This category of product is low involvement product and sine the price is relatively high we will keep on explaining to people why it matters to buy our product instead of other lower priced tissues. Promotion Clean has invested a lot in their brands to define the category they are in, and to protect their brand name.. They released a documentary movie to build a connection between movies . The movie was made to make an emotional bond between Kleenex and the target audience and was part of.. Blue couches were put up on the sidewalks in big cities on which people were invited to sit down and express their emotions. The unique thing about this was that the people invited were real people, and not actors. The campaign will be broadcasted on many media channels such as TV, radio, print, internet (letitout.com), and also encompassed the public relations activity Stp Segmentation clean is a low involvement product. This means that people will not need very long to consider if they do or do not purchase a box of tissues. If they dont like the tissues they bought then they will throw them away and the next time they purchase tissues they can easily buy another brand. This makes it much harder for clean tissue to differentiate themselves from their competitors. Because why would the customer buy clean tissues if they just as easily buy another brand which will also fulfill their needs of having tissues. Targeting Everybody uses tissues. When youre young or old, a boy or a girl it doesnt matter. So it is hard for clean to target certain groups. The only difference that the customers have is when they use their clean tissues. For example the ladies use clean for when they are removing their make-up. And the men may use their clean for when they are crying. The most likely target group which clean has are the women. This simply because women are more expressive with their emotions. Clean already targets this group by producing good looking boxes and tissues with a nice sent. Clean needs to keep focusing on the women. These are the customers which are most likely to buy their products so these are an important factor in the sales of clean.

Positioning Clean needs to position themselves as a brand which operates in the higher end of the market. They are more expensive than other brands but with this expense also comes a certain value which clean offers to their customers. Of course clean has already managed to create this image in the mind of the customers. The problem which clean faces is that people perceived clean as a brand which didnt produce their products in a green manner. Clean took care of this problem and now it is up to them to keep on positioning themselves as the brand which has become more environmentally friendly. Objectives Based on SMART.
