Keeping in mind the approach that was taken for the campaign, the advertising medium selected was digital – specifically Hotstar. Read below to know why Hotstar was considered to be the perfect fit for Clovia’s brand awareness and performance campaign. 

For pan India mass targeting, nothing can be better than digital advertising as it would not only ensure a low cost per reach but also would boost brand awareness. 

When it comes to digital advertising, very few platforms provide a reach as wide as Hotstar- which has a reach of 200-230 million. 78% of the platform’s audience is NCCS A/B. Also, 69% of Hotstar’s app users and 79% of website users are below the age of 35 years.

When it comes to the type of targeting, Hotstar had the required audience cohorts the campaign needed, which was targeting women who fell under the category of :

  1. Frequent travelers/ young working professionals or students whose work require them to move around more frequently. 
  2. Online shoppers interested in beauty or lifestyle products.

Therefore, after finalizing the platform, two advertising models were adopted for this case:

For Cost Per Completed View (CPCV), a 10 sec video ad was run. This Type of advertising enables the advertiser to only pay for a video ad once the user has finished watching the entire video. Sometimes a view is considered ‘completed’ when the user has finished watching a certain length of time instead of the whole video. For instance, in Facebook, a “completed view” is defined as 10 seconds.

For Cost Per Click (CPC), a combination of carousel cards and video ads were run. The CPC model, also known as Cost Per Click model, involves an advertiser paying for an ad based on the number of times that people click on a display ad attached to their sites. This advertising approach was selected because video ads are effective for brand awareness and carousel ads are good for getting clicks.


For Cost Per Click (CPC), a combination of carousel cards and video ads were run. The creatives for Clovia were as follows;

Clovia Ad 1
Clovia Ad 2
Clovia Ad 3
Clovia Ad 4


The campaign was delivered as per planned impressions and Clovia had good visibility in the market.
