Benson and Hedges, yes the Cigarette Company. is famous in Asia today. But to target this market, they do not come up with advertisement in all dailies and in 365 days. But they found a novel way to catch Asian consumers.

Sponsorships. Yes, they are today one of the best sponsors of sports like, football and cricket (two most exciting sports in Asia). Know how sponsorships and public relation activity can help in effective marketing communication.

Johnny Walker, the hard drink manufacturer, did not target local liquor shops as a part of their direct marketing campaign. But they targeted the elite class of consumers, either from service level or from business category, featuring themselves in sports like polo, snooker and targeting 5 start hotels. Event promotion in elite clubs and private parties is one of the best method to reach out toa niche customer for a hard drink manufacturer. The company had done that.

Coke, spending crores in advertising, but selectively target the youth of Asia. Selecting icon figures, from films to sports, holding events for MTV as well promoting pub culture and lounging bars, coke has done a clever marketing communication.

In all these, in common we see, being always visible does not mean getting more sales. But visibility is attached to awareness.
