The Hunt for the First Ever Mrs. Meyer's Home 'Maker'

How can a small, but inspired, natural home cleaning brand reignite growth in a category created and defined by the better-funded incumbents? By reframing the category and challenging marketing norms, it reached a new consumer showing that cleaning isnt the end of something dirty but the start of something inspirational. A contest brought the insight to life prompting consumers to share their personal stories of making. Communications resulted in +26.6% sales growth, 2.7x the category rate and millions embracing the brand to celebrate the pride and joy of home making.

Kleenex. Someone Needs One.

Being the leader of a declining category can only mean one thing: Its time to change the game. To save itself, Kleenex needed to transcend nose-wiping and stand for something that mattered to people. By repositioning itself as a gesture of care, Kleenex put itself at the center of a program that stood for empathy in a world of indifference. Since launch, Kleenex has increased sales by 4.5X (+2.7%) vs. expectations while delivering nearly 12MM social engagements in the first 11 weeks of programming44X total social engagements in 2014.
