OVERVIEW
Mary Kay has been supporting women and enriching
their individual strengths since 1963. Their business
model gives women freedom that allows them to
spend more time creating and pursuing their dreams.
The company promotes strong relationships between
women. Their Independent Beauty Consultants (IBCs)
exemplify this through their relationships with their
clients. Our target is looking for these qualities when
shopping.
OBJECTIVE
Mary Kay believes in the power of every woman
and wants to ensure that she sees that power within
herself. They provide the motivation to establish new
relationships that beneft the Independent Beauty
Consultants lives and ultimately their customers lives.
We found the key to increasing sales and gaining IBCs is
by creating a positive perception. Our goal is to create
that perception by building meaningful relationships
with the target. This is a timeless concept.
A straight path never leads anywhere
except to the objective.

Natalie, 25, Jackson, MS
Ive used probably all of their face products & continued buying because of the quality. Its a little
expensive, but its worth it.

Friend recommendations are the only way I fnd out about new brands.

Morgan, 26, Albuquerque, NM
Millennials perception of Mary Kay is outdated due to a
lack of knowledge about the brand and the benets ofered
to their IBCs and consumers.
Millennials prefer advice from their peers as opposed
to mainstream advertisements. Although Mary Kay is
perceived as a corporation, they ofer genuine relationships.
The target prefers going to a department store rather than
waiting for their product to be delivered through a direct
sales representative.
Millennials are more open to change and embrace
multiple modes of self expression. Mary Kays business
model is cohesive with this mindset.

Our target demographic is women ages 18-25. These women are in diferent stages of their lives and are driven
by diferent motivations. They seek out relationships that align themselves with these motivations. While their
motivations can shift several times throughout their lives, the one constant is their faith in whatever motivates
them. It is this dynamic that creates the Mary Kay woman - a woman anchored by faith, family, and career.

CONCEPT
Mary Kay betters the lives of women everywhere by
giving them a genuine relationship; a trait unique to
the Mary Kay brand. Having authentic interactions
builds a foundation that can be strengthened. We are
showing the target that Mary Kay is more than makeup
and sales. They are a company ofering enriching
relationships.
SWEET SPOT
Mary Kay strives to provide opportunities for women
with the intent of advancing their life goals. These
opportunities allow for enriching relationships between
the IBCs and clients. Our target desires a relationship
along with their purchase. The combination of support
and relationships creates an enriching experience. Mary
Kay can align with this demographic by emphasizing
the enriching relationships they ofer.
STRATEGY
The most efective way to communicate enriching
relationships to the target market is by using their
own words. The frst step of out campaign gains new
clients and expands Mary Kays market footprint. We
then transition into step 2 which takes the engaged
members into becoming IBCs by building their faith in
the company. The fnal step of this campaign allows the
faithful IBCs to infuence potiential clients and IBCs. The
user driven focus will allow our campaign to last longer
then the given 12 month period.
POSITION STATEMENT
We will position Mary Kay as the only cosmetic company
that enriches your life through personal relationships.
TAGLINE
We encompass our concept in two powerful words. When
relationships between two things are greater together
than separated, they share a unique and beautiful bond.
We have labeled this relationship beautiful together.
10
We must have a theme, a goal, a purpose in our lives. If you dont know
where youre aiming, you dont have a goal. My goal is to live my life in
such a way that when I die, someone can say, she cared.

CHECKOUT OPTIMIZATION
As an update to the Mary Kay mobile and website checkout
systems, the customer can choose an IBC based on recommended
ratings. The top recommendations can be potentially used as a
training tool for reviews and customer service. When the IBC
delivers the product, they establish a new relationship with
the customer. The IBCs customers write reviews about their
experiences with them. The target prefers seeing rating and
reviews from others they can trust.
WEBSITE UPDATES
We will update the profle pages of IBCs on the Mary Kay
website to be more personal, engaging, and interactive. There
will be a personal video on each profle that introduces the
IBC and why they joined Mary Kay as well as a brief bio, their
location, contact information, and IBC rating. This content will
be uploaded to YouTube to generate back links and increase

PUBLIC RELATIONS
The Millennial generation is infuenced to buy particular
products by listening to other credible sources, such as
recommendations, reviews, and websites. Recent research
shows the best way to establish credibility and trust is through
third-party communications. The PR department will take every
advantage to increase the exposure of the Beautiful Together
campaign. Press releases will be held for our partnerships with
charity groups and collaborate with the Mary Kay Foundations
PR department.
MULTI-CULTURAL FORMAT
Our campaign consists of user created content that can originate
from any cultural background. This allows our campaign to
reach many culturally diverse markets.
INTERNSHIPS
We will hire interns to work at the Mary Kay Corporate
headquarters for the sole purpose of overseeing the social
media portion of our campaign. Prospective interns will be
knowledgeable in the workings of the various social media
platforms and how to monitor and modify these platforms as
needed. They would also embody Mary Kays core values and
goals.
The goal of these internships will be to monitor trafc and
users on the Mary Kay social media sites. In addition, they
will be responsible for making changes as necessary to update
information and videos as changes need to be made.
APPLAUSE MAGAZINE
We will include articles in the Applause Magazine for the
IBCs about promotions, events, and other important campaign
news. All of our promotions will be featured with instructions
on how each IBC can efectively utilize them. Special events,
such as the Mary Kay Expo, along with partnerships will
be highlighted in the magazine to give IBCs the additional

EVALUATION CONCLUSION
Mary Kay has an opportunity to build a lasting
relationship that will extend into the future. We will
give clients the confdence and desire to become an
IBC. We are not just selling make-up. We are selling
enriching relationships.
By completing our promotions, the target will have
the confdence to join the Mary Kay family. Mary
Kay will become a trusted brand among consumers,
leading to brand loyalty in a category where people
typically buy makeup only, with no emotional
attachment.
Our campaign breaks through the mainstream
advertising of the make-up industry and creates a
brand that resonates with the consumer on a personal
level. This authentic relationship proves that Mary
Kay understands the consumers core values. Thats
why Mary Kay and women are Beautiful Together.
Pretend that every single person you meet has a sign around
his or her neck that says, Make me feel important. Not onl y
will you succeed in sales, you will succeed in life.
-Mary Kay Ash
We will evaluate the efectiveness of the Beautiful
Together campaign by conducting pre-testing and
post-testing. This is a critical way to analyze the
campaign as a whole and determine its increase
in brand recognition among consumers. We will
execute focus groups and one-on-one interviews
periodically throughout the whole campaign. Using
the information from the focus groups and interviews,
we will monitor the increase of make-up purchases
and brand awareness within our demographic. The
participants of our promotions and the IBCs are
encouraged to share their thoughts and ideas within
our social media and online data providing us with
qualitative and quantitative data.
