The objective of The Organic World’s campaign was brand awareness and increasing footfall to their physical stores in Bengaluru. The target audience for such online organic product retail stores were consumers who prefer organic food products in low, mid and high income groups.
For this particular campaign, The Organic World took the approach of creating a healthy eating and lifestyle experience for its consumers, which was reflected in their audio ads. The brand wanted to position itself as an online retail store that offers organic and healthy food options for all. Hence the target audience belonged to low, mid and high income groups.
The campaign was run in a tier 1 city like Bengaluru with the aim to increase footfall and make people aware about their offer, targeting a mass audience was a good approach to reach out to people from all income groups.
Keeping the campaign’s approach in mind, we can conclude that radio advertising could prove to be the most effective media for this campaign.
Considering that the campaign’s target audience was spread across a variety of income groups- low, middle and high, the requirement was for a media option that could target people in all the three categories simultaneously.
Also, the brand needed to run the campaign in Bangalore. The middle and high income group of Bangalore could be put under the category of working professionals and so an advertising medium was required which had a higher probability of being consumed by this category of audience.
The idea behind selection of radio was that out of every other media options, working professionals had a higher probability of being exposed to radio while commuting to and back from work. Since the objective was to create brand awareness, repeatedly playing radio ads would help establish the brand in the listeners’ mind.
The campaign was run on major English, Hindi and Kannada radio stations of Bangalore to target the cosmopolitan as well as local public of the metro city. The reason behind picking English, Hindi and Kannada language radio stations was because the brand wanted to target a wide audience in Bangalore and get maximum footfall.
Twenty seconds long ads were broadcasted on Fever FM, Radio One FM, Indigo FM, and Big FM on weekdays on prime-time that is, 8am-12pm and 5pm-10pm, with an intention to increase footfall in the stores over the weekends. The selection of these particular stations was because the majority of listeners of these stations fall under the category of young, urban, working professionals, which is quite similar to the brand’s target audience.
What made the campaign unique and hard hitting?
The jingle ads by The Organic World were engaging and delivered the brand’s message of being a ‘healthy and organic’ option in a very clear manner, at the same time stressing on their 20% off on 20 organic groceries offer.
