Heard about BMW’s "Marketing Ambush?"
In Santa Monica, California, Audi posted a billboard advertising their new car as a direct competitor to BMW’s. The billboard sported the smug headline: "Your Move BMW."
How did BMW respond?
They purchased the billboard right next to Audi's billboard, added a billboard extension and, countered with the one-word headline: "Checkmate."
This marketing ambush is a brilliant move on BMW’s part. The ad is a beautiful combination of expert media placement and inspired copy writing.
This is the perfect example of the Slander-Campaign Strategy. It's also a great argument against the slander campaign strategy.
