Shiseido CEO Says Japanese Brands Need To Appeal To Consumers' Emotions

November 11, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Japanese brands must appeal more to customers’ emotions, according to Shiseido president and CEO Masahiko Uotani. Speaking at the Nikkei Global Management Forum in Tokyo, Uotani said Japanese brands have strong “intrinsic” values, such as technology, functionality, and service; however, they often fail to put equal emphasis on “extrinsic” values, such as emotional fulfillment. Formerly head of Coca-Cola Japan, Uotani is introducing various changes to Shisedio, including establishing regional headquarters in Europe and the United States. Also, Shiseido is investing significantly in research and development.

“Premiumization” Emerges As Southeast Asia’s Middle-Class Surges

November 11, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Evidence of Southeast Asia’s rising standard of living is found in the consumer trend toward “premiumization,” according Nielsen. By 2030, Southeast Asia will be home to three billion middle-class consumers. Seventeen percent already say they can spend freely, and do, especially on premium-price grocery and personal care products. In the past year, there has been a 21 percent increase in the proportion of premium-priced goods sold compared to mainstream and value brands. Mainstream products still dominate the market, but “a definitive shift” is taking place among middle-class consumers toward premium brands. Marketers can take advantage of this by introducing “innovative products that are competitively priced.”

Walmart Slotting Fees Will Hurt Smaller Brands With Little Room To Maneuver

November 9, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Last June Walmart announced it would change payment terms and charge fees, including slotting (shelf space) fees and distribution center fees. It was a setback for smaller marketers and suppliers who, it is felt, may have to compensate for the increased costs by cutting back on innovation and marketing, a bad move because brands need to advertise to survive. Larger suppliers, like P&G and Clorox, have more flexibility. They can pressure their own suppliers and find other ways to trim costs. A former retail executive says the big question for younger, smaller brands is whether to “jump into the Walmart game at all” or figure out some way to build the business through other channels, like Amazon.com.

Today’s Technologies Thwart The Marketing Message

November 6, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Modern technologies that allow ad-weary consumers to avoid advertising on TV and online have got marketers very worried. One of the biggest, Unilever, is no exception, as one of its media mavens said in a recent podcast. “We’re having genuine issues over how to reach our consumers,” said Babs Rangaiah. Among the technologies impeding efforts to get the message to potential customers are DVRs and ad blocking. Rangaiah, however, says ad blockers may be a cloud with silver lining. They may get advertisers to improve online ads that create a poor user experience, hog bandwidth and sometimes infect devices with malware. To improve the online ad experience, Unilever works directly with platforms (i.e., Google, Facebook) “to create something that’s fit for purpose for today’s world.”

Unilever developed an advanced programmatic advertising strategy in order to get from digital marketing what it is paying for, according to the company’s global VP of media for Europe and the Americas, Sarah Mansfield.

Mansfield said the industry has reassured Unilever of full support for its demand that digital ads be seen 100 percent on a web page.
