Care for a healthier chip?
The key to getting your brand's positioning right starts with knowing what it is that motivates consumers to consider a purchase. Zero in on a flawed motivational factor and you'll see the brand not taking off.
Take Parle Monaco Smart Chips for instance. The idea its hawking is to get people to care about a chip that isn't fried, therefore healthier, and so not piling on the pounds. The question is do chip consumers care enough to switch to a healthier alternative? Parle's smart chip's targeting all (note the commercial), but chip eaters mostly are youngsters. Lays and Bingo in India take the 'fun' route keeping that in mind. Smart Chip intends to take another.
The other day, I thought I'd try Smart Chips. It was available at the store. When I checked the package date, it was a month old. I went back to Lays. I must say, that ain't good going for Parle. Wonder if there's a turnaround in sight?
