The target audiences are aware of Men’s Biore, the product brand through attractive endorsers on TV commercials. The mass media exposure has succeeded to build brand’s recognition and developed products value. However, it did not succeed in the area of leading the target audience to build a constant habit on products usage. Since the products are usually used during the morning time after waking up from the bed, the tactic is to use the simplest effective way to remind the target user. The strategy is to utilize the alarm function on the smartphone to wake up the target everyday with his virtual girlfriend. The brand’s mission is to build a new communication channel with target users on daily basis, and at same time remind them for constant use of Men’s Biore products which in turns will help them to become as attractive as the TV commercial’s endorsers to opposite gender.
