Chapter 49 Red X Campaign In 1990, Intel came close to being the best corporate marketer in any industry in the world. Intel being a component maker, traditionally it would see little value to marketing to mainstream consumers. “Vogue” campaign featuring high fashion ads was largely a failure. Introduction of 386 created a lot of customer backlash and a growing frustration at Intel. Result was the dramatic “Red X” campaign in 1989 led by Dennis Carter, Vice President Intel Corporate Marketing Group. Two lessons for Intel –existing paradigm of semiconductor advertising was no longer valid and talk to consumers directly.

So Intel set about crafting a cleverer and more sophisticated campaign with Dahlin Smith White Advertising firm – “Intel Inside”. To make Intel microprocessor CPU more important than anything on the outside. Andy behaved like Bob Noyce when he backed this campaign. He wanted a sweeping victory over the competition. “Intel Inside” was one of the most successful branding campaigns in the business world. and ultimately Intel won the microprocessor wars.
