Trawling the township shopper market
HiInteresting article.Care to give an example of one of the companies that have worked with Foshizi and also what the campaign was.I mean, its one thing to say they have done great work and showed a brand how to understand the way a community ticks. I would like to see how it was all interpreted through seeing the actual "end product" that was placed at the area.

Lovely informative article.I think most of us business people are aware that it does make sense to maintain your existing clients, but we just don't really focus on actually doing it.

May I disagree with you. FNB's Steve ad campaign had a lot of personality. And because everyone knew about Steve they went to hear what Steve was saying. I do agree that it shouldn't lose the message though ;-)

The yellow car makes me think of MTN. They should have used a blue one. Consistency.I was so focused on all the dancing and the funny background music that I still do not know what you were advertising.

With all the Amarula ad campaigns (the Facebook African original and billboards) I would have expected an African lady's voice. With a black accent.

[Township Marketing]: Brand Communication
Hey titiyou cant just assume that the Brand managers blindly went into building the brands to where they are today. Market research is done before anything goes, and them making these brands for a niche market allowed for the Soweto people to aspire to have these products. I mean if everyone knew of the brand and everyone had the product it wouldnt have that special status that it has now. *just a thought ;-)

@ mike du toit, I fully agree with you on the part of counterfeit goods. Jayson, advertising at Sandton and Soweto wouldnt make sense for the Brand Managers. I mean, it took them lots of time to build the brand to what it is today. eg Gucci has its own target whom they ar reaching (Sandton higher LSM people). Wont advertising in Soweto take that effect that a brand is for a niche market?I think leave Sandton adverts in Sandton that way the the Soweto aspiring people have the brands that they aspire to have.
