Executive Summary 50 years speak for themselves. Since its foundation, Mary Kay has broken the boundaries between buyer and seller, and has enriched women’s lives with caring and personalized service. Today, Mary Kay takes on the challenge of connecting with a new generation of females that we call NOW Millennials – Generation Y females that are Networked, Open-minded, and Worldly. Through six months of market research on various platforms, including focus groups, on-site interviews, and online surveys, we identify that the primary disconnect between these NOW Millennials and Mary Kay is the perception that Mary Kay is not a brand that caters to the millennial generation. After thorough assessment of this problem, our team has conceptualized a solution that will captivate the NOW Millennial, a girl that we’ve identified as a cultural aficionado, a creative innovator, an experience seeker and most of all, a girl who lives in the moment and for the moment.
Based on these observations, our team has crafted the Moments campaign - a movement that realizes and embraces how each NOW Millennial defines her moment. In this targeted campaign, traditional advertisements, PR events, and social media will be utilized to shape the persona of the “Mary Kay girl” and help the NOW Millennial imagine, create, document, and share their own “Mary Kay Moments.” In order to be a part of every moment that NOW Millennials interact with in this ever-changing world, we will leverage several creative channels in our campaign, from print advertisements, to music and video streaming, to mobile applications.
Research Objectives Understanding the detachment between Millennials and Mary Kay, the goal of our research was to find the source of this disconnect and determine how to establish a connection. We constructed our research strategies and questions around two categories – the Mary Kay Company and the Millennial consumers – in order to identify similar values shared between the two.
Key Questions Mary Kay Research Objectives • How do millennials perceive Mary Kay as a brand? • Are millennials aware of Mary Kay’s affordability, accessibility, and product variety? • What is the impression of Independent Beauty Consultants among millennials? • Where does Mary Kay stand in the beauty product market and how does it compare to other

The Big Idea:
Extraordinary moments don’t just happen. They are made. Our creative campaign emphasizes this very point, by drawing inspiration not from the products themselves, but rather, from the girl wearing them. Celebrating those who revel in and share even the smallest occasion, our ad campaign encourages every Millennial to “Make Up Your Moment” with Mary Kay.
This message has the unique opportunity to tap into a vibrant market of young females who are in the process of creating their own story, moment by moment. Our campaign acknowledges and celebrates this generation that is living life in the now by being a part of these moments with them. As Mary Kay is not a traditional cosmetics company, it is our intention to defy the norms of conventional makeup advertising. Mirroring the person-to-person connection that IBCs have with their customers, our campaign has been designed as a dialogue. As intimate as a recommendation made by a friend, we hope to connect to our audience on a deeper level and establish a relationship beyond the page. Strategically utilizing both traditional and non-traditional platforms to connect to NOW millennials, our advertising is focused on following the spontaneous, confident, and innovative life of the “Mary Kay girl”. Specifically through strong social media efforts, we will further develop this persona to become an identity NOW Millennials can connect to. The “Moments” campaign will increase online sales and perpetuate positive brand awareness by positioning Mary Kay as a leading beauty brand that is both knowledgeable and personable.
Print The print ads for our creative campaign capture the essence of making the most of everyday moments. They demonstrate the concept of an ordinary day that opens itself to extraordinary interactions by the will of a Mary Kay girl who makes the most of every chance. These moments represent the delicate depth a small, yet significant interaction can bring into a Mary Kay girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life, even if just for a day.
Commercial Embodying the crux of our campaign, our commercial will communicate how Mary Kay can assist Millennials in making up their moments, by following a Mary Kay girl throughout her day. Starting with the application of her makeup, the audience will see how the confidence and inner and outward beauty of this Mary Kay girl allow her to make up the little moments of her daily routine. Unlike typical beauty commercials, where the focus is on the application and details of the makeup, our focus is on the girl who wears the makeup. Because of this, our commercial will be shot directly behind our Mary Kay girl to highlight, not her face, but the reactions of the people she interacts with. The audience will see her beauty and confidence through the moments she encounters throughout the day. We will tease the audience with fleeting glimpses of her face, but will not reveal her face and her makeup until the very end. Through this commercial we will define a Mary Kay girl beyond just her outward beauty, and will encourage Millennials to enhance their inner beauty, their outward confidence, and their everyday moments with Mary Kay makeup.
The IBC personal pages will be overhauled with a stylish upgrade to offer cohesion with other marketing efforts such as the Mobile App and YouTube channel. These efforts are then combined with a revamp of the current blog. Mary Kay blog will now create original editorial posts to discuss latest fashions and styles while venturing away from product pushing. Blogging, with new techniques of content marketing in mind, will have a substantive effect on the accessibility of Mary Kay by becoming a resource to consumers beyond the products as they share blog posts across social media.
Bus Stop Ad Allowing the busy commuter to take a few moments to contemplate their current look and destination, this is targeted towards audience integration and interpellation. By granting an individual this brief glimpse of their day, this can allow them to determine a greater destination and more extraordinary look for later in the day with the help of Mary Kay.
Social Media Strategy The big idea behind this campaign is all about the smaller moments. Through a frequently updated social media campaign, we aim to stay focused and connected to our followers with simple, thought-provoking imagery and messaging. This contributes to the Mary Kay girl persona over a cross-platform social media campaign.
The page itself will be listed as a “suggested page” on Facebook and there will be a dissemination of Facebook advertising which will increase exposure to a variety of market segments. Consistently publishing “little moments,” much like those portrayed in our print ads as well as interacting with the greater community through sharing and liking related pages for followers.
Users will have the freedom to share their own story and create captions and hashtags for their specific moments which will then be uploaded onto the official Mary Kay Instagram page. Instagram’s high level of creativity and spontaneity and those values fit perfectly with our Mary Kay campaign. Not only will these efforts hype awareness online, but create a platform for word-of-mouth discussion in-person..
Our Twitter page will represent the voice of Mary Kay. Friendly, bold, and interesting tweets that personify Mary Kay's values will ask followers about pop culture, thoughts and daily insights. Fun questions and interactive posts will build a stronger brand connection and generate firsthand feedback.

Building upon the MyMK section of the official website, Klique enhances the utility of MyMK with a stylish, new interface that is relatable to millennial females. The application will redefine the current perception of IBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s from a salesperson to a trusted friend through a social media like interface that gives IBCs more opportunity to show their personality and taste. This mobile app is also anticipated to entice millennial women to become IBCs, as they will be provided with a fresh, innovative platform for meaningful connections with the NOW Generation. Having connected with these IBCs via Klique, millennials will be encouraged to succeed the ranks of their consultants and begin their own futures as a beauty specialist.

Mary Kay Student IBC Program In our focus group studies, college students revealed interest in becoming IBCs under the following conditions:
• Customized system designed for students • Lower initial order cost within the range $200-$300 • IBCs receive incentives such as free Mary Kay makeup
Using these findings, we have developed a Student IBC program customized for college students - individuals who aren’t just connected to, but are a part of the NOW millennials. We project that the popularity for Mary Kay garnered from the “Moments” campaign will increase interest among females 18-25 in becoming Student IBCs. Combining the marketing concept of brand ambassadors and Mary Kay IBCs, our program will provide an opportunity for students to engage with Mary Kay and learn valuable professional skills. Implemented in target colleges and universities selected based on the total population of female students and location in relation to our target DMAs, our Student IBC program will adapt to college student lifestyles. For instance, to address affordability, we will lower the required inventory purchase from $600 to $200.
How it works Our semester-long program will occur bi-annually on 20 selected campuses.* Two campus managers from each campus will be selected from student applicants to report to a representative from Mary Kay Corporate. These student managers must recruit at least 5 Student IBCs and execute at least 3 Mary Kay events on campus, including the Mary Kay Instagram Campaign, within one semester.
Perks On top of the existing benefits of IBCs, students will be given opportunities to win the following: • $20 gift card each month to individuals that reach the monthly target goal of $200 • Cross-campus Competition: $100 worth of Mary Kay makeup per team member for the campus with the highest sales at the end of the program
Scholarships Ten scholarships of $5,000 will be awarded to female undergraduates who can produce a 500 word essay, 30 second video, photograph, or physical art work that embraces the idea of “Moments.” The scholarships will be awarded based on originality, creativity of expression, and execution.

The application will offer a chance for Spotify users to submit a playlist for one of the three selected moments: Mary Kay at Play, Mary Kay On the Road, and Mary Kay Rewind.
YouTube IBC Makeup Tutorials To connect with the creative and connected NOW Millennials, Mary Kay needs to position itself as a source of inspiration. Mary Kay will spark inspiration through makeup tutorials on YouTube, the styles that people see in all advertisements, and the latest trends. Each video tutorial will star an IBC, who is carefully selected through the regional chapter. The renovated Mary Kay Youtube channel will give IBCs an opportunity to showcase their specific looks and areas of expertise. A well-organized and professional team produced and monitored by Mary Kay will ensure quality and cohesiveness. In this way, we will help our followers create special moments in their lives with Mary Kay at their side.
Mary Kay x Rent the Runway x Susan G. Komen In a partnership with Rent the Runway and Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Mary Kay will organize a fashion show to inspire NOW millennials to help the community of breast cancer survivors. While the main purpose of this event is fundraising and raising awareness for breast cancer, this fashion show will also showcase clothing from start-up boutiques in New York, with models using the core line of makeup from Mary Kay. This collaborative fundraiser will follow in Mary Kay’s tradition of giving back to local communities. An advertisement designed to promote this event will be posted on Mary Kay’s Facebook page. For every share from 10/1/15 - 10/16/15, $1 will be donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure for up to $20,000.
Mary Kay Bike Share @ Philadephia To capture the growing trend of bike sharing in metropolitan cities, Mary Kay will become the title sponsor of Philadelphia’s bike share program. Philadelphia currently does not have a bike share program, yet has the nation’s largest percentage of female commuters and is one of the nation’s safest bike cities. More importantly, many universities and colleges are located within Philadelphia, maximizing exposure to the target market.
Media Plan Objectives Among our target market, female consumers ages 18-25:
• Increase brand awareness to develop positive perception consistent with Mary Kay’s brand identity
• Promote sales of Mary Kay products
• Familiarize the target market with Mary Kay’s direct selling model
• Encourage potential customers to take advantage of the Mary Kay career opportunity
Media Strategies The execution of our Moments campaign will strategically coincide with seasonal changes and the college academic calendar to effectively reach the target market. The campaign will begin advertising the vibrant colors of the Mary Kay At Play line, which mirror hues of the spring and summer seasons, and will subsequently advertise the core line of products beginning in October, to complement the darker colors for autumn and winter. Campaign components that involve college students, such as the Student IBC and Mary Kay Instagram campaign, are scheduled according to the academic calendar.
ONLINE: $3,343,613 IMPROVEMENTS TO MARY KAY’S EXISTING PLATFORMS Rationale In order to utilize Mary Kay’s existing online platforms to their fullest potential, we will renovate them with engaging, millennial-directed material, and integrate the hashtag, #mkmoments, across all platforms to create a cohesive and uniform campaign.
148,281,250 Gross Impressions Demographically targeted pay-per-click page likes Rationale Mary Kay should increase non-product related posts on their Facebook page, such as health tips, pop culture references, or makeup inspiration. Content should also act as a call to action to get people to engage through likes, shares or comments. Posts that are polls (i.e. like if you think…), or ask questions about products are effective in stirring engagement. Mary Kay can also promote the IBC career by posting stories and photos of the rewarding work of current IBCs.

583,375 Gross Impressions Rationale Compared to top pinners in the beauty category, Mary Kay’s content looks too complex to feel visually pleasing. During the “Make Up Your Moment” campaign, Mary Kay will pin simpler and cleaner images in order to optimize the tablet user’s experience, as Pinterest drives almost 50% of all social networksharing on iPads. Furthermore, we will add a “Pin It” button to Mary Kay’s website to promote sharing images from Mary Kay’s “Looks” and “Tips and Trends.”
