Describe the objective of the promotion.
With global players entering the Indian market, the soft drink concentrate brand, Rasna was losing its loyalty base. The core Target Audience of 6-10 years old, considered the brand to be dated, boring and stagnant. Parents perceived it to be artificial and chemically formulated with near zero nutrition. But had nostalgic appeal for the brand and took pride in its Indian origins. The task was to create a promotion that revives the brand, makes it relevant to parents who pay for it while tickling the imagination of children who consumed it and strongly influenced the purchase decision.
Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation
The concept of the promotion was to convince the dismissive, disapproving, skeptical yet nostalgic parent as well as the fun hungry imaginative kid. The integrated implementation across the Indian retail landscape and web media influenced the audience's worldview - reinforcing the positive nostalgic appeal, establishing nutrition capabilities, demonstrating fun through augmented reality that activated a unique game in synch with one of the 9 characters inside the pack identified through a specialised software that comprehended the characters displayed on a webcam.
Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results
Within the first quarter of the launch of the promotion, the sales jumped by 24%, the brand awareness scores went up by 90% and relevance scores for both children and parents went up by 150% and 75% respectively.
Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service
The instant popularity of mythological characters on the reverse of each pack was further leveraged by the augmented reality that could recognise which character was flashed on the webcam. This helped drive sales as kids started buying more packs to be able to play the unique game associated with the pack on the web.
The Promo / PR Ad titled THINKING INSIDE THE BOX was done by Rediffusion Y&R advertising agency for product: SOFT DRINK CONCENTRATE (brand: PIOMA INDUSTRIES) in India. It was released in the Feb 2010.
