Nissan GT-R Marketing In Germany: Porsche Owners Beware

February 21  |  Brand Building  |   Ryan Clark

While it seems we’re going to get a lot of branding posts crossed with cars, mainly due to my bias and I’m the only one who writes for the blog so too bad! We do however get to see a lot of clever marketing within this industry, well clever everywhere but North America. With that being said, Nissan wanted to do something special to ignite the GT-R passion in the hearts of Porsche owners. This turned out to be something they managed to do quite easily and in a rather ingenious way might I add. I’ll let the video do the talking, but hopefully you learn a few guerrilla marketing lessons from the fine folks at Nissan.

Porsche Facebook 911 GT3 R Celebrates 1,000,000 Fans

February 17  |  Brand Building  |   Ryan Clark

To those that know me well know that Porsche is my ultimate pleasure. I tell people I’d rather have a 911 GT3 than children, and I still believe that. As a fan of the company, I’ve recently been quite impressed with how they’ve taken to social media. This is a company that needs no more branding, but that didn’t stop them from (finally) jumping on the social media bandwagon. The Porsche Facebook Page is also a testament to how you should utilize the sites features to interact with fans.

To celebrate 1,000,000 fans on their Facebook Page, Porsche built a 911 GT3 R Hybrid with all the names of the followers. Using your product in this fashion is not only a genius marketing move, it builds your relationship with your clients to an untapped level. My hat goes off to the marketing department at Porsche, and I hope they enjoy another million followers within the next year.
