Launch of a new mail-order catalogue, 1994. Based on survey by Manchester Metropolitan University, which confirmed that the 1950 British Standard for clothes sizes was out of date.
Launch of a new mail-order catalogue, 1994. Based on survey by Manchester Metropolitan University, which confirmed that the 1950 British Standard for clothes sizes was out of date. Objective: to recruit new customers who were having problems over `fit', and being deterred from mail-order for that reason: the new proposition was to offer 'better fitting fashion', supported by the survey findings. Qualitative research used to refine the approach. Media selection (press) based on TGI lifestyle groupings: 2-phase launch in Spring 1994 tested alternative executions. Campaign rolled out Autumn 1994: 4-week test on radio, which failed but gave valuable information; press continued to perform well. Spring 1995, press campaign continued to build customers and sales; customer re-orderings from first 2 seasons' recruitment measured at 73-78%. Autumn 1995, decision to extend to TV: pilot tested in summer (UK Living, UK Gold); following successful results of pilot, tested on terrestrial TV (Granada), confirmed no significant difference; later, additional expenditure allocated to 4 satellite and 2 terrestrial TV channels. Spring 1996, the company's biggest ever campaign in January-February on national TV. Results of all these stages (sales growth, recruitment) shown in appendices, entirely due to the advertising without which there could have been no product.
