If the targeting is primarily female, living in suburbia, married with kids, then it's spot on - because, as we know, keeping up with the Joneses is very important.

Differentiation, or stand-out in a highly competitive market sector is crucial, because consumers are bombarded by a multitude of different messages through a plethora of channels.
