GM COLLEGE DISCOUNT PROGRAM EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
THE First Category was what type of car is our target dring currently, and how did they get the vehicle? The survey showed GM is driven by 12.7% of our target, which was 4th to Ford at 1st, Toyota at 2nd and Honda at 3rd. Another key insight was 64.1% of our target is currently driving a vehicle that was bought by someone other than themselves; meanwhile, 36% of our target bought their own vehicles.
overview We surveyed 1,644 people within our target to uncover how college students and recent graduates currently see the GM brand.
The survey showed 79.6% bought their cars used. Since almost 80% of our target buys used cars, we discovered that we must turn this threat into an opportunity and show incentives to why our target needs newer vehicles and how the GM college discount program is the best avenue for newer models.
In the Second category of research, we sought out to uncover how our target views GM, as a brand. In our research, we encountered that GM ranked last in innovation technology. Our target prefers Ford, Honda, Nissan and Toyota in innovation technology over GM. This research tells us that our strategies need to showcase the innovation technology GM has to offer. We also learned that when our target thinks GM, they think about SUVs and gas-guzzlers. We must overcome this weakness by showcasing many of our gas-efficient sedans and crossovers. Our target also believes our SUVs and Crossovers are excellent quality for heavy lifting and pulling, but they do not feel they are versatile and accommodating for many different lifestyles. Another insight we found is our target is unaware of the different brands GM has to offer, especially the gas-efficient sedans. If they draw this connection, then our college discount program will be more successful.
What we FOUND OUT... FOR The third category, we sought to figure out exactly what our target demands when buying a new vehicle AND how much would they spend and where they would look. We discovered that our target is focused on price/discount (38.7%) above any other aspect of the car. Gas mileage (33.5%) was a close second while the rest rank in order from most important to least important: Safety, Style, Brand, Performance and Technology. In addition, one-third of the participants said they would be interested in purchasing a hybrid or electric car in the future. The last consumer preference we encountered is how much our target is willing to spend on a new car. Of those surveyed, 43.8% said they would be willing to spend $10-15 thousand, and 33.9% said they would spend $16-20 thousand. When preparing to purchase a new car, over 50% are most likely to gain more information from family and friend, then they will look through automobile magazines and websites. They will predominantly search on ebay, craigslist, cars.com and carmax. In addition, we learned that they will search keywords such as “cheap cars,” “cheap (brand),” “low gas mileage.”
STrengths • Perceived as an “American Brand” • Great line of SUVs, Crossovers and Trucks • GM Program offers discounts instead of only rebates. • GM Program offers the biggest discounts on newer vehicles.
OPPORTUNITIES • Low awareness: we can create our own niche in the market • Prove to target we have gas-efficient sedans • Re-establish positive brand attitudes.
WEAKNESSES • Weak brand awareness among target • Hold the positions as “gas-guzzler” • Millennials and recent graduates are unfamiliar with how to perceive the brand
THREATS • Competitor rebate programs • American Economy • Personal buying and selling on Ebay and Craigslist
GM COLLEGE DISCOUNT PROGRAM SWOT
Dependent scholars are students who are financially dependent on a third party and are currently working on receiving their degrees. Many of these students are just beginning the process of establishing credit. Media Savvy. Most Scholars are very involved in college life.
Independent scholars are students who are financially independent are currently working on receiving their degrees. Many of these students are just beginning the process of establishing credit. Media Savvy. Most independent scholars are not as involved in college life because they must have full-time or part-time jobs.
Dependent diplomas are either in graduate programs or are 0-2 years out of college. Diplomas are very driven to make a name for themselves in their aspired job arenas. Most dependent diplomas will not have serious loans that would effect their purchasing decisions.
Independent diplomas are either in graduate programs or are 0-2 years out of college. Independent diplomas are very driven to make a name for themselves in their aspired job arenas. Many independent diplomas will have loans to pay or have already started to pay them off. These loans have very big impacts on purchasing decisions.
financially relying on 3rd party
GM COLLEGE DISCOUNT PROGRAM Target
Achievers are in Graduate/PhD programs or are 0-2 years out of school. Achievers will have the most money spend when buying a car, and they will appreciate the discounts the most. Achievers are financially independent and have expenses which will certainly affect purchasing decisions.
MAKE YOUR MOVE
THE BIG IDEA
MAKE YOUR MOVE
MAKE YOUR MOVE
Why it works The Make Your Move big idea encapsulates the transition between college and the endless opportunities that await in the near future. Our IMC campaign encourages our target to invest in their future and build long-lasting relationships on the way. Our Make Your move campaign positions the GM College Discount Program as brand that is an expert in automotives, while being primarily focused on building customer relationships.
OUR NICHE The GM College Discount Programâ€™s niche in the market is to emphasize the ability to be relevant across all media platforms and college campuses. The GM College Discount Program must distinguish itself as a brand that is more concerned on building customer relationships than building revenue. The program will not only be known for having the best opportunity for savings, but it will be the most interactive way to connect with an automobile brand with intent of making a purchase.
GM COLLEGE DISCOUNT PROGRAM OBJECTIVES AND GOALS
MAKE YOUR MOVE
PERSONALITY AND TONE POSITIONING STATEMENT
For college students and recent graduates who value premium customer service & savings in their transition, the GM College Discount Program is the elite platform that transforms the brand-to-customer experience.
SINCERE AUTHENTIC RELEVANT
GM COLLEGE DISCOUNT PROGRAM PERSONALITY AND TONE
A sincere guide, authentic, relevant and media savvy. GM is funny, not cute. Genuine, not fake. GM are experts who are trustworthy. GM College Discount Program will establish these attributes by building relationships through customer /brand interaction via social media and the gameday event. The GM programâ€™s agenda is to build positive customer insight and belief in the brand. People dont care what you know, until they know that you care. GM cares and has the savings you need.
MAKE YO U R MOVE
MAKE YOUR MOVE
OBJECTIVES AND GOALS Establish Positive Attitudes with the Target.
Our primary objective is to boost Brand Awareness with college students and recent graduates. Our goal is for college students and recent graduates to know that GM is a brand that makes your needs, their needs. The objective is for our target to know that GM is a brand that wants to help its customers in the recession. We want college students and recent graduates to know and feel that the GM College Discount Program is the help these customers have been looking for.
Building and maintaining brand loyalty for the program. College students and recent graduates must have personal, physical interactions with our brand. Our focus is for these students and recent graduates to feel that we want to be in their lives to help them, instead of just selling vehicles. We must earn this consumer insight. We earn it by knowing what and where they are going to search for a car and being there. Whether it is online, or in a magazine, our target must know and feel that the GM college discount program is an opportunity available for them right now. The first and most important perception we want for the program is to be the help in a time of need.
In addition to showing our target that GM wants to help, we must make it clear to them that we are relevant and always available. The goal is to meet this target right where they are and deliver exactly what they need. We are dedicated to be as relevant, helpful and fun as we will be during big college football games, through social media.
In addition to the first potential customer insight, we want the GM College Discount Program to be a brand they can have fun interacting with. GM will build these positive attitudes by creating funny commercials, print ads, videos, blog posts, and tweets all encapsulating the idea that many drivers in our target need to be rescued from their rundown, unreliable, old vehicles. Their old cars are bringing them down and our program will bring them back up. Just brainstorm the creative and hilarious possibilities.
The GM college discount must become and remain relevant through constant opportunities for interaction with the brand and other brand users.
We must position GM college discount program as a brand with a personality that is completely dedicated to helping its customers.
Interactivity with the Brand. Our final objective is to bring our target inside the GM line of vehicles. In order to drive purchase intent, we have to show our target what they desire. We must show them the different aspects of the GM models that they have been missing. GM College Discount Program will offer customers a test drive while they are sitting at their desks. This is when our brand physically and virtually meets our target exactly where they are. We will execute objective through social media and our College Game of the Week events.

IN CONCLUSION Primary Focus
When deciding where to start with this campaign, we decided to have a focus group within our firm to find what we, as college students value the most. We concluded that focusing on building meaningful, customer relationships adds more value to your product or service than any other marketing strategy out there. Many customers with buying power are hesitant to buy or invest because many times you do not know if the brand or service is sincere until you have tested the product. Our Make Your move Campaign is designed to build value to your brand and service before they even step on your lot. At Deakyne Baker Advertising, we are certain that this program will be successfull if the GM College Discount Program positions itself as a service that is after the consumers wants and needs, rather than their commission or company agenda. When a potential customer with buying power already has established positive attitudes toward the brand, they will be much more likely to buy.
why we did what we did Now that we established that building customer relationships has to drive our creative strategies, we had to combat the problem. We are certain that if we meet these students and recent graduates exactly where they are, they will be gain awareness about the brand. We decided there is no better time to buy than the Fall/Holiday Season and no better way to advertise to college students than to meet them on their traditional Saturday Gameday Events. By traveling to big college football games across the country for 10 weeks, we get the unique opportunity to start these relationships face-to-sface by serving tailgators and fans with sweepstakes, free giveaways, and the huge savings the GM College Discount Program has to offer. This campaign offers GM and the GM College Discount Program what they have been searching for, the opportunity to restablish a niche in the market to millennials. We must meet them where they are and show them we care. We believe our campaign will solve your identity and awareness problem to separating itself as the brand â€œYou can Trustâ€? Think about it. We are never concerned with giving money to people or companies in whom we trust.
