Mitashi Launches New Smartphone, Says it is For Young Girls With “Vibrant Moods”
Mitashi today unveiled a new smartphone for the Indian market which is targeted at young women. It is an affordable device with some decent features but Mitashi’s marketing pitch for the phone can only be described as mildly offensive.
The company begins its press release by saying that its new phone, the “WattaGirl” is designed especially for young girls and their vibrant moods. It goes on to say that WattaGirl can hold 2 sim cards, so that all of a girl’s world can come neatly packed in one awesome phone. The press release ends by saying that a girl’s phone is an extension of a girl’s “colourful personality” referring to the brightly colored back flaps, that come along with the device. The WattaGirl offers 1.2GHz Dual Core processor along with 512 MB RAM and comes with a 5-inch display. The device is priced at Rs.4,999.
Now dear Mitashi, we understand you have to dial up the sales pitch in your press release but you don’t have to sound so condesending. How about using a language in the future that doesn’t undermine your potential consumers? It’s not that hard, let us show you how it’s done.
How we would’ve written it:
“Mitashi launches ‘WattaGirl’, the coolest new phone in town, designed for young girls as well as ladies young at heart.
