Chosen article: KFC suspends its ‘finger lickin’ good’ slogan because of coronavirus.
Kentucky Fried Chicken has never strayed from weird, off-beat, and sometimes even absurd advertising campaigns and marketing initiatives. In 2018, British KFC locations ran into a supply and delivery issue that caused them to run out of chicken temporarily. They ran print ads with the bucket photoshopped to include the work “FCK,” followed up by a message of apology for the shortage (Huff, 1). In addition to print, they incorporated videos into social media channels that featured drive through video clips of angry customers yelling at workers. KFC has been one of the biggest contenders in the fast-food space (in addition to Taco Bell and Burger King) when it comes to outlandish marketing efforts. After COVID took the world by storm, we are living in a new environment. KFC took note of this and (after 64 years) is temporarily suspending the use of its tagline “Finger-Lickin Good”(CNN, 2). The decision was premiered on YouTube and accompanied by a statement from KFC’s GCMO: Catherine Tan-Gillespie. Although a marketing tactic it takes a direct and poignant approach to address today’s challenges.
Brands everywhere are figuring out (some for the first time) whether they should get involved in the happenings of the world: morally, politically, or otherwise. What is more, is that consumers are focused more than ever on whether a company (or CEO of said company) is fully morale in their own right, but additionally, what actionable steps that brand is taking to make good on the stance (Asare, 3). As public perception changes, so must inclusion policies, leadership cultures, and marketing to communicate it back to the public. Although KFC is known for being a little cheeky, is it good enough in 2020 to push a marketing campaign for a quick chuckle without showing ”the receipts” of company wide-initiatives to support it? Where is the line that puts a brand’s alignment in jeopardy? For this specifically: What is KFC doing to keep its” workers safe in light of the pandemic they are marketing to?
Customers today have near-constant access to all of their favorite brands, making brand alignment not only harder to keep consistent, but ultimately serves as more places to get called out for it—directly by your customers. Selection is key when developing an Onmi-channel Strategy. By focusing a message consistent with values and mission, and targeting channels where your audience is, you can have slightly more control over the narrative. That is until the message no longer aligns with your brand.
Good Evening Dr. Crispin and Fellow Classmates:
When thinking about an article to write about for this week’s discussion question I looked at multiple business sources until I discovered the article that I felt I could relate to the most. I have found within this course the best way to answer the questions that are being presented to us is to not just think about our answer as marketers but as the customer as well. So, I chose an article about Walmart’s performance during this pandemic. This article caught my eye because I thought about when the pandemic began and how I me and my fiancé thought it would be okay to go to the store that Friday evening before the “quarantine” was officially to start and all I could do was laugh while in Walmart because there was nothing to get. We needed up having to divide and conquer, he was at one Walmart across town and I was at the other talking to each other reporting when each store had on didn’t have.
