Dove: REAL BEAUTY The "Real Beauty" campaign has been turning heads since it launched nearly ten years ago. It's a simple but effective approach to persona marketing. Dove designed ads around a topic they knew was sensitive but deeply meaningful to their customers. Laura Baddish

Marlboro: THE MARLBORO MAN This campaign began running as early as 1955. It represented the power of a brand when it creates a lifestyle around its product. Whatever you're selling needs to fit into your audience's lifestyle - or, at the very least, their lifestyle they wish the had. Laura Baddish

California Milk Processor Board: GOT MILK? This ad is revolutionary because it didn't target people who weren’t drinking milk it focused on the consumers who already were. Get your audience to appreciate and use your product more often. Transform them into advocates. Good marketing can tell them why they should continue enjoying the product or service you already provide. Laura Baddish

Slide 8

Clairol: DOES SHE OR DOESN'T SHE? These ads didn’t want every woman on the street preaching about the product. They wanted women to understand that their product was so good that others wouldn’t be able to tell if they were even using it. The lesson is that simply conveying how and why your product works is enough for consumers. Showing is more effective than telling. Laura Baddish

Slide 9
