Marketers are innovative when it comes to product positioning. They have to be. Analyzing and selecting a positioning strategy can mean the difference between success and failure for a new or existing product.
Product endorsers have been an integral part of marketing for centuries. Popular music has become a major part of ad campaigns. Song selection coupled with a product endorser for a multiplatform campaign is a way to differentiate from other brands. Two recent examples include:
Caress’ Brazilian Exotic Oil Infusions upped the ante by using sexy Pussycat Doll, Nicole Scherzinger as endorser who also sang a “Brazilian-inspired reinterpretation” of Duran Duran’s Rio.
Then there is Unilever Sunsilk’s launch of a global brand campaign that features mega star Madonna and is the first of its kind using an artist of such stature to launch a global brand.
