NEW CREATIVE WORK BRIEF |
Mayfair is one of two cheap cigarette brands
in Gallaher's portfolio, the other being Sovereign. The brand
only receives tactical advertising support each year majoring
on price after a budget tax increase. Our ad last November, "£2.39.
It's not a taxing decision" helped to boost sales after the
budget tax increase.
In the event that Labour win the election, there
will almost certainly be a mini-budget in June, that is almost
certain to hit cigarettes very hard.
What do we want this work to achieve?
We need to inform people that Mayfair represents
exceptional value for money. If we do our job properly then Mayfair
should be able to attract more smokers in the post budget period
which is when people are most aware of the costs of their smoking.
Who should the work speak to and how do they currently
view the brand?
The brand has a bias towards female smokers.
It is strongly skewed to C2DE's and its core age group are 25-34
What is the single minded proposition?
Post budget Mayfair offers even better value
What is the substantiation for this proposition?
Mayfair King Size and Mayfair Lights will remain
at £2.55 no matter what happens in the June budget.
Are there any mandatory inclusions, legal restrictions,
"Sacred Cows", other relevant comments?
Feature both 20s packs with £2.55 on pack
We also need to mention that they're "also
available in 10's".
Legal copy "Offer only applies to packs
