The Big O: How Oprah Winfrey Built Her Brand

By: Katherine Matz and Ellen Leto


Through the use of media and an uncanny honesty, Oprah Winfrey has created a powerful brand for herself. Winfrey has been connecting with people around the world for the past two decades as supervising producer and host of the award-winning The Oprah Winfrey Show. Her accomplishments as a global media leader and philanthropist have established her as one of the most respected and admired public figures today (Oprah Winfrey’s Biography). Winfrey does not simply befriend her viewers, according to Jennifer Harris and Elwood Watson; she “transforms them into loyal consumers.”


Situation Analysis


Influenced by Barbara Walters on the Today Show, Winfrey began her media career in high school, when she worked at WVOL radio in Nashville. At the age of 19, she became the youngest person and the first African-American woman to anchor the news at Nashville's WTVF-TV (Oprah Winfrey’s Biography). At times, Winfrey struggled with the detached nature of news reporting and was criticized by her colleagues for being too emotional (Famous Entrepreneurs). Next, she moved to Baltimore to co-anchor the six o’clock newscast on WJZ-TV and was later appointed co-host of the station’s People Are Talking morning show. This program helped Oprah to find her niche. She said, “I felt comfortable. I felt like I could be myself. All of those years I was on the news, I was always acting” (Koehn and Helms). Unfortunately, her bosses at WJZ-TV wanted her to change everything about her appearance, which was traumatic for her.


In 1984, Winfrey’s charismatic broadcasting style attracted the attention of Chicago’s ABC affiliate station, WLS-TV, and she was invited to host its half-hour morning show that had been struggling to maintain viewership against The Phil Donahue Show, an extremely popular, nationally syndicated program. (Koehn and Helms). Dennis Swanson, vice president and general manager of the station was not concerned with her appearance—he let Oprah be Oprah. With Winfrey as the host, AM Chicago became the number one local talk show just one month after she began. Due to the positive and progressive results of having Winfrey, the show expanded to one hour and was renamed The Oprah Winfrey Show. In 1986 it became the highest-rated talk show in television history and entered national syndication (Oprah Winfrey’s Biography).


Her success, as a woman and a minority, is a testimony to her innovative hosting style. At the time, the roughly 30-year-old talk show industry was dominated by The Phil Donahue Show. Donahue established the “sympathetic model” of talk shows: rather than entertain, the host consoled and educated guests about previously private issues. However, Donahue did not possess the relatable nature that Winfrey exudes. Winfrey opened herself up to her viewers, and, in turn, her viewers followed suit (Harris and Watson). Though Winfrey was never expected to out-perform Donahue (she was hired only to marginally improve the ratings numbers for AM Chicago), her viewership exceeded Donahue’s by nearly 2-to-1 within two months of her arrival (Koehn and Helms).


Winfrey realized early that because of her swiftly mounting success she would need an agent to manage contracts and offers and hired Chicago entertainment lawyer Jeffrey Jacobs to represent her (Koehn and Helms). According to Patricia Sellers, while Dennis Swanson, WLS-TV, taught Winfrey to be herself, Jacobs convinced her that she could run an empire. An important part of this empire was the eventual ownership of her company.


Due to Federal Communications Commission regulations, WLS-TV, an affiliate of ABC, could not distribute the program to non-affiliates. So by July 1985, after The Oprah Winfrey Show received offers from several national syndicators, King World was finally chosen for distribution. Jacobs negotiated a deal in which King World was required to obtain distribution rights from both WLS and Winfrey. By the first day of syndicated distribution, an unprecedented 138 local stations had purchased rights to her show (Koehn and Helms).


That same year, Winfrey played the role of Sofia in the motion picture The Color Purple, sparking an interest in production. In May 1986, she established Harpo, Inc. The company was established to oversee publicity for her show, answer fan mail, and manage developing projects, including purchasing the rights to Toni Morrison’s novel, Beloved (Koehn and Helms). Jacobs was given a 5 percent share of the company. Three years later, when he was named president of Harpo, Inc., he was given 5 percent more (Sellers).


With the help of Jacobs, Winfrey negotiated effective deals with King World and ABC, and Harpo, Inc. was able to claim a substantial portion of the shows profits. WLS-TV gave up its ownership after a short time, and with each renewal of King World’s distribution agreement, its share decreased (Koehn and Helms). By late 1988, an estimated 11 million viewers in the United States watched The Oprah Winfrey Show each day, and licensing fees for local stations brought Harpo, Inc. around $100 million. Harpo’s current president, Tim Bennentt, says that this period “was a seminal moment when Oprah took control of herself. And by taking control, she opened up the door to getting the lion’s share of the profits for the show” (Koehn and Helms).


King World and Harpo, Inc. continued to negotiate distribution deals for The Oprah Winfrey Show for about a decade. With each contract, King World’s share of the program’s revenues decrease and Winfrey’s share of King World and licensing fees increased. In 2002, King World relinquished its remaining portion of the show and full ownership was given to Harpo, Inc. At this point, annual revenues from The Oprah Winfrey Show were nearly $300 million, and Winfrey’s net worth exceeded $1 billion (Koehn and Helms).


Research


Winfrey is a multimedia mogul who has produced film and television programs and launched the most successful magazine start-up in history. Everything flows from her talk show, which she has used as a platform for sharing her struggles. She also uses her show to build a deep, personal connection with her audience, most of whom feel her values and aspirations reflect theirs. Winfrey has built her brand around her desire to build, produce and promote worthwhile projects. Her book club has become a key marketing force in the publishing industry, and it promotes undiscovered authors. In building an empire, she has become admired as an example of what a woman can do if she sets her mind to it (Montoya, 91).


Winfrey uses personal experiences, candidly revealing her vulnerabilities, to reach her viewers on an emotional level. Called rapport talk by Time magazine, this uniquely intimate approach of “personal dialogue, confession and compassion” was ground-breaking and her viewers connected with Oprah as they would with the closest of friends. The trust that developed between Winfrey and her viewers set a solid foundation for brand development.


Beginning in the 1992-1993 television seasons, Oprah decided that she wanted to distinguish her program from other daytime talk shows by moving away from sensational topics. She wanted to be known to have a talk show that is more responsible, and would be a benefit and not belittle people. Oprah’s mission became to help her viewers live better lives through self-improvement and self-awareness. Although the show still had episodes where Oprah interviewed celebrities, it focused more on issues of personal importance. According to its official mission statement, Harpo’s goal was “to be a catalyst for transformation in people’s lives, to help them see themselves more clearly and to make the best choices they can using stories, real people’s experiences, information and ideas. Our intention is to create moments in which people can connect to the truest sense of themselves and build from there.”


Self-help books were popular for decades before reaching a peak in the late 20th century. For consumers seeking guidance or inspiration, these books were an easily accessible, affordable and anonymous way to seek personal advice. In the 1980s, Oprah recognized self-help material as a theme for daytime television. Oprah was an active participant on her show and sometimes referred to her own experiences with sexual abuse and food addiction.


In the mid 1990s, as many talk shows focused on self-help topics, The Oprah Winfrey Show introduced a personal growth theme known as “Live Your Best Life.” Winfrey inspired her viewers into action by focusing on physical and mental health, spirituality and self-fulfillment. Her audience was encouraged to exercise, meditate, read and volunteer, and Oprah persuaded them to take control of their lives and appreciate themselves. Her viewers came to associate personal growth less with the self-help authors who appeared on the show and more with Oprah herself. She added a segment called “Remembering Your Spirit,” which featured real life inspirational stories. All of this aided in the creation of a base for Oprah’s unique brand of self-help thinking.


Execution


Harpo, Inc., responsible for the production of Winfrey’s program after its separation from WLS-TV, bought a $15 million space to convert into a studio in 1988 (Famous Entrepreneurs). Harpo Studios was designed to accommodate both The Oprah Winfrey Show and other large-scale projects. There, Harpo Fims, Inc. has produced made-for-TV film projects based on classic and contemporary literature, including Tuesdays with Morrie, Their Eyes Were Watching God, and For One More Day. Many of her productions are award-winning. Harpo Studios has also created theater-released films like Beloved and The Great Debaters, which received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Motion Picture (Oprah Winfrey’s Biography).


The show is seen by an estimated 44 million viewers a week in the United States and is broadcast internationally in 144 countries (Oprah Winfrey’s Biography). Besides The Oprah Winfrey Show, Harpo Productions Inc. has created Dr. Phil, a syndicated daytime talk show, partnered with Rachael Ray in hosting a daily talk-show and created its first primetime series, Oprah's Big Give.


Beside TV producer, Winfrey is a magazine founder and editorial director. Winfrey, along with the help of Hearst Magazines, introduced O, The Oprah Magazine, in April 2000. O is a monthly women's lifestyle publication. It is credited as being the most successful magazine launch in recent history and currently has a circulation of 2.3 million readers each month (Oprah Winfrey’s Biography). Winfrey has also launched international editions of O in South Africa, extending her message to a broader audience. Today, Winfrey uses her Web site, Oprah.com, to provide resources related to The Oprah Winfrey Show and O, The Oprah Magazine. Her site offers advice to Women on everything from the mind, body and spirit to food, home and relationships. Oprah.com averages more than 6.7 million users per month (Oprah Winfrey’s Biography).


The website also includes Oprah's Book Club, which began in 1996. Every year Winfrey chooses works of fiction that she finds interesting and invites the authors on her show. Viewers have the opportunity to join Oprah's Book Club online. There are approximately 1 million members who are offered in-depth study guides, and expert Q & As (Oprah Winfrey’s Biography).


Winfrey also launched a satellite radio channel in 2006. The channel features original daily programming from Harpo Radio, Inc., which includes segments hosted by people from The Oprah Winfrey Show and O, The Oprah Magazine. She also has a 30-minute weekly radio show, Oprah's Soul Series (Oprah Winfrey’s Biography).


Winfrey has used the media to turn herself into a global brand; however, one of the key aspects that has developed her brand is her role as philanthropist. She is a big believer in education, and through her charity, The Oprah Winfrey Foundation, she has supported the education and empowerment of women, children and families from around the world, especially those who have no means (Oprah Winfrey’s Biography.) On The Oprah Winfrey Show, Winfrey encouraged viewers to use their lives to make a difference in the lives of others. One specific show led to the creation of the public charity Oprah's Angel Network in 1998. Oprah's Angel Network has raised more than $80 million, with 100 percent of audience donations going to nonprofit organizations across the globe (Oprah Winfrey’s Biography).


All of Winfrey’s projects have been deemed credible due to her brand. The Oprah brand has been developed over many years, and she has taken careful steps to maintain her brand.


Branding


Winfrey went from talk show host to the most powerful woman in America. This evolution occurred as she slowly transformed from Oprah the person to Oprah the brand. Personal Branding is the art of attracting and keeping followers by actively shaping public perception (petermontoya.com). It is possible for public figures to control the way they are perceived. Winfrey realized early that talent alone would not take her to the top of her field, so she created and promoted her unique personal brand (petermontoya.com).


Three components make up the heart of every personal brand: 1) Emotional impact, 2) Repetition and 3)Time (Montoya, 44). Emotional impact determines how someone feels about a person causing them to make a decision about their opinion on that person. A good personal brand triggers strong, positive responses in the people in its domain: confidence, admiration, fondness, trust and fascination (Montoya, 45). Winfrey triggered these emotions in her audience by sharing honest and true personal stories and struggles. A brand also must remain consistent to create an image in the minds of the audience. The best way to accomplish this is repeated exposure to the same brand message. Winfrey used multiple channels to get her message across including television, radio and magazine. Personal branding also takes time. You can’t create strong perceptions overnight. Winfrey’s show has had 23 seasons.


When in the spotlight, everything affects your personal brand including the way you talk and dress, your education, where you’re from, your spouse, car, friends, presentation skills and how well you follow through on your promises (Montoya, 36).


The key to personal branding success is defining yourself instead of letting others define you (petermontoya.com). Winfrey struggled in the beginning of her television career with negative perceptions of her image. She was seen as an overweight woman minority, which was unlike most typical television personalities. Her bosses at her first major television job in Baltimore wanted her to change her hair, lips, nose and other aspects of her appearance. She was quick to turn these potential flaws into the basis of her brand by sharing her personal struggles with the public.


It is possible to shape the public’s perception by defining strengths, values, goals and personality and presenting yourself in a compelling, persuasive manner (petermontoya.com). Winfrey constantly and consistently expressed herself and what she stood for to everyone she met. Winfrey’s ability to relate to her guests, passion for her subject matter, and willingness to be emotionally open on camera quickly made her known as a distinct persona in the talk show genre. In the image-driven world of television, Winfrey was candid about her flaws and vulnerabilities, one being her lifelong struggle to lose weight.


According to marketing and branding specialist, Peter Montoya, there are eight laws of personal branding: the laws of specialization, leadership, personality, distinctiveness, visibility, unity, persistence and goodwill. When Winfrey was developing her brand it seems that she was aware of these branding principles. Winfrey’s brand coincides with all of the Eight Laws of Personal Branding.


The Law of Specialization has to do with a brand being precise and concentrating on a single strength, talent or achievement. The concentration can focus in on many different areas including ability, behavior, lifestyle, mission, product, profession or service (petermontoya.com). Winfrey applied the Law of Specialization by differentiating herself from other talk-show hosts with positivism, ambition and an honest desire to create meaningful projects (Montoya, 92).


The Law of Leadership states that in order for a brand to have authority and credibility, the source must be perceived as a leader by their audience. Leadership stems from excellence, position or recognition (petermontoya.com). Winfrey used The Law of Leadership to make herself a mogul through hard work and a strong vision. She has become a voice of power and control in entertainment, media and publishing (Montoya, 92).


A great personal brand must be built upon the source's true personality including their flaws, according to the Law of Personality (petermontoya.com). Winfrey applied the Law of Personality by openly sharing her struggles, hopes and emotions with her audience (Montoya, 92).


The Law of Distinctiveness states that a personal brand must stand out against its competition (petermontoya.com). With the Law of Distinctiveness, Winfrey set herself apart from the dramatic and extreme talk show hosts. She chose to be a positive force, a promoter of unknown talent and an advocate for women (Montoya, 92).


In order to be successful, a brand also must be seen again and again, until it is imprinted in the minds of the audience. This is the Law of Visibility. This continual visibility leads to an assumption of quality because people assume if they see something all the time it must be better than other offers (petermontoya.com). Winfrey’s brand applies to the Law of Visibility by having a daily talk show, a magazine, movies, a radio station, national tours and philanthropic work.


The Law of Unity has to do with the private person behind the brand compared to the public brand. The two identities must be one in the same with regards to morals and behavioral code. Private conduct must coincide with the public brand (petermontoya.com). It is clear that Winfrey has applied the Law of Unity to her brand due to the lack of personal scandals that have emerged (Montoya, 92).


The Law of Persistence states that a personal brand takes time to develop. The process can be accelerated but never replaced by advertising and public relations (petermontoya.com). The Law of Persistence is exhibited by Winfrey’s consistent message to “live your best life.”


Finally, a personal brand will be more productive and last longer if the private person is perceived positively according to the Law of Goodwill (petermontoya.com). Winfrey’s adherence to the Law of Goodwill can be seen in the amount she has given back to society through her charity organizations.


Beyond the eight principles, another key aspect of branding is control. In the unique case of her brand, Winfrey is the actual content herself not just the content creator. Given that Winfrey’s life is the essence of her brand, it is not surprising that she has been reluctant to cede control of her brand. Winfrey has not licensed her name for the use on products or taken her company public. She also keeps tight control over her employees, who could essentially affect her brand. Everyone who works at Harpo must sign a lifelong confidentiality agreement.


Evaluation


Winfrey’s strategy in building her brand was clearly a success. The Oprah Winfrey Show has remained the number one talk show for 22 consecutive seasons. It is seen by an estimated 44 million viewers a week in the United States and is broadcast internationally in 144 countries. Winfrey and The Oprah Winfrey Show have received more than 40 Daytime Emmy Awards. Her magazine currently has a circulation of 2.3 million readers each month and has international editions. Winfrey is considered one of the most influential women in the world. She has won numerous awards for her business and humanitarian accomplishments. Due to her tight control of her brand and message content, Winfrey’s message to “Live Your Best Life” has remained consistent with her ideals. A list of honors includes:

Oprah's success is undeniable. According to Carmine Gallo of Business Week, "Oprah is someone I consider to be an authentic communicator, in the sense that the dictionary defines authenticity: worthy of trust. It's a refreshing change from the culture of finger-pointing we seem to find ourselves in these days."

Oprah has managed to build an empire based on honesty which is something very rare today. Oprah is always willing to admit her mistakes which seems to work to her advantage. Gallo says, "Few people are willing to fess up to mistakes that Oprah makes headlines by simply admitting she was wrong. But it's exactly why so many of Oprah's viewers feel a strong emotional connection to her." Gallo goes on to say that in his experience as a communications coach it is essential to make a strong connection with yyour audience.

Oprah is a genius. She knew exactly what she wanted and she went right after it, full bore. She deserves all the credit in the world for the empire she has constructed. And not only did she know what she wanted, she knew how to go about it. Oprah wanted to connect with viewers so she shared stories of her own heartaches and triumphs, which made viewers trust her. To me, that is why Oprah has been so influencial and successful in all of her ventures. People trust her, plain and simple. So many talk-show hosts and tv personalities are impersonal and almost seem to be acting. Viewers of Oprah know that the woman they watch every afternoon is the same woman on and off screen. Viewers have this faith in Oprah which ables them to connect with her and vice versa. Forbes magazine credits Oprah as being the single most influencial person in the world of book publishing. That's incredible when you think about it. Oprah started as a TV news anchor and created this empire that stretches from television and philanthropy, to books and magazines. If I ever write a book, I can only pray that Oprah puts it on her book club list. She's a hell of a salesman too...

The qualities and motivations that Oprah possesses make her a natural born star. With that said, other entertainment hosts like Tyra Banks have tried to emulate the empire and branding that Oprah has built. Tyra is often seen as trying to be Oprah and many critics say she will never come close. Daytime talk show hosts is not a niche market by any means because of the large number of shows that have tried to stay on the air. What makes Oprah different?

She stands by her convictions whether it means she will lose viewers or not. In 1995, Oprah brought national attention to "mad cow disease" regarding the safety of meat. Further information about the case can be found at http://www.cnn.com/US/9801/21/oprah.beef/

Although she could and more than likely did lose viewers because of her attack on the beef industry, Oprah puts her viewers safety first and foremost. Some might see this as a blatant misuse of power to produce rating but from a public relation stand-point the concern for her viewers fits into her branded image perfectly. People want to know they are cared about and someone is watching out for them. If anything, loyal viewers know they have the Oprah brand on their side.

Oprah knows exactly what she is doing. She’s everywhere! I think the best way to gain exposure is to give gifts away for free, and she does just that only on a very large scale. I remember one time she gave a car to everyone in her ausience. That is unbelievable. I found it out on the news so obviously it got publicity. Not to menttion the schools she has been building. Oprah is extremely popular with every demographic.

According to msn.com, “Oprah's audience is predominantly female, white, and over the age of 55. Nationally 7.4 million people watch Oprah daily -- about 2.6% of American households. Four percent of American women (about 5.7 million) watch her daily, compared with 1.2% of men (1.7 million people). Overall, 2% of all 18- to 49-year-olds watch Oprah.”

The Oprah campaign is obviously working and will contiune to work. These numbers don’t lie. She even has her own magazine. Oprah is not just a talk show host, she is a brand. She is a feminin focus that connot be stopped. What she does is great for our country and also the world.

Oprah has created a brand just like the blog said. There are public relations problems for her to face. The all-girls school in South Africa suspended 7 students for violating the school's code of conduct. The students were harassing other students sexually. This is the second incident of sexual misconduct at the school for impoverished girls.
"I'm disappointed that several of our students chose to disregard the school's rules. It's disheartening when any student has to be suspended or expelled and it's a process that involves serious review and consideration," Winfrey said in a statement to "Entertainment Tonight" Tuesday.

Oprah commented about the scandal at her school in a New York Daily News Story "O no, not again! Oprah 'disheartened' by 2nd sex scandal in 2 years"
"Indiscretions resulting in disciplinary action are common in schools all over the world. Unfortunately, because of my name these common infractions place the Academy in the media spotlight."

She is correct that having this school part of her name and brand so to speak means when there is a scandal it gets more coverage than an average school. Especially since it's an international story the American media does not normally cover many international stories that don't involve the U.S. This school is clearly becoming a problem for the Oprah brand, but it has not affected her popularity as far as I can tell. This goes to show what a positive image she has created for her brand. I find it strange that she hasn't made more than that comment about the whole issue. I feel that since she spent so much money and invested her efforts in creating this school she would be more proactive in trying to prevent incidents that harm the schools image and her's as well. She is not working as hard on image maintance as I think might be necessary in such a situation since she is supposed to be a genius.

Chapter 1: My adventures in google-land

“Results 1 - 10 of about 20,400,000 for oprah. (0.09 seconds)”

Did anyone else notice this?

I definitely agree with what Laura and Melanie stated or hinted at: image control and maintenance would and should be high on Oprah’s agenda. At the same time, it seems that she has made a name for herself for simply being Oprah. I personally think of her as someone who is completely unapologetic for the way that she is. It would seem almost illegitimate for her to cover her own ass on things.

To err is human. Oprah is no exception. I’m just surprised that after all these years, the only things I can say about the woman are good. I don’t really think of any of her missteps, and instead Oprah and charity go hand-in-hand to me. I couldn’t help but to laugh when watching Ocean’s 13 (or 12… I lost track after the re-conception of the first one). At one point the character of Danny Ocean is crying because he is so touched that Oprah is giving a house to a family who had no place to live.

It’s kind of strange looking through google and what are considered related searches. Beside the obvious differentiations in her name or basic information about her accomplishments, her life, her pictures, etc. there are also some things that may indicate what people think about her.

So where am I going with this? Take a second and search for “Oprah Winfrey”.

You might notice that “Tyra Banks” is in the top 8. This makes sense, as Melanie mentioned in her post. The two are popular talk-show hosts+. But what about the fact that “Rosa Parks” is also one of the most popular related searches? Why Rosa Parks? The obvious assumption is that the two are considered strong and important African-American women. Could Oprah be seen as iconic in the post-60s fight for civil rights?

On a final note…

Results 1 - 10 of about 272,000,000 for obama. (0.07 seconds)

Headache?

It seems like everything Oprah touches is a success. She is one of the most influential women in America. Prior to the presidential election, people even said they would vote for Oprah if she ran for president.

In agreement with the case study and most of the other posts, Oprah built her brand and herself on honesty. She allowed viewers not only to see her compassion for them, but let them get a glimpse of the struggles and hardships she faced to get her where she is today.

When Oprah began her television career, Time magazine wrote "As interviewers go, she is no match for, say, Phil Donahue...What she lacks in journalistic toughness, she makes up for in plainspoken curiosity, robust humor and, above all empathy."

Because she didn't try to sensationalize her show but instead mainly focused on real issues, the Oprah Winfrey show and Oprah herself became someone the public could trust.

As the first woman billionaire, Oprah's success is obvious. An important aspect of personal branding is accountability. Oprah handles this extremely well in the case of her school scandal. According to msnbc, "Oprah Winfrey opened a school Tuesday for disadvantaged girls, fulfilling a promise she made to former President Nelson Mandela six years ago and giving more than 150 students a chance for a better future.'I wanted to give this opportunity to girls who had a light so bright that not even poverty could dim that light,' Winfrey said at a news conference."

After the alleged scandal at Oprah's school she said, "Oprah Winfrey said Monday she hopes anyone found guilty of abuse at her South Africa school for disadvantaged girls will be put behind bars, but she doesn't think the scandal has damaged her personal reputation." It is evident that Oprah's brand is so powerful that even the sexual abuse scandal did not affect her show, magazine, or personal brand.

Oprah Winfrey is the true image for success. She has been able to expand her talent as a talk show host to a brand through media channels such as television, magazines, radio, and books. In everything that Oprah does, I personally feel the audience’s ability to relate themselves to Oprah was such a key in building the success she has today. In comparison to other talk show, Oprah not only allows her viewers to relate to her, but she discusses topics that viewers are able to relate as well as guests that share similar stories as viewers. Oprah’s ability to open herself up to her audience really has helped her create her positive and likeable image. In addition, her work as a philanthropist has definitely helped people become more aware of who she is and what she wants to do. It’s clear that in everything Oprah has done, she has worked to get it. It’s not like she was able to just create this entire empire overnight. She had to take steps to get to the point she is at today, and this is no different than any brand or company who has to work to expand their name and values to the public. It is very impressive when you really look at how many areas Oprah has been able to work in and how successful she has been in every area.

Although I am very familiar with Oprah’s work over the year, I was interested to read viewpoints from people in the communications/pr field about Oprah’s media influence. I was able to find an article from PR-inside.com that gave the opinion of Mosnar Communications, Inc., a luxury public relations and global marketing firm. The article recognized that the “Oprah branding image has the ability to sustain an economic downturn and fans will continue to be loyal.” As of 2008, Mosnar stated “that the Oprah Winfrey brand remains the most sought after and trusted media influence.” Because of the brand that Oprah has created for herself, it’s really unbelievable how influential she has become in promoting and increasing the popularity and sales of company’s products.

Because Oprah Winfrey has such an incredible following in America she must be careful when it comes to managing her personal brand and public relations. One situation which Oprah faced with the meat industry shows us how Oprah handled her brand when it was under attack.

Years ago, Oprah hosted Howard Lyman on her show to talk about the safety of American beef. Lyman made false claims that beef was unsafe to eat and Oprah responded by saying, "I've just been stopped cold from eating another hamburger." The broadcast of the show led to the loss of $11-million in cattle futures and upset the Amarillo-based cactus feeders who decided to sue her.

In the end, Oprah won the legal battle without tarnishing her brand. According to Gibbs & Soell Public Relations, "She treated the
whole event as an opportunity, not as a problem or an unwanted distraction. Without yielding an inch, she swept into Amarillo like she was visiting long-lost relatives. She brought her
television cameras. She hugged her
supporters on national television. She moved production to temporary facilities in town, taped her daytime show in the evening and didn’t miss a beat."

This is just one more example of how Oprah used her emotional connection with viewers and fan base to make her brand work for her.

Oprah Winfrey encompasses everything that makes success. I think that so much of her past contributes to what she has made for herself. As a child, Oprah was molested by an uncle and raped by her cousin. This went on for years and lead up to her pregnancy. She gave birth to a stillborn boy at 14. I remember watching a show about Oprah and when I was watching this and listening to her tell her story, I was in complete and utter awe. She wasn't afraid to tell her story to the whole world because she “to be a catalyst for transformation in people’s lives, to help them see themselves more clearly and to make the best choices they can using stories, real people’s experiences, information and ideas. Our intention is to create moments in which people can connect to the truest sense of themselves and build from there.” She embodied this ideal completely. And I truly believe it is because of her past that she has done so well for herself. She knows what is important and what should be represented to the public. The fact that she can relate to so many people is astounding and says a lot about what she stands for. Additionally, as it was mentioned, that Oprah giving a car to everyone in the audience... that is INSANE!! Any person who can give so much and be worth over a billion dollars and is still down to earth... knows exactly what to do to continue with the right image that will keep bringing in those dollar signs.

Han said...

Oprah Winfrey is the perfect embodiment of an influential opinion leader, as well as a global citizen. In all honesty, although she advocated for and generated over a million votes for Obama in the democratic primaries (http://freakonomics.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/08/06/so-much-for-one-person-one-vote/); if she would have run for president herself, I wouldn't have been too surprised if, "Madame President" was the current presidential title uttered into the press conference microphones.

When it comes to the branding campaign itself, Harpo Inc. was advantageous in tactfully extending her brand from the Emmy-award winning talk show through a variety of alternative mediums (radio, film, print, online). Not only is her television show the highest-rated talk show of all time, but her book club determines who makes the New York Time's top sellers every year. Now that's effectively extending your influence and power.

I think that Oprah's strongest attribute in regards to marketing herself as a personal brand is her ability to truly humanize the "Law of Personality" by honestly opening herself up day after day to engage with her audience. Her personable nature exudes a sense of trust, genuineness and credibility for her discussions and platforms. And those credentials would eventually establish her a loyal fan base, which is exemplified by the fact that her talk show has remained in the number one spot for 22 consecutive seasons.

And her global citizenship only continues to add to her genuine image. With $51 million in donations for the Angel Network, a $40 million investment into a South African girl's school, and the absurdity of giving away 276 new Pontiac G6's to an audience on her Sept 13, 2004 show, the term, "philanthropic" does not graze the tip of the iceberg for all of Oprah's humanitarian accomplishments.

Jess said...

I think it says something that you don't often see Oprah getting negative publicity. Despite the problems with her school, the Oprah empire hasn't lost any of its influence. Her brand continues to be a household name, and millions of people, especially women, hang on her every word. It amazes me the power one woman holds over this entire country. People read the books she tells them to and use the products she endorses. Moreover, she has the influence to tell those same people to stop liking one of those products, like she did with James Frey's book. What makes Oprah such a hit with her viewers is that despite her success, she still seems like one of them. She seems approachable, and like Lauren said, the viewers feel a strong emotional connection to her. She seems truly genuine.

Hanna said...

Oprah winfrey is the most powerful women on the earth. She made her personal brand according to her desire. She is very much successful in her business. She makes influential marketing strategy. These are very much helpful to get the success in the business. natural skin care products

Well done, nice and interesting article that state that three components make up the heart of every personal brand: 1) Emotional impact, 2) Repetition and 3)Time,Emotional impact determines how someone feels about a person causing them to make a decision about their opinion on that person. A good personal brand triggers strong, positive responses in the people in its domain: confidence, admiration, fondness, trust and fascination, Winfrey triggered these emotions in her audience by sharing honest and true personal stories and struggles. A brand also must remain consistent to create an image in the minds of the audience. The best way to accomplish this is repeated exposure to the same brand message, Thanks.

There are certain things about the concept of rainwater harvesting that can sometimes be taken for granted, especially if you've been familiar with the process for a while. This was certainly the case for me while talking to a neighbour about rainwater tanks.

oak furniture collection said...

Oak furniture has spent many years at the top of the charts when it comes to favourites. Its appeal is due to the lovely warm, coarse texture and its functionality. As it is a very hard wood, oak is superb for making furniture which will stand the test of time. If you have a young family and need tables and chairs which are robust, oak is definitely worth a thought. Although it is often quite expensive, you will find that the items made from oak will keep their good looks and will probably still be around to take a battering from your children's children in years to come. The price tag on some items may put people off buying, but, if you were to consider getting some oak unfinished furniture, you may be able to save yourself quite a few dollars.
