watch. </li></ul><ul><li>Prosumers: Think…if it makes a difference to society, then support it. </li></ul><ul><li>Activists: Be positive! Make a difference with care. </li></ul>
  17. 17. STRATEGY
  18. 18. <ul><li>Use all forms of media effectively to create awareness and action for the causes using the new messaging and branding strategy. </li></ul><ul><li>Target area wise issues. </li></ul><ul><li>Involve real people. </li></ul>
  19. 20. Strategy: New Media <ul><li>PETA already has a strong presence in new media through twitter, facebook, myspace youtube, blogs and its own website. </li></ul><ul><li>The online world is expanding. Newer social networking channels like second life and would also be included to form communities. </li></ul><ul><li>Community members would be encouraged to promote the cause and communication material through different channels.

  20. 21.
