New Strategy, Sales Target for Shiseido

Prestige, fragrances will drive sales momentum



Japanese skincare brand Shiseido (Tokyo) has unveiled its 3-year plan – the second phase of its long-term strategy – after a successful sales year.

The first phase of its strategy, called “Vision 2020,” ended at the end of last year, running from 2015 to 2017, with the brand coming out better than expected. It reached its 2020 sales goal of $9.45 billion, and it plans to accelerate that growth, reports Women’s Wear Daily.

In the next phase, it intends to fine-tune its brand strategy, focusing first on its prestige brands: Shiseido, Clé de Peau Beauté, Nars, BareMinerals, Laura Mercier, Dolce & Gabbana and Ipsa. The company’s ceo, Masahiko Uotani, expects the high-end brands to make up 71 percent of its total business, a 10-percent growth. Of the prestige offerings, he predicts fragrances will account for 10 percent.

Strategy needs creative, and creative needs strategy—yep, having both is really the only way of unifying all disciplines with a common vernacular with an eye toward building a strong creative vision that is foundational to the processes. Hear from Bevan Bloemendaal, former VP, Global Environments & Creative Services at Timberland, how to connect the dots between disciplines, claiming and creating a clear differentiation for the brand and ensuring that any asset (experience, product, ad, store, office, home, video, game) is created with intention.
