New Marketing Campaign!

Just on ch.10 news, with the BA Falcon winning Wheels car of the year Ford Oz will tomorrow launch a marketing campain.
Got a good wrap on the telly, and had that wonderful exhaust note of the turbo.

Looks like the public will get more falcon than ever, and will realise like us thats it is the best car in the land!

Roll on ford!

Good one rodderz! Ford should flog the arse out of this. Making the entire nation aware of the whole range of cars and not just the XR's is going to be vital. I want ads of my personal favourite the XT, and then the futura, Fairmont and ghia. Keep the momentum going FMC!

A Narooma XT like the norm?

I agree...cars on the road will be good marketing in itself but marketing that really gets the non-car enthusiasts who are in the new car market aware of the new BA range.

Investing in V8 Supercars is like advertising. You win a race and people buy you car.

Agree 110% 8EHinD - But having said this it'll be bloody intresting to see what FMC Oz comes up with, and heres hoping that it flows through to NZ! - The BA ad's are on every channel all the time! - backed up by many BA's on the roads of Auckland ofcourse! - Good times boys..

agree that ford have now got to milk this as much as possible.

tv ads are a great start. but not just during the V8's...they have to be during the news, during the evening movie, during the high rating shows. they need ads in magazines other than wheels and motor...we need ads in BRW, boating etc...ads in the major daily newspapers.

ford need cars on the road. hell...lend me one:s5 ... ford need to be everywhere. billboards, merchandise, tv, radio the lot. total and complete saturation.

ford have dealt holden a huge body blow by winning COTY, and by building a car that has kicked the crap out of each of its respective holden competitors, now go and knock holden out completely.

i will wear my ford t-shirt to work on friday...can i get paid now?:s5

You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.

YOu guys have to realise that advertising on everything is going to cripple to the point of bankruptcy. It cost a hell of a lot to advertise on TV, even early in the morning. They already have a lot of BA Ute ads on the radio...

It doesn't need to be overboard, just enough.
