  • Chrysler

descargaThe Chrysler brand has launched a new multicultural marketing campaign for the all-new 2015 Chrysler 200, featuring acclaimed actor Gael García Bernal (Amores Perros, Y Tu Mamá También, The Motorcycle Diaries). The campaign, which debuted Wednesday, March 4, consists of four national television spots across U.S. Hispanic media – one :60 and three :30 commercials – and also includes digital and social initiatives. Key partners for the Chrysler brand include Univision and Telemundo, for which the brand will be a presenting sponsor of La Voz Kids, a  show for family co-viewing in all of broadcast, regardless of language, on Telemundo. The campaign introduces Hispanic consumers to the all-new 2015 Chrysler 200, giving viewers a close-up view of the Chrysler brand’s class-leading advancements. The story is anchored on the message, “Why choose ordinary when you can have extraordinary?”, and supported with “Un Modelo a Seguir” – a nuanced phrase that in Spanish conveys positive messages such as something that inspires and/or something to pay attention to or follow. (It translates literally to “A Model to Follow,” which in the spot refers as much to the Chrysler 200 as it does to Gael García Bernal).The Chrysler brand campaign was created in partnership with Lopez Negrete. Media buying and planning has been done by IPG Mediabrands. The first spot, “Kid, You’re Not Me,” can be viewed here:

In addition to “Vamos Por Ti,” Enterprise is also debuting a new North American television ad that will launch next week on March 16 across primetime broadcast TV and digital, coinciding with some of the brand’s heaviest media buy. The spot, called “Family Reunion,” uses humor to communicate how often Enterprise employees go above and beyond for their customers. In this particular ad, a young woman asks Enterprise to pick her up from a family reunion, and then introduces family members to her “boyfriend” (a.k.a. the Enterprise employee) who willingly plays along. The “Vamos Por Ti” campaign was developed by Bromley and “Family Reunion” was developed by Cannonball Advertising and Promotion.

  • P&G

descargaProcter & Gamble Co. is planning to merge or discontinue more than half its brands (between 90-100) and focus on its top 70-80 brands. Although it may seem as a drastic attempt, it is actually a major strategy shift to speed up the packaged goods giant’s growth. Those top brands have accounted for 90% of company US $83 billion annual sales and 95% of profits over the past three years. The others combined have brought in less than US $100 million in sales annually.

Social Media and its integration with digital and off-line marketing continues to be one of the main opportunities and challenges for marketers. In fact, Social Media Marketing is changing the way major brands advertise. Portada talked to the CMO’s of Chrysler and Wells Fargo and asked them how they go about it.  How can America’s largest companies have a spontaneous voice in the midst of corporate bureaucracy? Is there really a need for their brands to be always on? What Wells Fargo, CMO, Jamie Moldafsky and Chrysler CMO Olivier François have to say. (Both executives will be speaking at AHAA’s upcoming Annual Conference next week).

Jamie Moldafsky
Jamie Moldafsky, CMO, Wells Fargo

Wells Fargo has invested substantially to set up its Social Media Marketing unit. Wells Fargo’s CMO Jamie Moldafsky, tells Portada that the financial services company has  “made a significant investment in social media marketing over the past 5 years. Since then the social media team has helped us listen to and evaluate the voice of the customer very quickly and effectively.” “In the past 18 months we established new policies and processes, engaged partners and people, and launched new platforms to move from social test/learn to having a robust social business. We have a hub and spoke model where an enterprise team develops the capabilities, accelerants and guardrails for the company to follow.”

Wells Fargo has a team of more than 75 social practitioners that meet regularly across all of our businesses to build and support our social media content and programs.

Moldafsky adds that “in 2013, we significantly increased engagement, fans and followers and have seen improvements in sentiment by integrating and moving toward a socially engaged business. We’re excited about the engagement we’ve experienced so far.”  We have a terrific team of more than 75 social practitioners that meet regularly across all of our businesses to build and support our social media content and programs. Social media also allows us to spread our marketing messages very quickly and effectively, particularly when integrated into our marketing campaigns. When our millions of fans tell their friends that they like our vehicles, that helps change perception more than anything else.”

In a different sector, automotive, Chrysler also is putting a substantial amount of resources into social media.”At Chrysler Group, we know that our brands and each nameplate appeal to different people for different reasons, and our social media strategy is a reflection of that. We have the ability to talk to people of different ethnicities, but also different life stages, different interests and we use social media to listen to and have conversations with them. The brand voice and tone in social media is consistent with our other marketing channels,” says Chrysler CMO Olivier Francois.

Do Brands have to be always on?

Is there really a need for brands to be always on? How do Chrysler and Wells Fargo answer this question?”The real time feedback is very insightful. We feel that we need to be where our consumers are whenever they need us. As such, we moderate social conversations 24/7, through established social media command centers on both coasts (Charlotte and San Francisco) and a small team presence in Asia,” says Wells Fargo’s Moldafsky. She points out that as , Wells Fargo continues to increase its speed to market, responsiveness and relevance in the market, “we will continue building out relevant capabilities to meet our customers in the channels they prefer.”

You may have seen how quickly our Ram social media team moved when Jimmy Fallon said he was shopping for a new truck on The Tonight Show.
Olivier François
Olivier François, CMO, Chrysler

Should a brand like  Chrysler be “always on”?   “Social media is always on, and it certainly doesn’t stay contained to work hours,” says Chrysler’s François.  As an example he cites the Ram social media team:”You may have seen how quickly our Ram social media team moved when Jimmy Fallon said he was shopping for a new truck on “The Tonight Show” a few weeks ago.  Via Twitter, Ford and GM suggested he look at their vehicles. Ram did the same thing, but took it a step further by Tweeting a challenge, bringing a Ram truck to his studio to test drive, collaborated with key brand partners to help spread the word with a unique hashtag, and ultimately getting an on-air mention. Speed and flexibility are key in leveraging real-time opportunities. But François also cautions that there is a need to be selective when it comes to directing social media resources: “Brands still need to be strategic on how they allocate their resources. Being on 24/7 to cover every social property is a huge investment in resources. Brands need to be strategic in how to provide the most coverage and make the most impact.”

Wells Fargo’s Jamie Moldafsky and Chrysler’s Olivier Francois will be speaking at AHAA’s upcoming Annual Conference in Miami’s Eden Roc Hotel  on April 28-30th, 2014.

  • Nationwide

ntwideNationwide is launching this month a new TV Spot in which a leather-clad insurance pitchwoman is sneaking into a new dwelling: an apartment. The new ad, which will debut Thursday, was made by McKinney, Durham, N.C. Nationwide intends to transmit the company’s shift for the insurer as it puts more emphasis on selling renter’s insurance in addition to home insurance. The company´s goal is to sign up more young-adult customers who continue to delay home-buying in favor of renting and who are still truly not covered.However, while Nationwide is targeting renters, the insurer wanted the ad to also resonate for potential homeowners-insurance customers.The lead character, played by country singer Jana Kramer, replaces fire-damaged appliances like a toaster and coffee maker with new versions. As opposed to last year´s ad, the spot, which will get heavy play during March Madness, is set in an urban apartment rather than a home.

Here is the ad:

Car manufacturers have come back strongly as major marketers over the last few years. They have also been increasingly focusing on the Hispanic consumer (e.g. see Chevy’s Silverado). This is definitely also the case of Chrysler according to its CMO Olivier François. François, born in Paris (France) is also the CMO of Chrysler owned Fiat S.p.A. Portada  interviewed François, a speaker at  AHAA’s upcoming Annual Conference.

Olivier FrançoisFrançois tells Portada that what is great about his brands – Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram Trucks and Fiat – is that “they each have a strong presence among Hispanics and represent significant sales opportunities in key segments.” Chrysler Group has specific multicultural marketing strategies for each brand and its individual vehicle nameplates. “We align these goals and objectives with each individual brand team, and then tailor our multicultural marketing and advertising campaigns to communicate with the target consumers for each brand or nameplate,” François adds. François points out that “one in three people in the U.S. today are multicultural and many of the largest U.S. cities today are already majority multicultural.” The challenge, according to Chrysler’s CMO, is to “continue to understand the lens through which consumers see brands and integrate cultural values and insights in our messages to connect emotionally.”

Hispanic Campaigns for Chrysler …

François highlights recent examples of Hispanic market campaigns  including Ram truck’s partnership with Juanes. “We launched a multi-phase Spanish-language campaign in November 2013, continuing with the “A Todo,, Con Todo” theme, and the final spot in the series “La Luz” (The Light) centered on Juanes and his road crew as they prepared the stage for his concert shows.” Interestingly François adds that  “the large pickup is the 3rd biggest segment among U.S. Latinos and the top truck markets in the United States have large multicultural populations.” (Major Hispanic markets also guide Chevy’s Silverado advertising campaigns: according to our recent interview with Maria Rohrer Director of Marketing and Strategy for Chevrolet Trucks.)

Fiat has a legacy in Latin America and Latinos are 27% more likely to purchase small cars versus the total U.S. population.

François says that Chrysler is targeting Millenials for the Dodge Dart brand:“We’ve developed ads both in Spanish and English appealing to the young Millennial consumers while avoiding trans-creations. The most recent campaign with Pitbull, launched in 2013, included television, digital and print elements.” For the Jeep brand, a 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee ad is featuring the poem in Spanish “Caminante” by Antonio Machado targeted to Hispanics. In addition, François notes that  “last  year we created an ad set in New Orleans illustrating stories of effort towards greatness in an authentic and meaningful way targeted for African-Americans.”

 and Fiat brands.

François  is also CMO of Chrysler owned CMO for  Fiat S.p.A, which in 2011  returned to the United States  after an absence of nearly three decades. The marketer asserts that Fiat has a strong legacy in Latin America which can positively impact the automakers brand perception among U.S. Hispanics: “Latinos are also a long-term sales opportunity for the Fiat brand. Fiat has a legacy in Latin America and Latinos are 27% more likely to purchase small cars versus the total U.S. population.” “Our Fiat campaigns with J-Lo and Charlie Sheen definitely put Fiat on the map and bought us in 18 months the awareness that it took other auto companies five to seven years to achieve. J-Lo’s endorsement, which was seen by some as a risk, grew Fiat’s brand awareness from 8% to 49% almost overnight. And Charlie Sheen, notorious in his own right, was the right pat the right time to put the spotlight on the sporty Abarth model. Today the top four Fiat markets in the United States are also top Hispanic markets, building off this momentum is critical.”

François will be one of the main speakers at AHAA’s upcoming Annual Conference “Thinking under the Influence” which will take place in Miami’s Eden Rock Hotel on April. 28-30.
