The perfume strategy
Within my experience of 13 years in the marketing field, I have seen many ways for a brand to market their products. Most of the activations have an aggressive approach that I call the “Perfume Strategy”. For whom who had the chance to visit malls in the UAE, when by mistake you approach by 2 meters a perfume stand, suddenly out of nowhere a guy jumps on you like a Ninja and spray you out and ask you to buy! Just like this!
And next time when I approach a stand I take my precaution and plan to walk far, far away from them. By having this physical reaction I am unconsciously creating a barrier with the brand. I am sure you have experienced this type of situation.
So what will happen here? You will physically and mentally experience an aggression, and that aggression will let your brain block the brand. That’s right, by doing an aggressive approach during your activations you will have high chance to let your prospects have a bad experience and link it to your brand. Can you imagine that? And your goal was to promote that brand…
What is the best strategy then?
- Provide a unique experience to your prospects, and amaze them in order for them to open their heart to your brand
- Once the connection is made, you will have then and only then fully communicate your marketing message
- Increase your sales by providing them, for example, an Ecoupon, or a participation in a lottery
