Case: Inside Intel Inside
Big question: “is Intel planning to extend its ‘Intel Inside’ brand campaign to other product categories, such as cell phones, PDAs (Personal Digital Assistant), and so forth?”    “Intel Inside” campaign was more than 10 years old, and it succeeded in creating one of the most valuable brands in the world. Pamela Pollace’s, vice president and director of Intel’s worldwide marketing operations, primary responsibility  to protect, sustain and build brand equity Risks  by extending the brand they would be exploring uncharted territory. Also, if this happened, they would be diluting the brand in some way. The cost of it would be damaging the brand equity they’ve been working on so hard. Intel: business of microprocessors, (silicon chips) a central processing unit that controls processing of data in PCs, servers, workstations and many other electronic devices. They represent from 20% to 40% of a PC’s manufacturing cost. They had short product life cycles Appearance of Apple (without Intel chip)  Intel immediately set out to become the leading chip supplier in this market. 1980 Intel secured a contract with IBM Personal Computer, gaining 70% share of the market. Chip 386  first microprocessor that could operate multiple operating systems Slow adoption of this last chip. People wanted the previous version (286) They wanted to prove if the problem was that end users weren’t aware of the product differences  marketing experiment – market research: problems they found: 1. Computer buyers believed the 286 was capable of doing everything they needed to; so they didn’t had the need to upgrade it 2. Concerns that software used with their 286 wasn’t compatible with 386 Challenge: change perception  low-cost experiment using billboard advertising in a single market; at the beginning they had the 286 number crossed, and then they had the 386 number enclosed in a circle. They also said 386 was the same price as 286 but with more advantages (“Red X Campaign). Results: sales of 386 began to pick up; customers changed their buying plans as a result of the 6 week campaign. The problem even though this was successful, it wasn’t going to work with other products that had to be introduced every other year. Solution  to create an umbrella brand that could span (abarcar) successive generations of products. Answer  Looking for umbrella brand names – they chose “Intel. The Computer Inside.” Problems with Original equipment manufacturers (OEM). They ended up designing a co-op advertising program with the OEMs. In the program, Intel’s OEMs would be able to accrue co-op advertising dollars on the basis of their

Pollace says: “Intel did not dominated these non-PC markets the way tit did the PC market. “Animated jingle” – five-tone melody played at the end of every radio & tv co-op advertisement. Although. Going back to the initial question. it did maintain a respectable presence in these markets with its StrongArm processor. “Now. after marketing teams do market research on consumer needs. However. The core values of the brand remained the same. Pentium 4 chip was considering to offer outstanding performance for digital media applications. it was not clear that consumers would respond to any kind of “ingredient” branding campaign in these categories . they talk to the technical folks to see how to turn those consumer needs into product features. Get their logo on OEMs products 3. The logo said simply “Intel Inside.” There 3 goals: 1. the company’s brand image didn’t change. but it had retreated from these efforts when it had become apparent that the co. Intel had focused much of its Pentium 4 processor advertising on digital media. innovation and simplicity. 94: Introduced Intel Pentium processor under the “Intel Inside” umbrella. had experimented with putting the Intel brand on other devices in the past. Create more advertising in the industry 2. Ads were controversial because they were featuring the Blue Man Group. Get consumers to pay more attention to microprocessors 300 OEMs signed under this program.
