Approach

Research: The major challenge that we analysed was how they could reach out to local customers, who tend to purchase leader brands like:Tata Salt. Making people shift from their loyal brands was the major challenge. So, we decided to target mothers, and make them concerned about their child’s iodine needs. Thereafter striking a balance to this cause of concern with the product as the ultimate solution. The client required to continuously hammer their customer minds. This meant advertising in large number of spots per day in leading radio stations.The Indian Readership Survey (IRS) results confirm Radio City 91.1 FM as the third most popular and the fastest growing FM station in Chennai. So, Radio CIty was chosen to AIR the Ad.
