They branded their service as Extra Value.Extra Friendly. No one wanted to use Halifaxs current accounts as they werent a recognised bank, and seemed risky for consumers to invest in.

Honest the profitable return on audacio us communication. Skoda Jokes were so entwined in British Culture that, despite the brands acquisition by VW in 1992, radical product improvements had continued to fall on deaf ears. In other words people were aware of the improvements and consequently didnt buy. The repositioning that accompanied the launch of the Fabia in March 2000 challenged Skodas prejudice. We can eliminate most variables that would give consumers a reason to buy the car meaning that it was advertising that made people buy the car (not other factors). * Price Byers report, showed a nappy deflation in the car market price.Skoda were an exception the average price for a Skoda was 60% higher than 97. * Distribution No changes in numbers, share or quality. * bring in Marketing * Product * 64% increase in Sales * The marketing expenditure was ? 14m, and it was estimated to have returned ? 37m of profits.

Marco Rimmi, Advertising Works 12, (World Advertising Research Ce ntre, Oxfordshire, 2003) Benadryl How the soft sell sold harder At the launch, allergy brand Benadryl had the product advantage of being fast playing then its competitors.Advertising was developed to explain this advantage. After a successful launch the brand suddenly started to decline and growth was negative. Competitors had come into the market with competitive speed claims and similar creative treatments. The decision was taken to launch a variant with a completely different creative treatment. The advertising idea was to criminalise the causes of hayfever. patently people who suffer from Hayfever Need treatment to control or prevent the symptoms.However nobody needed or necessarily wanted to buy Benadryl formerly other businesses began to sell the same product.
