Tire Client 2010 Request For Proposal February 20th, 2010
Background 2010 is a critical year for Tire Client. After a year of reduced media support, we want to accelerate gains in brand health metrics –Brand Awareness, Consideration, Purchase Intent While growth of Light Truck tires continues to surge, we are looking to grow consumer and industry perception of our Passenger Tires (which currently lags LT), but not at the expense of Light Truck In order to achieve growth in 2010, Tire Client will be increasing media support for the brand behind a multimedia campaign ad campaign –Including TV, Print and Online As part of our efforts, we are reaching out to select key partners to assist us in developing media platforms to help us achieve our brand goals in 2010 The new Tire Client creative campaign will be launching in mid-late June, as such we would like to look at opportunities that are consistent with that time-period –However proposals meet brand objectives with timing that is not consistent with launch timing will also be considered 1
Brand Positioning 2 There are currently two creative campaigns that are under consideration for Tire Client in Based on testing, we will be moving forward with only one. These are outlined below to give a sense of brand communications: Exhilaration: Tire Client tires let you have fun on any surface you choose. That's because our tires are designed by people who actually race, climb rocks, navigate trails and basically live to drive. So our tires don't merely keep you safely on the road, they give you the kind of performance that lets you dominate it. And as any driving enthusiast knows, better performance equals more fun. The hallmark of the Exhilaration campaign is bringing the joy of driving on Tire Client tires to life. Bolt On Performance: There are many performance upgrades that you can bolt on to your car. But the easiest upgrade by far is a set of Tire Client tires. No other tire brand on earth has a richer racing history backed by products that are designed to give drivers maximum performance no matter how they drive. That's because the people who design and engineer our tires are the very same ones who race, rock crawl, trail ride and drive hard on them every day. So when we say it's easy to add better grip, cornering, acceleration, toughness, etc.with our tires, we know it's true. The Bolt On campaign uses simple visual metaphors to explain the benefits of adding Tire Client tires to your car while pointing out your own performance limitations as a human being.
Gearheads Young, single males (M18-34) with a passion for autos and driving. –Passion influences their purchasing behavior in this arena. –More likely to prefer customized vehicles to those just hanging on the lot, and dont have a problem paying more for specialty tires Approach life and their interests with extreme enthusiasm. –They immerse themselves in each interest, learning as much as possible about each one. –They arent simply content with what they have, but want more from life.
