Four Brands with Wild and Creative Marketing Strategies
1. Levi’s Strauss & Company
Levi’s has a great marketing campaign that is driven by wholeness and unity for everyone. In an article titled, “Ready to Work in Braddock,” (2010) they took their followers along with them to a small town called Braddock, Pennsylvania to stimulate America’s economy, bulking up the workforce, and of course, wear Levi’s.
In last years commercial (22.6 million views) the concept of unity and wholeness grows globally. The tagline of their commercial says, “Let’s live how we dance.” Watch the video here to be inspired by the world coming together to dance!
This brings the world together on one point: A happiness and joyful life in Levi’s. Which dancer stood out to you?
Lululemon used no words in this video focusing on sounds with fast intercuts of images and videos of our fast and slow paced daily lives. They made the decision to start the video with one main point, “Om.” They then lead the viewers and fans through a series of life experiences full of sounds and actions, implying at the end that Om is sacred life and Lululemon (making an equivalent to “Om”) is leading this sacredness behind all the action.
