How Chrysler's Trying To Be More Like Nike And Starbucks [THE BRIEF]


Good morning, AdLand. Here’s what you need to know today:

Chrysler is taking its new branding tips not from a competing car company, but rather from Starbucks and Nike. The auto maker wants to make personalised products. “There’s a gazillion ways you can get your drink at Starbucks and that’s a powerful reward,” president and CEO Saad Chehab told Detroit News. “That’s a cachet-reward factor that Starbucks has, no different than Nike does it with the Nike ID. I see us as one of the first ones to look at those types of venues and lifestyles, and attend to those needs.”

Speaking of Starbucks, mobile is paying off big for the coffee maker. According to Mobile Commerce Daily, three million payment transactions are made on a mobile device a week in the U.S.
