tutorial outlined proprietary

The Week 9 tutorial outlined proprietary tools/processes implemented by advertising agencies.  Understanding this is key for those in the Account Servicing department.
They are as follows:-
1.    ‘360 Degree Branding’ – Ogilvy
2.    ‘Brand Asset Valuator’ – Y&R
3.    ‘McCann Brand Clout’ – McCann
4.    ‘Disruption’ – TBWA
5.    ‘Love Marks’ – Saatchi & Saatchi
6.    ‘Thompson Total Branding’ – JWT
Select any 2 of the above and compare (and contrast) their processes using views from various sources.
1.  Do not simply report views as this merely restates (not transforms) the information. Appraise and evaluate contents made and strive to identify common themes, weighing the commentary of others whilst forming your own conclusions (using the sources as support).
So for example one simplistic approach in forming an argument may read as follows:-  In analysing the views made by Smith (2000), Jones (1998) and Morgan (2013), there was a consensus that the elements of the process focused on consumer insights.  Smith (2002) further supports this by stating that the consumer is key and is ‘front and centre’.

supposed to be evaluating this work against?

benchmarks of success?

How to evaluate creative?
Does it contain a ‘Big Idea’ – something that interprets the
proposition and strikes at the hearts and minds of the
customers in an inspiring manner?
Unless your advertising contains a big idea, it will pass like
a ship in the night. It is the factor that will motivate your
customers and allow your colleagues to grasp what you
want to achieve with your communication.

Audience Takeaway
Evian: Baby & Me
Situation Analysis (Challenges)…
Market growth has become flat. Slightly moderate
rebound driven by flavoured and carbonated waters
Still water often de-prioritised in the port-folio of nonalcoholic
beverages groups
Bottled water becoming a trivialised and price-driven
Evian currently fights hard to maintain its leadership in
front of growing tap water consumption and competitors
that play a tough price war
Evian: Baby & Me
Business objectives (Client Brief)…
Reconnect with the youth platform (15+)
Reinforce the youth message and build proximity to
enhance brand preference and bonding
Generate additional volume sales (penetration in
premium markets/frequency in mainstream ones)
Evian: Baby & Me
Communication Objectives….
Reconnect on the in-depth meaning of the youth for
the Evian brand
Justify the brand utility and give consumers a
good reason to pay 3 times the price for water that
flows freely on tap, in times of recession
Evian: Baby & Me
Media Objectives…
Create maximum amount of earned media from a low
Leverage the power of people
Prioritise eventful activation and maximise quality of
the brand experience
Push but don’t impose – expandable via a click, but
also skipable. A share logic rather than a mass media
pressure with an hour by hour check maximum amount
of earned media from a low
Evian: Baby & Me
Youths 15+, Evian’s fans, clients and friends
Psychographic segmentation – as life expectancy lengthens, youths
have become one of the strongest stirring aspiration for people. They do
not only expect to live longer, but want to live better. They also feel the
need to be empowered, to be at the centre of things and need to be given
means to express themselves.
Behavioral segmentation – people do not differentiate waters from a
rationale standpoint and tend to share beliefs that all waters are equal.
Promotion has become a key driver of the category. In economic
recession, challenges on purchasing power make consumers more
reluctant to buy bottled water which is 3 times the cost of tap water.
Bottled water is a commodity and buying it makes you a bad citizen.
Media segmentation – they feel the new digital world gives them
control over the aspects of their lives. 61% think social media gives
younger generations a new power
Evian: Baby & Me
Creative Strategy…
Release entertainment content that touches people,
makes them feel concerned and gives them desire to
share, engage and interact
Break free from the water category rules and act like a
big lovable and exciting brand (Evian is not a water brand
but a soft drink that is about sheer entertainment)
Tone of Voice
Exhilarating and entertaining
Evian: Baby & Me
Big Idea…
Invite everyone to meet their inner baby (by shedding
new light on the youth benefit) in an explicit and personal
manner – starting with their own self
‘Express the child we have in us’
(Evian Baby & Me stages encounters of adults with their
reflection as babies)
Reason to Believe
Entertainment content touches people, makes them feel
concerned and gives them desire to share
