AVEDA-The Balance of Body, Mind and Spirit

Today I am going to introduce Aveda to you, a selective beauty brand that is a great example for a Lovemark:

Aveda’s products are based on the traditional Indian Ayurveda medicine, that treats not only the outside of your body but also appeals to all of your senses and your soul.

Natural ingredients of an outstanding quality provide a unique hair care/style, skin, cosmetic and lifestyle products. And the promise of treating the environment sustainably by using 100% windpower and recycled packaging make it also a green brand.

The exotic components and scents create mystery and an exciting product experience just like a Lovemark would do.

With Aveda you can not only care for yourself but also for the world we live in!

Berlin, A Lovemark that has been looking for freedom!

My trip to Berlin inspired me and let me realise that Berlin is the one big German Lovemark!

Every German is proud of our capital and it is a place full of promises and aspirations-Berlin is magical in a down-to-earth way not only for Germans, but for Cosmopolitans from all over the world!

Desigual-It’s not the same

logo-color-jpg-desigual-logo

“Daring to be different”
The Spanish retailer Desigual makes no apologies for being unique

Today I am writing about a brand I personally don’t like: The Spanish apparel brand Desigual from Barcelona.

But Desigual is definitely different and also a brand that polarises.

It stands for uniqueness, this is why people are willing to pay more! Most Desigual fashion is casual such as Jeans, t-shirts, shorts, underwear and accessories but the attention attracting bright design and colour is recognized at the first glance all over Europe.

On of the brands strategies reveals that basics do not exist.

Desigual creates around 1500 new designs every year that are represented in dark stores with loud music and colourful equipment.

The innovative campaigns  like their offering of huge discounts to customer, who show up in the stores in their underwear are legendary.
 
In my opinion, the Desigual is overpriced not only in the monetary sense but also in the sense of the price you pay in terms of being out of fashion. I love fashion and I am not following every trend because I think fashion should highlight someone’s beauty. Desigual with its cartoon prints and its unfavourable designs does definitely not support the natural beauty. Unfortunately, I never saw somebody looking favourable in Desigual.
 
I am sure all of you know Desigual, what do you think? Is it a potential lovemark or just for people that try too hard to be different?

Nike Taught Me To ‘Just Do It’

This is how Nike makes is customers feel! The honestly love the brand! Nike convinces with its outstanding quality and its communication about the game that you are about to do!

Nike stands for Basketball, Soccer, Running, Athletics, Golf…Nike is capturing more and more sports market share and they can do it because it is a real Lovemark. Supported by famous sportsmen Nike is even more irresistible.

But what makes Nike different from its strongest competitor Adidas?

For me its the feeling Nike gives you: Nike manages it to merge sports and fashion, that is very important mostly for its female customer. But Nike goes further: With the customisation option NikeID, the Nike+ iPod feature and the dedication of the company to design products that are useful from the point of view of the customer, it creates an unbeatable competitive advantage towards Adidas.

Ray-Ban- I cannot live without it!

Ohne meine Ray-Ban, kann ich nicht mehr leben!

Ray-Ban-Laugh

This is German and says “I cannot live without my Ray-Ban” and it rimes:)

I just love my Ray-Bans, so far I got two of them but I want more!!

To be honest, I was not only that convinced! When I was a teen I used to wear super cheap fake eye-wear or H&M models. They were ok and I did not have to worry if I broke them, but then came the day when I tried a pair of “real” shades, those that cost you more but that have a solid frame and good quality glasses that improve your sight and protect your eyes. From this moment on, I could never go back! It is just irresponsible to expose your eyes to sunlight without UV-protection. The extra money you invest for real shades that hold for a life-time, is worth it!

Ok, there are a lot of sunglass- designers and brands, but only Ray-Ban is THE eye-wear brand! It is a Lovemark!

Ray-Ban is iconic, and their secret is excellent quality paired with timeless design and a touch of coolness. The design is so genuine that it is almost impossible to find somebody that cannot wear Ray-Ban’s.

That’s what Ray-Ban’s customers value. For generations. There is nothing cooler than getting an old wayfarer or iconic pilot shades from someone’s father or grandfather. The quality will be is still fine, even after decades!

It is a feeling to wear Ray-Bans, a feeling that the brand created perfectly within its creative communication and advertising campaigns. Last but not least, the fantastic and easy memorable slogan “Never Hide” stands for itself.

The Beatles- All you need is Love

the_beatles_logoThe-Beatles-1024x661

The Beatles are a phenomena! Their music never gets out of fashion and endless covers are played every day in radios, music channels, concerts and playlists. They are legends, icons and a Lovemark!

But what makes the Beatles so loveable?

They were four nice guys from next door with charisma and most importantly, that played simply awesome music. If you ever tried to play a Beatles song by your own, you will notice that most of them are four-chord songs and not too hard to play. But the simplicity and catchiness of their songs, is what makes the Beatles geniuses!

Considering the Beatles a Lovemark and analysing their secret recipe made me notice one important factor that differentiate Lovemarks from brands: They go with the time and reinvent themselves constantly new!

The Beatles definitely did this and are still doing it! Not only the music developed but also the outfits, the messages and the personalities of the group members. Its an organic process to grow with your challenges and to adapt to the changing environment you are living in. A Lovemark should never miss to do so. It is important to remember the roots but it is essential to go with time and recognise that you cannot stop the world from changing.

So I can conclude that one of the Lovemark secrets lies in the ability to adapt and to reinvent oneself but at the same time remaining loyal to one’s roots, values and principles.
