According to LaNeve the product strategy of how to best use Woods is to sell cars based on their own attributes, not on their ties to a particular celebrity. They plan to use Woods in corporate level marketing and in particular, with its OnStar marketing campaign.
In 1999 Woods signed a sponsorship agreement with Buick and in 2004 he agreed to a new deal believed to be worth more than $40 million dollars over five years.
"We don't want a celebrity at the core of any brand. We want the message on Buick to be about Buick,” said LaNeve.
Do you feel that Tiger Woods will be a marketing crossover success or failure? Remember, this is the guy that usually lands every ball.
