It´s time for some analysis...dissect the digital marketing strategy of your favorite brand
What is your favorite brand?
WHY is it your favorite brand? What is their WHY? Does your why and theirs match? What are the emotional, functional, social or self-expressive benefits they deliver to you?
And how is it reflected in their marketing mix, their 4P´s?
In case you need further instructions on how to tackle it, go to the additional material section of chapter 3.1 (e.g. there is an analysis of the marketing mix of Starbucks)
My favorite brand
One of my favorite brands is Subaru. One of their marketing efforts in the past was "We built our reputation by building a better car". I never really saw the campaign, maybe it is too old, but this is something i head from all the people who own a Subaru. It is impressive the customers satisfaction levels.
Subaru tells me about quality, consistency, performance, but i emotionally i connect with the brand because my life style match with theirs. All their cars are 4x4 (except for one) and they are suitable for outdoors activities. Also, one of their campaigns is related with dogs!
