Aggressive ads up awareness

The personal massager category still is small at only $3.2 million for the 12 weeks ended Sept. 4, according to SymphonyIRI Group data across food, drug and mass (excluding Walmart), but the growth rate is trending at a 20.6% clip.


Church & Dwight has been the most aggressive in its advertising to date. A commercial aired during Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” touted the company’s Trojan Vibrations Twister as so good it will “blow your hair back.” At $59.99, that massager is only available through TrojanVibrations.com. But Trojan’s full retail line is prominent on that page as well.
