15 Worst Marketing Blunders of All-Time
Every company has a marketing budget that they use to pay the best and brightest in ad campaign creation, to create terrific new branding initiatives, slogans, and commercials. The goal: motivate you, John Q. Buyer, to part with your hard-earned dollars. While it often works out, sometimes these companies fall flat on their faces. Some setbacks are easy to recover from, while others can lead to the downfall of an entire brand.
Following are 15 of the Worst Marketing Blunders of All-Time. While none of these campaigns accomplished their missions, they did leave a lasting impression that’s hard to forget years after they were unleashed on the public.
1. New Coke
New Coke tampered with a century old formula that, despite falling market shares, still resonated soundly with the public. What made New Coke such a bad marketing idea is that it essentially celebrated 100 years of a popular product by throwing out the formula people had grown to love and replacing it with something unproven. Its creation was an inadvertent admission that its primary competitor Pepsi had won the “cola wars,” something the Choice of a New Generation quickly took advantage of when doing battle with the soda pop originator. Coca-Cola executives soon learned from the mistake however, and brought back the old formula.
2. Ford Edsel
The Ford Edsel cost Ford Motor Company a $400 million investment before crashing and burning inside of three years. One of the biggest problems with the Edsel was that it was competing against itself, matching retail value on many of the cars in Ford’s established Mercury line without bringing anything new to the table. Another problem was the economic recession of 1957. And still another was the fact that it was a jumble of both Ford and Mercury parts with zero quality control since there was no separate Edsel manufacturing facility. This lead to a number of mechanical issues that killed demand!
3. Honda Asimo
Honda Asimo might not actually be that bad of an idea if Honda could ever get the kinks worked out. The approximately 4-foot tall, 119-pound astronaut child is capable of a wide range of movements, all but endangering the butler profession if not for one tiny little setback: the thing is very clumsy. Youtube and a variety of other video streaming websites proudly display the very public screw-ups of the Asimo in all their glory. A better use of Honda’s marketing efforts would be to take Asimo on the road as part of a new robotic slapstick comedy tour.
