Creating Cross-Generation Appeal

Some companies have experienced real success by winning both the parents and kids. The recent successes of the Imac launch and the VW Beetle relaunch demonstrate the power of appealing across generations.

The new Beetle’s launch advertising used overt link to the brand memories and attachments of a previous generation while it was attracting a new, younger clientele. The car is loved and driven by the boomers and generations X and the older Ys. The future strength of the brand was apparent in the wide-ranging success of the new Beetle.

A new generation will now grow up with the Beetle and it will form their opinions and preferences for the Volkswagen brand. VW states that overall Volkswagen sales lifted with the relaunch of the Beetle, an effect they believe comes from attributing the positive values of one car across their whole line. How many kids will now drive Beetles of Jettas or Passats when they are ready to own their own cars due to the nostalgia felt for the Bug?

Menciptakan Daya Tarik Antar Generasi

Beberapa perusahaan telah mengalami sukses sukses yang nyata dengan memenangkan baik orang tua maupun anak mereka. Sukses baru-baru ini dari peluncuran produk Imac dan peluncuran kembali produk VW Beetle menunjukkan kekuatan daya tarik antar generasi.

Iklan dari peluncuran produk Beetle yang baru menggunakan hubungan yang kentara dari ingatan akan merek dan keterikatan dari generasi sebelumnya, sambil menarik klien baru yang lebih muda. Mobil tersebut disukai dan dikendarai oleh ‘boomers’ dan generasi X dan Y (yang lebih tua). Kekuatan masa depan dari merek tersebut jelas terlihat dalam sukses yang meluas dari produk Beetle yang baru.

Generasi baru sekarang akan tumbuh besar dengan produk Beetle and akan membentuk pendapat mereka dan kesukaan mereka terhadap merk Volkswagen. VW menyatakan bahwa keseluruhan penjualan Volkswagen terangkat naik dengan peluncuran kembali dari produk Beetle, pengaruh yang mereka percayai datang dari attribute nilai positif berasal dari satu mobil terhadap seluruh lini produk. Berapa banyak anak, sekarang akan mengendarai produk Beetles atau Jettas atau Passats ketika mereka siap untuk memiliki kendaraan mereka sendiri karena nostalgia yang dirasakan untuk si Kumbang?

The Sweet Water of Liberty

Liturgically Speaking, you could hardly find a better time to become a monk than Advent. You begin a new life, you enter into a new world at the beginning of new liturgical year. And everything that the Church give you to sing, every prayer that you say in and with Christ in His Mystical Body is a a cry of ardent desire for grace, for help, for the coming of the Messiah, the Redeemer.

The soul of the monk is a Bethlehem where Christ comes to be born - in the sense that Chris is born where His likeness is re-formed by grace, and where His Divinity lives, in a special manner, with His Father and His Holy Spirit, by charity, in this “new incarnation,” this “other Christ”.
Translation - Indonesian
Misteri Keindahan dari Kebebasan

Berbicara sesuai masa liturgi, engkau hampir tidak bisa menemukan waktu yang lebih baik untuk menjadi seorang rahib daripada di masa Advent. Engkau memulai hidup baru, engkau memasuki dunia baru pada permulaan tahun liturgi. Semuanya yang diberikan oleh Gereja kepadamu, untuk bernyanyi, setiap doa yang engkau katakan di dalam dan bersama Kristus dalam Tubuh Mistik-Nya adalah seruan hasrat yang bergelora untuk kasih karunia, untuk pertolongan, untuk kedatangan Mesias, Sang Penebus.

Jiwa dari seorang rahib adalah Bethlehem dimana Kristus datang untuk dilahirkan – dalam pengertian bahwa bahwa Kristus lahir dimana keserupaan dengan-Nya diubah oleh kasih karunia, dan di mana Ke-Allahan-Nya hidup, dalam cara khusus, bersama Bapa dan Roh Kudus-Nya, oleh kemurahan hati, dalam “inkarnasi baru,” “Kristus lain” ini.
