Old Spice- The Man Your Man Could Smell Like

This campaign was launched in 2009 to increase overall sales, increase their brand awareness, and also to boost them to become the leader in their industry. The company knew that men used their spouse/girlfriend's body wash so they wanted to reach out to these people and get their sales.

Target the Customers

These commercials accomplished reaching the target market because although they were directed at women, and speaking to them, the ads were funny and appealed to men.

Dominating Social Media

These commercials while popular on television, reached many people through the internet. All of the ads were posted on Old Spice's youtube account and still receive many views everyday. The biggest twist the company did with social media was its twitter response video campaign. Fans would ask questions to the Old Spice twitter account and "the man your man could smell like" would respond. These response videos would get many views and overall people would be thinking about the brand and the awareness increased.
