Business problem

Dove wants to get its current users to satisfy more of their personal care needs with Dove products (whether bar; bodywash; deodorants or hair care products). Dove also has a social mission to help build stronger self-esteem in girls: The Dove Self-Esteem Project. Dove believes it can sell more products by increasing consumers' affinity with the brand via the the tangible programs of the Dove Self-Esteem Project.
