DOVE

 

Today Dove launches its successful Ad Makeover campaign here in the US – and in 18 other countries globally – taking on advertising that can negatively impact self-esteem.  The Dove® Ad Makeover passes the power of advertising to women, by empowering them to send positive messages to other women through a Facebook app .  This app has the potential to reach millions of females with positive messages and give women the unique chance to spread positive advertising across the U.S. 

How it works: The Dove Ad Makeover gives women the power to take on potentially negative ads with messages that help women feel beautiful. Dove is using auction-style bidding systems used to purchase ads to increase the number of positive messages women see.  Women can select from one of eight positive beauty messages to appear in available ad space on Facebook.  “Your birthday suit suits you” and “Everybody is beautiful”, are just some of the positive beauty messages women will receive. How to participate:Women can visit www.Facebook.com/Dove to access the Dove Ad Makeover app and send a positive ad.  They can also tweet @Dove using the hash tag #admakeover to show support for the campaign.
