OSBI Consulting

Key Findings and Recommendations

Recommendations

  • Target markets (New Mothers, New Homeowners, Re-modelers, & Epicureans) are chosen because they inherently care about something.
  • Positioning statement (“When You Care….Pure. Proven. Powerful.”) developed to specifically speak to the target markets. Care is focus of the positioning.

Key Finding #1

People clean because they care

slide4

Illinois MBA

OSBI Consulting

Key Findings and Recommendations

Recommendations

  • Focus on the “purity” of Bon Ami’s formula. Pure becomes a focal point in positioning.
  • To emphasize purity, switch from cardboard to clear plastic container. Allows customers to see the “pure” white powder.

Key Finding #2

Competitors rely upon additives (chlorine, dyes, & perfumes) in their positioning

slide5

Key Findings and Recommendations

Recommendations

  • Develop website that is both informational and educational in nature.
  • Use product packaging to highlight website address, thus encouraging customers to visit the site.
  • Include multi-purpose verbiage on back label to emphasize the variety of surfaces that Bon Ami can clean.

Key Finding #3

Customers either are not aware of OR do not know what surfaces Bon Ami can be used

slide6

Key Findings and Recommendations

Recommendations

Key Finding #4

  • In the short-term, marketing focus should remain on the identified target markets.
  • In the long-term a separate brand can be created that uses a formula containing bleach and/or scents to attract the Hispanic and African-American markets.

Bon Ami’s formula (unscented and powdered) does not appeal to Hispanics and African Americans

External Analysis – 5 Forces Model

External Analysis Implications:

  • Positioning will be very important as the household cleansing category is highly competitive with a variety of products.
  • Advertising must resonate with customers.●Bon Ami does not have marketing funds to outspend competition, so the ad copy must be memorable.

Laddering

  • The mission of laddering is to discover the core values of users – personal drivers that explain why they are purchasing and buying certain products.
  • Identifies opportunities to differentiate a brand through personal values, rather than specific product attributes.

Competition’s Positioning

  • Competitors tout bleaching power to clean.
  • Use tests performed by team showed that Bon Ami cleans just as effectively without the bleach.
    • Point of differentiation is “less is more.”
  • Challenge:
    • Convince customers that non-bleach formula cleans as well or better than bleach formulas.

Current Bon Ami Positioning

“Hasn’t Scratched Yet”

  • Recommendation: Downplay primary position because:
  • It does not provide a strong point of differentiation since most competitors already claim “no scratch”.
  • It is a negative statement, rather than a positive one. It may imply that it will eventually scratch, just not yet. The positioning should not leave open a potential negative consequence in the minds of consumers.
  • Today’s consumer does not identify with the story behind the chick not scratching for food. The chick, however, can help represent the soft and gentle aspects of Bon Ami.

Why Hispanic Adapters Do Buy Powder

  • CLEANS FAST: When Hispanics use spray cleaners, they have to wait a few minutes before cleaning can begin. Therefore, powder cleanser is faster since they do not have to wait.
  • CLEANS BETTER: It’s more powerful and can take out difficult stains. Hispanics say that you can feel the powder cleaning, which reassures them a good cleaning. They feel accomplished when everything is perfectly “white”.
  • MORE CONVENIENT: No bothersome chlorine smell.
  • SMELLS CLEAN: Although the powder cleanser is not scented, the cleaned area “smells clean”.
  • FAMILIAR: Hispanics used powder in their native country. Some could describe themselves as native Indians since they could not get accustomed to sprays.
  • PACKAGING COLOR: It is important because it suggests it is clean.
  • SPECIAL NOTE: Interviewees said that powder is especially for cleaning dirty spots because you can really use its power there.

  • She wants to always have a clean house so that she can feel that she is doing a good job as a housewife.

Why Hispanics Don’t Buy Bon Ami

  • Hispanics have never heard of it.
  • If they are prone to adopting an American product, they will use a well-known brand.
  • Latin people are afraid to use a product that no one uses, especially one that “Americans do not use”.
  • Housekeepers consider this kind of product unpractical. With the spray product, they just apply the liquid with one hand and clean with a towel with the other hand. Using a powder requires much more work. Implications: Too much work Too much time Too much energy Too messy to use
  • They are afraid of using powder.
  • Housewives feel powder products are not socially acceptable. Not modern enough Negative implications
