To me….marketing is about values. This is a very complicated world. It’s a very noisy world. And we’re not going to get a chance to get people to remember much about us. No company is! And so, we have to be really clear on what we want them to know about us.
Now Apple, fortunately, is one of half-a-dozen best brands in the whole world. Right up there with Nike, Disney, Coke, Sony — it is one of the greats of the greats. Not just in this country, but all around the globe.
But even a great brand needs investment and caring if it’s going to retain its relevance and vitality. And the Apple brand has clearly suffered from neglect in this area in the last few years. And we need to bring it back!
The way to do that is NOT to talk about speeds and fees. It’s NOT to talk about bits and mega-hertz. It’s NOT to talk about why we are better than Windows.
The dairy industry tried for 20 years to convince you that milk was good for you. It’s a lie, but they tried anyway. And the sales were falling. And then they tried “Got milk” and the sales went up. “Got milk” wasn’t even talking about the product. In fact, it focuses on the absence of the product.
But the best example of all, and one of the greatest jobs of marketing that the universe has ever seen, is Nike. Remember, Nike sells a commodity. They sell shoes!!!
And yet, when you think of Nike you feel something different than a shoe company. In their ads, as you know, they don’t ever talk about the product. They don’t ever tell you about their air soles and why they are better than Reebok’s air soles.
What does Nike do in their advertising? They honor great athletes. And they honor great athletics. That’s who they are, that’s what they are about!
Apple spends a fortune on advertising — you’d never know it….you’d never know it!
So…when I got here, Apple just fired their agency and there was a competition with 23 agencies that…you know…four years from now we would pick one. And we blew that up and we hired ChiatDay, the ad agency that I was fortunate enough to work with years ago and created some award winning work including the commercial voted the best ad ever made, 1984 (by Advertising Professionals).
And…we started working about eight weeks ago, and the question we asked was, “Our customers want to know who is Apple and what is it that we stand for…where do we fit in this world?”
And what we’re about isn’t making boxes for people to get their jobs done — although we do that well. We do that better than almost anybody, in some cases.
But Apple is about something more than that! Apple at the core…its core value — is that, we believe that people with passion can change the world for the better. That’s what we believe!
And we have had the opportunity to work with people like that. We’ve had the opportunity to work with people like you; with software developers, with customers, who have done it. In some big, and some small ways.
And we believe that, in this world, people can change it for the better. And that those people who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world are the ones that actually do!
And so, what we’re going to do in our first brand marketing campaign in several years, is to get back to that core value!
A lot of things have changed. The market is in a total different place than where it was a decade ago. And Apple is totally different — and Apple’s place in it is totally different. And believe me, the products, and the distribution strategy, and the manufacturing are totally different…and we understand that.
But values and core values — those things shouldn’t change. The things that Apple believed in at its core, are the same things Apple really stands for today.

BRANDS WILL PUSH TO ENGAGE MANY TIMES VIA MOBILE (RATHER THAN SELL JUST ONCE).
ATLANTA, May 28, 2010 — Since January 12, 2010, hidden camera footage of smiling students getting more than they bargained for from a Coke vending machine has been viewed by more than 2.2 million people on YouTube. Last night, the Coca-Cola “Happiness Machine” was awarded CLIO‟s prestigious Gold Interactive Award at the 51st annual awards dinner held in New York City. A CLIO award is one of the world‟s most recognized industry accolades for advertising, design and communications.
The “Happiness Machine” video, the result of a collaboration between Coca-Cola and integrated interactive marketing agency Definition 6, features a Coca-Cola vending machine transformed to deliver surprising “doses” of happiness to unsuspecting college students. Shot on location at the Queens, NY, campus of St. John’s University, the outwardly typical Coke machine, was placed in the center of the student cafeteria, in full view of five strategically placed hidden cameras. What ensued was totally unscripted.
Over 2 days of filming, the hidden cameras captured the spontaneous reactions of the students as the machine dispensed an array of goodies including, flowers, pizzas, sunglasses, a twelve-foot „hero‟ sub and a seemingly never ending supply of Coca-Cola.
“Happiness is contagious. When you see people smiling, you want to smile.” said Wendy Clark, SVP, Integrated Marketing Communications and Capabilities, The Coca-Cola Company. “This human truth is at the heart the idea. In the video, you see genuine surprise and delight on the students‟ faces when they interact with the Coca-Cola “Happiness Machine” and witness the generosity that ensues as they come together to share in the moments of happiness. It is such a simple yet compelling concept and one that so accurately portrays Coca-Cola for what it ultimately is; one of life‟s simple pleasures.”
Earlier this week, the “Happiness Machine” video reached its biggest audience yet as a 30-second edit of the footage debuted during American Idol‟s season finale.
“Coke’s goal to inspire consumers through small, surprise moments of happiness served as the ideal creative motivation to us,” said Paul Iannacchino Jr., Creative Director, Definition 6. “Our strategy was to deliver doses of happiness in an unexpected, innovative way to engage not only the students, but the audience at large. Whether you were present during the shoot or experiencing the event online, our goal was the same – to put a smile on your face and share that emotional connection.”
The “Happiness Machine” video is part of Coca-Cola‟s global integrated marketing campaign, “Open Happiness,” which invites people around the world to bring positivity, optimism and fun into their lives. Launched in 2009, at the core of the campaign is the message to consumers to open a Coke and share a little happiness.
