Walt Disney’s Secret Marketing Techniques

The Walt Disney Company for decades have been using secret marketing techniques that whether they work or not, they continue to use to this today in 2017. If they are doing it, there must be a marketing success element linked to it.

In this article we will give you the top six examples!

Number One:

The most infamous and well known one is “The Little Mermaid” Movie Poster. If you haven’t heard the artist who designed the poster, secretly hide something in the poster. First take a second to look to see if you can notice it before reading further…

If haven’t noticed it, don’t worry we reveal it in the image below.

Now take a look at this!

Now that it is clear what the hidden image is. It makes you wonder WHY would Disney a company that is targeted to appeal for children. Why would they put a phallic image in the middle of their movie poster? Perhaps they were trying to subliminally appeal to the real consumer. The adult. Kids that would watch The Little Mermaid aren’t paying for the movie tickets, the parents are.

Number Two:

One secret that not many know, Disney secretly adds in the world recognized mickey mouse head shape into almost all of their films. A prime example of this takes place in Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl. Take a look at the cloud formation that arises into the air bearing a striking resemblance too…

Number 3: 

Walt Disney Pixar Films use this tactic in almost everyone if not all of their films. They plant objects, characters etc into their other movies. First lets show you a truck in the Toy Story films.

Now when you watch the movie Wall-e their is a scene with a very familiar looking truck…

Number 4: 

Pixar appears to use the law of repetition. The Pizza Planet truck continues to appear in multiple Pixar films. Again in the movie Cars. Lets see if you can spot it…

Number 5:

In the Walt Disney Pixar Film Monsters Inc. There is a particular scene where boo is handing a toy to James P. Sullivan the “good monster”. Does it look familiar?

Well if you are a fan of Pixar it’s a no brainer. But if you were unconscious of it would have gone right over your head. Or maybe even enter into your sub conscious to where you may think, I need to buy a Finding Nemo Blue Ray, Video Game, Toy etc. Or to maybe even keep Finding Nemo relevant for future spin offs like…

Number 6:

The seemingly most used hidden object in the Pixar films is the Luxo Ball. The Luxo Ball dates back to one of the first short films Pixar produced which was at the beginning of their success.

This Luxo Ball appears in this scene and in many other the Pixar films. One example of this is the movie Up in 2009.

This one shouldn’t be too hard to spot, but if you need help its in the bottom right corner.

After reviewing all of Disney’s secret marketing techniques it begs the question WHY? Is their any value gained from this? Does it cause subliminal triggers to buy? Does it reinforce the brand? Many questions can be asked but only the people at Disney have the real answers.

The conclusion of all this is that the Walt Disney Company does practice this form of marketing and they have been doing this for over 75 years and to present. It makes you think, does it work?

What is Maslow’s hierarchy of needs?

Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs

 

How does this theory apply to bettering my advertising and increasing sales?

He believed that people are motivated by subconscious wants and needs. He explains if you figure out someone’s wants and needs you have a greater chance at gaining their attention which will lead to them BUYING your product or service.

Money

To approach advertising in philological way was GAME CHANGING to the industry. These approaches only snow balled from this point on as the industry became much larger and competitive. Maslow’s Hierarchy starts with the most basic survival needs like the need for water, food and shelter. To the needs for safety like security, steady employment and resources. As the chart goes up the needs become greater with the next two being love/belonging and esteem. This means to have people around who nurture you and make you feel loved. The very top need being self actualization which refers to reaching the absolute best an you can be.

Many people adopted this theory and have even put their own spin on it.

To understand the Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs is the up most importance if you want to do anything in Advertising, Marketing and Social Media.

How to create a slogan

A diamond is forever… now we know you have heard that before but do you know where this saying actually comes from? If not that’s fine because most really don’t. “A diamond is forever” is a saying that is a part of our culture, but before that it was actually De Beers slogan to sell diamonds. And boy did those shiny rocks sell…

diamond

Great slogans like “A diamond is forever” have been around throughout history. These slogans still work, but to compete with today’s digital age your slogan also must adapt…! Now if you’re wondering HOW @#%! IS THIS DONE!? …. Good.

Fun Size

Before you can even think about the content of what your slogan will be, the most important key is that it must be memorable. This means your slogan must be short. Anything longer than four words is too long! You have to see yourself as the person reading your own slogan. If they can’t read it in under half a second it’s TOO LONG! They will pass it by and be on to the next thing that grabs their eye.

“So what… I make my slogan shorter. Will that really make the difference in them remembering it?”

Catchy

If you really want an AMAZING slogan you need to maximize it in every way! So keeping it short is just one part of the puzzle. There’s a tune by a popular American Fast Food franchise, you know how it goes “ba da ba ba baaa i’m lovin it.” Did you just sing a little tune in your head? Great! Because that’s exactly what McDonalds wants you to do when read this. When words are catchy and have rhythm they are always more memorable, that’s just how our brains are wired.

mcdonalds

“Okay so I have it short, it’s catchy so what? Will this really seal the deal with creating an AMAZING slogan?”

Meaning

Meaning, Meaning, Meaning. Your slogan simply must mean something. It can be informative specific to your business like “a diamond is forever.” With a slogan like that, there is no guessing to what De Beers wants to sell you. Your slogan can also mean how you want the person to feel when they buy your product or service like McDonalds “I’m Lovin it.”

Now this is where amazing slogans end for traditional advertising… “But what about in today’s competitive market? How can you really make the most AMAZING slogan?”

 

SEO

What happens when someone wants to buy a product or service, they turn to good old Google. People often search with specific keywords to find their wants and needs. If you take advantage of the HOTTEST keywords in your industry, your slogan will be more likely to pop up organically in the search engines. What does this mean? More sales…

Put A LOT of thought into your slogan. It WILL help you bring in more money to your business. Hey, maybe you will also change our culture like De Beers did
