Panel 1

Is there a right answer to the question ‘Is TV still the most powerful brand-building medium for marketers?’ asked Saad Khan, National Planning Director, Strategic Planning, FCB Ulka, who chaired the panel discussion yesterday at exchange4media’s TV First conference in Mumbai.  

The discussion included panel speakers Sumit Mathur, Director Marketing, Kellogg India; Rajiv Dubey, Head of Media, Dabur; Vivek Sharma, Chief Marketing Officer, Pidilite; Avinash Kumar, AVP Marketing, Patanjali and Ajay Dang, Joint Executive President & Head – Marketing, UltraTech Cement. 

Khan explained how the media landscape has changed over the years in a big way. He spoke of the yesteryears when generations were brought up with only two mediums – television and print. But today there is digital, OTT, augmented reality and more mediums are springing up. “Digital is touching 300 million plus people, TV is reaching 800 million plus people, print is going to millions of households. In this complex scenario and with the availability of multiple mediums, how do you define the role of each medium; how do u manage the marketing mix or media mix?” questioned Khan to the panel members.

It‘s a million dollar question that media planning agencies have been solving quipped Mathur. “The task for us to grow our businesses is to know what is our source of growth, where they are, and how do we reach them in the most cost effective way. I'm a firm believer on reach; delivering more reach in the most cost effective way. To deliver this reach it is the medium that ensures how I can do it within the budget we have. Different brands will different requirements, so what works for them is important to understand,” explains Mathur.

He added, “If we look at pan India scale point of view, we have clearly done a lot of television, and it won’t go away soon. Television will always be the medium that gives the right ROI and right reach; it does come with spillovers and that’s the challenge; that is the role where a lot of good brand managers, good marketers will make the difference. How do you then top that reach in a cost-effective way? This is where digital comes into the picture. Digital will give you incremental reach. So then how do you play the mix to your benefit and the geography you are in and to the life stage your brand is in will have to be taken into consideration.” 

Kumar revealed, "I'm not a fan of TV advertising though we did spend a lot on it. Talking about television viewing, whenever there is an ad break you change your channel then how do you know it's hitting the right person/ consumer. The whole game is to reach 780 million people by TV. Today, the world has changed especially when u have 550 million people on high-speed internet, at least in digital I can know how many people I have reached. I know who I’m interacting with.” 

Kumar explained how the television is no more the 'idiot box;' and how it has become more intelligent and interactive. “There is no doubt when you are a doing national campaign and brand building, you have to bombard through television but how many people are receptive and how they are going to respond or embrace your brand is going to be a challenge. From tomorrow, February 1, everything will change with the new TRAI guidelines. More than 50 million smart TVs are going to be operational by 2020. When you talk about TV, there is no longer the concept of prime time. In the new world 'My Time' will be the new prime time, it will have nothing to do with time slots,” opined Kumar.

On the other hand, Sharma was firm on the belief that TV is a powerful medium and will remain powerful as you use it; the way marketers will use it will have to change. “Television will give the highest reach even if you want to build a scale brand. But the role of TV will change because other mediums are encroaching into the TV viewing habit, distracted TV viewing. Sole TV viewing is 40 per cent, rest is all family viewing. The reality is that we still have single TV households. Even the youth living in towns 3 and 4 are digitally savvy. The way we use TV will not primarily be the medium to put brand message where you spray and pray and then see if the task is done. There should be a message to create a need,” informed Sharma.

Continued Sharma, “TV has a halo effect on the impact of other media that is digital. An Accenture report says that the ROI of TV is highest followed by paid search, paid search gets positively affected by TV advertising. You can’t walk away from TV advertising. We have observed the branded searches go up dramatically. I don’t think you can build brands only through digital. Digital is a medium of paradoxes, it’s a low attention span medium. But it also happens that if the subject interests you then you get involved and share the video on social media. Television has to be used in conjunction with these mediums in a complementary fashion. And content is going to matter a lot. TV will continue to play a big role in driving brands in the minds of the people. Digital can complement the logical conclusion of closing the sales.”

Dubey exclaimed that no brand in FMCG can be built without TV. “Anything that can provide entertainment to people should be the screen to advertise on. Numbers are in favour of the broadcast medium. In digital, measurability is a big question, nobody shares data hence unless you experience it you cannot put money behind it. There is no model which can tell you the sufficient amount to invest, in TV we have an empirical data. So, in my opinion, I will continue to invest in TV but not ignore digital,” said Dubey.

Dang said, “Digital is the new shiny object. It is hugely overestimated, and yes it is changing the landscape. The core question is has TV's effectiveness gone down? Reach has not gone down, time on TV has gone up, and video content is going up whether you watch it on the idiot box or on mobile doesn’t matter. If you are looking at reach and frequency nothing substitutes TV. Despite digital growing, viewership share is 50 – 55 per cent on TV even now. In defence of TV, completion rates are 100 per cent, you watch an ad on the same parameters that you evaluate the other shiny object.”

He added, “At Ultratech we cannot teach TV consumers how to build their homes or give simple a checklist, that task we do through digital. But from a brand-building perspective TV's effectiveness has not gone down.”

Sharma says effectiveness in TV will have to get down to sharpen mechanisms or complement with other mediums to define effectiveness as ‘am I reaching my audience at that time when he is the in the cycle of thinking about my category or the product’, and that is going to be the name of the game. 

Kumar said, “OTT platform has come into play. In India the adoption process is slow, we have been brought up on TV. There is resistance to change. People don’t understand digital well. When I’m talking to a customer I want a grip on the data that I’m getting into, and that data is not available on TV. My expenses for digital space will increase. But you have to have an integrated market plan. TV needs to be supported by digital or else your TV plan will not work anymore. The data, money and the budget are going to shift for sure.” 

Mathur believes that if we have our consumer journeys really thought through then this automatically gets solved. “When it comes to driving awareness, driving wide persuasion TV will play a role but to drive advocacy TV can’t do anything; here Twitter and Instagram will work brilliantly for you. As marketers, it is important that we do our homework. The brand's role in a consumer’s life is not just watching a TV ad, he will engage with the brand at different levels, we clearly need to identify the objective at various points,” he explained.

Sharma said mapping the consumer journeys is imperative. “Consumers believe brands less and word of mouth and influencers more. So brands will have to use TV to do general awareness and brand building. But to get them to move from consideration to preference and purchase, you will have to use other mediums, notably digital, to drive influencer marketing. So when experts speak about your brand then people will believe your brand and that is one thing TV cannot do. As marketers as we go into the future, TV will remain the largest and powerful medium but the way we assign objectives to TV versus other media will have to be more granular only then can TV be made more effective,” he asserted. 

Khan pointed out that Amazon and Google had to come on TV to advertise and that says a lot about the strength of the medium so does that mean that TV helps you scale up?

Sharma said the fundamental question to ask is whom am I building it for and at what scale? “To achieve scale in India you need television. TV will be a curious mix of content and screen size. It will also become smart now that OTT is there. We as marketers will have to become smarter to see how we integrate our brand messages into OTT without being intrusive,” he explained.

Khan concluded the discussion by stating that both TV and digital are important, and if you want to achieve scale in the country television is the way to go.

Hoopr launches music licensing plans for brands, digital platforms, production houses

This marks the platform’s entry into the B2B segment

By exchange4media Staff | Jan 31, 2023 11:35 AM   |   2 min read

hoopr

Music licensing platform Hoopr has now launched plans for brands, production houses, agencies and digital platforms to license music. This marks Hoopr’s entry into the B2B segment after raising $1.5 million in seed funding and the subsequent acquisition of 65,000+ users across India since July 2022.

Giving further insights, Gaurav Dagaonkar, CEO and Co-founder, Hoopr, said, "Businesses today are adopting the mindset of a creator and taking steps to put out content that is relevant to their target audience on a daily basis. Considering the growth of the internet and the increase in consumption of video, a large chunk of this content released by brands or on behalf of brands is in the form of videos. Against this backdrop, the need for copyright safe music that is cleared across multiple platforms has emerged as a strong need. At Hoopr, we’re not only addressing this exact need but are also offering a diverse collection of music that is very diverse and as a result a perfect fit with different use cases and geographic sensibilities across India. We’ve also priced the product in a way that ensures accessibility across the board – from start-ups to large businesses. Furthermore, we’re also offering custom solutions for enterprises such as digital media platforms and brands."

The clearance of Hoopr’s B2B licence covers platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Podcasts, Tiktok, and other avenues such as radio, TV, OTT, etc. In addition to this, the business plans offered by Hoopr also allow for the usage of licensed music in live commerce and on influencer-led videos. With new channels of user acquisition such as these becoming ever more prevalent and providing tangible gains for brands across the board, it’s imperative to utilize the best available resources for such activities. This includes music where not only would an entity want music that is specifically curated for a particular use case or theme, but that which is also cleared for usage on such channels.

StanPlus rebranded as RED.Health

The rebranding exercise extends to the brand's logo, website and social media channels

By exchange4media Staff | Jan 30, 2023 4:38 PM   |   4 min read

Prabhdeep

Medical emergency response platform StanPlus today announced four new business verticals to create, build and offer a holistic Emergency Care Network in the country. The company will build the new businesses under a new identity, RED.Health. The name change is rooted in the company’s commitment to strengthen India’s Emergency Medical System through Rapid Emergency Dispatch.

StanPlus, started in 2015, today has been synonymous with saving lives by providing state of the art Ambulances in just 8 minutes. The company built a multi-city network of 5000+ ambulances with top-of-the-line equipment for critical and non-critical care. Known as India's version of 911, the rebranding will further build on the narrative through a broader spectrum of services. Under the RED.Health umbrella, the company will offer four new business verticals inline with its mission to build India’s largest medical emergency response network. These include:

RED Ambulances: RED has redefined the emergency response system by providing ambulances in just 8 minutes. Expanding its ambulance portfolio, RED will now provide Road ambulances, Air ambulances (RED Air Guardian), Bereavement services (Asth), and Standby ambulances for corporates and events for citizens.
RED Assist: RED Assist has two segments, one for the hospital partners which includes Centralised Ambulance Management and Outsourcing (CAMO) and other for Corporate partners which includes doctor-on-call, an online consultation service that links patients with doctors in real time. A doctor can be consulted for a variety of health issues, from general medical questions to specific health concerns.
RED Priority Clinics: This vertical aims to connect rural India to the vital healthcare system and provide day-to-day health advisory. Red Clinics provides integrated facilities for consultation, diagnosis, preventive health checks and medicine delivery. RED Clinics will also integrate with Occupational Health Centers (OHCs) and Infirmary of Corporates, to give best-in-class 1st degree health care and patient preparation in case of emergency evacuation.
RED Academy: It is a dedicated vertical that provides emergency response training for the 'Golden Hour', and it aims to integrate trained paramedics into the healthcare infrastructure. This segment will also help enterprises and corporates to ensure the safety of their employees in case of medical emergencies, through employee training about critical actions during emergencies like giving CPR to a colleague on the office floor.

To expand its current offerings, the company is also establishing a technology center within, namely RED Edge, that will strengthen the existing technical support and work on new product development for all the new business verticals. Red Edge, with a vision to revolutionise India's emergency response system with AI and GPS Mapping, will be leveraged under Suhas Kulkarni’s leadership, CPTO, and Founding member, RED.Health

Highlighting the larger vision for the brand, Prabhdeep Singh, Founder and CEO, RED.Health, said, “India is making progress in addressing the over 500,000 emergency cases through timely interventions each year. Since the concept of EMS is fairly new, The biggest challenge for EMS has been infrastructure and manpower. With the launch of our new verticals, we are embarking on a new endeavour to build India’s largest emergency network. Our mission is to build this through partnerships and training to deliver expert care with speed, empathy and reliability. Our tech-led services are the solution in the time of crisis and as we transition into RED.Health, we are staying true to our mission of patient first approach of saving lives”

The rebranding coincides with the shift in the brand’s logo, website and social media channels with the campaign being visible across multiple communication touch points including digital, outdoor and social. In the process of rebranding, the company has also completely rebranded its ambulances and interiors/exteriors of the Clinics, along with our regional offices. Moreover to strengthen the new brand’s presence, the company also has rebranded the uniforms of its ground staff like drivers and paramedics.

RED.Health (formerly known as StanPlus) has raised $22.6Mn so far from investors like HealthQuad, Kalaari Capital and HealthX Capital Singapore amongst others. RED Ambulances has a partner fleet of 5000+ ambulances, 10+ air ambulances, partnership with 300+ hospitals, and a team of 1200+ medical care experts that is assisting 30L lives every year.

Melorra shows why jewellery makes a great gift for men and women in Valentine's Day ad

The #PartnerInSuccess campaign advocates equality in love, effort, time and care in relationships

By exchange4media Staff | Jan 30, 2023 2:29 PM   |   2 min read

Melorra

Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and couples are looking for the best way to express their love and fondness for each other, and it’s often shown through gifts. For this season of love, Melorra , one of India’s fastest-growing D2C brands, is here with its new campaign, #PartnerInSuccess, run across social media platforms. The campaign advocates for equal efforts, love, time & care for partners in romantic relationships.

The idea behind #PartnerInSuccess is that gifting is not a one-way street; women can also express their love through thoughtful gifts for their partners. The campaign emphasises companionship and support in relationships. It seeks to debunk the idea that only men can gift jewellery to their partners. The underlying notion is that relationships have evolved, and so should gifting. This is reflected in Melorra’s video ad.

The ad features a couple supporting each other during challenging times. The video starts with the man, who always stands by his partner during her rough days, ensuring she achieves her goal of being selected for the soccer team. Later, the woman gifts him a ring to appreciate his commitment and trust. The campaign reflects the fact that standing for one another as a couple can go a long way in helping each other fulfil their dreams.

Speaking on the launch, Saroja Yeramilli, Founder & CEO, said, “Valentine’s Day has become just as big a celebratory event as birthdays and anniversaries, especially in terms of gifting. However, it’s often portrayed with only the woman on the receiving end. With our new digital campaign, #PartnerInSuccess, we want to push forward the idea that relationships are about mutual support and efforts, and gifting is not a one-way street. Women can show their appreciation towards their partners through gifts too! Therefore, all customers can choose from our extensive collections that start at the most affordable pricing.”

With 16,000+ designs for Her, Melorra has one of the largest collections of affordable fine jewellery designs that are perfect for gifting.  Melorra has also recently launched men’s collection. This campaign primarily targets men and women between the ages of 25 and 40 and offers jewellery starting at INR 3000. The brand delivers its products in 26,000+ pin codes across India, making its mark throughout, including in villages with less than 10,000 to cities above 1 million.
