Dissecting Nepa Rudraksha Influencer Marketing Campaign 

Case Study

Product/ Service

Nepa Rudraksha is a brand that makes original Rudrakshas. They are Nepal’s only ISO certified distributors of exclusive and authentic Nepali Rudraksha and shaligram since 1973.


The objective of the campaign was to introduce the brand and build credibility in the market. This was planned to be achieved through educating people about the scientific and philosophical aspects of Rudraksha in understandable and entertaining podcasts.

Target Audience

The campaign was briefly created for the high-income group and Non-Resident Indians in the age group of 30-50 years. This demographic group was chosen as the target audience because, presumably, they would be interested in cultural and spiritual items and would also be able to understand the value of genuine Rudraksha beads.


This campaign’s major emphasis was on Indians and Indian communities living abroad ,specifically in regions that are known to have large proportions of NRIs.


Launched prior to Shivratri, the podcast by the brand created curiosity among the target group regarding Rudraksha, thus creating a rush of interest from both within and outside the country.  The combination of the effective utilization of influencer marketing, as well as the incorporation of engaging and informative content, paved the way to a highly successful campaign with the goal of not only boosting brand awareness but also to share valuable information regarding the religious value of Rudraksha.
