While Thank you started off by selling bottled water with one main goal to donate its profits to fund charity projects in disadvantaged countries(Christopher & Mcdonald 1995). It’s a fairly simple idea selling water to provide water for those who don’t have access to it. Since launching Thank-you Water the company has branched out into many different area food, body care and baby care. So what has made Nestle and Thankyou so successful. Let’s look at it from a marketing perspective, with a focus on segmentation, targeting and positioning (Kimmorley, 2015).

Thankyou have produced products in an ethical manner and share their profits with the goal of ending poverty and when there is so much bad going on in the world it is nice to know that there is somewhere out there doing some good!
Nestle segmentation is grounded on consumer variables which are equally important and useful, Nestle ensue targeting is like a choice they have their customers by segmentation so they target them to accomplish (Dutton, 1978). Nestle has scrutinized the market place, their competitors and strengths as well as they have certain idea where they are virtuous at, consequently Nestle has try to attend to the segments needs and, thus hope to make customs loyal and happy as they will be profitable for their corporation. Thankyou can thank their huge success to an ingenious Facebook campaign that got them where they are today(Kimmorley, 2015).

It is clear to see by using these types of marketing campaigns thank-you are targeting teenagers and young adults with a charitable and ethical conscious.
