Procter & Gamble Co.’s new commercial for its Always feminine protection brand, which encourages girls to not fear failure, has logged more than 2.8 million views since being posted to YouTube on Aug. 16. The latest in P&G’s series of #LikeAGirl commercials hopes to change that. “Always … is on a mission to stop this drop in confidence by changing how girls perceive setbacks and encouraging them to embrace failure as part of the learning and growth process,” P&G stated.
Procter & Gamble Co. hopes to change the world through advertising, says Marc Pritchard, chief brand officer for the consumer goods company. “What we really hope for is that our advertising can be a powerful voice for good and for growth,” Pritchard told me during an exclusive interview. The Cincinnati-based maker of consumer goods such as Tide detergent (PG) believes social consciousness can be good for business, explained Pritchard, who oversees more than $7 billion in advertising spending annually for Procter & Gamble.
Procter & Gamble (PG) hits a new 52-week high of $92.95. The company's new product lineup, aggressive marketing, productivity improvement and cost-saving initiatives remain long-term drivers.
