  • 1. Commentary On Global Faceoff Espoir Case Meral RAGOM ( I. Part ) Halil YILDIRIM (II. Part)

2. I. PART : SUMMARY OF THE CASE 3. Case starts with discussion about idea of Natasha Singh ,( excutive vice president & global marketing officer) of $1.1 billion Espoir cosmetic with Ed Johnson CEO, about: Associate Espoir new summer line with the release all over the world by sponsoring Diannas she Devils movie to lounch a global-brand building strategy. She emphesise their three stars are located in Europe, Asia and South America as fastest growing markets . She offer create three new lipistik and nail polish combinations in the right palette for each of the three stars ,and then associated stars with the advertising. When films gets release in each country ,we can lunch new product in specially design combination pack,with new name as Espoirs anniversary line (next year they wll celebrate 50 years) 4. 1.How you can find enough budget? Answer of Singh : North America marketting head will foot some of the bills, Two of our stars have big ethnic markets in U.S Just i need to get other regions to chip in, 2. If recession in U.S get any worse i force to cut marketing budgets again,country heads will have little left for local advertisings after paying for global promotion. They will blame you if you dont meet targets ! 5. Meeting with Jacques Dubois Espoirs marketing head for Europe. He had warmed to idea of the big movie based promotion to mark the companys golden anniversary . He admitted that Espoirs archrival, Revlon, had boosted top-of-mind awareness by tying in with movies like the 2002 Bond film, Die Another Day, During the disscution he didnt like the idea about set up a central Web site that would allow people to buy customized products from Espoir. She wanted to test the initiative first in North America and extend it to Europe once but Dubois thinks that this idea will not work. A Web site for European customers must have a different look and feel from the Americansite. It should also have a different name if it is to appeal to them. 6. Singh try to sound out marketing head of each region in person : Estern Europe Meeting with Sylko Mazur ,the head of Espoirs operations in Estern Europe. He dosnt accept to have any part to global promotion His disagrement was based on differences between Eastern Europe and world. Movie-based promotions wont do anything for their sales. He was thought that they are in the beauty business,not the movie business! appointing beauty queens like Miss Russia and Miss Ukraine as brand ambassadors would strike a chord with customers, in Eastern Europe and we can create acontest-based promotion. Customers will write in with suggestions for new colors, each beauty queen will pick her favorite, and therewill be lots and lots of prizes! 7. Argued of singh about Mazur idea : First :we have different world,in these days Second :Ive stayed away from beauty contests because they are off brand. The Espoir woman is smart, independent, a risk taker. She doesnt identify with pageant queens. Third: Ive chosen colors for the global promotion that will work in Eastern Europe also .i will admitt do modify global strategies sometimes! Argued of Mazur : the promotion will eat into my marketing budget, and I cannot afford that. I need to be quick, tactical, and responsive to local needs, and your templates and rules about standardization only slow me down 8. Singh try to sound out marketing head of each region in person :South Asia Meeting with Ravi Narayan head of South Asia marketing . Their discussion was based mostly on problems that they are face for growing their market in indea . Problems were as : Competition is getting stiffer since several Asian brands have launched their products in India in the last six months. Local brands are offering large discounts, and direct marketing in cosmetics is catching on. He mentioned that consumer habits are changing faster than their imagine. So cause of those evidence that he visited during his trp he argueed with this plann but he add also A global strategy will resonate in India in some cases, but I doubt if we will be able to do away with local marketing initiatives. There are large income differences in India, and it all depends on the market you want to tap. Moreover, its tough to overcome cultural differences. 9. Making decision with ceo Johnson Every country head believes his or her country is unique. And its risky for them to pin their hopes on a global promotion when theyve never done so before. Whats more, Im not sure our brand has the same image all over the world. Why should we waste money on a global campaign that may end up confusing our customers? We will save costs by building brands through global strategies and allowing local initiatives to drive sales managers concede that the quality of campaigns we produce is better than those done locally. 10.
