Notes: Mission:

During the Chinese New Year, Taiwanese people have a tradition of ringing out the old to welcome new things around the house.

E-Life Home Appliance Mall, a local home appliance mall in Taiwan, wants to encourage customers to purchase new home appliance products to replace their old ones. A key opportunity lay in elderlies who had older home appliance products. But the elderly in Taiwan are known for their frugality. They will only consider purchasing new products if the old ones have been deemed unfixable. It would be impossible to persuade them to spend on themselves.

How do we tackle this marketing challenge?
