Date of publication: July 1, 1970


The current campaign for Good News, which has been running for approximately two years, was designed to inform consumers that Good News is a boxed chocolate assortment made up of half milk and half plain chocolates. The 'Guillotine' and 'Karate' commercials used to demonstrate those are known to have had a considerable impact. It felt however that the brand image is now ready for further development. The objective of the new advertising is not only to communicate information about a boxed chocolate assortment but also to involve consumers with the brand in a more effective way. The commercials tested in this research ere 'Airport' and 'Chess Game'.

About this collection:
Peter Cooper (1936-2010) was co-founder of Cooper Research & Marketing, later CRAM International, with his wife Jackie French. Cooper studied Clinical Psychology at the University of Manchester where he became a Lecturer in the early 1960s. He became involved in conducting commercial Motivational Research and by 1968 opened Cooper Research & Marketing in Manchester. Cooper was one of the key pioneers of what we now know as Qualitative Research. CRAM opened its London office in Wimpole Street in 1970 and moved to 53 St Martins Lane, WC2N 4EA, in 1972 where it remained until Peter's passing in 2010. The company changed its name to CRAM International in around 1985/86, reflecting the increasingly international nature of its work. The CRAM/Peter Cooper Archive Collection, which includes commercial research reports and early academic papers, has been preserved by Peter's children, Diana, Helen and Jonathan, and his colleague Simon Patterson. The scanning of the Archive has been supported by ESOMAR, AMSR, Peter's colleague Dr Alan Branthwaite & family, the Cooper family, and QRi Consulting. The CRAM/Peter Cooper Archive Collection is managed by QRi Consulting. The CRAM logo and CRAM International name are Registered Trademarks and the property of QRi Consulting.
